Early this morning a Disney airport bus shuttle was involved in a traffic accident on the way to Orlando International.
It was hit from behind by a semi-truck. (Update: It appears the collision was more serious, see updated OS article.) Five passengers were taken to the hospital with injuries, although they were reported to be minor in nature.
Disney’s Mickey’s Magical Express uses buses with a Disney theme, but owned and operated by a local charter company. This service, free to those staying at a Disney resort, is credited by Disney for helping keep guests on property instead of visiting other area attractions.
It seems like there’s been a Disney Bus crash every other week or so. I’m sure some of it is just the law of averages catching up with an increased Disney fleet. Still, not exactly the best publicity for the resort.
