Earlier this month we timed the bus service at Pop Century, All-Star Sports and Art of Animation over four days, to every destination served. Times for 430 bus routes were collected from these resorts, between 7:30 AM and 11 AM (the peak time for transit to the parks).
A bus to the Magic Kingdom came every 7 mins at Pop, 8 minutes at Animation, 11 minutes at Sports
To Epcot every 10 mins at Pop, 12 minutes at Animation, every 11 minutes at Sports
To DHS, every 10 minutes at Animation and Pop, every 12 minutes at Sports
To Animal Kingdom every 12 minutes at Pop, 11 minutes at Animation, 10 minutes at Sports
To DTD/TL every 15 minutes at Animation and Pop, every 16 minutes at Sports
A couple of things:
- The average time between bus arrivals is somewhere around 12 minutes, which is substantially better than 2014, when we measured it at 16 minutes
- Sports wasn’t sharing with the other AS resorts, as far as we could tell
- The bus service seems roughly equal across the resorts we’ve looked at
We did several other resorts, too. I’ll post them if anyone’s interested.
