Work continues at a swift pace as Downtown Disney is transforming into Disney Springs. When it’s complete the whole area…
The 2nd Pedestrian Bridge walkway connecting the Orange Garage parking structure with the Westside of Downtown Disney is now open.…
I didn’t get the chance to do a walking-tour of Downtown Disney this week, but I was able to drive by and check things out. Turns out there is a ton of construction going on across Lake Buena Vista Blvd that runs along the perimeter. It starts up at the Downtown Disney Hotels and runs all the way past Typhoon Lagoon.
In addition to a new car bridge that will ease traffic into the largest of the two parking structures, Disney is building three sets of pedestrian bridges adding that extra bit of safety for guests and cast members who end up parking on the other side of the street.
A new pedestrian bridge crosses Lake Buena Vista, it’s not open yet but will put you in Downtown Disney right by Planet Hollywood Observatory and AMC Fork & Dine Theater.
Here’s the bridge for cars to enter and exit the first parking lot without needing a light. Coming west from EPCOT, you’ll exit on the right via a ramp then turn left to cross the bridge into the parking lot.
And you’ll also be able to exit the lot and return to Lake Buena Vista traveling west toward the Downtown Disney Hotels.
