Virgin Trains plans to open its proposed station at Walt Disney World Resort shortly after its Orlando International Airport station debuts.
The Miami-based intercity rail company’s Orlando airport station is part of its $4 billion West Palm Beach-to-Orlando expansion that’s set to open in 2022.
The future Disney station, which does not yet have a location on the theme park giant’s property, would be part of Virgin Trains’ $1.7 billion rail expansion from Orlando to Tampa. That station would be subject to permitting, lease negotiations with state agencies for right-of-way access and a full agreement with Disney. There is no timeline for when work will begin on the Tampa route.
