We at Disney Fanatic first suspected the return and reported Disney’s first announcement on the Minnie Vans return back in March of this year. But, while the return was confirmed for this summer, no official date had been announced. Now, we know that the iconic polka-dotted SUVs and vans will return to Disney World street before the end of this month and just in time for 4th of July Weekend!

The Walt Disney World Resort founded the Minnie Vans when ridesharing first became popular, and Cast Members began to realize that Guests would pay to have Disney-World-Offical private transportation to and from their Disney Resort Hotel or Disney Theme Park, Disney Springs, and all other points on the property. Disney’s Minnie Vans also offered private transportation to and from Orlando International Airport.
