    Can you schedule a Minnie Van ride ahead of time? If not, are they generally available at 6:30 or 7am? I would like to use a Minnie Van to get from Pop Century Resort to Animal Kingdom Lodge for a breakfast reservation at Boma - Flavors of Africa!

    Hi, Emily!  Welcome back to planDisney!

    The Disney Minnie Van Service is a great option for traveling from one Disney Resorts Collection Hotel to another.  These adorable red and white polka dot vehicles can be requested through the Lyft app, and they whisk Guests away to any destination on Walt Disney World Resort property between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. daily.  Although you cannot schedule your Minnie Van ride in advance, in my experience, the Minnie Van vehicles are plentiful and you never have to wait very long for your ride to arrive.  The Disney Minnie Van Service is perfect when you need to travel from your resort hotel to another resort hotel for an early morning breakfast reservation.

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be enjoying breakfast at Boma - Flavors of Africa.  In my opinion, this is one of the best places for breakfast in all of Walt Disney World Resort.  The cinnamon-raisin bread pudding on Boma's breakfast buffet is heavenly!  Boma is a great place to branch out and try some new African-inspired dishes, while still savoring all of your favorite traditional breakfast foods.  Also, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a gorgeous resort.  If you have time after your meal at Boma, you should definitely take a walk to admire the resort's lobby and grounds.  You might even spot some animal friends roaming the savannas.

    Emily, if you have any additional questions as you're getting ready for your trip, please don't hesitate to ask.  Wishing you a happy holiday season and a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
