SSR walkway to DTD

Has there been a new walkway built from SSR to DTD? If so does anyone have pictures?

Yes, but I have no pics. We "discovered" it when we took the water craft from the West Side of DTD to the Market Place side. They did a nice job!

Cool. It's been a few years since I've been at ssr and we've always enjoyed waking to dtd, We often found it to be a long walk back for the little kids.

They did a beautiful job with this walkway.

It is built "on" the water.

About halfway it has a "branch" off of it leading to the Port Orleans and DTD Boat Dock.

Is this supposed to be a 'new' walkway?? I have been walking on that for several years! Have they redone it or something??

It's a completely new structure and was opened in mid-August 2014. It's a bridge, unlike the former walkway that was close to the street. It's in the area of Wolfgang Puck Express and the bus loop. Go to my post (above) to link to the new DTD map and pictures.

The POR/POFQ boat dock is also re-located to this new bridge. The former Marketplace dock was removed and a new pedestrian walkway across the "bay" is being built from where Captain Jack's was (on one side) to Fulton's (on the other side). That's scheduled to open in early 2015.
