    Does Disney rent a wheelchair if so do I need to make a reservation and what is the cost

    Hello, Cynthia. I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney with your question. 

    A few years ago, my daughter had broken her foot right before our trip to Walt Disney World. I was unsure about how the trip would go with renting a wheelchair while we were there, but it was actually great. You will be able to rent a wheelchair at all of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Water Parks and at Disney Springs. Wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and there is currently not a way to make a reservation for one. With that being said, there always seems to be so many for rent that I don't think you'll have an issue securing one. At the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, you can rent a wheelchair for $12.00 per day. If you want to do a length of stay rental and save some time and money you can prepay for the time you're there and pay $10.00 a day. This is what we did and it really did work out well. After the initial purchase, each morning we just showed our receipt to the Cast Member handing out the wheelchairs and off we went. We didn't have to stand in line, pay and then wait for the chair. It's really convenient. If you want to rent a wheelchair at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park or at Disney Springs you can do this but it will require a $100 deposit and the cost of the rental which is $12. This is to ensure that you'll bring the wheelchair back when you are finished with it. The wheelchair rental locations will be very close to the entrance of each theme park as soon as you are inside the gates, you won't miss it. You are also welcome to bring a wheelchair from home if you would rather. If you are park hopping, which is visiting more than one Walt Disney World Theme Park in a day and opt for the daily rental, you only have to pay at the first park of the day. Hang on to your receipt and show the Cast Member at the second park and they'll set you right up. 

    Cynthia, I hope this helps ease your mind about renting a wheelchair while you are visiting Walt Disney World. The process is a breeze and it's relatively inexpensive for what it is. Even though the circumstances weren't the best, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed being pushed around that vacation and brings it up every time we are there since then. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back and ask me

    Have fun!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
