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 don’t want to take multiple connections to get to a resort dinner reservation, 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 Delta, Hilton, and JetBlue 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.
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. You can link your accounts HERE.
JetBlue – With JetBlue, you’ll 30 points total for airport rides. Now, if you’re paying the $150 that’s being charged for the Minnie Van services to or from the airport, you are in a much higher tax bracket than I am. God bless you if you are. But, I recommend taking a normal Lyft to the airport. Here’s the link.
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
If you’re new to Lyft, you can download the app with that link.
