    My Family of six is going to Disney June 17th - 28th. We have dinner reservation at the Boathouse on the 18th at 8pm. We are staying at the Boardwalk Villas and would like advice on using the Magical or the Mini Vans to Disney Springs.

    Welcome Home Jim!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You have picked an excellent place for dinner. I would consider The BOATHOUSE one of the premier waterfront dining locations in Orlando. The food is delicious, and the Disney Springs atmosphere is fantastic.

    The Minnie Van Service is a super cute and super convenient way to get around Walt Disney World Resort. The polka-dotted beauties will get you from Disney's BoardWalk Villas to Disney Springs quicker than you can say Mishka Mushka Mickey Mouse! They are available from 6:30 am to 12:30 am daily, and you request a ride via the Lyft app on your smartphone. If you need an accessible car, please call a Minnie Van Service Specialist at (407) 828-3500 45-60 minutes before your ride. If you are going to dinner with littles, up to three complimentary car seats per vehicle are available.

    After dinner, jump in a Vintage Amphicar and take a water tour of Disney Springs. Your cool car transforms into a boat as you take in the sights from a completely different perspective. Reservations are made in person at the dock podium or inside The BOATHOUSE BOATIQUE.

    Jim, I hope this answered your question. Please don’t hesitate to come back with any additional ones!
