Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is about to get an extra touch of magic as the deluxe resort is officially getting a walkway that will allow guests to walk from the hotel directly to Magic Kingdom.

The permit for the new construction was filed only a week ago on July 5 and reveals the news of the new walkway under the Site/Facility section of the document, stating: “Grand Floridian to MK Walkway.” Besides this new permit listing, not much else is known about the walkway or if Disney will make an official announcement of its future construction.

Although, how exciting would it be to be able to walk from the Victorian resort to the most magical place on the planet? After all, the monorail can become packed at times!

According to Google Maps, the lavish resort sits a little under a mile from the theme park. And if guests were allowed to walk around the lake and up to the park’s main turnstiles, instead of having to take a boat or the Monorail, the travel time might end up being much less.

Frequent park visitors know that both the Monorail and the boats can experience long wait times at the beginning and end of the day, making the travel time from the resort to the park quite long. However, with this new walkway, guests could bypass all of this.

One walkway that is always nice to travel along is from the back of Epcot’s World Showcase to Disney’s Beach, Yacht Club Resorts and the Boardwalk Resort. For those not familiar with the walkway, it begins at Epcot’s International Gateway entrance and then goes all the way to the back entrance of these Disney Resorts. And if you’re up for a little bit longer walk, you can also continue along the pathway and reach Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
