A new traffic ramp along Floridian Way has opened up, easing travel near the Magic Kingdom Parking Lots, Walt Disney World Car Care Center, and Disney’s Polynesian Village and Grand Floridian Resorts.
If you find yourself behind the wheel, here’s a look at what you can expect during your next car commute along World Drive and Floridian Way near Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
The simplified ramp reroutes Floridian Way as part of an ongoing project to improve traffic outside Magic Kingdom. Walt Disney World filed a permit for the construction in 2020, but construction was paused in the summer of 2021. Now, more than two years later, it appears the project is nearing completion, and now open to traffic.
The project as a whole involved the realignment and reconstruction of northbound and southbound World Drive with various bridges and flyovers built. The extension and realignment project also included widening existing World Drive, constructing new ramps connecting World Drive and Bear Island Road, and additional ramps directly connecting the Magic Kingdom parking road to the Car Care Center.
The construction should make navigating between Magic Kingdom parking, the Car Care Center, and the resorts along Floridian Way much easier, simplifying traffic flows and, hopefully, stifling delays.
