    We are staying at the DoubleTree Suites in Disney Springs. Do the Minnie Vans have service to that hotel? What other options are best for fastest travel to the Magic Kingdom? What about the boat from Disney Springs?

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I gotta say, I love the comfort and convenience of "riding the dots," as I like to say, in the Minnie Van Service. On a recent trip, we used the Minnie Van Service to travel from our room at Disney's BoardWalk Villas to our dinner reservation at California Grill and it was wonderful. Recently, the Minnie Van Service expanded its service to all Guests on Walt Disney World property. The Minnie Van Service uses an option within the Lyft app that's available for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. What you'll notice in the Lyft app is that if you select DoubleTree Suites as your pickup destination, the option to request a Minnie Van is not available, though you can still request one of the regular Lyft offerings. The DoubleTree Suites offers a complimentary Disney shuttle, so that could be a convenient option for you. There is Walt Disney World Water Transportation that services Disney Springs and its nearby resorts — Disney’s Port Orleans Resort, Disney’s Old Key West Resort, and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa — though that transportation does not transport Guests to the theme parks.

    Michael, while you are at Disney Springs, be sure to check out the fantastic dining, shopping, and entertainment offerings. Some of my favorite Walt Disney World restaurants are located at Disney Springs, including Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' and Paddlefish.

    Here's wishing you a great Walt Disney World vacation.

    Enjoy your Disney!
