It’s now been a couple months and the initial reaction for Disney’s newest guest transportation service has been a smash hit! Initially starting only at guests staying in Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club and Boardwalk Resorts, the Minnie Van service then expanded to the Animal Kingdom and Wilderness Lodges too. But what about the Magic Kingdom resorts?? You’re in luck as I’m happy to tell you that Minnie Vans are now available at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa too!
If you are new to the Minnie Van Service it’s very simple. To offer a competitive ride-sharing service to transport guests around property, Disney has partnered up with Lyft and offers transportation in the form of a car decorated like Minnie Mouse. Rides are a $20 flat rate, they will bring you anywhere on property you want to go, and there are even some additional perks as well.
To get started with a Minnie Van is really simple, first download the Lyft app on your mobile device. Then all you have to do is go to the front desk of any of the participating Disney resorts and tell them you want to use the service. You give them your mobile number and they will activate your number for use with the Minnie Vans. Go into your Lyft app and select the Minnie Van ride and you’re good to go!
I personally loved the service when I tried it recently, we had a great experience and our driver was super knowledgable about WDW and was available to answer any questions we had too. It’s only a matter of time before Disney extends this service out to the rest of the WDW resorts, even to the Moderates and Value ones. I think you should definitely give it a try and then let me know what you think! 😉
