    We will need to use the Minnie Van to get from AKL to Whispering Canyon for breakfast. How many days in advance do we need to make our Minnie Van res, and how do we make that res?

    Hi Jeanie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so happy to hear you’re thinking about using a Minnie Van on your upcoming trip; they are such a charming way to travel around Walt Disney World Resort.

    The Minnie Van service works just like a taxi service. Simply ask a Cast Member at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge to help you; you will install the Lyft app on your phone, and the Cast Member will provide a special code so you can link it to your My Disney Experience account. Once that’s done, you’ll have a special option in your Lyft app for Minnie Van service, and you’ll be able to use the service throughout your stay. The Minnie Van will pick you up and drop you off right in front of your destination, making it a super convenient way to travel, and oh so adorable! My fun tip about Minnie Vans is that their stereo system is installed with theme park music, so you can ask your Cast Member driver to play your favorite! Jeanie, as of right now, Minnie Van service is in pilot mode, meaning the fleet of vehicles is limited, so you may want to build in some extra time to hail the Minnie Van to be sure you’re not running late for your reservation. I would also make sure you have the app installed and set up well before the time you’re planning to depart so you don’t have to worry about technical issues.

    Have an absolute blast at Whispering Canyon Cafe and don’t forget to ask for ketchup!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
