with the new road will Disney remove the old road so that they can add more land to the Magic Kingdom?

Yes
Gonna be challenging around shift change near the Poly. We stay at SoG and its already pretty bad without adding in more traffic. Two pedestrian walkways into the mix GF and SoG.

Yay!!! It’s been a long time coming. However, from the survey work I saw a couple months ago more changes are coming headed south to the split.

Reams Road is going to be four lanes from CR 535 to Summerlake Park Blvd in a few years. Construction could be starting this year according to the latest proposals I’ve read with completion in 2023. It’s all part of the original Horizon West master plan. Horizon West has over 25,000 residents already.

Darn...I like the north entrance being "hidden" and a thing only locals know about. I can understand though since they've been building a ton of housing right outside it. ---really wish that wouldn't have happened. So much for having a "buffer" - with all the housing being built there's barely any land between that and bay lake.
There doesn't seem to be any obstacles or reasons why you can't still come through the 'old' north entrance.......I just wish that there was a 'Welcome to Disney World' sign of some sort. :cool: It still seems like a great way for guests from the Contemporary to travel up to Publix and other shopping on that side of the World.

As someone on Reams Road, I agree! Now I wonder if Google, etc will adjust the GPS coding to allow for pass-thru. Ever try to take an UBER from TTC to Reams Road? 35-40 mins by GPS because I think Disney had the backlot blacklisted from access. Interesting to see what happens.
Waze (owned by Google) is very good at updating new roads on the map very quickly, especially those in high-traffic areas. Though I'll admit it all depends on the area's map editors and how on-the-ball they are.

Here in Massachusetts there was a redesign of an interchange between two major highways. The new ramp from one to the other opened and it was reflected on the map the very next day. (The old ramp now only leads to a local road and they had to install signs along there to get people who are following out-of-date GPS maps looped around and back on the road they were trying to go to)

Makes a lot of sense and will look forward to it. Im assuming they will continue all the way past summer lake to Ficquette where they already have two lanes for 2 cars in each direction.

I can’t speak for the current delay but the major hold up on opening this road for the last few months has been the county and not Disney/RCID.
