Bus arrival times for Walt Disney World now available on My Disney Experience app

In a new update to the My Disney Experience app, guests can now view up-to-the-minute estimates for when the next buses will depart from their Disney Resort hotel and when they will complete their journey to their destination.

Bus information updates in real time to provide the most current estimates for buses heading to all four theme parks, two water parks and the Disney Springs area. Guests can access the feature throughout their stay by tapping “See Bus Times” when viewing an active Disney Resort hotel reservation associated with their account.

Here is how it works.

Disney has long been testing the ability to give bus arrival times to guests. Even as far back as 2014, a pilot of the app was trialed around the resort. A few years earlier, Disney began to equip bus stops with display screens offering bus information.

The updates are not a sign of inaccuracy, on the contrary it's a result of more up to date information. Example- car accident, traffic jam etc etc. The busses are tracked by GPS that info is fed into the system.

Especially first thing in the morning, the arrival times posted on the resort monitors have not been helpful because those arrival times keep changing. After numerous "updates" it is difficult to believe in their accuracy. I hope that this new MDE feature will be more dependable.

Broken, broken, hairdryer, broken :). Dr Who fans will get this....

A whole new dispatch system will be unveiled in about a year from now. What your seeing is some of the beginning steps and trials. Eventually the plan is busses every ten minutes.

That answers my question. I'm off site at home and can't see it.

Currently sitting in my room at the Boardwalk. Wanted to check bus schedule and cliv Caked on the app. My screen is telling me that they are unable to retrieve schedule at this time. Something went wrong. Please try again. Still working the bugs out I guess.

Sorry skipped video watched now

I'd be surprised if they were excluded. Other resorts have internal loops too, it is just much easier to include them.

I am not talking about the buses to the parks. i am talking about the three routes between the outpost and settlement, Yellow, Orange and Purple

DisneyJoeJun 19, 2018

Yes, all internal buses are included, an example was shown in the youtube video

Swan and Dolphin have the boards at the bus stops so hopefully will be in the app as well

Does anyone know if this will include the Fort Wilderness Campground internal buses

Wouldn't it be nice to know a bus isn't coming for 20 min, so you can just go to your car and skip the 15 min sitting at the bus stop?
