    Since I'm not staying at a Disney Resort, I understand that I have the opportunity to rent an ECV outside the park. How early do you recommend I go to get the rental, since they do not take reservations & availability is on a 1st come basis week.

    Howdy Beatrice!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    Planning a visit to “The Most Magical Place on Earth” is always filled with unforgettable memories!  The Walt Disney World Resort makes it easy for everyone to have a vacation filled with “Memories to Last a Lifetime!”  I see that you will need to rent an ECV during your Walt Disney World Resort visit!  ECV rentals are on a first-come, first-served basis, and there is no way to know at what time the ECV rentals will be gone for the day.  To ensure you can obtain an ECV rental, I recommend arriving as early as possible.  I have placed a link to the ECV rental information in the highlighted text above so that you can scan through current pricing and learn about other details for renting an ECV.

    To capture all of your memories and bring them home with you, I recommend adding Memory Maker to your reservation!  With Memory Maker, you will be able to capture an unlimited amount of photos at one great price, and everyone can be in the photo!  Memory Maker allows you to capture pictures on certain attractions, photos with the Disney PhotoPass Photographers, and so much more!  With Memory Maker, you don’t have to be behind the camera, and you can be in the picture!  If you decide to add Memory Maker to your vacation, take a moment to ask the Disney PhotoPass Photographers if they offer Magic Shots!  Magic Shots are so much fun, and the best part is that you never know who might pop into the photo with you!

    As you continue to plan your visit to Neverland, check the Disney Park Blog for all the things to see and do in February!  The Disney Parks Blog is constantly announcing new and exciting things almost daily!  To stay informed of all the festivities for the Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, go to “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and “Sign Up!”

    If you have any more questions as you continue to plan your visit to Neverland, please come back to planDisney!  We look forward to hEARing from you again, Beatrice!

    See Ya Real Soon,
