    My husband and I are taking our 2 grandsons and their parents to DW, but are sure we can’t keep up with our mobility issues (of which 75-76 yr arthritis is the least). Would it be appropriate for us both to rent scooters to keep up?

    Hello there, Carol!

    I’m so glad that you stopped by to ask me your question. Being able to get around the theme parks and spend time with those that you love the most is very important while at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Luckily, you won’t have to miss out on any of those first character hugs and squeals of laughter. There are accommodations at Walt Disney World to help you do just that. 

    As with anything, it is totally up to you to decide if you want to rent an Electric Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs) for your theme park days. However, they will definitely help you keep up with your grandsons, especially if they’re as boisterous and happy-go-lucky as my two boys are. All four theme parks, Disney Springs, Disney’s BoardWalk, and other areas around property are pretty vast. By foot, at Magic Kingdom Park, you can get from Frontierland to Tomorrowland in about ten minutes if you’re really hustling. So, riding through the theme parks in ECVs may be better on your joints and better to keep up with your little ones. 

    If you’d like to rent ECVs through Walt Disney World, you will find rental stations at the entrances of each theme park. They’re rented out on a first-come, first-served basis. Feel free to rent a scooter from a third-party company like ScooterBug as well—or even bring your own! If you want more information about the services that are available to you, check out the Walt Disney World website’s Services for Guests with Mobility Needs. You can also email them at disability.services@disneyparks.com to get a more personalized answer to your questions. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: You can find a list of Walt Disney World attractions here that you and your husband can ride even without transferring out of your ECVs. 

    Carol, if you have any other questions about your upcoming vacation (it’ll be here before you know it!), revisit us here at planDisney. I’d love to share more tips and tricks with you. See you real soon!

    Magic always,
