I think this is unlikely as it will require an additional bus from DS to get to hotels and, unless they substantially revamp the buses, this will not be a viable mass option. Sure, a few could do it. But if this were a main transportation mechanism to replace ME, it would require a lot of work.

Cheers.

This isn't replacing DME. I'll say it again - this is a stopoff at DS for people who are taking the train to/from somewhere else.

DS cannot become a hub for everyone going to WDW from MCO. You'd effectively have to rebuild the DME terminal at MCO, at DS, which wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to do. And that's before we get into the bottleneck of train frequency - this thing isn't going to run every 10 minutes (if it ever exists at all - I'm a skeptic on any rail project in the US).
