The point is that they don't necessarily have the right to park in parking lots that are not designated as "park" parking lots for the day and jump the bus to whichever park they want to go to. I would love to see the above system inplememted for the new parking garage if it happens.

My comments were in response to suggestions that resort ID or encoded wristbands be required to board a resort bus. I was pointing out park hoppers and APs that they pay into the transportation system, and if those payments are reduced or eliminated based upon restricting access to the entire system, then the shortfall would be made up through a dues increase for DVC resort owners and an increase in room rates for the cash resorts. The costs associated with running the bus system to the resorts on a 20 to 30 minute schedule all day are fixed. The buses will run, empty or full and the resorts will be charged.

The best solution is not restricting bus access, but charging for parking at DtD. But there would still be those that walk to SSR from the DtD resort hotels because the Disney resort transportation is better.
