Disney's Grand Floridian Resort reopened today following the departure of the NBA players.

The new walkway that links the resort to the Magic Kingdom is still not open to guests, but it looks likely to be available very soon.

Just a couple of workers remain on the site completing final touches.

The main swing bridge has a closed gate across the bridge from both sides.

Despite all the budget cuts in recent years, one thing that never seems to get a budget cut is landscaping. Disney always seems to go above and beyond with their work and it's very appreciated!

Did they add more benches along the pathway? It would be nice to sit and contemplate along the way.

Definitely helps anchor the path. They also added some shrubs along the back of the GF convention Center to hide some parking lot. Just need to try to hide that green cement storage shed under the monorail beam.

Add a second level to both locations and then there shouldn’t be any issues with seeing fireworks! Plus, you could charge extra $ for fireworks viewing!!!

I saw 2 new areas with several palm trees in early August that looked nice!

Or a good breakfast/brunch place too.

I always thought the TTC would make a great place for a restaurant/ bar. Build it above the ferry dock with a view of the Magic Kingdom and the fireworks
