    So excited! I received my Magic Bands and we are just a few weeks from our trip. We are renting an ECV from one of the companies that you recommended and my question is what to expect when trying to board and maneuver with it on Disney transportation.

    Hello Jennifer!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week.

    When using an ECV with Disney Transportation it takes a little bit longer to load in, but the Cast Members are very helpful and will guide you along the process. Usually the buses will lower or extend a ramp out of the back doors that open in the middle of the vehicle. Then you are directed to drive the ECV onto the bus and park in the designated area. You then put on the brakes or in some cases there are straps or restraints to hold in the scooter. When debarring, the process is similar, just in reverse. After a few times you will be a pro!

    I hope this helps and please let me know if you need anything else as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
