Notice of Commencement filed for Phase II of the World Drive redevelopment at the Transportation and Ticket Center

Sep 09, 2020 in "Magic Kingdom"

Disney has filed a Notice of Commencement for Phase II of the World Drive North redevelopment near to the Transportation and Ticket Center at Walt Disney World.

The permit suggests that work will begin soon, and has an expiration date of December 22 2022. (Thanks to danlb_2000 for spotting the permit)

According to the filings:

"The project is the Phase 2 extension and realignment of World Drive and the associated ramps and frontage roads. Phase 2 of the World Drive extension will begin where Phase 1 ends near Floridian Way and east of the existing car care center. The end of Phase 2 ties in to Floridian Way approximately 800 feet south of Seven Seas Drive. The total project length is approximately 1.3 miles."

Disney has been actively working on the roadways around the TTC for a number of years as an effort to improve traffic flow in the area. The Phase 1 project included flyovers and a bypass of the parking Plaza.

So, it looks like Reedy Creek Improvement District is building Phase II (partially) on an easement granted by Disney. I'm curious if either Phase I or the existing road being replaced were built under the same type of agreement? Interesting also that the easement includes a significant portion of the parking lot.

NIce, I wish they all were as complete as that. I like NoC's but this has meat!

What color were they? Each color means something different:

driving down Floridian Way today there were quite a lot of little flags in the ground between seven seas dr and the car care center so it looks like they’re working on but not sure how far that’ll go. Never thought this road needed it as much as world drive did.

The new exit layout and eventual widening of Floridian way should still happen. Last I knew the New MK toll plaza was not happening

I imagine the new exit road layout from MK parking. The original endgame was for a new MK toll plaza and the duelling of Floridian Way from Car Care up to the new north Entrance. If this still happens I don’t know.

They've always been a bright orange. It just seems more orange because all the other lights were replaced to not be as orange.
