Minnie Vans are a great option for getting around Disney property. However, with their price tag choosing when to use them is important.
There are some instances where the time savings and the convenience of the Minnie Van far out-weight the cost.
Let’s take a look at some of these!
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
Getting to Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness is quite the task. You can either travel to Magic Kingdom park and grab a boat from there or head direct to the resort and try to navigate the internal bus system.
That was until the Minnie Vans came out. Guests can now get dropped off right at Pioneer Hall, where the dinner show is held.
This can save literally hours of travel of time for just a small fee.
Speaking of getting to Magic Kingdom, the Minnie Van is a great option for arriving to the park.
Unlike regular ride shares and taxis guests can dropped off where the resort busses do.
This allows you to bypass the Transportation and Ticket Center if you for some reason cannot, or do not, want to use the Disney busses.
Getting to Disney’s Boardwalk used to be a trek itself, especially if you want to visit at night.
At night your best option was using Disney Springs as a go-between to get to your resort.
Now you can easily call a Minnie Van to get back to your resort. This can save a lot of time after a long day of park touring.
Early Morning Reservations
Booking early morning reservations used to be a stressful thing. You could never truly guarantee how you would get yourself to either the park or other resort that you booked at.
With Minnie Van’s typically starting around 6AM you know that you will be able to call one and get to your reservation on time.
No more worrying about transit times on the Disney busses.
When You’re Running Late
On the opposite side of a well planned early morning reservation, sometimes you are just simply running late.
Everyone one of has been there whether it’s a dining reservation or even a coveted FastPass you may just need to get to where you want to go.
If you don’t have time to wait the 20-45 minutes just for a Disney bus to show up you can call a Minnie Van.
They’ll usually be at your location within 10 minutes, and depending where you’re going within 45 minutes.
It is a great way to save time across the board.
