If you plan to use Uber, Lyft or Minnie Van service as airport transportation to/form your resort, or to get from place to place In-World, here is some info you can use and some promotion codes to save money if you are a new rider with either company. The Promos Codes below are only valid for riders that have never used the service before, but all the other info below is useful for anyone using any of these services.
TIP 1: If you used the service before but you are traveling with someone who hasn’t, have them create an account which will allow you to use these codes.
TIP 2: If you have kids that need a car seat it’s best if you are able to provide them. However if you don’t have them, make sure to select the service that has a Car Seat included! (ie. “UberX + Car Seat”) You will pay extra for this. So if you have your own seats with you, use them with a regular Uber/Lyft. Also, they typically will only have one car seat, so if you have more than one kid that needs it, you’ll certainly have to bring your own. (Info on Florida Car Seat Laws) Lyft does not offer a car seat service at this time. You can also choose the Minnie Van service which has up to 3 car seats available (see below).
TIP 3: If you have 4 people and a lot of bags, you’ll likely need a UberXL/LyftXL car so you and your stuff will fit. If you have more than 4 people and a lot of bags, you may need two cars to get everyone and everything to fit, so keep that in mind when you summon the ride. You also might consider using the Minnie Van service which touts “Each vehicle accommodates up to 6 Guests & 8 medium-sized suitcases”
