Minnie Vans seem to be a huge success for Disney. So much so that they expanded service to include trips to Orlando International Airport and Port Canaveral from the resort. Resort transportation has more options than ever and each comes with a price (even if the price of your “free” trip is being on Disney’s schedule).
Here’s a rundown for guests staying onsite:
- Disney transport (buses, monorail, boat, Skyway when it opens) – free.
- Minnie Van (price varies, but count on around $20 each way).
- Ride share like Uber or Lyft (varies, but around $7 – 10 each way plus tip).
- Cab (varies, but around $10 – 20 each way plus tip).
- Rental or personal car (rental fee plus resort parking fee of $13 to 24/night). DVC members do not have a parking fee at DVC resorts.
As with most things in life, the less expensive something is (Disney transport), the less convenient it is. Minnie Vans are the outlier. If you only use them for one round trip a day, the cost is probably less than renting a car and paying to park at your resort. But a Minnie Van will drop you closer to park entrance than driving yourself.
It’s a lot to think about.
