    We are arriving late on our check in day and are planning on going straight to animal kingdom from check in. Are the "mini vans" available at all Disney hotels?

    Hi Julianne,

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I can totally appreciate wanting to go straight away to the theme parks on arrival. On many of my Disney vacations, my bags barely touch the resort before I'm off to the parks for a FastPass+ attraction.

    The new Minnie Van service is such a convenient, comfortable, and fun way to get around Walt Disney World Resort. Since its launch, the service is proving really popular with Guests and is being expanded.

    As of this writing, the Minne Van service is available for guests staying at Deluxe Resort Hotels, select Moderate Resorts ( Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort), select Deluxe Villas (Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and  Disney's Old Key West Resort), and is now expanded to select Value Resorts ( Disney’s Pop Century Resort).

    Julianne, you don't mention which specific resort where you're you're checking in, but if you are staying at a resort where the Minnie Van service is offered, you should receive information about Minnie Van. You can also check with your front desk at your resort.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
