    Is there a consolidated list of where the Minnie Vans pickup at each Disney Park?

    The only park I utilized it from was HS and there was a little confusion in finding the right place during park close (got some different information from different people) and I was hoping to have the locations handy for my next trip!

    Tagging @AngiTN because she's good with this stuff and was just there.

    These are all subject to change, but for MK & AK.....

    MK - Bus Stop #11

    AK - easier to see on an aerial than explain.... see red circle. It's at the "end" of the furthest bus stop. (aerial is obviously a bit old)

    I saw this and unfortunately, I didn't have much info to help.
    Beyond the 2 you have. I know HS moved to a bus stop but I don't know which one.
    Not sure about Epcot, we haven't taken a Minnie Van there, only Uber/Lyft.
    I do know one of the drivers told me that they intend to move ALL of the Minnie Van stops to a bus stop, as soon as it can be rearranged. Even the AK one is temporary till they get a space established.

    Thank you for the information you guys were able to provide!

    I guess since the service is still new, there is not a whole bunch of information out there and it is still evolving. When I was at HS some CMs thought we needed to go to the main rideshare area. The nice CM there informed us of where we actually had to go. I wish the Lyft app would specifically tell you "bus stop 11." I do not believe it did that night. Just to get to the appropriate area on a map. It would not be a huge deal, but Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular had just ended and the Poly/GF bus line looked like it was going to need about 3 busses to come before we could make it on. The Minnie Van came very fast so I hope to use it at times like this in March.

    I think I will call one early on in the trip and speak with the driver. Every driver we had in October was extremely friendly and helpful! Hopefully he/she will know all the pickup locations.

    Here now. Epcot is in that circular area in front of the stops. Was at bus stop 7 for AKL looking right at one across the way in the circular area. Maybe also the taxi area

    When I got picked up from DHS in early December, it was way over by the charter buses. Hopefully it moved closer. It was an annoying walk (well, I was also carrying a tantrum-ing toddler, soo.....)

    Oh yes, that does sound annoying!

    I hope once they are fully implemented across the whole resort that they have more convenient pickup areas and permanent signage. I think the service is fantastic, once you're in the car haha

    Using it to go from resort to resort is such a breeze!
