Well, most areas throughout Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney Theme Parks, Disney Water Parks, Resort hotels and the Downtown Disney Area, are accessible by bus so you don't have to use your own car! This sounds great, right? Well, it can be a wonderful thing and it can be a pain. I have always used the bus system to get around Walt Disney World. I find it better then using my own gas, plus I have already paid for tickets, resort and plane which adds up the $$$! I want to make sure I have cash fro those awesome Disney items I want to take home with me.
- I like the bus system because their is normally one every few minutes that picks you up at the stop you are at and takes you to your new destination in WDW. I think I can only remember a few times when I had to wait more then 20 minutes and that was because we were headed to a place on Disney property that many guests were not so they only had two bus running that way. It took them 30 minutes to get to the place and then 30 minutes back. Most of the time, buses are right behind the other, like in the morning when everyone at the resort are out heading to a park for fun. There will be a bus at that stop every few minutes. The lines will be long getting on the bus, but normally you won't wait to long for the line moves fast.
- The dislike of the bus is how PACK it can get! Guest will have to stand when the seats get full. 50% of the bus are sitting while 50% are standing. I mean, I have almost had other guests sitting on top of me because it was so packed. I also feel bad when family with small kids get on and they stand up. I always give up my seat for I don't want little kids standing. Once I was way in the back, this man got on the bus with a little child sleeping on his shoulders and he had to use one arm to hold the "nugget" and one to hold the bar. No one got up and let him sit. The ride was 20 minutes and I just felt so bad. I would have given up mine, but he was way up front and it was loud, no one could hear me over the crowded bus. I wish they had a different system with those buses. It could be dangerous standing with a small one going through Disney property, not everyone is a safe driver on the roads like the cast members driving the bus.
