    This is a new one for me. Halfway to the resorts and our bus blew a tire! Sitting on the side of the road in the bus waiting for a replacement so we can al unload and get back underway.

    Unfortunately, this bus is COMPLETELY FULL! Every seat! It’s going to be awhile until we all get moving again.

    but at least driver was able to stop bus safely. not at Disney but our area has a lot of tour buses and have seen on tv where a number have rolled because of a blown tire. thank God you guys are safe and waiting for another bus

    Good thing this didn't happen on the way to the airport.

    You know, as I was sitting there that’s exactly what I was thinking! I was thinking ok, this is part of why we have to get the bus so early!

    It took 35 minutes for the new bus to come and get us all loaded up again. Surpringly faster than I anticipated. It’s all good. I’m at Disney and no one got hurt.

    On the way back to our resort from a park one night the brakes on the bus went out. Actually we were in the resort area about a block away from the bus stop. We had to wait in the bus for another bus to come and take us to the stop. We were all given a FastPass for any ride in any park. It was worth it.
