PHOTOS - Disney Springs Marketplace boat dock and walkway to Saratoga Springs opens

Aug 15, 2014 in "Disney Springs"

The new Disney Springs Marketplace boat dock and walkway to Saratoga Springs is now open to guests.

Access to the new bridge and dock is near the Marketplace bus stop, just opposite Days of Christmas. The walkway is dual purpose, with a bridge to Saratoga Springs Resort, and a dock for the ferry service.

The dock operates two routes.

  • Yellow Route to Port Orleans and the French Quarter, from 10:30am to 11:30pm every 20 minutes.
  • Red Route to Pleasure Island and West Side from 10:30am to 11:30pm every 20 minutes.

A Jungle Cruise skipper told me the new dock is made from hickory. You have to be careful when it's wet (like in the photos) because it's a slippery hickory dock. :happy:

Looks really nice. I like the color of the woodwork. Very well done.

Definitely harkens back to the LBV Marketplace days. Love it. Of note is that the parking garages do not "loom" over Disney Springs as some had hoped, um, I mean feared. Well done TDO and CAD. Well done! :happy:

Presumably the Marketplace/West Side/PI water taxi will also stop there. -Rob

i'm sure there will be several Largish signs, as well as maps.

It's not that far away from where the old dock was. Plus, the only guests who are going to use it are OKW and PO. (I think?) It'll be one of those "if-you-need-it-you-know-where-it-is" situations.

seems like an odd out of the way off the beaten place to put the marketplace boat dock, being all the way over there most people probably won't even see it/ realize it exists

Last time I checked they were building the entry path to the dock. Hopefully it will be done in the next few weeks as the boat is nice to have when you park at West side.

Looks like it wont open until the birds are done putting on their final touches!:D

Looks nice. It's interesting to see that they are employing a pull in style dock. I'm curious to see how it works out.
