Disney buses collide at Contemporary Resort

As if things couldn't get worse for Disney transportation, there is are reports from WESH-TV and The Orlando Sentinel that two WDW buses collided this afternoon in front of the Contemporary Resort. According to news reports, about 50 guests were on the two buses when one rear-ended the other on World Drive at around 2:40 p.m.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson, one bus had stopped as traffic was merging at a point where World Drive narrows from three lanes to two lanes. The second bus did not stop in time and struck the stopped bus.

According to the FHP, about a dozen people suffered minor injuries and were transported to local hospitals.

"There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our guests and cast members. We are focused on the well being of those involved and are working closely with law enforcement," said a Disney spokesperson in a statement.

This latest incident comes less than two weeks after the fatal monorail accident in which a monorail pilot was killed.
