WDWMagic.com user danlb_2000 is reporting that Disney filed a permit with the South Florida Water Management District that would result in changes to World Drive. This is expected to affect guests in the following ways:
- Busses will no longer need to drive by the Ticket and Transportation Center when leaving the Magic Kingdom.
- Guests at the Magic Kingdom Resorts (Contemporary, Polynesian Villages, Grand Floridian and Wilderness Lodge) will no longer need to travel through the Magic Kingdom parking gates.
- Guests driving to the Magic Kingdom will enter the parking lot closer to the former Speedway area.
We will be tracking the progress of this here.
