has been shuttling guests of Disney Resorts around the Disney Property in fun polka-dotted vans for about a year now. After a test period at select Resorts the service was expanded to guests at all Disney Resorts earlier this year – then expanded again to whisk people to Orlando International Airport.
The Minnie Vans are Disney-operated personal rides that guests can book through the Lyft app (airport rides are booked by calling 407-WDW-PLAY). The Minnie Vans are driven by Disney Employees.
Currently, the fee for a ride in a Minnie Van is a flat $25 around property, while a ride to or from the Orlando International Airport is $150. However, in the coming days this is about to change according to wdwmagic.com.
We have learned the Minnie Vans are moving to a distance based pricing model instead of a flat fee. In addition, the Minnie Van service will be expanded to include guests at Bonnet Creek, Flamingo Crossings, and Hotel Plaza Boulevard resorts.

Remember, Disney World is HUGE, and there is a lot of literal ground to cover! It pays in time (possibly the most valuable asset of your Disney vacation) to know your transportation options in advance. So be sure to learn all about them in our DFB YouTube Video about Disney World Transportation.
