Walt Disney World and Brightline are trying to decide exactly where to put their long-awaited Disney Springs train station, according to WFTV.

  • The Disney Springs station has been in the works for some time now and was made official last November.
  • Now, the Miami-based intercity rail company and Disney are deliberating on where exactly this new station should be located.
  • Early plans have the station incorporated with Disney Springs’ Orange Garage, but those plans could easily be changed.
  • WFTV also reports that the deal to build a station at Walt Disney World has not yet been finalized and that Brightline representatives were not available for comment.
  • Disney simply said they have “nothing more to share” at this time.

More on Brightline:

  • Brightline recently gave some details on the costs associated with the new rail that will soon be taking passengers from Orlando International Airport to the Walt Disney World Resort.
  • They have stated that a route on 417 through Hunters Creek will cost $1.03 billion compared to a route along State Road 528 to International Drive costing $2.1 billion.
  • In terms of preference, the company would much prefer going through 417 than International Drive due to not having to deal with as many public and private lands that span the route that would go to International Drive, although many want it to happen as it would allow for there to be a link to the Orange County Convention Center and its hotels.
  • According to Michael Cegelis, Brightline’s executive vice president of infrastructure development, service from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World is expected to begin within five years.
  • The Brightline and Disney deal was made official last November with a route that not only will connect Guests to Disney Springs, but cities such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach.
