Bill, why do you believe there will be some sort of transportation? Or, even a walk way?
Honestly, there doesn't seem to be a need for an actual transportation "ride" because the lands are so close together between the two parks. Unlike Universal, where the lands are really far apart an warrant transportation.
If this connecting of the parks thing is true, I could see something along the lines of an elevated walkway connecting Arendelle to Beauty and the Beast area. I just don't see any practical need for a "ride" unless they are connecting different areas that we aren't thinking about.
I do hope they connect the parks, but if they do, I could also see them changing how park hoppers work. Changing to how the ticket works at all the other Disney Parks; same day, no restrictions.
Found a couple of new (to me) photos on the net. One shows more of Maurice's Cottage, where Fast Pass machines for the Beauty/Beast attraction, should be located. The other is of a new Toontown sign that was just revealed, taking the place of one mounted on a wall. This has apparently provided photo ops, too. Yay Mickey!
Looks nice, that sign does. Thank you to Spencer Lloyd, who took these two photos.
Here's a couple of the many photos taken. Thanks tdrexplorer!
Disney Trivia: Tokyo Disneyland can now claim the honor of having TWO castles in it's park! While Beast's Castle is definitely much smaller than the central Cinderella Castle, it was decided to build this, in forced perspective that Disney Imagineering does best, as the entry facade into the new Beauty/Beast attraction.
Cool looking 3D painted mountains behind the entry and hiding the show building for the new live performance theatre to open with everything else in TDL, in April.

I agree with Joey. Just because the parks are expanding and adding capacity, it doesn't mean that the transportation network has to expand... If we were talking a third park, that might be a different story, but transportation systems are designed with anticipated needs that go well beyond 5-10 years worth of expected growth... If the parks were in dire need of additional transportation options, there should be no doubt that the Oriental Land Company would have already addressed the issue.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
Found a couple of recent photos, posted by @kerokero_2525...thank you! First, an overhead shot of the Resort. Second, a new pic of Beast's Castle in New Fantasyland, taken from a bit farther back, where you will head towards the attraction's show building.
