Grand Floridian to MK Walkway

When I called to make my reservation for my upcoming October trip I originally booked the GF. The cast member on the line said that I'll be able to walk from the GF to the MK. I took it as her not knowing what she was talking about, but now .... :cautious:

Interesting since that's the connection to drainage canal system. If they fill it in that would mean adding a connection somewhere else .

Dewatering doesn't necessarily mean filling in the canal.
No...it can also mean a temporary drain/diversion for many purposes. Water management
Finally! This is gonna be great for when crowds are abysmal and the monorail ain't cutting it!
Doesn’t mean good things for the longterm viability of the monorails though
This is a big deal. I'd even walk to the Poly if I could.
Running path...I’m happy 😎

A NYC cab driver just told me you will also be able to drive to the Magic Kingdom with a golf cart using this path. Of course, you will have to rent said cart using the MDE app, and reserving 90 days in advance. Carts do not have A/C, and you will have to pay to park it at the Ticket and Transportation center, and take a monorail or boat over to the Magic Kingdom.

Just from eyeballing the map, I'd guess a walk from the MK to Poly would be close to 1.5 miles. Can't see myself wanting that personally, considering how pleasant of a ferry ride it is.

Also, does anyone think it's possible that this permit is referencing work done to the "pathway to nowhere" that is currently there between the monorail station extending in the direction of GF? I know they're doing lots of work over there. Might it be possible they're just making improvements to this area for other reasons, like the resort ferry launch?

And to me, 1.5 miles is child's play! ;)
