PHOTO - Disney testing bus wait time system for My Disney Experience app

Nov 11, 2014 in "MyMagic+"

Disney is currently testing a new feature of My Disney Experience that should make waiting for busses at the Walt Disney World Resort a lot less frustrating.

Currently in very early stages of in-house testing and not available for guests, the app gives an indication of when the next bus will be arriving at the current location. You can see in this screen shot below the app in action at Port Orleans Resort (Thanks LucyBC for the pic).

No word yet on when or if the feature may be released for guest use.

Disney has been experimenting with wait times for transportation over the past few years, most recently with screens installed at a few of the bus stops. Providing the data to the app would appear to be a much more realistic solution, saving the need to install hundreds of screens around property at each stop.
