Disney is not going to risk a contract they get paid for for doing absolutely nothing.

What is going on is nothing more than advertising for the upcoming P+F special, and nothing more, and is no different than what they've done with the monorail, except it's even easier as they don't have to worry about what route it runs.

Those bothered by shameless marketing should stay away from WDW; the whole place is made to move product.
Ditto!!

It does seem odd to me to be advertising the Marvel characters on the busses- isn't that encouraging people to go spend their vacation dollars at Universal?

I saw the marvel buses personally. They look like something that belongs on international drive. They definitely don't look like something the imagineers came up with. I wouldn't mind Marvel buses but these they have look cheesy. Just my opinion

It's encouraging people to watch a special episode of Phineas and Ferb, featuring characters that Disney owns through their Marvel subsidiary. It isn't advertising any attractions, or character meets, or even a theme park.

ABC Family shows the Harry Potter movies on a regular basis, this would encourage people to go to Uni also, not to mention the fact that a lot of people who are watching ABC Family are watching it on Comcast cable which owns Universal. Media is a tangled web of interdependent licensing deals.

They also have to walk a fine line around monopolistic practices as well. I think in some cases they get around it these days, but the more consolidation done between studios, distributors, networks, and providers, the more potential issues can be raised that could get them in trouble.
