we’ve been waiting nearly an hour & not 1 MK bus, but we’ve counted 6 springs buses
Something similar happened to us at CSR the day the parks reopened after Ian.

We had reservations for EPCOT but every bus that went past was for Magic Kingdom. When an EPCOT bus finally showed up, it was full so it didn't stop at our stop.

Eventually, we decided to take a bus to MK, then the monorail to EPCOT. It was probably quicker.

See!! There is still an off season and there are still opportunities to enjoy a crowd free day at Magic Kingdom! Simply predict the date for the next tropical storm, make park reservations before they close them off, and voila! Six hours of magic!
It would be just as easy as predicting what you be in the mood to eat 6 months in advance.

"There was no storm yesterday" The storm passed through the area in the early morning, but you do you. I was there for Ian, so I have a frame of reference.

However, I agree with the sentiment of MK being only open for 6 hours, yet they gladly charged full price. That's criminal, for lack of a better term at the moment.

While I agree with what is being said, I highly doubt anyone bought a one day ticket for MK yesterday.

I do as well, but you still are out a full-day admission for 6 hours of park time. If they have any semblance of a clue left when it comes to customer service, they would have granted anyone visiting a park yesterday a complimentary park day on the DME account, expiration at the end of 2023. That would have been the old-guard response, because they valued guests. The new guard just sees consumers and wants their money. It costs them nothing to do that, plus they have to book a trip if they want to use it.

They did not offer anything like this.

Were you here yesterday?

No. I only watched the radar off and on for hours, tracking the storm as it made its way across Florida, not to mention checking weather stations in and around the property. I'm sure that provided zero pertinent weather information for the area. :rolleyes:

I'll bet you would have thought the parks should have been opened the afternoon after Ian came through because, "it looks fine to me, no storm here!". Have a magical day.

i waited 40+ minutes for a bus back to Disney Springs. Finally someone else (who had waited longer than me) talked to a driver of another bus and he said he would take us there.

I think there was a lack of drivers yesterday, which makes sense. Could be some of the data wasn’t working as well? I know the mobile ordering wasn’t working at the contemporary.

I felt the winds in the area where still kicking until at least 2 PM. I cannot imagine how tough it must be to drive a high profile vehicle such as a bus with those winds and those gusts. I am sort of surprised to hear they had busses running at what noon?

I am also certain it must have been tough to get folks into work for many reasons that day.
