It gets a lot easier to visit Disney World.

On Monday, Railroad Company Brightline announced that it had reached an agreement with Walt Disney World Resort to build a train station in Disney Springs.

The outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida is technically not in one of Disney’s four theme parks or two water parks, but it does have access to the resort’s transportation system.
