If you’ve visited Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World any time in the last couple of years, you know what a royal pain in the tuchus traffic can be in that area. Now you can rejoice, because Downtown Disney is dead and Disney Springs is here, with a brand new way to arrive. The new Disney Springs I-4 exit ramp is now open, providing a much more stress-free way to drive into the shopping district’s recently completed parking garage.
Guests exiting I-4 westbound at exit 67 will now see a freshly paved off-ramp with new signage directing them to the Disney Springs parking garage. The new right-hand exit, which is located just before the iconic Walt Disney World welcome arch, takes drivers up and over the construction confusion of Buena Vista Drive and leads directly into the Disney Springs Orange garage’s upper levels. Depending on the time of day, the new traffic pattern can easily shave half and hour or more off your commute, leaving more time to enjoy the new Disney Springs offerings like Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and Morimoto Asia.
Unfortunately, the job is only half done, as the return ramp exiting the garage is still a work in progress. Until it is complete, returning to I-4 from Disney Springs still requires navigating a maze of safety barricades and orange barrels.
Because seeing is believing, we’ve recorded the following exclusive POV video of the new Disney Springs I-4 exit ramp. Check it out to see what is in store for you on your next visit, and happy motoring!
