Introducing uberFAMILY (car seats) to Orlando

Riding with Uber just became more accessible than ever for you and your family. No car seat? No problem. The new uberFAMILY option is going live within your Uber app on Wednesday, March 2, and will allow you to request a driver who will pick you up with a car seat available for your child. Traveling with your family just became a whole lot more convenient.

To celebrate the launch of uberFAMILY, we’re partnering with the Disney movie Zootopia and Hilton Orlando to offer riders some incredible opportunities.


Orlando’s uberFAMILY Rider Zero is Brek Shea

We’re thrilled that, starting today, families will be able to rely on uberFAMILY to get around Orlando with their little ones. The first person to officially catch a ride with uberFAMILY, however, is American soccer superstar Brek Shea!

Brek doesn’t need much help when he’s cruising around the pitch, but he loves to use Uber to cruise around the city, both when he’s home and away.


Hilton Orlando’s uberFAMILY Day

On Saturday, March 5, your family could win an afternoon at the Hilton Orlando pool, complete with a lazy river, waterslide, and whirlpool. You will enjoy a reserved area (just for Uber Family Day winners) at the main pool from 11am-6pm. Finally, your family will receive a $50 lunch voucher for Tropics Pool Bar & Grill (valid for the day), as well as 2 souvenir cups and 2 pair of sunglasses.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Open your app and enter the promo code HILTONORLANDO to unlock the ‘FAMILY DAY’ option
  • Open your app on Saturday, March 5, at 11am
  • Be one of the first 10 families to choose the ‘FAMILY DAY’ option and tap request
  • Gather up to three additional family members and enjoy your day at Hilton!
