Taking a Minnie Van is a fun way to get around Walt Disney World. If you don’t want to wait on Disney transportation or would prefer some social distancing, it can save you a lot of time as well. In partnership with Lyft but driven by Disney cast members, Minnie Vans will take you anywhere on property you want to go, or to/from the airport. But, did you know you can earn three kinds of points as well? Lyft will give you extra Chase Ultimate Rewards, Delta and Hilton points for taking a Minnie Van (and regular Lyft too).

Extra Points Through Lyft
Whether you take the Minnie Van or regular Lyft, which is often around half the price, you can earn extra points with these three partners.
Chase Ultimate Rewards – If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve, you’ll earn 10 points per dollar. With a Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Freedom or Chase Freedom Unlimited, you’ll earn 5 points per dollar. You can link your accounts HERE.
Delta – You’ll earn one Delta SkyMile for every dollar you spend on Lyft. Currently, they’re also offering two miles per dollar for airport rides. You can link your accounts HERE.
Hilton – You’ll earn three Hilton Honors points for every dollar you spend on Lyft (economy, luxury, and extra seat rides). You’ll earn two points per dollar on shared rides. You can link your accounts HERE.
Ordering Minnie Van Service
It’s actually pretty simple. Except for airport trips (you have to call), you can book all other Minnie Van rides through the Lyft app. Here’s the basic instructions:
- Open the app and select your Walt Disney World destination
- Confirm your pick-up location and tap “Select Minnie Van”; if Minnie Van service is not the default vehicle type displayed, you will need to swipe through your vehicle options until Minnie Van service is displayed
- The app will display a map tracking the vehicle en route—along with an identifying vehicle number to help you spot your car
