After cruise, can you just get on bus without reservation?

This is just a curious question and the planning OCD part of me would never go without a reservation, but I'm just wondering...if you are a total newbie at this, didn't think of transportation to your Disney hotel till the morning of debarkation, could you walk outside, go up to that desk and ask to get on and pay there?

No, Not outside, but I have bought a transfer that morning at the GS desk onboard. There is no desk outside or means to accept payment. It would have to be done onboard.

Ok, so that desk outside is strictly for telling you which bus to get on and that's it?

And now that I think about it, nobody even validated that morning whether we had any proof that we paid, I thought that was a little strange.

When we normally pre arrange DCL transfers the CM checks our KTTW card as we leave the terminal to see if we purchased transfers...they just look at it so it must have some code on it to prove transfers were purchased.

The CM outside greets you and asks where you are heading to and directs you to correct bus (WDW buses or MCO buses). The tend to load and leave when full so there are a few buses going to each place.

Which CM, I don't recall anyone checking, but it's such a fast process getting off they probably did?

IIRC if you buy the transfer onboard, they put a tiny sticker on your KTTW card.

I can confirm..

if you schedule transfer and pay for it before departing the ship, they put a sticker on your KTTW card. Anyone recall what the rate is pp for one way transfer?

If you paid for transfers there would be a code T on your key to the world card. If you want to add a last minute transfer you go to the desk.
