    Outrageously overpriced apartments right next to the Cast Member parking lot for the Magic Kingdom.

    shouldnt look too bad once complete, and should be way more functional than it currently is

    the current design never really worked well for the magic kingdom area resorts and definitely wasnt designed for there to be traffic entering property from the north

    that road use to be blocked by security making entrance from the north unavailable, but ever since its been an open road it hasnt worked well

    Have spent more than 20 visits at the CR, Polynesian and GF. Always rent a car and have never had problems with traffic. Not sure about traffic from other directions. It's only my opinion,but once you start putting overpasses up, functionality or not, it will look more like a regular business or freeway intersection than the most famous resort on the planet. Progress marches on as always though.

    agreed it would be nice if they'd theme the new roadways

    could make it look like the cars are driving through a castle wall or something

    it could be awesome, but i doubt they'll spend the money to make it awesome

    Photo update as of Friday, August 11. For some time now, these concrete partitions for earth fill have been put in place around the future World Drive overpass. This photo taken just past the Magic Kingdom parking kiosk en route to the parking lots.
