PHOTOS - New permit filings suggest the possibility of new roadways coming to Walt Disney World

Jun 30, 2015 in "Disney's Hollywood Studios"

A couple of new permits have been filed with the South Florida water Management District that suggest Disney is exploring the possibility of adding new roadways to several key areas of Walt Disney World.

The plans are not yet for actual roads, but are permits to allow the exploration of ground conditions for potential future road building. Thanks to @danlb_2000 on the forums for spotting this one.

The first is a new road that would link Disney's Hollywood Studios to Victory Way, the road that serves the massive Art of Animation and Pop Century resorts.

In some of the possible redesigns of the Studios park, the roadways have been reconfigured with a main entrance off World Drive, a bus only entrance along Buena Vista Drive across from the Boardwalk, and a new exit road leading to Victory Way.

The second plan is for a possible roadway running from the northern side of property near Reams Road to Floridan Way, near to the Grand Floridian Resort.

This appears likely to relate to the project to bring a new access from the north of property, a route commonly used by Cast Members and guests who live on the rapidly expanding northern side of Walt Disney World. You can read more about this project here.
