Disney World has a free transportation network of buses, boats and the monorail, you rarely need to use a Minnie Van to get around.
Sometimes, you want a direct, private ride.
The Minnie Vans are able to transport guests anywhere on the Walt Disney World property and to and from the Orlando International Airport. One of the biggest gripes about Disney transportation is the amount of time it takes, especially travelling from one resort hotel to another.
You can request a Minnie Van in App
There are many people who are distrustful of these ride-sharing services. They have their pros and cons. But Minnie Vans are somewhere nice between a Taxis and a Limo. They are designated drivers, vetted by Disney, and are considered “travelling in style” type of service.
Minnie Vans can be hailed/requested like a Taxis, and yet you have the feeling of being in control like you would by using Lyft/Uber. Especially when it comes to getting price quotes. I dislike not knowing!
You can see an estimate of your trip cost prior to requesting the Minnie Van by using the Lyft app.
Minnie Van now goes to MCO
Whereas Minnie Van transportation on the property can be arranged through the Lyft app, Minnie Vans airport shuttle service reservations must be made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY. The service is available to guests staying at any Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Hours of operation for the shuttle service is for flight arrivals 7 a.m.-10 p.m. for flight departures 9 a.m.-12 a.m. Each Minnie Van can hold up to six passengers and eight medium-sized suitcases. Up to three complimentary car seats can also be provided and ADA accessible vehicles are available.
The cost per vehicle is $150.
And to Port Canaveral:
Guests taking a Disney Cruise now have the option to use a Minnie Van for transfer services to and from Port Canaveral. The cost is a $240 each way (plus tip) and can be set up by calling Disney Cruise Line Embarkation Services at 1-800-395-9374.
Minnie Vans have complimentary car seats
This is one of the things that make Minnie Vans stand out. All Minnie Vans are equipped with 2 versatile car seats. These convertible seats can operate as both forward facing or rear facing traditional seats or they can also be used as a booster seat (both with and without the back), meaning, as Disney says “even the tiniest of passengers can travel in style.”
Easiest Way To Magic Kingdom:
Be strategic with your Minnie Van use. Minnie Vans are best used when they will save you a significant amount of time over Disney transportation.
Minnie Vans are handi-friendly:
Guests needing an Accessible Minnie Van can request one by calling (407) 828-3500. Requests for accessible Minnie Vans can be made 45-60 minutes ahead of time however, because of the limited number available, the wait for the accessible vans may be a bit longer.
