New colors for Disney busses

I just read about it at and they do have a picture in the article. You can click on the thumbnail and it will bring up a larger picture.

PHOTO - New color scheme for the Disney Transport bus fleet

One thing's for sure - it's not totally horrible like those "skins" or whatever it was they were putting on the monorails. I don't mind this new look but I didn't mind the old one either.

There's also a second article with a little bit more info

I'm okay with the new color scheme!! Just as long as they do not change the voiceover that reminds you "to take small fries by the hand" (We're huge Toy Story fans )

I like it a lot. Very retro, but new at the same time.
