    I want to know what hotels to stay at that we can use the "minnie" vans. Do the hotels have mini fridge? And, are we allowed to take food/drinks into the park???

    Hi Tammy! Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and for asking me these great questions!

    You will love the new Minnie Van Service! Aside from being super cute, they are very convenient! Currently, the Minnie Van Service is picking up from each of the Walt Disney World Deluxe Resort Hotels as well as Disney's Old Key West Resort and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. The drivers are Disney Cast Members and you can use your Lyft app to request the service.

    Friend and fellow Disney Parks Moms Panelist, Jacqueline P., used the Minnie Van Service several times during one of her recent vacations and was very pleased. The Minnie Van pickup/drop off locations are conveniently located near the theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs. Upon request, the Minnie Vans also accommodate children needing car seats as well as pets. Quick tip: when Jackie ordered the Minnie Van from her Resort hotel, she was always instructed to use the Lyft app outside the main lobby.

    I'm so excited about everything the Minnie Van Service offers and can't wait to take a ride during my next visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    I have great news regarding your other questions! There are mini refrigerators in all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels and you are allowed to bring snacks and drinks into all of the theme parks. Disney does request that you refrain from bringing in glass containers. We typically carry water bottles with us and sometimes have a small high protein snack. However, there is nothing like a snack at Walt Disney World Resort. As I type, I am savoring a chocolate covered caramel from Karamell-Kuche in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot. Yummy!

    Thanks again for your questions and please let me know if you need any further information to help make your planning or vacation magical!
