Fans immediately noticed the "2018" on the signboards outside the former Disaster! ride, which is being gutted to make way for Fast & Furious: Supercharged.

A better way to Uber at Disney World? Uber is changing the way that it matches drivers with riders at the Walt Disney World Resort. As explained in this story from the Orlando Sentinel, Uber will no longer assign passengers to their nearest driver when they hail a ride. Instead, Uber will break areas around popular pick-up locations into "zones" and assign passengers to the Uber driver who's been waiting in the zone the longest. Apparently, this is the system that Uber uses in other popular tourist destinations and should help cut down on traffic from Uber drivers cruising around, jostling for position with each other, trying to get into the best position to get a fare.
From a rider's perspective, though, nothing changes. You use the app to call a car, just like before. This simply is a backend change that affects how Uber assigns drivers to requests for a ride.
