Disney resort buses have been on the 20 minute schedule for ages and nothing has changed with that.

I don’t think it affects the scheduled buses. It could possibly affect the numbers waiting, and therefore they may not have to call for extra buses as often. But somehow I think the effect will be pretty small to negligible.

IMHO the app does affect wdw transportation any more than a private car would. And wdw dispatch is always monitoring the flow requirements.

The Convenience of Uber and Lyft are the main drawing points for them. Cost compared to taxi is nice, but I can go on my Lyft app or Uber app and have a van come to wherever I am in about 5 minutes.

And they are great for going somewhere that the buses don't really run. If I'm at one resort and I need to go to another resort, I no longer have to catch a bus to Magic Kingdom or Disney Springs, so I can get off and wait and then catch another bus!

Default Freezer at BCV?

Hi everyone!

Has anyone requested that stored food items specifically be placed in Freezer storage at BCV? We plan on arriving early in the day for an upcoming stay and wanted to find out if this option is available.

Thanks!

Well we’ve done a split stay, moving to BCV with freezer items. And they were still frozen when we got them delivered.

All resorts have a freezer. Pretty sure it’s at the BC itself, not BCV.

Yes, I believe it's in the luggage room along with the fridge

Default HS Special ticketed event

Thanks to all for the quick responses!

Another question: I see a special ticketed event at HS on October 24th from 7:30 - 9:00 am. Any ideas on what it might be?
TIA!

That’s EMM for Toy Story Land. Similar to the one at MK but just the TSL rides, plus breakfast from Woody’s Lunchbox.

Thanks! Just looked at the event, $79 for three rides. I will pass. I didn't realized they did this at HS, I thought it as just at MK.
