    With the discussion of bypass Universal and straight to Disney or not. I think the most likely option is the pink route, where the track goes past Universal/I drive and then onto Disney as this greatly increases the amount of travel on the rail route.

    If Disney has issues about a train that goes from the airport that stops at Universal first, they can fund there own "Magical express" and have a direct train.
    But even with Disney seeing other attractions as a competitor they cant not admit that a easy train between the two parks would spur attendance growth in both parks due to "day trips" between the two parks.

    Knowing Disney in the future you will arrive at Orlando inter modal and see two trains
    A high speed "bullet train" looking train going to Universal, Disney and Tampa
    Next to it a DMU with a colour scheme covered in Disney characters or themed, think of the MTR at Hong Kong DL heading just to Disney and there only

    Disney's whole focus for years has been get the guests to the parks and keep them away from any other attractions. That's the point of Magical Express (don't rent a car and you're less likely to leave Disney property), Disney Springs, and Magic Bands. Get them to Disney property where they offer everything and ignore those billboards along the expressways for Universal, SeaWorld, Legoland, etc. Disney has no interest in getting people to and from the Convention Center, it cuts into their convention business. I'm guessing the new enthusiasm for the Virgin/Brightline trains is they've worked out the deal already to bypass the rest of Orlando's attractions. Of course the local attractions can still use the OIA station as a hub to pickup arrivals by air and by train, but having another station in the Convention Center area would be more convenient.
