    When we stay at the Grand Floridian this April, for visiting Animal Kingdom, we would like to try the Minnie van service, rather than using the bus. When can we reserve the service and are they always available if we book that morning? Thanks!

    Hello Brittany!

    I love riding in the Minnie Vans! I feel as giddy as a little girl when I see those red vans with white polka dots. The level of service from cast members is magical.

    You can join in on the fun and arrange your own private Disney vehicle right from your smartphone. Minnie Van service will pick up and drop off Guests anywhere at the Walt Disney World Resort and will operate from 6:30 a.m.-12:30 a.m. daily. Eligible resort Guests will be able to request and pay for rides through a mobile app (Lyft) after enrolling with a Minnie Van service Cast Member at their resort.

    There are a limited number of Minnie Vans and sometimes they can get booked up during busy travel times, so I suggest calling as early as possible when you know you'd like to reserve one. I felt like a Disney VIP when I rode in the Minnie Van!

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon. Have a magical vacation!
