Default Uber or Lyft during Christmas and New Year

Is taking Uber or Lyft an effective transportation strategy during Christmas and New Year at WDW, as opposed to taking buses? Are they harder to find because of the demand?

Talking I was able to use lyft

I didnít have trouble using lyft over xmas.

I did hit surge pricing once, but just waited a half hour and then for normal pricing.

Yup, works well, though buses usually just fine, too.

Yes and no.....Depends on the day and if there are road closures and park closures. Especially in NYE night, I suggest using Disney transportation.



We used both Uber and Lyft this year on our Christmas/NYE trip. We had mixed results....half the time I ended up canceling the ride because the buses running was faster. Twice, we ended up just grabbing a taxi sitting right outside the park exit of DHS......and the price was not terrible.

Used UBER off site to the parks and to BLT on the 30th and 31st. no problem. they took lots of backways but very effecient. I got an uber at 1202 am on NYE and did not pay a surcharge..got lucky i think.
