Disney is reportedly in talks with Brightline (soon to be Virgin Trains) to develop a train station near Walt Disney World in Kissimmee, Florida.

According to Travel Pulse, the station would be located on a proposed rail line connecting Tampa and Orlando International Airport. Brightline is currently constructing a $4 billion expansion connecting West Palm Beach with Orlando International Airport. That project will link Orlando with Miami and is expected to be completed by 2022.
“As the top vacation destination and largest single-site employer in the United States, Walt Disney World Resort is an obvious choice for a rail station between Orlando International Airport and Tampa,” Travel Pulse report Disney officials as saying in a statement. “While we have not yet made any definitive commitment, we have mutually agreed to more formally explore developing a train station on our property.”
