Default Do Lyft coupons work for Minnie Vans?

I just got an email from Lyft with a coupon for 50% off of my next 10 weekday rides. Max value per ride is 10 bucks. Does anyone know if these coupons apply to the Minnie Van service? They use the Lyft app, so I thought it would be worthwhile to ask. TIA!

We were just there in September. It was the first time we tried the Minnie Vans.
I had the sign up discount coupons for lyft. They did apply to the Minnie Van.

Very pleased with the whole experience! It is a little pricey, but we had 6 in our party.
In my mind, it was and felt worth it.
The discount helps!

I was really hoping that someone had already tried this successfully! Thanks! We’ve used the Minnie Vans on two separate trips and found them to be very convenient. The price hurts a little with the recent increase, but a 10 dollar coupon will definitely help ease the pain! Did the app automatically apply the coupon and adjust the price?

The way that I understand it is that the Minnie Vans are treated like any other Lyft driver (but more expensive). The charges are sent to Lyft by Disney; Lyft then bills your credit card (or whatever payment method you've chosen). Any discounts from Lyft would be applied by them since Disney is not involved in that part of the transaction.

Yes, my discount was applied automatically.
I admit I was a bit challenged as this was my first time ever oredering any ride share.
Once I accepted the coupons and ordered the lyft/ Minnie van, the discount showed right up.
It adjusted the price in the app. Effortless.
