    I have heard that the Minnie Van service only works for Americans because you need an American phone number. Do you have any information about this? I'm Canadian and want to know if there are ways I could use this. Thanks!

    Welcome back, Kerrie, from a fellow Canadian and Disney enthusiast!

    Disney’s MINNIE VAN™ service caught my attention right away with the first official Disney Parks Blog post last summer. We recently used the service every day, to and from the Disney Theme Parks for two glorious weeks as Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village, what a vacation that was!

    The service is currently available at select Disney Deluxe Resort hotels and Villas and offered through the Lyft mobile application (subject to change), which I downloaded from home with ease. Upon my arrival at my Disney Deluxe Villas Resort, I saw a prompt for MINNIE VAN™ service on My Disney Experience mobile app. I asked the Cast Member at Lobby Concierge for assistance, who then asked for my cell phone number (my data roaming had to be activated). Soon after, the option to select a MINNIE VAN™ vehicle magically appeared in the list of available vehicles. In order to arrange for pick-up, I had to place my order outside my Disney Resort hotel Front Lobby, or just outside the Theme Park gates near the Resort hotel Bus Stops. Disney Resort Guest WiFi worked well, but I did use my data plan because I received confirmation texts from Lyft for my records. As this service is steadily expanding, I invite you to contact our MINNIE VAN™team at (407) 828-3500 for any further questions. 

    We hope you enjoy your MINNIE VAN™rides and our Spring Festivities Resort-wide!
