Disney theme parks have one of the best transportation set ups ever. You can ideally travel to Disney World in Orlando, never rent a car, and be able to see every inch of Disney Property easily with their constant rotation of buses connecting every park and every resort.
These buses are everywhere and make for a perfect canvas to bring Disney themed advertisements to the park goers, and since 2013 a Disney Infinity bus has been roaming the resort, looking awesome and spreading the word of everyone’s favorite magical Toys To Life game.
Here’s a quick visual history of the Infinibus!
The Original 1.0 Bus was a simple white wrap with the characters lined up in a row, showing off the wide option of franchises and characters at release. “Great Characters. Great Adventures.” was the featured tagline in the design and kept things simple and classic.

Other Disney Parks got a little taste of Infinity Bus advertisements, including Disneyland Paris that saw this long billboard type ad (in place of a full wrap).

When Disney Infinity 2.0 hit the shelves, the Infinity Bus was jazzed up with the new characters debuting on the platform. The initial static pose design was ditched for a more fun half action (Flying Baymax & Magic Carpet), half interactive (characters in the windows).

2.0 Also saw the introduction of a new universe, Marvel, so the bus design took the idea and ran with it, making one side “Disney Originals” and the other side “Marvel”. The opposite side of the bus featured action packed heroes like web slinging Spiderman and flying Ironman. The back of the bus featured the Guardians of the Galaxy crew.

With 3.0 and the introduction of Star Wars to the game, Disney Infinity stepped up their ad game and took it from action packed cast to a more focused epic hero feature. Blending together all the franchises for each side instead of splitting them up, the Hero, Jedi, Warrior / Bold,Wise, Cool taglines put the franchise in perspective perfectly.
