    Can I book a Minnie van the night before

    Welcome to planDisney, Carol! Thanks so much for swinging by to ask a question about one of the most magical modes of transportation at Walt Disney World Resort: Minnie Van Service. This whimsical personal ride service is a great way to arrive at your destination in style, so let's chat about when and how you can book it.

    At this time, Minnie Vans cannot be booked in advance and are reserved in real-time when you request one. To book a Minnie Van, open up your Lyft app, enter your destination, and confirm your current location. A Minnie Van may not be the default vehicle type displayed in your app, so scroll until you see the picture of the polka-dotted vehicle and tap "Select Minnie Van". The app will display a map tracking your vehicle en route, which is being driven by a friendly Disney Cast Member who is super knowledgeable about all the places you might want to visit at The Most Magical Place On Earth!

    Minnie Vans are great for getting wherever you need to go on Walt Disney World Resort property, but there are two circumstances where I think a Minnie Van is the best choice for transportation. The first is when you're arriving at or leaving Magic Kingdom Park since Minnie Vans can pull right up to the bus loop to pick you up or drop you off, and the second is when you're traveling between two Disney Resorts Collection Hotels. This would typically involve a transfer at a Theme Park if you're using complimentary transportation, so it's a great way to get to a dining reservation quickly and save some time!

    Have a magical day, Carol!
