Of all the things to "blow" money on, this seems the most practical and reasonable. If a t-shirt costs 30-40$, you've got 3-4 Lyft rides (not Minnie Van) plus tip.Aside from all the other responses here, there is no direct hotel-to-hotel service, outside of the MK resort area, so a dinner at Boca requires you, from the Grand Floridian, to take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom, then take a bus to Animal Kingdom Lodge. It can take 60-90 mins, depending on the crowd levels. Uber allows you to avoid this by getting you there within 10 minutes for $7-8. Why would you not do it?
And two guaranteed car seats. That alone is huge for some people.
Weird to have pop century but not AoA. I guess we could walk over to pop to use it?
I have been using it to get to my hotel from anywhere other than a park almost always for dinner or a bar. That is always a logistical nightmare and takes multiple buses. Not sure I would ever use it to get to a park since you can go from any resort to a park. Even if I was at DS I would take the bus to the CR.
I enjoy talking to the cast members, I have kids that require booster seats, I drink the Koolaid... lolGenuine question why pay that premium when you could use Uber/Lyft for 1/3 of the cost? It makes the most sense, to me, when its either to or from MK (to avoid the crush of crowds) or to Fort Wilderness (to avoid having to take the bus to the bank).
