I just got back from visiting WDW with my brother and sister in law for an extended weekend. First off, I've been visiting every year since I was born I used to live in Ohio. Living in Florida is a relatively new thing for me. So, the transport system at the parks used to be something we enjoyed. Now, not so much.
Anyways, the last three trips I've made with my family, we've realized the bus system is getting worse and worse. I'm not sure if it's because the resort is getting bigger or they're running buses less often. But, it's becoming quite ridiculous actually. We stay at Fort Wilderness more than any other resort, and their buses are by far the absolute worst.
First you have to wait for an internal bus, then you have to wait for the external bus which takes you to the parks. Many times, these external buses are shared with other resorts. When we first got to the campground on Thursday, we went to the Magic Kingdom. Well, the internal bus took FORTY FIVE minutes to show up. The boats are almost always on time and frequent, so there was no issue there. But, on the way back, it took us an hour and a half to get back to our cabin from the Magic Kingdom.
After that, we drove everywhere and it was so much less stressful. While driving, we noticed there were always a TON of people waiting at the bus stops, both in the campground and at the parks. This wasn't just for us either. It seemed like all the resort stops were packed with people.
I know the buses are "free", but how many other people think the transportation system is beyond abysmal at this point? How many of you drive and don't even bother with Disney Transport anymore?
