I have always maintained that there is no need to rent a car when you’re staying on Disney property at Walt Disney World. The Magical Express will take you back and forth to the airport and the bus, monorail, or boats will take you anywhere else for FREE. Why would you pay extra to rent a car? Because you want the convenience and comfort.
At the end of the night when you’re leaving a park it can be very crowded. While Disney does their best to make sure they have plenty of buses, monorails and boats, there is inevitably a long line for some of them when a park closes for the evening. If you’re willing to pay extra to avoid the crowds, a car rental, taxi or Uber were your only options – until now.
Guests staying at Disney’s Boardwalk, Yacht and Beach Club Resorts will are the first to test out this new mode of transportation. Guests are able to arrange their own private transfer within Disney property from a smartphone. Each van comes equipped with two car seats for children stored in the trunk if they are not required. A trip is $20 USD flat fee for up to 6 passengers.
With the launch of the Express Transportation option I was happy to pay extra for a little comfort when I was park hopping. The new Minnie Vans are going to be a welcome cost at the end of a long night when I just want to get back to my resort and put my feet up.
I can’t wait to test them out! Stay tuned for my full review!
