Disney Releases Minnie Van Airport Transfer Update
We were surprised to see a new announcement released by Walt Disney World yesterday regarding the Minnie Van Airport Transfers. Previously Disney had only stated that in general the Minnie Van Service was temporarily unavailable. This umbrella statement covered both the transportation within the Resort itself and the commute to and from the Orlando International Airport.
We now have the official update that:
Minnie Van service is temporarily unavailable at Walt Disney World Resort. Please note that Minnie Van service to and from Orlando International Airport will not be available for bookings until further notice, including as either a package add-on or standalone option. We are working with guests with existing Minnie Van bookings to arrange alternate transportation during their stay.
There is currently no word on when this service will be returning but a few weeks ago we found the Minnie Vans parked outside of EPCOT just waiting to be returned to service. We are assuming though that with the recent Cast Member layoffs, the Minnie Van drivers were equally affected.
Previously you could secure your ride from the Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel or one of the select surrounding hotels (and vice versa) up to 6 months in advance. The cost of the Minnie Van airport service was $155 each way; gratuity not included.
Minnie Van vehicles were driven by Cast Members and provided guests a roomy, comfortable and playfully themed ride with a style inspired by Minnie Mouse. Each vehicle accommodated up to 6 Guests, 6 medium-sized suitcases and could be equipped with up to 3 complimentary car seats.
