A Disney representative confirmed today that the Brightline high-speed rail station set to open at Disney Springs has been cancelled.
The station, set to connect Walt Disney World to Orlando International Airport and Tampa by high-speed rail, was confirmed cancelled by the Orlando Business Journal.
Walt Disney World spokesperson Avery Mather stated “As many people who are involved in this project are aware, the new route configuration does not support a Disney Springs station and as a result, we don’t anticipate being part of this project.” Brightline representative were not available for comment.
Brightline is currently working on plans to connect Tampa and Orlando by high-speed rail, with a stop planned at the Orange County Convention Center, across from Universal Orlando Resort’s upcoming Epic Universe park. Running along the I-4 corridor, the train was set to connect to Disney Springs and allow access to Walt Disney World.
