Minnie Van Service premiered last year at Walt Disney World. The ride share service operates from the Lyft app, is operated by Disney with Disney Cast Members and Company vehicles, and can take you anywhere at Walt Disney World and to the Orlando International Airport. There were numerous updates to the service in the past year, highlights include adding every Walt Disney World resort to the app, an increase in the service from $20 to $25 per ride, and more recently the service being unlocked to anyone requesting a ride on Lyft from within the proximity of Walt Disney World.

Minnie Van – ADA Accessible Ford Transit 150

In our initial review we noted that there were special ADA accessible vehicles (Ford Transit 150, pictured above) with a wheelchair lift for transportation requests. These vehicles, while large, would only accommodate one wheelchair. Early this year the Minnie Van fleet expanded by adding numerous new 2018 Chevy Traverse vans and now they’re expanding again with the addition of two new Ford Transit 350 vehicles. These are equipped with a wheelchair lift, similar to the older ADA vehicles, but have a larger interior. While we haven’t seen these in action yet, we anticipate the larger interior might be able to fit two wheelchairs, enabling families with multiple accessibility needs to utilize the service efficiently.
