Walkthrough of completed Grand Floridan Resort walkway to Magic Kingdom

The much anticipated walkway from the Grand Floridian Resort to the Magic Kingdom opened this morning.

The new walkway begins near to the Grand Floridian convention buildings, accessible from alongside the quick service restaurant and marina area.

The walk takes about 10 minutes at a brisk pace, but of course your mileage may vary. For most, it will be a 15 minute walk.

During the walk, you pass over two new bridges, including the swing bridge that allows access to the Electric Water Pageant canal.

Also open today is the new boat dock, serving both the Grand Floridian and Polynesian Resort.

On arrival, temperature screening and security screening is carried out just beyond the new boat dock area, which use the new no-stop EVOLV security scanners.

Will the new walkway, and the new Magic Kingdom entrance plaza, appear on the MDE/website maps any time soon?

I walked it around 8 pm. A Security guard at the magic kingdom boat dock where the GF path starts asked us where we were going and a construction security person at Poly asked us what we were doing as we were coming in from the GF and told us that you are only allowed through if you're staying there.

Calm down now. It took us nearly 25 years to get this. Expect a WL connection by 2050 at this rate.

Finish the loop, add an extension to Wilderness Lodge.

Cool! Don’t suppose you recorded it? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ At what kind of time was that? And where were you asked about your destination?

So I went last night and walked from Contemporary all the way around to the TTC. It was a bit shady at times in the night walking through the Poly construction and a weird path around the front of TTC security and we were asked twice where we were going. Took 1 hour 3 minutes with no stops and leisurely walking speed.

Perfect location for an evening stroll, hope we get footage of that area around the evening and nighttime eventually.

I've walked it. At an average pace of two miles an hour it took 16 minutes. From building 5 / Gasparilla at the Grand Floridian to the entrance of the new "dock 2" at the Magic Kingdom it is .67 of a mile.

I think I read that from the GF it is .75 mile, and from the Poly it is 1.25 or .33? It would still be nice to have a couple more rests spots as not everyone is able to manage that amount of walking after the miles they walk at the parks. But, I guess it doesn't matter, because we don't stay at either resort. It just looked like a long, long way on the video:)
