While it may never see the light of day, Walt Disney Imagineering was tasked with changing Walt Disney World Resort buses for the better and created something called the Sorcerer Class transport.
The bus (displayed just for attendees of the D23 Destination D event over the weekend) looks like any Walt Disney World Resort bus on the outside, but inside guests would find special lighting, pre-recorded audio triggered by guests, and a tricked out interior design.
In theory, the automated announcer would talk guests through what they could see at their destination, but also recognize birthdays and other events on-board the motor coach through the RFID technology in the MagicBand.
With special Sorcerer Mickey Mouse themed-straps, posters with the Disney World park icons, and other decor, the bus is far more charming than the usual fare that transports guests from one place to another around the Vacation Kingdom of the World.
The lighting above is in-time to a variety of audio playing abroad the bus, best viewed in our video down below:
Again, Disney clearly stated that the busses are not in production, nor are they planned to be, but it is interesting to see that this was at least a concept. It is always said that good ideas never go away at Walt Disney Imagineering, so it is more than likely that some of the features of this transport could show up at Walt Disney World at some point in time. We will just have to wait and see…
