Walt Disney World Bus Involved In Crash With SUV

If you are unfamiliar with how to get around Walt Disney World Resort, then it can be very overwhelming. The entire Resort is over 39 square miles, and with all the Parks and hotels and people trying to get around, it can make for some uneasy driving. Add to that there are Walt Disney World Resort buses that need to get Resort hotel Guests where they need to go, paying attention while on the road is vitally important. Unfortunately, even though you are in the Most Magical Place on Earth, unmagical things can happen, including car accidents.

Late in the evening on August 5 — a Friday night — a Walt Disney World Resort bus was involved in an accident with a tourist driving an SUV. The accident occurred at the intersection of North World Drive and Seven Seas Drive, which is right near Disney’s Ticket and Transportation Center, where Guests also park if they want to go to Magic Kingdom Park.

All Guests traveling on the bus were evacuated and put on another Disney bus to return to their destination. Reports also indicate that the SUV involved in the crash was towed away from the accident.
