Disney yesterday announced a huge update to the My Disney Experience App, and one that is certainly a huge welcome for all guests staying on property at the resort.
Once you have an active hotel booking (essentially as soon as you have checked in at your hotel) you will see a new icon appear that says ‘See Bus Times’ that gives up-to-the-minute updates on when the next bus is arriving at your resort. The app breaks it down by destination so you can see exactly when you need to be at the stop by in order to get to your favourite park (or Disney Springs).
Here’s the new feature in action:
This effectively means that guests will spend less time waiting around at resort bus stops and more time relaxing in the room or around the pool. Disney have answered a huge guest complaint with this new feature.
Better yet, for the bigger resorts like Old Key West and Saratoga Springs with multiple bus stops, the app breaks it down by stop!
Although this feature may seem like a small addition, it is going to result in a much more enjoyable vacation for many and one that I will certainly be using at Old Key West in October!
