Default Bus time Schedule

Wouldn't it be nice if the Monitors at the bus stops were on the in room TVs as well. We just returned from the world and found the times to be right on when the busses arrived. If you knew the bus you were waiting for was going to be arriving at 8am you wouldn't have to rush leaving your room only to find the bus just left and your waiting another 20+ minutes.

Better yet . . . put it on the MDE App and have it generate an "ETA" synced with your plans.

That info would be good, both coming and going, around the resort.

If they want me to stay in the park and shop or have desert or beverage, rather than scurry out and stand in line at the bus stop - then tell me when the next return bus is coming.

Uber and Waze have this down so well in the uncontrolled real world; it would be nice to see WDW transport catch-up.

spot on! BUT... we are talking about Disney IT here Silly to think that a 150 billion dollar company (that actually makes money unlike Uber) could put this on their app

One of the many surveys I took this summer after our trips, had that type of thing listed - on the MDE app though IIRC. Would be nice

But if you didn’t want to wait, you could always hire a Minnie Van to take you where you want to go. There’s a method to Disney’s madness. 😁

Yes, last trip we were dreaming that it would have been nice to show the buses on MDE.
