    My husband will need an electric wheelchair while we are visiting Disneyland. Is this available? Do we need to reserve one in advance? What is the cost to rent one?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lenora!

    It's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious that you've found us here with your question while you plan your Jolly Holiday to The Happiest Place On Earth this weekend! I'm here to give you practically perfect advice on making your visit run as smoothly and comfortably as possible! Because at the Disneyland Resort, everyone is welcome with open arms and a spoonful of sugar.

    Renting a wheelchair or ECV (Electric Convenience Vehicle) scooter is a great option for many guests. You can easily rent one right outside the theme park entrance. The rental location is situated just east of the Disneyland Park Main Entrance. Just a heads up, Lenora: they can't be reserved in advance, so arriving early is best. I suggest arriving about 30 minutes before the parks open. When you rent a manual wheelchair or an ECV, you make a $20 deposit on top of the rental fee. At the time that I am writing this, manual wheelchairs can be rented for $15  per day, and ECV rental is $60 per day. But Lenora, remember that prices can change at any time. 

    Lenora, I also want to make sure you've heard of the Disability Access Service (DAS)! This service is specifically designed for guests who need help waiting in regular queues and may require special consideration for access to the attractions. With the DAS, you can skip the long lines and return when the wait is shorter. There's no need for a doctor's note – just hop onto a live video chat to pre-register between 2 and 30 days before your visit. 

    If you prefer to call Disability Services directly, their phone number is (407) 560-2547, or you can email them at disability.services@disneyland.com. They're like Disney's real-life fairy godmothers, always ready to help.

    You can also request DAS in person at any Guest Service Desk at the Resort. Pro tip: I find that Chamber of Commerce on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure Park tends to have the shortest wait times!

    Lenora, with these tips in mind, you're ready to have a magical time at the Happiest Place On Earth! I'm as excited as you are for your visit in just a few short days - the countdown is on! Feel free to message me directly for a quicker response. I'm here to give you my best tips and tricks to make your visit as magical as can be! 

    See ya real soon,
