New Shortcut Overpass to Magic Kingdom Resorts Now Open

overpass magic kingdom resort now openLet’s be honest, the roads throughout Walt Disney World property are in a constant state of construction and will continue that way for a while.  However a new shortcut overpass leading to the Magic Kingdom resorts is now open and will offer guests a way to save time from being stuck in traffic.

This northbound overpass road off World Drive will allow guests to circumvent the Magic Kingdom plaza entrance who aren’t actually going to the Magic Kingdom park, and who instead are just trying to get to their resort.  If trying to get to Disney’s Contemporary, Polynesian or Grand Floridian resorts, you can take this new overpass which spilts off from the left of World Drive.  It’s also good for people trying to get to Disney University and Center Drive.

If you are going to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, then exit onto Vista Boulevard instead.  And if you are going to the Magic Kingdom, use the Magic Kingdom auto plaza as normal.

A new southbound overpass is also being worked on at the moment and is expected to open soon.  This whole area will be much easier to travel by car and bus and should decreased the travel time by a good amount.  This is just one of the many road projects currently being worked on in preparation of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary when the resort will need all the traffic help it can get.  This is a good start.
