DORAL, FL – Disney Springs will have a Brightline station to connect South Florida with Disney Parks. Visitors will be able to commute from Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach stations.
According to Local 10 News, there will also be a stop at Orlando International Airport, which is expected to be completed in 2022, and stops from Orlando to Tampa in the future. In addition, the company is planning to add stations in Boca Raton, Aventura and at Port Miami.
“Brightline will offer a car-free connection to the millions of visitors from around the state and the world who plan to make Walt Disney World Resort part of their vacation plans,” Brightline’s president Patrick Goddard said in a statement, as reported by Local 10.
“Our mission has always been to connect our guests to the people and places that matter, and Walt Disney World Resort is a tremendous example of this,” added Goddard.
The announcement was made on Monday, Nov. 23, after Brightline and Disney reached an agreement for the higher-speed passenger train to build the station at Disney Springs, the shopping and entertainment complex at the Central Florida resort.
Although the project is pending local government approval and there isn’t still a timeline for the station to be build, the president of Walt Disney World Resort, Jeff Vahle, stated this new station could support the local economy and “offer a bold, forward-looking transportation solution for our community and guests.”
