    We will be staying at the Grand Floridian and have a 9:05 AM Fast Pass for Na'vi River Journey in Animal Kingdom. Would it be prudent to use LYFT. I am concerned that the bus service may make several stops after our hotel and it may take a long time?

    Hey Maria, thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    I think you are going to love staying at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It is a beautiful resort and it's so close to Magic Kingdom Park. It's a great place to be. I think you'll be happy to know that the buses from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will not make any other stops before arriving at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. The Disney Bus Service starts running 45 minutes prior to each park opening. This will give you plenty of time to make it to your first FastPass+ selection in the morning. Another option to consider is using Disney's Minnie Van Service. This is a personal ride service that is used within the Lyft mobile app. The Minnie Van Service starts at 6:30 am each day and will take you straight to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park as well. To request a Minnie Van, simply open the Lyft app and select your Walt Disney World destination. Then, confirm your pick-up location and select "Minnie Van Service". You'll probably need to swipe through the vehicles until you come to the Minnie Van option. Once you've selected a Minnie Van, the app will display a map and will track the vehicle. Prices are based on the distance to your destination. I've used the Minnie Van service several times while at Walt Disney World and I am always pleased. The cars are so cute and the drivers are always so friendly. This would be a great option if you aren't interested in using the buses. 

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
