WDW Artifacts - Bus Transportation Routes

October 1, 2011 marked the 40th Anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort. This week at the Veranda we are celebrating the occasion by exhibiting items from our WDW collection (one new item per day).

Today we conclude the series with this curious artifact -- an early list of WDW bus routes:

WDW Bus Routes front - Version 2

WDW Bus Routes front - Version 3
WDW Bus Routes back

What could be simpler? ;-]

For better or worse, bus transportation has played a significant role in the history of the resort.

Artifacts like these remind us of the scope and scale of the resort, and also point out historical oddities (such as the one-time prominence of the Transportation and Ticket Center).

Thanks for joining us in this week-long look back at some pieces of WDW history.

These cards are some of my favorite things to collect, and I love how they changed ever so slightly through the years! Thanks for sharing!

Ryan - You're welcome.
It might be interesting to pool our resources to create an online collection of these...
