    Hi! We are going to be in DW for 3 weeks the end of this year and my mom is coming along and may require a scooter or some sort. She will have a letter from her doctor for it. Do you happen to know if they are available for rent and if so, the cost?

    Hi Laura!
     
    Renting an scooter/Electronic Convenience Vehicle at the Walt Disney World resort has its advantages and conversely, its disadvantages.  You are able to rent them for a cost of $70 per day with $20 refundable deposit.  You can pick one up at the stroller/wheelchair rental area at each of the major theme parks and Downtown Disney (Wheelchairs nor ECV's are available for rent at the water parks).  Should your ECV require maintenance during a park visit, you will be given one on the spot.  Disadvantages include having to leave the scooter at the park gate; you cannot leave the theme parks with the rented scooter.  All rental ECV's are set to slow speed, and it cannot be modified.
     
    Your best bet would be to rent from an outside vendor such as Walker Mobility or Buena Vista Scooters.  They will deliver the ECV to your resort room, and have pricing that covers length of stay.  These ECV's can work with variable speed settings, and are great to have on hand at Disney's expansive resorts.  You can check out their pricing by looking on their respective websites.
     
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
