Back at D23 Expo 2017, it was announced that the Walt Disney World Resort would be launching a pilot transportation service in partnership with the Lyft ride share service. This new service, called “Minnie Van Service” and would be a paid point to point service, using specially decorated vehicles with a capacity for 6 passengers, each vehicle having 2 children’s seats for the convenience of families staying on site at the resort, and the service would be accessed through the Lyft Ride Share App
Walt Disney World’s Official Announcement stated: “Through a collaboration with the US’ fastest growing ride share service, Lyft, guests at these resorts can arrange their own private Disney vehicle right from the Lyft app on their smartphone. With Minnie Van service, Disney cast members will then whisk you away 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!“
