    Does a 3 year old need a car seat to take a taxi from the parking area to the hotel

    Hi Ellen, 

    Oh my Mickey! I can’t believe your trip is only a few days away. You must be thrilled to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort so soon.

    As far as I am aware, Florida state law does require children 5-years-old and younger to be secured in a child restraint safety system. If you will not have your own along, you are able to arrange both “family” taxis and Ubers that are equipped with their own child safety seats. If you are a Guest of one of the participating Minnie Van Service Resort Hotels, this is another option with seats available. My family used a Minnie Van on two separate occasions last visit and found it to be so easy and convenient. We only waited a few minutes from when I requested the vehicle and we were whisked away to our destination in perfect polka-dotted style. Lastly, the complimentary Disney buses and other modes of transportation are another way to get around the resort without needing a child safety seat. 

    Have an absolutely fabulous vacation, Ellen, and if there is anything else we are able to assist you with, please let us know.

    Magical Wishes,
