Disney files plans to demolish the Walt Disney World Speedway and build expansion to the Magic Kingdom parking lot

Jun 16, 2015 in "Magic Kingdom"

Disney has filed plans to begin work on demolishing the Walt Disney World Speedway and to start work on expanding the Magic Kingdom parking lot at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

Disney had announced back in February of 2015 that both the Richard Petty Driving Experience and the Exotic Driving Experience would be closing later in 2015 to make way for transportation improvements.

With the addition of New Fantasyland, and the parks increased guest count, parking at the TTC has become a problem, sometimes reaching capacity before the park itself reaches capacity. The expansion of the parking lot should help in regard to that issue.

Roadway improvements in the area are also expected, with Disney already underway with a project to add traffic lights to a frequently congested area near the parking plaza.
