REVIEW: Minnie Vans Transportation Service Launches Through Lyft at Walt Disney World

Starting today, guests at Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts (both French Quarter and Riverside), can go to the front desk at the resort to activate the point-to-point transportation service for their use.

Please note that on February 12th, 2018, Walt Disney World raised the price per standard ride in a Minnie Van vehicle from $20 to $25.

As well, the Minnie Van airport transportation service that launched a few weeks ago is still available at select concierge resorts at the same initial price point.

Minnie Vans is a paid transportation service that is operated by Disney and summoned through the Lyft app. Please check out our review to see how it works and if Minnie Vans will be right for you.

Just need them to expand this service to offer something akin to the former Express Transportation option – I’d pay $25 for a backstage skip-security park-hop.


I STRONGLY agree, need express transport back! Just returned from a 12 day trip, used minnie vans multiple times, but cannot accommodate our family of 6 in one due to kids car seats. PLUS cannot transport you off property, which I found out the hard way when I needed to go to a quick care after my daughter fell and needed stitches at HS.

I am not surprised the Disney general call center wouldn’t know. Call or ask at the front desk.
