    We would like to get from Port Orleans French Quarter to the Polynesian to do a 7:00 am fishing excursion. What is the best way to get there. The earliest park (epcot) opens at 8am. Would a Minnie Van be an option? Would the pick us up right at 6:30?

    Hi Philip!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    This is a great question. The Disney Minnie Van Service provides the most magical way of making your way around Walt Disney World Resort, especially if you have early reservations for an event, as they operate daily between 6.30am-12.30am.  You can make your reservations by downloading the Lyft app on your smartphone.  You can make a dummy booking, without confirming it, or making any payment.  So from your home, before you leave for Walt Disney World Resort, you can see where the Minnie Vans operate to/from.  Enter your Pickup point as Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, and your Drop-off as Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  Tap 'Done', then tap 'Select Minnie Van'.  You can then see from which locations within Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter the Minnie Vans can pick you up.  You'll also see the cost of using this service - but don't worry, the booking will not be confirmed until you have entered your payment details.   You can also order regular Lyft vehicles by using the same app.

    I love seeing the Minnie Vans driving around the Resort - they are so distinctive, and are definitely a reliable, way to start your day!  They can accommodate up to 6 Guests, and can provide 2 child seats if required.  This is a great choice of transport if you are heading to an event with a specified starting time, such as your fishing excursion at 7.00am. 

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