Even though the Disney Parks are closed, we have learned that there was a least one construction project on Disney property is continuing.
Now, we have some additional news. While it is not a construction project by the Disney Company, we have reports that a construction project that could directly impact Disney property in the future is still fully active, and is even accelerating.
Sources report that the Virgin Trains route that is said to eventually link South Florida to Orlando is still active. There have been advanced discussions for having a Virgin Trains station on or nearby Disney property. This rail link would allow guests to visit Disney World and then take a cruise out of ports in Miami very easily.
Representatives of Virgin Trains have said that they have made changes to the construction process so that it can continue in a safe way. This is possible, in part, because the project stretches out over 168 miles of railway. Workers don’t need to be congested in small spaces.
Since other construction projects in Florida have slowed or closed, Virgin Trains has been able to bring on more work crews. They have a total of 750 construction works on the project, which is about 30% complete. It is scheduled to finish in December 2022.
Excited for a new Virgin Trains station at Disney World, connecting to South Florida?
