  13. Disney has received approximately 70 / 2019 Gillig Low Floor Buses, numbered from 5210 (19) up to 5279 (19). 5279, the highest numbered bus was manufactured in June 2019. This group is unique in that they are all wrapped for different characters. In this year one of their buses had a fire while running for the employee shuttle. I have been unable to determine what the exact bus number was or if it has been repaired or scrapped. I had the chance to ride the newly refurbished Green Monorail. It is far superior to the other non rebuilt one's. I have the feeling that the yellow one is next to be redone.
