Exciting news coming from Disney Parks. After more than a year of being unavailable, the popular Minnie Van service will be returning to Walt Disney World Resort! The Minnie Vans are an easy way to get anywhere you want to go on Disney property without needing to wait for a bus. The Minnie Vans, in partnership with Lyft, can be ordered simply by opening your app anywhere around the Resort. Minnie Vans can even be ordered to whisk you away on your magical Disney vacation from Orlando International Airport.
Disney Parks shared the news of the exciting return on its official TikTok.

Minnie Van Service is a great way to get around Walt Disney World Resort quickly and in comfort—all while in a Disney-owned, Disney-operated vehicle.
How It Works
Our Minnie Van service works with the Lyft app. Simply open the Lyft app from anywhere within Walt Disney World Resort to access Minnie Van service, request a ride and pay for it through the app—or call (407) 828-3500 to request an accessible vehicle. Cars are usually minutes away.
To request a ride through the Lyft app:
- Open the app and select your Walt Disney World destination
- Confirm your pick-up location and tap “Select Minnie Van”; if Minnie Van service is not the default vehicle type displayed, you will need to swipe through your vehicle options until Minnie Van service is displayed
- The app will display a map tracking the vehicle en route—along with an identifying vehicle number to help you spot your car
Need an Accessible Vehicle?
Please call a Minnie Van Service Specialist at (407) 828-3500 to request an accessible vehicle. Requests can be made 45 to 60 minutes prior to needing the vehicle. Minnie Van vehicles can accommodate Guests with standard wheelchairs, motorized vehicles and electric conveyance vehicles (ECVs); however, an additional wait time may occur.
Pricing for Disney’s Minnie Van service while on property will vary depending on where you are and where you want to go. However, if you wish to book the Minnie Van to take you between Orlando International Airport and the Walt Disney Resort, the cost as listed on the Disney website is $155 each way. Gratuity is not included in that price.
While Disney has not confirmed an exact date for the return of Minnie Vans, it is exciting to hear that it may be just a few months away! You can learn more about Disney’s Minnie Van service by clicking here.
