I was thinking about this the other day during my morning commute to New York City. In fact, my morning commute is usually the time I find myself daydreaming about Disney the most. (Probably because that's the one place I'd always rather be!)

symbols are buses on the route.
Instead of relying on timetables, I can view the GPS location of the buses on that particular route. Therefore, I don't leave my house in the morning before I can see my bus on approach. In fact, I've timed it out perfectly. On a rainy day, or a cold snowy morning, I don't leave my house a minute before I have to.
How can this be applied to Disney? Imagine the possibilities!
Imagine you're staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and you have dinner reservations at the Hollywood Brown Derby in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Your little one just woke up from a much-needed nap and is dragging a bit. You are rushing to get ready and you check your app. You see the next Hollywood Studios bus about fifteen minutes away, so you can take your time to get ready before running to the bus stop.
So Disney Imagineers, if somehow, someday, you read this, please come up with a system like this for Walt Disney World! Guests would be eternally grateful!
