Disney World’s Minnie Van Service is set to return on June 29th, 2022. Minnie Vans have been spotted recently around Disney World performing tests before the service’s return later this month. So, let’s take a look at what the service is, how it works, and what is offered for this unique mode of Disney transportation.
What Is The Minnie Van Service?
The Minnie Van service is a transportation service that will take guests from their resort to the theme parks and other locations on Disney property. This transportation service is a partnership between the popular ride-sharing company, Lyft, and Disney. You get all the convenience of hailing a normal ride-share, with all the flash and flair of a Disney-themed vehicle.
The Minnie Van vehicles are large, comfortable, and playfully themed with a design that is influenced by Minnie Mouse. Each vehicle can carry up to 6 passengers. Each vehicle is supplied with two child safety seats that Disney Cast Members can set up for you if needed.
The Minnie Van service is a great way to get around Disney World, and it’s returning just in time for the busy summer season.
What Locations Are Serviced by Minnie Vans?
The Minnie Van service is available at all four of Disney World’s theme parks, as well as Downtown Disney and Disney Springs.
Minnie Van Service is available at the following locations:
- Magic Kingdom Area

Prior to Disney pressing pause on this transportation service, it was possible to take the Minnie Van service from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) into Disney World.
