Walt Disney World Open to SunRail Train Station at Disney Springs

In a statement to Orlando Business Journal, Walt Disney World said they would be open to a SunRail station at Disney Springs.

We have long been open to discussions around the proposed SunRail expansion to Disney Springs and have been engaged with state and community leaders on the topic. This is not to be confused with the agreement we previously had for a Brightline station that Brightline decided not to pursue.

Brightline previously proposed a Disney Springs station in 2019. The planned route changed and the Disney Springs station was canceled in 2022.

Universal Orlando Resort later announced plans for a SunRail station near Epic Universe and created a special tax district to fund the construction of the Sunshine Corridor, which connects the Miami-based Brightline and Central Florida SunRail.

On April 25, the Florida Department of Transportation presented cost and ridership estimates on the corridor. The presentation included a potential Disney Springs station, which would cost between $173 million and $247 million to construct. The estimated total cost for the Sunshine Corridor is $4.78 billion. Orange County Mayor and SunRail Board Member Jerry Demings said that the success of the plan would depend on federal, state, local, and private funding.
