    MK new bus loop update

    The bus loop that has been under construction for what seems like forever is structurally complete. Landscaping and aesthetics, the final touches are being completed currently.

    The new bus loop will take the articulated (bendy double length) buses that are anticipated to service the large volume resorts. The loop will also take overflow needs.

    At some point the MK park transfer buses are suppose to shift from the TTC to one of the 3 bus loops. This is to take pressure off the monorail and ferry. Guests will only need to take one mode of transportation to transfer to another park instead of two, currently traveling to the TTC first then to a bus. Currently it is rumored the transfer buses will service DHS and AK daily however when the monorails are down Epcot could be added to the loop.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: MK new bus loop update

    The new MK bus loop opens up tomorrow, Sunday November 24th. It will be a hike, about even with the Contemporary hotel. The extra long bus stops will either hold the extra long bendy buses or accommodation 2 standard buses.

    The new loops will also bring enough new space to allow the park to park buses to move to the MK resort loop area.
    This will go into effect December 15th for transfers to Animal Kingdom & DHS's.

    As of now, the resorts that will be now be moved and positioned at the new and farthest loop will be Port Orleans Riverside, The three, All Start Movies, Sports and Music, Pop, Caribbean and Art of Animation.

    Saw the beginnings of the bus loop expansion. They were digging out areas and setting up to pour out concrete.

    Now that confuses me. That opened a couple weeks ago. What the heck are they doing now?

    Re: MK new bus loop update

    The area under construction seemed to be closer to the Contemporary than the Magic Kingdom. It was at the VERY end of the bus loop. I'd say it was a far walk, but then considering how far out the buses are from Animal Kingdom...
