Ever since I announced my trip here a while back, I've been approached by hundreds of people, some crying, begging to take them with me. I've decided to bring you all along with me in on the biggest, most stupendous trip ever.

I found the absolute highlight of my Disney time to be waiting for 17 Rascal scooters to board the kneeling resort shuttle bus one-by-one, before subsequently cramming aboard for a lurching 25-minute snootful of middle America's moistest and heartiest olfactory oeuvre. Best enjoyed after everyone has spent a full day of waddling and/or rolling around outdoors in the Florida humidity.

By all means do your thing, your way... if by chance you should happen to enjoy the shuttle bus system for any reason, a review would be most appreciated. I find my memories of the experience are slowly fading. Or being suppressed as a psychological survival mechanism. Maybe both.

Greatest improvement of our 2018 trip over previous trips was taking Lyft in and out of the parks. Same daily price as Disney parking and WAY more convenient.

Minnie Vans are pricey but for soem trips worth it over Lyft/Uber since they have access to roads and dropoff/pickup locations that others dont. FYI, the Epcot Minnie Van pickup is the bus lot, not the parking lot that the app ahows.

I hate standing in the bus line at the end of a long Disney day. Since we drive over from our place at the beach anyway, I rarely see a reason to take a bus, when I can park. I do use the monorail, of course.

We always stayed at the New Orleans resort. Boat to HA, walked to the back gate of Epcot, walk to Epcot and Monorail it to MK.

I honestly wasn't expecting much. I picked this place because of Dinosaurs and my friends would never let me go here if they went with me. Food was okay. They had limeade, which was a plus as well. The dinosaurs themselves are in terrible condition and they have random shit like giant caterpillars.

I'm glad I did it, but I won't be doing it again.
Unless they add Dilolphosaurus.

Minnie Vans are run off of Lyft, and any rideshare can pick you up and drop you off at all the same places as Minnie Vans for the most part; literally the only difference is that Minnie Vans are driven by Disney CMs and Disney owns the vans as opposed to random people and their personal cars.

@WDWRLD isn't wrong, Minnie Vans are permitted to certain drop off and pick up locations that normal Uber and Lyft are not.

There are a couple other differences too. You can count on the Minnie Vans to have car seats for children, as well as some of them being wheelchair accommodating.
