Rumor Higher Speed Rail from MCO to Disney World

Don't they tow left cars at the end of the night?

This will also put a strain on the infrastructure in the area. They need to ensure that the entrance and exit for the station is away from DS otherwise the improvements they made will be for nothing.

Nope. JT, who is our resident expert on all things WDW-related, has said “Ramps and such” will be able to handle and spread out the traffic. If he says Springs can handle the additional traffic load of a transpiration hub, there’s no reason at all to doubt him.

Well it already is a transportation hub to some degree.

Yes, they would tow cars in that situation. I guess if you were flying out and back the same day it would work.

If they do a hub across the street I'm sure they would have dedicated lanes. Imagine if resort guests could get more efficient connections from the parks to the Springs and back. I'm sure that would be popular.

Renderings have depicted busses but not sure that would be the final choice if the station gets built.

Skyliner would be cool but likely Disney busses.
So you’d get off the train, get on a bus to the transportation hub and then get another bus to the resort? What’s the point of that exactly? Why not have the buses go direct to the resorts?

I think I’ll just get an Uber.

They don’t run buses from DS to the parks. Deliberately. And there are buses to and from all resorts to DS.

Or, if one were to fly out of MCO and back on the same day, you could choose to park in a ramp at the airport and be a 5 minute walk away instead of 30 minutes away plus any transportation/traffic delays. What you propose makes absolutely zero sense. Hell, I’m still trying to figure out what exactly you mean by “across the street”. That area isn’t set up for any sort of major interchange.

I know. Making the point they could get more people out of their cars if they offered such a service for resort guests.

You mean only allowing resort guests onto the buses? That’ll go down well whilst the bus driver tries to refuse entry to a family who get on anyway and refuse to leave.

They have already limited resort parking to non-guests. Same was true with Minnie Vans. Consider it a trend that may have further iterations. Just fun speculation.

There was once consideration of making the area around the Epcot monorail station a central transportation hub. And it sort of is. So something like that plan but closer to I-4 and the proposed hsr station.

PS - an offramp was already built directly off of I-4 to support Disney Springs/TDO.

Yes, I know, I’ve been on it. An off ramp is not an interchange for a transportation hub.
