    Can I use Disney gift cards to pay for ECV rentals?

    Hey there Amanda and welcome to planDisney!

    Disney Gift Cards are an absolute lifesaver on any trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. Many a wallet has been saved by their magical budgeting properties and yours is no different. You can absolutely rent your Electric Conveyance Vehicle or ECV with a gift card. Just stop at the Rental Location in your Disney Park of choice and have at it! Take note that you can only use your ECV in the location you rented it from. If you change locations, you'll have to return it and get a new one at your next stop. For example, you've rented an ECV and rolled all over Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park stopping only to trek through the savannas on Kilimanjaro Safaris and spot the yeti on Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. Now you're ready to see what the magic mountains of Magic Kingdom Park have to offer. Return that ECV and get a new one when you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park. Pro-tip: You only have to pay once for the entire day. Hang on to your receipt to show the Cast Member at the next stop!

    If you feel like you'll need that ECV all over the Walt Disney World Resort, I'd suggest renting one from an offsite provider like Scooterbug. You can rent your ECV for the full length of your stay, keep it with you in your room, and the best part is it's accommodated on all modes of Disney Transportation including the Disney Skyliner. You'll ride comfortably your entire trip!

    Amanda, I hope I've been able to help you today. Now if you see me in September at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, don't judge me too harshly ok?! 2 cocktails and 2 different foods from 4 different booths is a perfectly acceptable vacation strategy. Hopefully, they'll release this year's dates soon!

    Happy planning!
