    For an 8:15am breakfast at Be Our Guest, how much time should I budget for travel, security, and walking to the restaurant if we plan on using the Minnie Van service rather than the resort bus? Details are much appreciated!

    Welcome back, Ashley! 

    I hope you're having a magical time planning your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation.

    Minnie Van Service is amazing! I had the opportunity to experience first-hand how this operation is run this past weekend while visiting my "happy place." I was super impressed. Getting to ride along in very comfortable accommodations while being driven by a Disney Cast Member, really made transportation a part of our vacation. Here's a fun tip: phone chargers are at the ready for guests needing some "juice" between destinations. 

    First, I'd love to know where you are staying, Ashley. This information will better allow me to estimate your travel time - I see in previous questions you mention Copper Creek and BoardWalk Villas. I found in my experiences this weekend you can expect to wait about 10-15 minutes for your Minnie Van to arrive once you've requested a pick-up from the Lyft app - they currently offer pick-ups from all Deluxe level Resort hotels, so you're good-to-go there. 

    Next, you'll be dropped off at Magic Kingdom Park's bus depot, which is awesome because it's as close to the entrance as you can get! I would allow about 15 minutes from the drop-off point to the check-in podium at Be Our Guest Restaurant. Road time will vary on your Resort location: Copper Creek 5-8 mins, BoardWalk Villas 15-20 mins. 

    Lastly, when you arrive at your Resort hotel, have a Cast Member at the outside Bell Service Podium get the Lyft App on your smartphone set-up so the Minnie Van option will come up on your phone. Otherwise, you'll end up requesting a traditional Lyft Service pick-up.... I might know how easy that mistake can be ;) 

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
