Default Pathway Updates from GF to MK???

Has anyone heard any updates on this pathway? Is there a known projected completion date? Inquiring minds want to know!

No known completion date but I did see pictures of the swing bridge sitting near the waterway it is supposed to span.

Ok thanks. I didnít know if Iíd missed it because if you donít read Disney news for a couple of days, you can miss stuff like this.

I was at the GF a couple weeks ago, and didn't see much sign of construction. Can't wait until it happens, but I fear it will just make VGF more popular than they are now (my almost 7 month waitlist never came through).

VGF was our first DVC purchase. We couldnít understand why it didnít cost more than it did, but we didnít want to look a gift horse in the mouth. We bought all of our VGF points (including 2 small contracts) for $130 or $135pp. Seeing the prices now makes us so happy that we purchased when we did. Itís our favorite property at WDW. I do think that pathway will make VGF more popular. It will also allow a lot more flexibility on how to get to/from MK which is pretty priceless IMO.

I know we do a lot of walking at MK, I'm thinking that distance will be a little far. I've never waited for more than 1 monorail.

Not far.....in Disney terms. Monorail will be quicker, in most cases, going to Magic Kingdom. Returning to VGF, walking will beat the monorail every time.

Please tell me your secrets! At closing time, weíve waited for 45-60 minutes frequently for a monorail or boat.

You are welcome!

Closing time will always be an issue.....walking will surely be faster. Except when the night time parade has to roll out of the canal.
