Paid Transportation Options to Disney Springs

If you are traveling with a smaller number of people, or you don't want to deal with waiting for buses, ride-sharing services may be a great fit.

At an additional cost, you can request a ride-sharing service to pick you and your party up and transport you over to the next park.

Some visitors would rather do this, instead of having to deal with some of the stops that buses will have.

You'll simply download a ride-sharing service app such as Uber or Lyft, and you'll be able to call for a car immediately, or even schedule hours (or days) ahead for pick-up.


At an additional cost, visitors can take the Minnie Van Service where the drivers are Disney Cast Members.

The Minnie Van Service is a Disney-themed car that can take guests to a Disney park in style (and comfort).

Each vehicle accommodates up to 6 Guests.

Guests will simply use the Lyft app to schedule their rides as they normally would.

However, they will select 'Minnie Van Service' over the other options (Lyft, Lyft XL, etc).

How it Works

To request a ride through the Lyft app:

Open the app and select Disney Springs as the drop-off location.

Confirm your pick-up location and select “Select Minnie Van”

The app will then show a map with available Minnie Van drivers tracking the vehicle en route—along with an identifying vehicle number to help you spot your car

Hours of Operation
Minnie Van service operates from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM daily. Hours of operation are subject to change.
