Bus Times at Walt Disney World Resort Now Available in Newly Redesigned My Disney Experience App

If you have ever wondered when the next bus is going to arrive at their Disney Resort hotel, the answer will now be right at your fingertips.

Disney is rolling out a brand new bus time feature in the My Disney Experience mobile app that enables you to spend less time waiting at the bus stop and more time getting ready for a fun-filled day in the parks. With this feature, you can quickly discover up-to-the-minute estimates for when the next buses will depart from your Disney Resort hotel and when you will complete your journey to your destination.

The app regularly 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. You can access the feature throughout your stay by tapping “See Bus Times” when viewing an active Disney Resort hotel reservation associated with your account.

You may also notice that this My Disney Experience update brings a new and improved design to the app, making it easier than ever for you to navigate and find what you are looking for – from the new bus time feature and mobile food ordering service to adding tickets, booking FastPass+ selections and discovering key park offerings.

This is just the most recent example of how Disney is using digital technology to make the Guest experience even more convenient. During the past year alone, they have added app features that allow Guests to view room charges, keep track of Disney dining plan usage, check in online to start their vacation even faster, use their mobile devices as a digital key (now available at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and coming soon to additional Disney Resort hotels) and more.

You can explore all that’s new in My Disney Experience by updating to the current version of the app, now available in the Apple Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices.

And there’s more coming soon! Their teams are constantly exploring and innovating new enhancements to My Disney Experience as it continues to grow and evolve, so be sure to stay tuned for the latest updates.
