    We are going to stay at Animal Kingdom Villas in and wanted to know if we can take a Minnie Van to the Beach Club in the morning before the parks open to meet our friends even though we won’t have a dining reservation? Will we be turned away at the gate?

    Hello, Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    Are you ready for some MAGICAL news?! I am very happy to inform you that you will be able to take a Minnie Van to Disney's Beach Club Resort to meet your friends. When you arrive at the resort gate, just let the Cast Member know why you are there. You should have NO problem at all! NOTE: Reserving a Minnie Van is very easy! Just use the Lyft app from your phone to request this service. The drivers are even Disney Cast Members! How cool is that?!

    Experiencing Walt Disney World with friends is the BEST! Meeting up before the park opens will give you additional time to plan your TIGGER-ific day in any of the Disney Parks!

    If you have other questions, please let us know! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
