Why do I need this app?
Walt Disney World is a great place to vacation with the family. Maybe the best. But If you've ever stayed "on premise" at one of the resorts you know how unpredictable the Disney World bus transportation system can be when taking you to and from the theme parks, Downtown Disney and your resort. Not knowing when a bus is going to pick you and your family up for your next destination can be very frustrating.
You and your family walk down to the bus stop all fired up to hit the parks. You sit on a bench dt(if they're not all taken up) and wait for what seems like an eternity as your kids keep asking "Daddy, where's the bus?". The only answer you can give them is "it will be here soon". As the kids see bus after bus go by not destined for their park the smile on their faces get smaller and smaller.
Does this sound familiar?
You only have a small amount of time on vacation and who wants to spend it sitting at a bus stop when you could be enjoying other parts of your Disney vacation. Make your vacation better. Reduce some stress and get more out of your time at Disney World. Visit the app store to Download DPart - Disney World bus transportation app.
What does it do?
DPart is a community-based vehicle tracking iPhone app for the Walt Disney World bus transportation system. It is completely driven by DPart users who share real-time departure information when riding and waiting for Walt Disney World buses. By using this app you can get approximate wait times and schedules of the next bus to arrive at a location and take you to a theme park or a resort.
When ridding or waiting for a bus you "check in" with DPart on where you're coming from. Where you're going to. By doing this you help other DPart users know when a bus has left from their location.
Find My Bus
When going to a theme park or resort you ask DPart when was the last bus to leave from a location. DPart will tell you when the last bus has left a location so you can know approximately how long until the next bus will arrive to take you to your destination.
Let's walk through a "Find My Bus" example. You're staying at the Art of Animation resort and want to go to the Magic Kingdom by bus. You launch the DPart app, it detects you're staying at the Art of Animation, you select Magic Kingdom as your "To" location, and then you press the "Find My Bus" button. The app then displays the approximate time the next bus will depart from the Art of Animation that day.
