Default Magical Express routes

If I book I deluxe resort I am booking a higher level of service than a value resort. So why is it when I board the ME there are 4 stops. Art of Animation, Pop century, Caribbean Beach, & Boardwalk. Guess which resort is the last stop? The deluxe. Shouldn't it be the first?

The route is, it seems, based on route efficiency, not perception of value of the various resorts.

Cheers.

I thought the proper salutation was "have a magical day?"

It wouldn't surprise me to learn that all routes are dependent on guest load when you arrived at MCO. Such as: If a bus full of All Star guests all arrives at the same time, then the bus will only go to that resort.

I realize it is frustrating but that is one of the reasons I tend to rent cars for WDW trips. Based on our WDW habits it tends to give us back as much as an hour of vacation time per day, which is well worth it. Of course we are only a party of 3, so the cheapest rental car is more than enough for us.

As of today --- you are getting a "free" ride. Take whatever you can get, and be thankful you get to your resort -- eventually.

At some point, Disney may offer "First Class" transportation -- but expect to pay for the privilege.

They already offer this. It's called Uber/Lyft.

Cheers.

Not that I know of. But we, as the public, are.
