I know they aren’t building a station on Disney property but they have mentioned they’d still like to build one as close to Disney as possible. Provided they do so, maybe Disney could hook their transportation system (e.g. Skyliner) into said station?

The original plan was a station at Disney Springs. My family almost always goes to Disney Springs for the first part of our trip, to fill the hours between arrival and our rooms being available. We drop our luggage with the concierge, then head over to the Springs. That's okay, but some hassle. If, on the other hand, there was a train directly to Disney Springs, and a luggage drop (with bell service handling the bag delivery to the hotel room), I'd much rather skip the hotel lobby until the room is actually ready.

boarding a train at the airport and taking it to a station somewhere near Disney/Universal and then again transfer your family and all of your luggage onto a different bus to get to your hotel,
what would you do?
Dedicated buses will bring you faster, cheaper (used to even be free), and a lot more conveniently with a stress-free one-seat ride. People will want to get to their hotel rooms as quickly as possible to start their vacations. I'm really not sure how well this is going to work.
