On September 24th, 2006, the STOLport next to the Magic Kingdom parking lot is scheduled to close and be turned over to the Imagineering.
What does this mean? We’re not really sure. The STOLport (an abbreviation for “Short Take Off and Landing”) is a private airport for Walt Disney World that has been out of service for years. It is used by Disney for event staging and parking, as well as a holding area for materials and supplies for projects like the refurbishment of the Contemporary and Wilderness Lodge resorts.
Current projects are being asked to remove their vehicles, supplies, and staff from the area leading up to the September 24th turn over date. The closure is one week prior to Disney’s annual October press events, so we are assuming more news will be available at those events or leaked out just prior.
