    It was very nice of the driver to let you ride.
    Thank you for the info, I will see if I can find more online. I thought it was nice of the driver also to offer a ride!

    Hi Denise
    Can you give a close up back end of the bus or do you remember who made the bus?
    so I can look it up on the internet
    thank you for your help.

    The 4 of us were treated to a hybrid bus ride (it was testing, and not open for regular guests - but the driver offered since we showed an interest in the bus). I had put up pics last year of a different hybrid - both were being tested at Fort Wilderness.:

    That Picture I need it.
    Yes the bus are make by Design line
    DesignLine constructs its vehicles with advanced extruded aluminum technology (similar to that employed in light rail cars) thereby achieving greater strength and frame life while substantially reducing vehicle weight. The end result is the most fuel efficient vehicle available.
    Here there web site
    On this type bus

    Anyone know if that yellow stripe down at the bottom of the tower is a design element or (hopefully) just corrosion protection coating? The bright yellow band at the bottom just doesn't fit with the Contemporary styling... (ok yeah not the ONLY thing... )

    The "yellow stripe" is actually insulation. It will be covered with something to make it look like the existing buildings I'm sure. Either stucco or stone I'm guessing.

    Great photos as usual Denise. You are the ultimate weekly window into WDW for the rest of the cruel real World out there.

    Just one comment that has nothing to do with your excellent photography... I am not at all happy about seeing the destruction of the Contemporary property for that horrible albatross being built next to it. It has destroyed the cosmetic landscape of the Contemporary Resort.

    Thank goodness I had a horrible thought of them painting the building in Mickey red black and yellow for a bit...

    TDL - I miss the old CR building, the two sides went very well with the tower. I don't know how the new building will look in person when done, so I'll hold judgement. But I can't see the new one fitting as well as the old did.

    And thanks - I hope the non-Disney world isn't really too cruel! I've been reading up on your own travels, and enjoying your photos.

    The Southern side may look similar in a few years.
