This long-awaited project has inched along throughout the year. It now provides an alternative method of transportation for guests at both The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows.
We’ve heard multiple reports from many DVC Fan members who have enjoyed the path over the past two days.
The walking path area is fully lit, allowing it to be utilized both day and night. After exiting the path, guests will enter the security and temperature screening that is now part of the new Magic Kingdom Boat Dock area.
We ran a few quick numbers on Google Maps and estimate the paths length to be the following:
– Grand Floridian Villas to Magic Kingdom: Approximately 0.75 miles
– Polynesian Villas to Magic Kingdom: Approximately 1.30 miles
This new transportation method is a huge added value to guests staying at the Grand Floridian or Polynesian. Walkability has always been a big factor for many Disney Vacation Club owners.
