    If we use Lyft for early morning ride to HS. Do we just use Lyft app or do we need code some have said we need from bell service? Pros/Cons of buses that early 6:30am or so for early morning trip toy story.

    Hello again, Nicole! This is another great question and gives me a chance to talk about my favorite mode of Disney transportation - the Minnie Van. Disney's Minnie Van Service is such a welcome addition to the entire fleet of Disney transportation and it is also the most adorable! My daughters ask, no, beg every visit for us to use our Lyft app and call for a Minnie Van. They really do not have to twist my arm too hard because they make our travel across the Resort so easy. The Cast Members driving them are quite magical, too. They always have the best Disney music queued up for the trip and usually have lots of fun Disney stories (and sometimes trivia!) to share with us.

    Nicole, no special code is needed now to use Minnie Van Service. Simply download the Lyft app onto your mobile phone. When Walt Disney World Resort destinations are plugged into the Pick-Up and Drop Off locations, Minnie Van Service will be added into your list of available vehicle types. Just swipe across the listing of vehicles to the More section. That's where you'll find your polka-dotted beauty!

    I do highly recommend using Minnie Van Service for early morning plans at Walt Disney World Resort. This past November, we were hoping to make it to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park as early as possible, so we called for a ride instead of taking the bus. We were headed to the park well before the first bus appeared at our resort. Getting this really early head start helped us be the very first guests on Avatar Flight of Passage that day! Hopefully, it will help you say a quick "hey howdy hey" to Slinky in Woody's backyard!

    Thanks again for bringing your great questions to us! Let us know if you have any others!
