Disney Reveals Minnie Van Return Date!

Back in late March, Disney Parks took to TikTok to let fans and Guests know that the popular Minnie Van service would be returning to the Walt Disney World Resort this summer. Minnie Vans have only been available at Walt Disney World since 2017, but they have become an increasingly popular way for people to get around the Resort — especially larger families and those who don’t want to wait for Disney’s Resort busses.

Well, we have had to wait a few months, but Disney has finally given us a return date for its Minnie Van service — June 29! The news was first shared by Disney Parks Blog, which said:

Let’s start with one of the cutest Disney transportation options, Minnie Vans. This private car service will roll back in on June 29, 2022, and guests can enjoy being driven around property by expert, specially trained cast members. Panelist Diana V. reminds us, “One of my favorite things about visiting Walt Disney World is that I don’t have to worry about driving during my vacation!”

Minnie Van Service is one of the most convenient and personalized transportation options to choose from – with quick, point-to-point drop-offs and pick-ups around Walt Disney World, at prices that vary by route. It’s easy: Book by just opening your Lyft App and selecting a Minnie Van vehicle to pick you up! Guests can also use the app to request an Accessible Minnie Van, as needed, and each Minnie Van comes equipped with two complimentary car seats for your littlest travelers.

Minnie Vans are just one way Guests can get around the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests staying on Resort property have a number of modes of transportation available, including busses that go to each Resort hotel, Disney Springs, Disney’s two water Parks, and the four theme parks. There are also boats that travel around Disney’s Boardwalk and between EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A ferry also takes Guests to the Magic Kingdom from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and the Grand Floridian.

Another incredibly popular option is the Monorail, which runs to EPCOT and the Magic Kingdom, as well as Disney’s Polynesian Resort, the Grand Floridian, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and the Ticket and Transportation Center. Guests can also take Disney’s newest creation — the Skyliner. The Skyliner goes between several Resorts, including Caribbean Beach and Art of Animation. The Skyliner also runs to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. It is a fun way to see Disney from high in the sky!
