This is a common issue, and it's easily fixed! Bus drivers are fine if you ask them, or we can tell if guests are unsure. If you are at one of the multi-bus-stop DVC resorts and you choose to take the bus (me), make absolutely sure to know your bus stop. For instance:
  • On the Coronado Springs bus, the PA system calls them out as "stop number x" instead of the actual name of the area. If you accidentally get off on Stop 2 (Casitas) by mistake, the next bus can take you to your stop. Stop 1 is the tower or main building.
  • Port Orleans Riverside is called out as directions (West, North, East, South). The "South" stop is the main building, also known as "Riverside".
  • Resorts like Caribbean and Saratoga announce the area. Caribbean also has an internal shuttle which goes to the SkyLiner (resort buses don't).
  • Old Key West announces the street, except Southpoint (2nd stop) and Hospitality (main).
  • For Animal Kingdom Lodge, we have 2 stops, Kidane and Jambo, all buses go to Kidane first then Jambo except Disney Springs, which goes the opposite.
  • With the Wilderness resorts, some theme parks go to both, some separate the two. If you want to go to the Hoopdie-Doo Review (or whatever it's spelled), the easiest is to go to Wilderness Lodge from any theme park, then hop on the Magic Kingdom bus, because that bus' next stop is the Settlement. If you are at Fort Wilderness (aka campgrounds), there are shuttle buses that go from that stop to the campgrounds with a stop at the Settlement.
  • If you are at one DVC resort and you need to get to another one, like if you had dinner at Animal Kingdom Lodge but you're staying at Grand Floridian, during the day just hop on any theme park bus and transfer there. But, after the theme parks are closed (use the app to see theme park hours that day), go to Disney Springs if they haven't closed yet. Disney Transportation (buses) prefers to use buses after closing for guests at that park going "home".
