    We will be arriving at MK before opening time and need to rent an ECV. Is it possible to rent an ECV at the main entrance before the gates open? Thank you!

    Hi Ashley,

    The answer is "it depends." The ECV/wheelchair rental station is inside the park entrance turnstiles. Sometimes guests are admitted into the park a bit early and allowed to proceed up to the foot of Main Street before official park opening, in which case you would likely be able to get an ECV early. However most of the time you'll have to wait either until the park opens or you're given special entrance because of a character meal or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation. You'll need to speak to a cast member when you get to the park.

    If you'll need an ECV for more than one day of your trip, you're likely better off renting from an outside vendor. Some of the Moms Panelists have had good luck with Buena Vista Scooters.

    Let us know if you need more help and we'll be happy to point you in the right direction.
