I always thought they had a couple "courtesy" wheelchairs for that reason, but they could also just be people taking rented ones out of the parks and dumping them at the bus stop. Don't know, I guess!

they are free courtesy wheelchairs (blue?) from bus to gate or handicap parking to gate.
The rental ones (gray?) are different and do not leave the parks.

Since we are talking about wheelchairs, if you rent them in the parks they should be able to dig up a wide one for you, if needed. I didn't think it would matter, but otherwise the flexible sides of the chair get pressed against the inside of the wheels, making sure the person pushing gets a ton of exercise.

Same price....I think it was only a few bucks? Less than ten, for sure.
Four or seven, I bet. You can even take your receipt to the next park and get one no extra charge if you park hop.

No, you must get your own transportation to Vero.

Soarin' at ALL Disney Parks worldwide is the same film except the ending which is location specific to that particular theme park.

Are disney resort guests starting to use uber and lyft sometimes, instead of the disney transportation? If so, is this affecting how Disney is doing transportation? Is Disney starting to use less buses for resorts?

Uber and Lyfft are used by guests all the time, mainly because theyíre cheaper than a taxi.

Some will use them to get to early reservations or the parks for RD, others because they donít like buses.

I donít think it affects the scheduled buses. It could possibly affect the numbers waiting, and therefore they may not have to call for extra buses as often. But somehow I think the effect will be pretty small to negligible.
