With the addition of the new Minnie Van service at Walt Disney World, I'm curious as to whether you think it is worth it, and if you would book one of these over Uber or Lyft? From what I'm seeing, if you need a car seat or have more than 4 people, the Minnie Van is a good value, but I just don't see why most people would book the Minnie Van over Uber/Lyft, as you can get most places on property for less than the $20 flat rate that the Minnie Van charges. Is riding around in the arguably very cute polka-dot van worth the extra $? Curious as to other's opinions!

It was well worth it to us!
Every Traverse comes with 2 available car seats (Uber only has up to one on select vehicles for a $10 fee), is driven by a Disney CM and is just plain fun!
When we signed up and activated the Minnie Can service we got a coupon for $2 off our next few rides so it was $18 for us.
An Uber may run $6-$10 but if you need that car seat you’re paying more so it evens out.
A little known trick is that you can take your phone with the Lyft app to any concierge at one of the deluxe resorts and they will send you the code to activate the Minnie Van service. At that point you can then catch a Minnie Van anywhere on property

I totally think it is worth it! We loved it so much, we used it three times! I love talking Disney and soaking in as much knowledge as possible and in a Minnie van the cast members love to share their Disney experiences. They are super chatty and my family enjoys getting to know the wonderful cast members - both their personal story and their experiences working for Disney. It is super cool to rock the dots as you ride too!
