    Hi. I am staying at Riviera Resort and would like to book a Minnie Van for my ride back to MCO (need car seat) for my return flight home. Can I book this in advance? Thanks

    Hiya Michael,

    Welcome back to planDisney! Of all of the Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotels, Disney’s Riviera Resort is my favorite. I love how peaceful and charming it is. I hope you are enjoying your stay there.

    Michael, as much as I love the Minnie Van Service, one of the downsides is that currently, you cannot use it to travel from Disney’s Riviera Resort (or any of the Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotels) to Orlando International Airport. The Minnie Van Service currently only provides services to and from locations within Walt Disney World Resort. To get to the airport, you must use rideshare services or Mears Connect Driven by Sunshine. Since you will need a car seat, I think your best bet is to use Mears Connect Driven by Sunshine. Not every rideshare has access to a car seat (or knows how to install it properly), so I would be hesitant to use that. With Mears Connect Driven by Sunshine, you don’t have to worry about a car seat. Car seats are not required for the buses, and the shuttle vans do have limited car seats available if you ask.

    I know this wasn’t the answer you were hoping for, Michael, but I hope it was helpful. Before you depart from Disney’s Riviera Resort, don’t forget to pick up one of the signature cookies from Primo Piatto. It is one of my favorite treats at the resort (second only to the Sticky Chicken Wings at Bar Riva). Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
