    We are staying offsite in Bonnet Creek, and have early magic hours for MK starting at 7:45. We are renting a car, but I thought for the early time, it might make sense to do the Minnie Van. Does my 6 yr need a booster? I have 2 other kids (5,3).

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Grant! Your Mouseketeers are at the perfect age to enjoy The Most Magical Place on Earth, and I can tell you are busy planning a trip that is "Practically Perfect in every way!"

    Last fall, Walt Disney World Resort expanded its popular Minnie Van Service to the Bonnet Creek Resorts including the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek, Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort, and Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek.  I've been lucky to use this service a few times myself, and I love that the Minnie Vans provide convenient transportation in the comfort of a red and white polka dotted six passenger Chevy Traverse. The Minnie Van drivers are some of the friendliest Cast Members I've ever encountered, and they strive to make your theme park experience as stress-free as possible. Each Minnie Van comes equipped with two car seats, so that "even the tiniest of passengers can travel in style." Florida law states that children over the age of six are not required to ride in a booster seat. 

    My suggestion would be to download the Lyft app before your trip (sometimes I'll even get a Lyft discount code sent to me a week or two beforehand). Since many Guests will be trying to get to Magic Kingdom Park for Early Morning Magic, be prepared to request a Minnie Van as soon as the service starts operating at 6:30 AM. One of the best perks to using the Minnie Vans when going to the Magic Kingdom is that they can drop you off in the same location as the resort buses, right in front of the Park, as opposed to having to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center.

    Have a magical trip, Grant, and please tell my pal, Mickey, that I said hi!
