    Can I bring my walker with me or do I have to rent one from there. What is the cost to rent one. We are planning to be there for 10 days in the parks

    Welcome to planDisney, Hali!

    I am thrilled that you stopped by today with this great question. Mobility devices, such as walkers, wheelchairs, and electric conveyance vehicles (ECVs) are absolutely allowed inside the parks. The only exception is that mobility devices must have three or more wheels, so no motorcycles or electronic bicycles. You will also want to make sure that your mobility device is single rider and is less than 36 inches wide by 52 inches long. 

    I will be honest and tell you that a trip to Walt Disney World requires a lot of walking. For this reason, I would opt for an ECV rental over bringing your walker from home. 

    I often travel with my in-laws, and although they do not use a cane or walker at home, they still need an ECV to cover the distance of the theme parks. I also like that almost all attraction queues are ECV and wheelchair friendly, letting you sit and rest while you wait. 

    If you choose to rent a wheelchair or an ECV in the park you can do so near the theme park entrance. Wheelchairs are available at a cost of $10 - $12 per day and ECVs are available at a cost of $50 per day. Please note that prices are subject to change. I also want to make sure you know that while you can pre-pay for your entire trip, wheelchairs and ECVs may not leave the parks, so you will need to rent and return them each day. 

    For my family, I prefer to go with an outside rental company for an ECV. Not only are the rates a little more affordable but I like being able to bring the unit in and out of the parks. 

    I hope that this gave you a bit of guidance, Hali! 

    See you real soon!
