    I remember them! I think the drivers got annoyed because they were always "beeping" at people to get out of the way! LOL!

    We stole one once and wound up at Church Street Station. Man, the 90's were fun.

    I think the safety issue led to them being garaged.

    They were great for people who had trouble getting around the World Showcase - but I hated walking behind them. Whatever they used for fuel smelled just awful!!

    Not entirely garaged. Remember they pull them out (or did, at least) as Character Connection busses. I remember how they would bring out charaters dressed in outfits from different countries (or that somehow represented a nation from World Showcase) and they would make stops around the lagoon, starting at the back of Future World. We'd meet as many characters as we could during the first pass, then chase the bus to Mexico and grab the rest.
