Where’s the Best Place for Using the Minnie Van Service?
If you could only use the Minnie Van Service once your whole trip, we recommend taking it to Magic Kingdom. Because the Minnie Vans can drop you off near the special Cast Entry before the bus loop opens, and the Lyft drop off is IN the Bus Loop when that is open, you are SO CLOSE to the Magic Kingdom entry that it’s incredibly quick to get to the park versus parking a car at transportation and ticketing. If you plan to Rope Drop, this is a sure way to get there early and quickly.
Hot Tips for Using the Minnie Vans at Disney World
Our Minnie Van Driver gave us some hot tips for using the Minnie Vans at Disney World, which may be helpful in your Walt Disney World travel planning.
Long Waits in the Lyft App
If you try to book a Minnie Van in the Lyft App and see a long wait, scroll to the bottom and look for an Accessible option. Anyone can use the Accessible vehicle but know that it only seats 5 and includes 1 car seat vs. the standard Minnie Van, which seats 6 and offers 2 car seats.
Rope Drop at Magic Kingdom
If you plan to ride drop Magic Kingdom, know that the bus loop for the park only opens 1 hour before park entry. If you feel the need to line up prior to that, the Minnie Vans can drop you off near the special Cast Entry so you can walk over and get in line a bit earlier.
Beach Club and EPCOT Back Entry Drop Off
If you have a return time for Ratatouille or dining on that side of the World Showcase in EPCOT, the Minnie Vans at Disney World can drop you off and pick you up at the Beach Club and you can walk over for a closer back entry into EPCOT, which is closer than getting dropped at the main entrance.
For Concierge and Club level guests at Walt Disney World Resorts, the Minnie Vans at Disney World can schedule airport transportation through the concierge desk.
Bypass the Resort Parking Gate
When you use the Minnie Vans at Disney World, you can get to your resort a few minutes fast as the Minnie Vans get to bypass the resort parking check-in gate, which can sometimes get backed up.
