    Hi, just booked Boardwalk Inn, for getting around Disney can as a UK resident use the Minnie Vans service as our phones registered in the UK and understand that the platform is Lyft which may not work for non US phones? Many thanks Jackie

    Hello Jackie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Minnie Van Service is a magical way to navigate Walt Disney World Resort. During my last visit, I was also concerned that I would not be able to book a trip due to my having a Canadian smartphone.

    The good news is that I was able to download the Lyft App in Canada before my visit and book a trip while at Walt Disney World Resort. If the Lyft App works where you currently live (try downloading it) and you arrange your payment options and setup for other locations, you should be able to do so when you stay at Disney's Boardwalk Inn.

    Be advised that you are charged in US currency and that you are subject to any currency exchange fees that your payment options apply.

    I can currently use the Lyft App at home in Canada to book a Minnie Van between 2 locations at Walt Disney World Resort. I'm always sure to not officially book the Minnie Van, however, as I'm sure that would be a waste of time and money while I'm sitting in my house in Canada.

    Be sure to plan to spend some time on Disney's Boardwalk promenade during your visit. It is an underappreciated experience at Walt Disney World Resort (in my opinion) and one of the major features for staying at Disney's Boardwalk Inn.

    If you are traveling with kids, be sure to book Advanced Dining Reservations for the Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno. You'll get to meet Flynn Ryder, Rapuznel, Ariel and Prince Eric and dine on a delicious breakfast a few steps from your Resort Hotel Room.

    Have a Magical Visit!
