    How does one pay for a Minnie Van? Can a Disney Gift card be used? Thank you.

    Hi Jill!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You will love using the Disney Minnie Van Service as an efficient way to travel around Walt Disney World Resort, and it is especially useful if you have an early dining reservation, or you just want a relaxing mode of transport from your Disney Resort Hotel to anywhere else - any of the theme parks, other Disney Resort Hotels if you have a dining reservation, and Disney Springs.  These distinctive vehicles are driven by knowledgeable and friendly Disney Cast Members and can accommodate up to 6 Guests, and can provide 2 child car seats if required.

    I would recommend using Disney's Minnie Van Service as a magical transport option!  You can order them by downloading and using the Lyft app on your smartphone, where you will see the cost of using this service, and make your payment.  You will need to link a credit or debit card to the app to make payment, so Disney Gift Cards cannot be used as a payment method at this time.  

    You can also order regular Lyft vehicles by using this app, but please note that an advantage that the Minnie Vans have is that they are the only cars permitted to take you to the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park. All other cars have to drop you at the Transportation and Ticket Center, from where you will need to take the ferryboat or monorail to the park entrance.  All cars can take you to the entrances of Disney's Hollywood Studios, EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and both water parks.

    Please come back and visit us again if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates.
