Minnie Van Service Officially Returns to Disney World Today

    After an extensive soft opening period, the Minnie Van private transportation service has returned to Walt Disney World.

    The service, which was paused during the COVID-19 pandemic, returns today with a new look courtesy of an updated fleet that is now all Suburban vehicles – ditching the smaller Traverse models in favor of a roomier experience. We recently rode in a Minnie Van during the soft opening phase and wrote about our experience and what you can expect if you use the service on an upcoming trip.

    We also took a look at the pricing, which is certainly much more expensive than a standard ride-share offering, but also cheaper than some of the top-tier ride-share options. The pricing is dynamic based on destination and time of day, but it will generally fall within a $15 range as we explore in the article below.

    For guests using the service today and tomorrow, Lyft is offering a $5 coupon for your next standard ride as supplies last.

    At this time, airport service has not returned, but drivers are being trained to bring back the service at a later date. The Minnie Van service is not currently available for many Disney Springs area resorts and the Flamingo Crossings resorts.

    Here’s a look at how Disney describes the Minnie Van service:
