    We were looking into using Minnie Vans to go to and from the parks during our stay, however we would have a four and two year old, as well as a six month old. How would we go about the car seat situation when it normally only comes with two?

    Welcome to planDisney, Haley!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. I hope you're having an incredible time on your Walt Disney World adventure. Let's talk about traveling to the theme parks with your crew of Mouseketeers!

    You can request a Minnie Van™ through the Lyft app to travel within the Walt Disney World Resort during your vacation. All Minnie Vans™ are equipped with two child safety seats to accommodate families. Unfortunately, you would need to provide a car seat or booster for your third child, or request a second Minnie Van™. Carrying a large car seat into the theme parks isn't ideal or even possible in many situations, and I assume you want to ride together in the same Minnie Van™, so I have some ideas that might work for your situation.

    When my children were old enough to ride in a backless booster seat, we began traveling with inflatable booster seats. If you're already in Walt Disney World, consider having one delivered to your resort from Amazon or a local big box retailer like Target or Walmart. Our travel booster seat (which we still bring on vacation for our seven-year-old to use in ride-share vehicles) inflates in seconds and deflates to a size slim enough to fit in a backpack between uses. Depending on your comfort level and the height of your four-year-old, this might be an option for a third child safety seat.

    If you are already traveling with a booster seat for your four-year-old, another option is to use that in the Minnie Van™ and store it in a theme park locker. Lockers are located just inside the entrance of all four theme parks, and the jumbo size (17" x 22" x 26") at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT would likely be large enough to accommodate a small booster seat, especially one with a detachable back. Be sure to compare the dimensions of your booster with those of the standard lockers here.

    I hope this is helpful, Haley, and that you find something that works for your family. While Minnie Vans™ can be convenient (especially at park closing time or when moving between resorts), in most cases, using Walt Disney World Resort Transportation is the easiest way to travel with your little ones. You typically won't need to fold your stroller when riding the Disney Skyliner or monorail. You can roll right on! Thanks again for sending your question to us, and if there's anything planDisney can do to make future trips even more special, don't hesitate to reach out again.

    Wishing you a magical day,
