Minnie Van Service Expanding to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

Beginning February 12, Disney’s Minnie Van Transportation Service will be available at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground at Walt Disney World Resort.

In case you aren’t familiar, the Minnie Van Service is a collaboration with Lyft, allowing guests at Walt Disney World to arrange their own private Disney vehicle right from the Lyft app on their smartphone. With Minnie Van Service, Disney cast members will drive you to wherever you want to be at Walt Disney World Resort. This service accommodates up to six guests and provides two versatile car seats so even the tiniest of passengers can travel in style!  The cost is $20 for a one way trip.
