Exactly! I remember a driver like that. It was so nice and refreshing. I also remember a driver who had great WDW trivia.
It really is remarkable how little things like the attitude of a bus driver can really make your time there so much more memorable. :yes:
We had one driver on one of our trips who kept insisting that there was no eating, drinking or smoking allowed on the bus. Or, for that matter, no talking or laughing by those two young ladies about halfway back on the bus. Initially, the girls looked stunned. But then they realized it was a joke and started to giggle. Of course, that made him worse. Finally, he told us that we had to help him quiet these girls down or nobody was getting off the bus. By this time, everyone was laughing so hard that there was no hope of anyone being quiet for him. True to his word, he wouldn't open the doors till we had the girls settled down. Sort of. :unsure:
All told, a whole bunch of fun and the start of a great day at WDW! :thumbsup:
Tom (:macwave:... perhaps I should practice Bob Newhart's "The Bus Driver"!)
We were squashed in like sardines and ride was scary so took the boat back to the Swan I would walk rather than that, some of the passengers who do not give up seats for seniors and let kids occupy them irritate me I always used to have my daughter on my knee
evolution who love it
Considering they're deluxe resorts, that shared bus to yacht club, beach club, boardwalk, swan & dolphin is just hideous! We were SO crushed last time and all I could hear was the driver shouting "move further in please". There wasn't an inch of space, it was SO hot and took SO long. Worst bus journey of my life (other than you know, the one where the bus driver fell asleep :lol: )
When we got on the bus there were any numer of kids taking up seats by lieing across them or little kids that couldve been on parents' knees. Some of them even moved OFF parents' knees onto the seat and looked up as if to say this is MY seat and the parents did nothing.
Heck I'm not bothered for me, I'm big enough and ugly enough to stand but there were pregnant women and several very tired looking seniors who had to stand.
One guy, obviously having some degree of manners, asked his young daughter to come sit on his knee to let other people sit down and he didn't half get a mouth full from his wife. "No it's her seat! they can stand up, why should she move" etc etc.
Yep, that`s the downside of the busses [or rather the inconsiderate so & so`s who are sometimes passengers!]
I find that most of the busses are also nearly full when they arrive at the GF having stopped at some other resorts en-route. For this reason I nowadays tend to drive to the parks as it also saves a fair bit of time.
