These very popular transportation option will soon be back on the road! But what are Minnie Vans? Minnie Vans are a private vehicle service at Walt Disney World, operated similarly to Uber or Lyft, but operated by Cast Members in Minnie Mouse-inspired cars.

When planning your vacation to Disney World, one of the first things you’ll want to think about is what Disney Resort you’ll want to stay at. The Walt Disney World Resort offers 25 hotels to choose from! So how do you choose the perfect resort?
During our first conversation, I will ask you a series of questions to help find the right resort for your family’s wants and needs. One of the questions I ask is “What resort category would you like to stay in? Value, Moderate, or Deluxe?” Most people will want the cheapest option, then when they arrive at their resort are disappointed to find some amenities that are not at the resort.

Value and Moderate Resorts are going to be more of a “motel layout.” Meaning you enter your room from an outside corridor. If you want a true hotel feel, a Deluxe will be worth looking at. I like to ask what is important to you out of six main amenities offered.

It’s official, Disney has announced the retirement of the fan favorite FastPass. Rumors have been swirling around for several months about if FastPass will return, how it will be changed, or even if it will come back at all. Once Disneyland Paris debuted Premier Access, (a paid service to gain access to shorter lines) to me, it seemed like a matter of time until the Disney Theme Parks Stateside would follow their lead and roll out with a paid FastPass type service.
