    Will a Minnie Van be able to drop you off at Hollywood Studios earlier than the time at which the parking lot opens? For Example.. 8:30am early entry, 7:30am parking lot open ...will the Minnie Van drop off as early as 6:30 or 7:00am??

    Hiya, Matthew! Thanks so much for making a return visit to planDisney with your excellent question. We're so pleased that you've decided to be our guest, and I'm here to help!

    I see that you've noticed the super-stylish red polka-dotted vehicles cruising around Walt Disney World Resort. There are of course the Minnie Vans, a uniquely Disney transportation option available for travel to destinations all around the resort and driven by possibly the nicest Cast Members ever. They are a nice option for larger groups and there are two options to choose from: 
    • a standard Minnie Van seats up to 6 Guests and is equipped with 2 car seats that can be installed if needed. 
    • an accessible Minnie Van, which can accommodate up to 5 Guests (1 in a car seat), plus two mobility devices. 
    Minnie Van service runs daily from 6:30 AM until 12:30 AM, although you should check upon arrival as hours are subject to change. Matthew, you will not be able to be dropped off at Disney's Hollywood Studios until one hour before the park opens. In the example you mentioned, that would mean the Minnie Van would be able to drop you off at 7:30 for an early theme park entry beginning at 8:30. 

    Minnie Van service is powered by Lyft, so make sure that you have the most up-to-date version of the app installed on your mobile device. When you open the app and enter your requested destination, a list of available vehicles will display. Minnie Van is typically located toward the bottom of the list, so make sure you scroll down. One tip I've learned is to make sure I put the word "Disney" in my destination, which seems to make the location more accurate. So, instead of "Animal Kingdom Lodge", type in "Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge" for the best results. 

    Well, Matthew, I hope you are getting excited for your Walt Disney World vacation--it's coming up so soon! Thanks again for visiting planDisney and please stop by anytime if we can help with other questions!
