CONFIRMED: Bus Wait Times Coming to the My Disney Experience App for Walt Disney World Resort Guests

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Yesterday we showed you some icons that may be appearing soon in the My Disney Experience app that would seem to indicate that bus arrival times will be a new feature added to the app in a future update.

Today, we have some screenshots to share with you of the actual My Disney Experience app showing the actual information you will see when the bus arrival times feature goes live.

It appears that you will need an active resort reservation in order to see the bus times option. From your “My Reservation” screen, you’ll tap the “See Bus Times” icon to access the bus arrival times.

This will then bring you to the “Next Bus Times” screen, where it shows the departure location (presumably your current location), and the estimated arrival time of the next bus to each of the theme parks.

For destinations where the bus time is not available (due to a glitch in the system or something similar), the time will just say “Every 20 Minutes.” For destinations that do not have a direct bus route from your location, the app will tell you where to go to transfer to another bus for your desired destination. Busses to Disney Springs are also included in the app, just like on the screens at the bus stops at the resort.

And note there is the usual disclaimer that times are subject to change.
