(UPDATED 9/11/19): Walt Disney World has just added more character themed bus overlays this month adding to the existing ones they rolled out in July 2019. These new overlays will bring just a little more magic with your favorite Disney characters on the buses.
The new group of characters now on the buses are from: Frozen, Moana, Monsters Inc. and The Lion King, and are joining the “sensational six” which have already been spotted around property featuring: Mickey, Mouse Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto.
These new buses feature USB charging ports for your mobile devices and will be including Wi-Fi soon that guests can use when traveling to and from the parks.
Here is a look at some of the newest themed buses. The first is The Lion King:
Thank goodness is the original animated version and not the new “live action” Lion King!
We also have a Monsters Inc overlay with Mike and Sully:
and there’s a Moana overlay too:
Lastly and not pictured is a Frozen bus, most likely with Anna and Elsa at least and probably Olaf too I’m guessing.
These 4 new bus overlays join the original classic Disney characters already in circulation featuring the Sensational Six, Mickey, Mouse Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto:
You’ll love the new colors like red and yellow on the Mickey buses, Minnie’s famous polka dots, and the pastel hues of Daisy.
This goes along with Disney’s push towards more entertaining transportation like the Minnie Vans that were introduced 2 years and the brand new Disney Skyliner gondolas coming this Summer. Both of those systems feature famous Disney characters.
But the news isn’t only the outside of the new Disney World buses, but the insides are equally as nice! you will also enjoy refreshed interiors that include brand new blue seats and laminate floors. This should be a big upgrade over the current buses which are quickly becoming dated.
Technology on the buses is also improving with many buses getting USB charging ports between the seats so you won’t have to worry about not being able to use your smartphone because the battery is dead.
Here is what the seats look like:
That’s definitely going to come in handy after a long day in the parks of using your mobile device!
The word on the street is also that Disney is getting ready to introduce Wifi onboard the Disney World buses soon, though the bugs are still being worked out of the system. No word yet when you can expect that but it should be pretty soon.
Here’s a video that gives you a better look into these new Walt Disney World buses with the Disney characters:
