Construction outside Magic Kingdom - bus area
 
does anyone know what exactly is going on? looks like they are building more bus stops. not sure if they are moving things around or just adding more. haven't seen any of the new buses...but could it be for that as well?

I'm really hoping they add bussing between parks. That would be great!!

Last I've heard they were making all bus stops longer to accommodate the longer new busses coming soon.

Yes. They're adding another bus loop to accommodate the new articulated buses. :)

bus area
 
i also wish they would add buses going from one park to the other parks. that would be terrific for those who hop, and we do.

i also think the longer buses will help. ;)

They do but they don't. I think the PP is requesting park to park busses at the bus loops on the MK side of the lagoon, and last I was there the park to park busses only stopped at the TTC where one would need to take a boat or monorail to the MK. Direct bus service to the MK is a resort perk, and they don't seem to have included the hopping busses in that since the hopping busses don't service a resort.

At the end of the night, you feel your never going to get to Pops bus stop

The plan, as I know it (and it may not be 100% correct, or it could have changed), is the third bus loop will take on the POP and AoA resort stops with the new articulated buses, which are 50% longer than the existing buses.

In addition, the MK park-to-park buses will be moved to the new loop from the TTC.

I'm not aware of articulated buses being used at any other resorts at this time, but I did notice that the stops at SSR appear as if they are long enough to handle them.

We just returned from a stay at BLT, and my first comment when seeing the construction was " wow that is far away from the park"

Yet it's closer than the TTC...or the Contemporary, and people walk that perfectly fine.

Wasn't much else they could do.

Yeah, but a long walk to your resort is not the same as a long walk to a wait for a bus to your resort, IMO.

Agreed there was no other choice. maybe they will have a shuttle. lol

I actually don't think the distance really is all that much greater. Probably only 150-200 feet. If they move the POP buses to the close end as well, it will probably be a shorter walk than it is now. :) Then put the P2P buses at the far end, and everything could actually closer by comparison...
