Sorry for my editing of the post, while you were asking more questions.
I have ridden the direct bus 4 times - every time the 25 passenger bus - fairly new, comfortable, good A/C - but no snacks. Our daughter has ridden the bigger direct bus - but I never saw them handing out any free beverages - (unlike the ADO Platino service from downtown Cancun). No movies on the 25 person bus. I don't know about the big bus.
Sandwiches, tortas, salbutes, panuchos, cochinita pibil, etc and a full selection of beverages can be bought at the plaza on the stop midway through the viaje.
The hat? It's a festive gag that one our local restaurants put onto birthday celebrants. If you want the song and the free birthday dessert, (or not), ya gotta wear the hat. Good steaks, good moles, good pozole, so, it's worth wearing the hat.
Sorry you had a tough time with the Yolisto administrator. There are new owners of the site, and the new administrator (a very active long-term poster) is exploring her new powers.
Safe travels for your wife.
