    I have been trying to research Minnie Van reliability after fireworks or park close at MK. I found old forums from 2018 that said finding a Minnie Van at that time was rare. But has the availability improved since then? Or is it still a nightmare to get?

    Hi ya Nelson!

    Thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Walt Disney World Resort offers a wide variety of Resort Transportation options depending on where you want to go and where you currently are. You and your family can travel by; bus, water, Monorail, and even the sky! However, if you rather stay on land, then of course, the Minnie Van is fantastic!

    Disney Minnie Van Service is a quick and easy way to travel throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Be sure to have the Lyft app downloaded to your mobile device before requesting a ride. My last Minnie Van ride was after Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and it was raining. So you can imagine how many other families were trying to use this service! My fellow Disney Parks Moms Panelist, Tiffanie and I were able to get a Minnie Van back to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort fairly quickly. After chatting with the Cast Member who drove us, we were told that more Minnie Vans are constantly being added! We were also informed that wait time varies depending on how many available Minnie Vans are in the area you are trying to be picked up at and where your final destination is.

    Honestly, we did not mind waiting a little while for a personal ride back to our Disney Resort Hotel. The luxury of an adorable spotted ride with a friendly Cast Member made the ride service that much more exciting! I recommend traveling in a Minnie Van when you visit!

    Have a Magical Day!
