Grand Floridian Walkway to Magic Kingdom Now Open

Share This!

Sometimes it is the little things in life that can bring joy. For more years than I can count, I’ve been excited about the idea of the finishing of the walkway from Disney’s Grand Floridian Hotel to Magic Kingdom. On nights when the parks are packed, having the option to walk to the Grand Floridian and then on to the Polynesian and to the Transportation and Ticket Center sounds like a much better plan than waiting in huge crowds for a monorail or ferry boat. Finally, that day has become a reality.

Although this path would be far less desirable during summer months, due to a lack of shade, there is good lighting for nighttime walking. And for fans of the currently on hiatus Electric Water Pageant, there is a pivoting bridge to allow the boats for this mainstay to still head into Seven Seas Lagoon.

At a leisurely stroll, the walk from Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom takes about 10-15 minutes.

  • Can guests staying at other resorts take a Lyft to the the point where the trail leaves Grand Floridian and walk to MK? Staying at Shades of Green and that would be QUITE a hike.

  • Thanks. I consider that to be THE authoritative answer!

  • How long would it take to walk from the TTC to the MK along this new path?

    • It took me around 35 minutes the last time I did it.

  • Even better will be a sunrise jog around Seven Seas Lagoon from the Poly to the Contemporary and back.

    Beats the view on the ol’ treadmill!

  • We are a Poly Family, and I will use these every night. What a great amenity.

  • Would definitely use if it’s not at the end of a marathon day or during summertime heat.
