New Floridian Place northern roadway to open next week behind the Magic Kingdom

Jul 03, 2019 in "Magic Kingdom"

Disney has been busy over the last few years making a number of changes to the area around the northern edge of property behind the Magic Kingdom, and the latest addition - the Floridian Place extension, will now open for traffic on July 10 2019.

The new Floridian Place extension will link Reams Road and Floridian Way - putting drivers just behind the Grand Floridan Resort without passing through backstage areas.

The new four-lane road should greatly enhance traffic flow for motorists coming from the north of the Magic Kingdom heading into the Walt Disney World Resort area. Previous to this road, drivers have to pass through the North service area of the Magic Kingdom on slow roads that frequently become congested. It will also mean that road closures during firework shows will no longer prevent any traffic reaching Reams Road from Floridian Way.

Thousands of houses have already been built north of the Magic Kingdom, with many more to come, and this new road provides a much more robust route.
