Wouldn't be easier to take the Monorail from Epcot to TPC and then to MK? The buses can be a hassle, especially if you have a large group. This is of course assuming you have an AP/PAP or some form of park hopper.

Interesting question! I assume the bus heads back out to a park or somewhere after the last of the returning passengers are off the bus. Maybe they fully empty the bus of all returning passengers, then switch to pickup mode. That would make the BW the last dropoff stop and also the first pickup stop to the new destination. That would be inefficient since they would then have to go back to the Swan and Dolphin to pick up passengers for the new destination but maybe that's what they do.

We always get off at the first stop on the way back and walk to the BWV from there so I don't know if they pick up passengers as well as drop them off when they stop at the Swan and at the Dolphin. Does anybody know?

ETA: Maybe from morning until early afternoon they stop at the BW first, then the Dolphin, then the Swan and after a certain time of day they reverse the order. So when you head out to the MK in the morning the bus stops at the BW stop first but when you are returning later in the day the order has changed. At one time they did that with the boats that go between the MK, WL and Fort Wilderness. For part of the day the order was MK->WL->FW->MK and for the rest of the day it was MK->FW->WL->MK.

You have to have park admission to get through Epcot. And then you have to wait for two monorails. It is probably quicker to just take the bus.
