Talking I was on a ME bus today!

Very spiffy and Disney like. The Mears rep was VERY nice.
And yes -- there is a BATHROOM! It looks like an airplane bathroom.
And there are multiple (small) TV monitors so Disney movies can be shown. I think they said there was accessibility for two wheelchairs on each bus.
The seats were of a red plush cloth patterned with stars. It reminded me of the All Stars resorts. (primary colors)
I snapped digital photos, but don't have a service to load the photos on for viewing to link to this board.
If anyone has access to that and is interested, tomorrow evening I can e-mail photos to them and they can post them on the Dis.
I saw the booklet that is mailed to guests also. I was told some were already mailed.
Enjoy!

I know that I read that they were doing soft runs for the baggage a couple of days ago so they are probably doing some passenger bus soft runs now that it is so close. Just a guess

Thanks.

The luggage tabs in the booklet had bar code scanning on them. Looked a lot like what you have slapped around your luggage handle at the airport.
I did not take the time to read the booklet, but just by scanning it seemed thorough and self explanatory.
The size of the booklet reminded me of the dimensions of a printed airplane ticket -- long rectangular.
There have been soft runnings of ME for quite some time.

so are you indicating that you officially "used" ME or just rode around on the bus??
If so what was the luggage transfer like, and the check-in procedure at MCO?
Any details would be appreciated by all I'm sure!
Thanks

How long did it take to get from the airport to the resort?

Did you have to wait long at the airport or was it less then 1/2 hour from the time you landed til the time you boarded the bus.

Thanks.

Mears is using the ME buses on their regular bus runs until ME begins.
