    Harrumph.
    (1) Being run by Lyft, it (like Lyft and Uber) discriminates against those of us who do not choose to own a smartphone.

    (2) What difference does having airport service make? There's Disney's Magical Express for that.

    What would make it useful to me would be if (1) it had service to the train station, and (2) it had service for the smartphone-less.

    Harrumph.

    I believe you can order the Minnie vans from the concierge desk at the hotels, so it's not necessary to have a smartphone. Not 100% sure on that, but it would make sense to me to be able to do that.

    Damn straight.
    I have recently upgraded my over-a-decade-old 2.5G CDMA-only clamshell (mainly because during last year's fall vacation, it was a paperweight for the entire time I was in Canada -- they'd dropped 2.5G CDMA support only a few months earlier!). But I upgraded it . . . to another clamshell.

    I can do rudimentary web searches, and check my email and BBSs, and make laconic replies. And I can open a WiFi hotspot for my cheap-<Equus asinius> Android tablet, if necessary. But no touch-screen, and no downloadable apps.

    I wonder if Lyft and Uber apps work on my cheap-<E. asinius> Android tablet . . . .

    We have 300Mg of data a month. We can do simple tasks but if we try to actually read anything we usually run out of memory.
