In the past few months, quite a few transportation changes were introduced at the Walt Disney World Resort, mostly involving the free bus service connecting the parks to the on-site hotels. While you might be aware of some of them (some of these advisories were shared before), we thought it would be helpful to post a general overview of all the newer changes, as they could have an impact on your upcoming visit (especially if you have scheduled everything in advance).

NEW - Traffic Signal Installation on Vacation Club Way
A new traffic signal is being installed this week on Vacation Club Way between the entry to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and The Treehouse Villas. It will be activated by traffic and pedestrians entering or crossing Vacation Club Way.
