    For the Minnie Van Service to ride to different Disney parks, do you need to book it ahead of time? I read that there’s car seats in them, would it accommodate a 10 months old baby and 4 year old? Also is the pricing for the ride expensive?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, William. We're glad to see you again!

     Disney's Minnie Van Service is surely the cutest and most convenient way to travel around the Walt Disney World Resort. You do not need to book this transportation service ahead of time. When you're ready to go, simply request a Minnie Van through the Lyft app. I've never waited more than just a few minutes for a Minnie Van to arrive! Each vehicle is equipped with two Graco 4Ever 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seats, which are versatile enough to accommodate babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Pricing is based on the distance you're traveling between your pick-up location and destination. Before you commit to a ride, you'll see the total cost listed on the Lyft app. I've usually paid $20-$30 for a single trip in a Minnie Van.

     Do keep in mind that complimentary bus transportation is available to and from the theme parks and Disney Springs. My family usually requests a Minnie Van when we are traveling somewhere we can't easily access by bus, but otherwise, we rely on the complimentary transportation. We've found it to be reliable, safe, and convenient. It's just one of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel!

     Be sure to check out the Preschool Parents' Guide prior to your arrival. It's got lots of information and tips about traveling with little ones!

     I hope this was helpful, William. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
