Minnie Vans to Fort Wilderness - where do they drop you off?

As my title states, I'm wondering where the Minnie Vans drop you off at Fort Wilderness. Since they are Disney vehicles, can they take you all the way to Pioneer Hall for the HDD or Trails End Buffet or do they drop you off at the main parking lot?

If they can take us all the way in, it might be worth the price for the convenience of not having to drive and then wait for a bus (which we never seem to have luck with.

Yes! I don't have personal experience, but I've heard on podcasts that they can take you right to Pioneer Hall. Sounds like it would be worth it to me!

We spent this past Christmas at WDW (most amazing holiday ever thanks to wonderful parents and their DVC membership!!). On Jan. 30th, my daughter and I went to the Poly beach to see the NYE fireworks from the MK since they also do them that night (we left on the 31st). Of course, the Poly and the MK were packed, so I decided to try a Minnie Van to get us back to Saratoga Springs. At the time, it was still $20, and was the best $20 I ever spent!! We got the MV super quick right in front of Poly. It was there in literally less than 5 minutes from when I requested it through the app. The driver was super nice and full of knowledge. I assumed he would drop us off at the main check-in building of SS and we would just walk over to our villa. But no!!! He drove straight to the building we were staying in and dropped us off just steps from our villa! He said the MV will take you anywhere you want to go on property! Basically, if you can drive a car there, it will take you there! Amazing!!

I was also curious about this and checked with a group on FB. I was told that the Minnie Van will drop you off in front of Pioneer Hall; a woman confirmed she experienced it. I'm going to try it out in November when I go from YC to FW for a reservation at Trail's End.

Good luck - and remember to post back here what you experienced. I'd still love to try it but I learned that Lyft only works with cell service which I don't have on my device so I won't be able to use the Minnie Vans
