    How accurate are the bus arrival times on MDE? Last year the screens at the bus stop at OKW were not consistently accurate so wondering if the new MDE feature works any better?

    Hi, Jennifer! So glad to see that you motored on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Let's hop on the bus and get going to your Walt Disney World vacation!

    I bet you've lost count of how many times you've taken a Walt Disney World Resort bus. I know I have! It's an efficient way to get around - and my little guy just loves to ride! When Disney introduced next bus arrival monitors at the Resort hotels and then added the next bus feature to the My Disney Experience app, I knew it would be a huge improvement for us as we traveled around the Walt Disney World Resort. And so far, it hasn't disappointed!

    In my experience, the posted bus arrival times on the monitors at your bus stop match up exactly with the times on the My Disney Experience app. I do find that those times are accurate, but I'll give you a caveat. The arrival times are updating in real time, so if a bus is taking longer than expected due to traffic or some other delay, you'll see the arrival time change. For example, let's say you check the app from your Resort hotel room, and it says the bus is expected at your stop at 9:30. By the time you walk to the stop, it may have shifted to 9:35. The time can change as the bus's actual travel time changes, but I've found that the final arrival time does match the adjusted posted time.

    I hope this helps you get around during your jam-packed Disney days, Jennifer. Feel free to hop aboard with us anytime if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
