It may take people to make the dream of Walt Disney World a reality, but it takes busses, monorails, and boats to get the dream moving. It may sound hyperbolic, but Walt Disney World really is its own city, and as such it is constantly making changes to the various transportation options around the resort in order to better serve the guests and Cast Members who rely on Disney's complex transportation system every day. If you are going to be riding a bus, parking tram, or using any other of Walt Disney World's transportation options, here are a few interesting changes that you should probably know about! 

1. My Disney Experience updated with bus times schedule

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.

2. New parking entrance now under construction for Disney's Hollywood Studios

Though it has been in the planning stages for several years now, several days ago Disney finally started construction on a new parking entrance for Disney's Hollywood Studios, which will use a series of entry and exit ramps, that will pull traffic from Victory Way near to Art of Animation and Pop Century, as well as Osceola Parkway, relieving pressure from Buena Vista Drive. 

It is unknown how long this project will take to complete, but we'd imagine this new parking plaza will be done before the end of the year and will be in use by the time the busy holiday season rolls around.
