Walt Disney World Throws Its Support For Florida High Speed Rail

The push for a high-speed rail line for Central Florida got a boost today when Walt Disney World throws its support behind it.

Disney says it will support a stop at the Orange County Convention Center, as well as provide up to 50 acres of free land for a station. For years, Disney wanted any train that might be built to take a straight shot from Orlando International Airport to its parks, with no other stations.

I'm glad they've changed their stance from before. The whole area will benefit if this comes through. Disney could easily offer the same type of service as the Magical Express for riders of the train to get them to the theme parks. So it's a win-win situation!
