The Disney busses at WDW show their destinations in the front window like most any other, so you see busses marked MAGIC KINGDOM, EPCOT, POP CENTURY, etc etc. Some other ones aren't marked with destinations per se, but their purpose is pretty obvious -- things like VIP CAST MEMBER, TRAINING, etc.

The thing that's been piquing my curiosity to no end ever since getting here: some of the busses are marked JASMINE. Huh, what? It's not like Jasmine is riding around in them. I figured it was some kind of semi-secret tour bus, maybe Keys or Backstage Magic or something, but that doesn't make sense when you see JASMINE busses tooling around at 11pm.

Finally broke down and asked a cast member last night. JASMINE means that the bus is going out of service for any reason. Kind of figures, what with Disney wanting to keep up the illusion that everything is always magically perfect and nothing ever breaks or goes offline. =)

Mystery solved!

Now that the secret is out, they'll have to use something else. Maybe "Mechanicsville".

Heh. I heard a couple weeks ago that Disney refuses to let anyone be declared dead on premises--someone dies at the park, paramedics have to move the body outside the property line before making the call.

Naturally my next thought was, what would happen if someone was murdered at Disney?

My friend insists she refuses to write a Disney murder mystery. This never lasts. I'm curious how long she'll hold out.
