In conjunction with Lyft, Disney Parks announced in a statement on Monday, July 31, that it was starting a new transportation pilot for guests that would be staying at their Yacht & Beach Club and BoardWalk Resort. And, they certainly didn’t drop the ball in the name department. Those that would like to get from point A to point B at Disney in style, can now do so in a “Minnie Van.”

The exterior of each six-passenger van will be painted to mimic Minnie Mouse’s signature wardrobe, complete with white polka dots, and they’ll also be outfitted with two child safety seats for the smallest Disney guests.

Recently announcing additional cruise ship sailings from Galveston, it’s not hard to tell that this added move with its signature Disney customer service techniques will go the extra mile with those in the Lone Star State. Not only will these new “Minnie Vans” transport their park-goers anywhere within the resort’s property, but they’ll be driven by Disney cast members in full-body costume (without their headgear, for safety reasons of course). You could be formally escorted by Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, or even Goofy! John Zimmer, co-founder and President of Lyft, identified in a statement that “Playing a part in a family’s experience at the most magical place on earth is a dream come true,” and we’d venture a guess that he’s right.
