Anyone know if these are running 24 hours a day?
Probably not in a row.
I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, "Hey, the sign says you're open 24-hours." He said, "Yea, but not in a row." - Steven Wright
I've read they will be running from 6:30AM to 12:30AM. Has this been confirmed by Disney?
I think it's cute, but at double the cost of an Uber, I'd never choose it.
Because this is Disney transportation, are they able to pick up/drop off at the gate instead of the TTC?
I still don't think I'd use it as frequently as I use Lyft or Uber, however, $20 to MK and dropped off at the bus stop is one time I'd make an exception.
That seems like it would be worth the extra $$
For parties of two, UberX will (almost) always be cheaper than the $20 flat fee for the vans for rides within property. When we use it to MK, we just have them drop us at the Contemporary and walk over instead.
Yes at the bus stop
20 bucks? pretty pricey.
I think that $20 is ok...if you're a family and need a car seat. if you use all available seats then you're pretty likely to break even between an uber xl with seats and a minnie van
Yeah, if it's just two people, then an UberX will almost always be cheaper. However, with larger parties or those with car seats, it depends on a variety of factors, including surge pricing and tips, and I think many families will opt for the predictable flat rate in those cases. Here's a pretty good review with a cost analysis.
I would use this if I was going to/from MK if not staying in the MK resort area.
Other than that, Uber works for my fam, but this is a great option for larger families.
2 of us I'll call Uber still ,20 is steep
People have said its not really double since it holds 6 and includes 2 car seats, which is an up-charge on uber, and to hold 6 people requires a bigger vehicle than the standard uber
this could be huge for families with lots of kids and strollers, dont know if this is a permanent thing, or a just until they have bigger vehicles thing
thats definitely nice you dont have to get dropped off at the front of the resort
i wonder if they will figure it out so you can get picked up in these locations too as some of the resorts its a long walk from the room to the front lobby
This is huge!! not sure where taxi's and ubers drop off at most of the parks to know the distance walked
but seems smart to put these with the buses, as then if a family gets tired of waiting for a bus they could get in this line instead that is if they plan to do a taxi stand type thing of minnie vans
just not sure about the safety of this, as you dont want kids jumping out of their 'minnie van' into the path of a disney bus, would be really bad if a disney bus squished a kid at a theme park
Well if you need car seats or 6 people.. that's great On my last trip staying at Bonnet Creek, my only uber trips over $10 were ones of significant distance.
$12.38 to get up to sand lake road to a bar
$12.72 to get up to I drive to the Blue Martini
$22.97 to get to the airport
From Bonnet Creek to the TTC I paid $10 and $10.15
for trips to DHS I paid $7.02
to EPCOT I paid $6.20
uberXL (for more than 3 people) would have been more.
This is a good deal for some demographics, not so great for others. But being able to drop off at MK and at large resorts if they go near your building, that's a huge benefit too. ubers generally operate out of the taxi stand areas at WDW... so TTC, front door of resorts, and taxi loops at the other parks (which depending on the park.. can be very close)
ADA accessible Minnie Vans.
where's the minnie van depot located on property?
