Lately there has been a lot of buzz about the Minnie Van service returning to Walt Disney World. Previously it was believed the service was discontinued, but it might be coming back as blogs are reporting new Minnie Van signs showing up in the ride share pick-up/drop-off areas.
Blog Mickey posted an image earlier today with the Minnie Van signs showing up outside Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Now Orlando Theme Park 360 on Twitter said this happened a couple of days ago:

It does indeed appear that the service will be returning.
The question now is “How much will it cost?”
Originally the service was affordable, but then Disney did what they do best and raised the prices.
Other than being dropped off at the Magic Kingdom bus terminal instead of the Transportation and Ticket Center, it didn’t seem like that much of a perk. Maybe if you needed car seats it would have been a better option than other ride share services. But overall it was just a “Disney/Lyft” driver carting you around. They were very nice and it was a neat idea, but it can get very expensive after a couple of trips.
Disney is trying to claw back as much money as they can so that could impact the costs. However, they’ve moved the Minnie Van drop-off/pick-up location to the farthest areas at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, so maybe they will make it more affordable, but you have to go further to use it?
Watch it be both. It costs more and you have to walk farther.
Who knows. But what we do know is that it does indeed seem like the Minnie Vans are returning.
