    Can we use resort shuttles to ride from the parks to the resorts for dining reservations and then back to the same park? We're staying off-site this trip and would like to try some of the dining options at a couple of the hotels during the day.

    Hi, Lisa!

    You can definitely take advantage of the complimentary transportation between the parks and hotels in order to visit some of the amazing restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels.  In addition to bus transportation, some of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels also utilize water transportation and the monorail.

    Another transportation option for you would be the Minnie Van service.  Minnie Van provides quick and convenient on-demand transportation anywhere on Walt Disney World property.  You can request and pay for a Minnie Van through the Lyft app.  I love chatting with the friendly Disney Cast Members who drive the Minnie Vans, and I also love riding in those adorable polka dotted vehicles!
    My mouth is watering just thinking about all of the amazing dining options that the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels have to offer!  One of my favorite restaurants is 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  The 'Ohana Bread Pudding a la mode is heavenly!  Restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort tend to be very busy, including those at the resort hotels, so be sure to visit the Walt Disney World Resort website to make dining reservations.  Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    Have a magical day!
