Here’s a new rumor that could make your travels around Walt Disney World a bit more enjoyable. Recent speculation has stated that Disney is planning to add WiFi to the buses used for transportation at Walt Disney World.
Details on this rumor are extremely limited. While we have heard the speculation, we haven’t been able to pin down if / when this project might be happening. However, WiFi being installed on the buses around Walt Disney World is one of the more believable rumors that has surfaced of late.
Disney has made using the My Disney Experience mobile app an essential part of any Walt Disney World vacation. From making dining reservations to altering FastPass+ selections, the app can assist almost every aspect of your vacation. But, the app is a lot easier to use if you have a steady internet connection that won’t drain your battery.
The push towards the My Disney Experience app and the Play Disney Parks app has been met with Disney attempting to improve its WiFi at its theme parks and resorts. Having a strong WiFi connection can be imperative for non-American visitors or guests without a large data plan. Creating a strong WiFi network that is widely accessible to guests is a necessary step as the apps grow in prominence.
While the rumor only mentioned the on-property buses, we have to wonder whether or not the Disney Magical Express would also be included in a WiFi project. Those buses are operated by a third party, but the addition of WiFi would make those trips to and from the airport a bit more enjoyable.
Stay tuned. We’ll let you know if we hear more about this alleged WiFi project.
