    Hi - hoping to use a Minnie Van to travel from Port Orleans Riverside to Magic Kingdom, in time for EEMH starting at 7am (in October). What time will Minnie vans start running and is it possible to book one in advance? Are many available so early? Thanks

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Susan!

    ChEARS!  I am thrilled that you will be rocking the dots and using Disney's Minnie Van service during your upcoming stay!  This is my favorite way to quickly go between the theme parks and resorts, especially to maximize your time in the parks with Park Hopper tickets and extra, Extra Magic Hours.

    Minnie Van service operates between 6:30 AM and 12:30 AM daily.  Hours of operation are subject to change, but based on the current operating hours you should be able to schedule a ride from Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside to Magic Kingdom in plenty of time to arrive for the 7:00 AM extra, Extra Magic Hours in October.

    You can book your Minnie Van reservation one week in advance of the date you are requesting the ride.  To request a ride, use the Lyft app on your personal device.  Select your pick up and drop off locations in the app.  Once the vehicle options are displayed, scroll all the way to the right and Minnie Van service will be listed under "more."  Before you push the "Request Minnie Van" button, be sure to change the date you are requesting the ride by clicking on the "schedule" link right above the request button.  If you book your ride in advance, you should have no issue arranging a ride in the morning.

    Drive by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again if you have any more questions about your magical getaway this fall!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
