    My family and I are traveling to Disney World this December. We are looking to have breakfast at Cape May Cafe but we are staying at Saratoga Springs. I was looking into the Minnie Vans. Are they always available? I could not find anything on the Lyft app.


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Oh, the breakfast buffet at Cape May Cafe! It is the middle of the afternoon at the time of this writing, but now I am craving those salted caramel beach buns! 

    The Disney Minnie Van Service Connected by Lyft is available for those early morning commutes from one Disney Resort hotel to another. They operate from 6:30 am to 12:30 am, daily. You should not have any problem at all, once you arrive. I find them to be an amazingly convenient way to get around the Walt Disney World property, and when you have a tight schedule, they are well worth the added expense. 

    BONUS TIP #1
    The drive should take about 13 minutes on a good day but be sure to request your Minnie Van in advance of that, as they are particularly popular with guests trying to get to those earlier morning breakfast reservations. Also, assume the drive at that time of day will likely be more like a 20-minute trek.

    BONUS TIP #2
    If you run into an issue, the fastest alternative way to get from Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa to Disney's Beach Club Resort is to grab a standard Lyft. But if you have to use Disney Transportation, you can boat or walk to the bus depot at Disney Springs, and then catch a bus to the Beach Club. 

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
