New Ferryboat Ramp With Stairs Added at Magic Kingdom Dock
It looks like the ferryboat ramp at Magic Kingdom have undergone some changes.
This seems to be yet another project in a long list of small updates Disney World is making in the lead-in to its 50th Anniversary.
The wooden steps extending upward are a new addition.
Though Disney has yet to officially announce this change, we suspect that this is being done to streamline the ferry boat boarding process.
The stairs would mean that guests would be able to board and disembark directly from the second level of the boat.
This would be in addition to the dock that allows boarding from the lower deck.
This should hopefully cut down on the time it takes to load and unload the ship meaning that the ferries can make more trips to and from the resorts and the ticket and transportation center.
This sounds fantastic in theory but it would appear that there are still some kinks that need to be worked out.
Our MickeyBlogger popped over to the docks this morning and was told that they’re having a little bit of a problem with the new system today.
I’m all for anything that is going to get me on and off the boats at a quicker pace.
However, I do worry about the seemingly wooden stairs and how slippery they may be during those famous Florida thunderstorms.
