Disney shares a big update on the status of Minnie Van service!

Disney halted its paid rideshare service when the parks reopened last July. These stylish, yet overpriced to many, polka dot vans moved Guests around property and back and forth to the Orlando International Airport.

How does one get a Minnie Van? Disney partnered with Lyft so you have the option to choose one in the app. They are desirable due to the fact that they are driven by Cast Members and includes two child seats if needed.

Sadly, these Cast Members who operate the vehicles were laid off last year, and Disney has remained tight-lipped about when the service may return.

However, with many of the health and safety protocols essentially nonexistent, we are wondering when this service may resume.

Back in May, a few clues led us to believe Disney was thinking about bringing the vans back. We spotted the option to select a Minnie Van in the Lyft app first. Then, just the next day, we shared that Disney installed new signs at Hollywood Studios.

Runners participating in the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend also spotted the vans lined up in the parking lots. But, just when will they actually return!?

Disney just shared the good news that Minnie Vans are returning! This confirms all of our past speculations. According to their TikTok video, the service will return this summer (2022). However, no further date is provided.

The video is pretty cute, too! You can see a hand splashing water on one of the miniature toy vans. Then it pans in and out to show a real one.

See their video below:

Will the laid off cast members be recalled? Probably not. Follow the money.

I tried to schedule a Minnie Van during our trip to DW in October 2018 and could not get a response through the Lyft app. There was a little blue circle spinning round and round, but no response for 20 minutes. We just hopped on a bus and I didn't try again for the remainder of the trip.
