    Yep. I like it. I thought the old color scheme was too "early 90's" looking.

    Kind of early 60s retro. Classic red, white, and black Mickey colors.

    I may be in the minority but I don't like it at all. When I think of Disney I think of colorful and fun. this doesn't seem to convey that to me.

    I did notice the new uniforms when we were there in Dec. I like the new streamline type look. I know the old one was maybe 90s ish like someone said but it was "fun" and colorful. Maybe they should add classic Mickey to it. That would fit with the retro look, even just a Mickey silhouette.

    I agree. The new look will take some getting used too.

    Are they just new colors or are they new busses?

    It's a bus. As long as it takes me from point A to point B in a timely fashion, I don't care what colors they paint them.

    Wow, that's very "meh" to me. I like the design but some brighter coloring where the gray is would be nice. The font type for "Transport" I'd like to see jazzed up a bit too.

    But as long as it gets us from point A to point B, beggars can't be choosers. :3dglasses

    I do like it. I think it just needs little more "disneyfied." Throw a Mickey silhouette or something on there.

    Nice. And my DS (7) will be thrilled. He's a bus fanatic and will love riding on "new" buses.

    1) Count me as a "Like".
    2) The previous colors were getting old and stale.
    3) The new colors add brightness.
    4) And, are distinctive.
    5) Now, you can see why the bus drivers have new uniforms.

    I cannot say that I am a huge fan of this, but I do like it better than the current scheme....

    I guess I am in the middle, ready for a change, but not wowed!

    If Disney was trying to have buses that look like all other motorcoaches, then they achieved their goal :rolleyes2. DS and I don't really like them, they seem to lack that Disney sparkle, JMO.

    I really liked the zany look the buses had. This new style is more bland than my college's transit buses... I mean its cool and all, but I prefer the style we have now. I wish they'd just buy an all new fleet with this change though, because I'm willing to bet that the inside will remain the same, and if anything that could use a re-doing.
