Disney’s Magical Express is usually the first taste of Disney that most guests get upon arrival at Orlando International Airport. The bus transportation system from the airport to Disney resorts is extremely popular and definitely has an iconic look. Disney has announced that they will be redesigning the buses to be similar to those used for the Disney Cruise Line.
I think this will be a great move on Disney’s part. It adds the characters to the bus design and makes it feel more whimsical and magical. Plus Disney’s use of the cruise line buses for regular resort DME will not stand out as much anymore. My only complaint on the new design is that the “port holes” can take up some of the lower window space and make it hard for children to look out. That point is probably not important since I would guess that most guests are watching DMETV on the bus, but for us frequent Disney travelers it’s nice to look out at the Florida landscape.
