    It does seem a shame, as that ride is part of the fun. I cannot fathom what happened or why Disney would cut that out. It is a very convenient service to get from the airport to the resort, something decent will need to replace it and cost effective too.
    While we only use the shuttle busses to go from the airport to the port and then from port back to airport, it does cause a lot of excitement to travel to the port from airport to start our Disney cruises. Watching the cartoons makes me feel like a kid again, even if I am 62 years old.

    I’m sure its due to cost. The UK and other countries are stopping International travel for a Year or longer. Disney announced the parks will be reservation only they next few years. Some hotels at WDW won’t be opening tbey said til traffic back to normal. It makes sense not to have it. I’m sure they did studies and I would bet a majority of those that took the bus were International guests or guest that spent less than those who rented cars.
