Construction has begun on a walkway and bridge that will connect the Grand Floridian and the Magic Kingdom for foot traffic. Though the Grand Floridian is more posh, and more expensive, than its neighbor, the Contemporary, it has long lacked one key amenity the Contemporary had — the ability to walk to the Magic Kingdom.
Sure the monorail is great, but sometimes it’s crowded or the lines are long. And if you’re leaving the Magic Kingdom to go back to the hotel, it can take a while to circle through the entire monorail resort loop.
The addition of a Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom walkway could easy chop ten minutes off every return trip, particularly for guests staying in the buildings closer to the park.
Are you looking forward to this new addition?
