Florida bullet train and Disney.

Tuesday, October 28, 2003 7:50 AM
The Florida High Speed Rail Authority gave tentative approval for the first leg of the bullet train to run from the Orlando Airport direct (and non-stop) to Disney property. Disney is donating 50 acres of land near the Osceola Pkwy and I-4 for the station.

There had been a great deal of controversy and dissent because Universal and the Orlando Convention Center wanted a stop over at the International Drive area. Disney vowed to not permit an on-property stop if it there was an indirect line from the airport.

In America, money talks once again.

www.sun-sentinel.com has the story.

I knew that Disney made an issue of that a long time ago... I didn't know that it was still unresolved.

if they want it to stop by universal and the convention center, they were going to put it aside of 417, which i am glad they didn't, because I don't want one right next to my house

Reminds me of that catchy song they played in 88/89 for the ride from Fronteirtown to Mickey's Birthdayland,

Were goin', goin' on the express

Were goin on the Mickey's Birthdayland Express

A little tweaking with the lyrics and it could become that high speed line's theme song ;)
