    Hello!
    I saw this on Mouseplanet's weekly update. I think this is huge for the Disney resorts and am surprised it took this long for the addition!! Does anyone have information on Disney's plans to incorporate this at the other resorts, hopefully in the near future?? Hoping it will be added at Contemporary soon!

    There was an article on October 11th HERE. According to some forum discussions I read, so far the times have not been accurate at all and haven't been really useful to guests. Perhaps they'll work the glitches out over time.

    Quite honestly, I don't want them anywhere. Can you see flocks of folks anxious to get to rope drop, looking at their watches, not relaxing, calling over to Jimmie and Susie that they HAVE to be right there, right now because the bus will be arriving in less than a minute and then.....

    The bus doesn't get there exactly on time.

    I'm on vacation, I want to relax, not stick to some schedule posted for Type As to obsess over it. I can avoid that in the parks, I can't avoid it waiting for a bus at my resort where I'm supposed to be forgetting about real life for a while.
