    I do not have a smart phone and do not take my tablet to the parks. We will be staying at animal kingdom lodge and would like to use the Minnie van service. I would like to use my Disney visa. Do I have to have left app? Sandra, n.w. indiana

    Hi Kendra,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's exciting to hear you are getting ready for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a beautiful resort and I always enjoy my stays there, and I am so happy to hear you'll be experiencing that Resort.

    The Minnie Van Service is such a fun, convenient, and comfortable way to get around Walt Disney World. I often refer to it as "riding the dots in style." The Minnie Van Cast Member drivers are so friendly and helpful. You feel like you have a personal tour guide whisking you away from one magical location to the next. I've enjoyed using the Minnie Van Service on a few of my recent trips.

    Kendra, the Minnie Van Service works using the Lyft app on your mobile phone. For your question, I reached out to the Minnie Van Service Team directly to ask if there are options for you as a Guest without a mobile phone. While I wish I had a few better ideas for you as a Guest without a mobile phone, they confirmed for me that the Lyft app is required.

    There's a lot of magic happening all around Walt Disney World, and you have a great vacation awaiting you.

    Enjoy your Disney!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
