Walt Disney World to Offer Uber-Like Transportation Service

Walt Disney World is expected to launch a brand new transportation service that would be similar to how Uber and similar companies operate.  The service would pick guests up from any location and deliver them directly to the location of their choice.  This service is expected to be a guest-paid service as opposed to the free transportation options that Disney already provides.  The service would be much more guest-friendly in that guests will have more options when it comes to getting from their resort to another resort, which currently is achieved by traveling to a them park and then catching connecting transportation from there.  The service would also drop guests as close to their destination, particularly their resort room, as possible rather than being limited to the standard bus drop off locations.

Disney has started hiring drivers for the new service.  The cast members in these positions must have at least 1 year of experience.  They must also be well versed in all things Walt Disney World-related so that they can help answer any guest questions.  The vehicles used for the service are also expected to be electric vehicles so that they are more energy efficient and cost-effective in the long run.

Who out there would use an Uber-like service to get to your destination faster?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
