Disney announced on June 1, 2018, that the Minnie Van Lyft service is now open to all guests at Walt Disney World Resort!
Getting around on property on at Disney World Resort can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to say the least. The monorail is the favorite way to travel for many, but unfortunately it only goes to three resorts, two theme parks, and the Transportation and Ticket Center. If you aren’t traveling to any of those places you will need to take another form of transportation like the buses.
The buses to and from the resorts and parks often fill up quickly. The ferry boats and water taxis are another great way to travel, but may not run if the Florida weather isn’t cooperating. Enter the Minnie Van Lyft service! This is a great new option for guests who want to get around property quickly and in perfect Disney style!
Minnie Van Service
Although these new vehicles are called Minnie Vans, they are actually SUV’s! Disney is using the Chevy Traverse for this Lyft service. The Chevy Traverse is a roomy vehicle, able to accommodate up to 6 guests, and comes equipped with two car seats for your little Mickey’s and Minnie’s. Some vehicles can also accommodate guests with motorized vehicles, electric conveyance vehicles or ECV’s, and standard wheelchairs. Please note: Requesting these vehicles may result in additional wait time.
They are decked out with bright red paint and white polka dots, reminiscent of Minnie’s beautiful signature red dress. Minnie’s silhouette complete with her signature bow is painted on both the driver’s and front passenger’s side doors and also on the roof! Each vehicle is driven by a friendly Disney Cast Member who will take you safely, and in style to your destination!
How To Request a Minnie Van
If this transportation option seems right for you, follow these simple steps:
- Simply download the Lyft mobile app, open it anywhere within Walt Disney World Resort.
- Confirm your pick up location.
- Enter your Walt Disney World destination and tap “Request.”
- The Lyft app provides a map which tracks the vehicle while it travels to your location along with a vehicle number so you can verify the vehicle is yours!
The cost for each ride is $25, per vehicle, and you pay for your ride right through the Lyft mobile app! The Minnie Van Lyft Service is available between 6:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. daily (hours are subject to change).
