I'm definitely not a fan. The old ones were more fun looking. This says business convention all over it.

I like the retro styles of the Cruise Line and Magical Express coaches in their respective liveries, but it is going to take me a little time to get used to this. I really like the idea of a new look but I think they could have gone with a flashier design for the Transports. Overall, they will grow on me and I will be anxious to ride them when I get down there on my next trip in November!

Yup. I remember those buses quite well. You can even see in that picture the less faded square of paint on the line above the front wheel where the old Route Flag was placed.


As a bit of cool history....


the Early 80's route flag chart



And then an Early 90's version....






As you can see, in order to get to the MK Everyone used to route thru the TTC, even resort guests. It wasn't until the early 90's that the MK Bus loop came into existance and resort buses started dropping off at the front of the park.

I remember when the TTC was really, the transportation AND ticket center. Not just the ticket booths for the MK. When the "new" old busses came out (the Disney down the side in script) everyone was wowed. Heck I remember when those Orion buses were still nice on the inside !

I do like the new design for its classy, retro look but I still think it needs disneyfied a bit.

Back in the 80's and early 90's people didn't care or complain what the buses looked like because, you know, it's just a bus.

This post made me laugh out loud this morning. Thank you sir, for seeing the forest and not the trees, something that's not always easy on this board where every decision is picked apart ad nauseum.

It depends on your definition of Disney. I like the classic look of the new bus style. Like someone else said, buses aren't exactly the pinnacle of Disney transportation, so I'm never happy to see or use one anyway.

I wish Disney would invest in personal rapid transport.

It was speculated on the dis podcast that the new design will allow a larger area for "wraps" over the windows for advertisements, promotions, etc.

Eh...I don't really love it...but it is just a bus so I guess it doesn't really matter either.

When I first saw the bus I wasn't too impressed and figured I'd just have to get used to it, but after seeing this picture, I really like this.

As long as it gets me where I need to go, I'll get on anything.
