    We are staying at the Waldorf Astoria during our stay. Is this hotel able to be serviced by Minnie Vans?

    Hi Elizabeth! Welcome to planDisney! It's great to have you stop by!

    Disney Transportation is one of my favorite parts of a Walt Disney World trip! There are so many different options to get around, that getting to your destination is part of the magic. Where else can you choose between traveling by boat, bus, monorail, or even through the air on the Disney Skyliner! Now with the return of the Minnie Van service, Guests can travel around the Resort in style!

    You are going to have a fantastic time staying at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando. The location is perfect and puts you so close to many of the parks. While the hotel does offer a shuttle bus service to the parks, you will have the option to take a ride-share service while staying here as well. With the Minnie Van service connected by Lyft, you'll need to download the app to your mobile device to search for this option. I was able to speak to a couple of Cast Members who provided me with some solid advice to pass along. The Walt Disney World website depicts different pick-up and drop-off locations for the Minnie Van service, most of them being Disney Resorts Hotels and theme parks. It does not show the Waldorf Astoria as one of the options. The Cast Member recommended signing into the app when you arrive at the hotel and checking if the Minnie Van service shows up as an option. If so, you should have no problem using this service. 

    With the return of Minnie Vans being fairly new, Walt Disney World is making changes to it almost every day. With your visit still a couple of months away, I would continue checking the website to see if any changes to pick-up locations are made there. I also suggest giving the Waldorf Astoria hotel a call and asking if they are aware of Minnie Vans picking up Guests from the hotel. They should be able to share if they have seen Guests using this service.

    Elizabeth, I hope some pixie dust flies your way and you are able to take a ride in a Minnie Van during your visit! 

    See ya real soon!
