    I’m thinking of renting a scooter for the 4 days. My reservation is in Port Orleans French Qtr. river view room. Is there room for the scooter in the room or will we be tripping over it? Thank you. ,

    Welcome to planDisney, Virginia!

    With warm days and crisp evenings, November is a great time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! And... you're just in time to catch the last few days of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! If you're planning to visit EPCOT, make sure to stop and visit a few of the specialty booths around the World Showcase.

    Now, Virginia, in order to enjoy the Walt Disney World Resort, let's talk about your mobility needs and storage. The amount of space the scooter takes up in the room and how much extra space you'll have depends on a few factors including the number of guests in your room and how much luggage you'll have in tow. For example, if you only have two guests in your room, I think you'll find the space adequate for your scooter. If you have four guests and you're planning to spend a lot of time in your room, you might find it a hindrance. The last time I stayed at Disney's Port Orleans Resort- French Quarter I had two adults, two small children and a double stroller in the room. While the double stroller folded up and is smaller in size than a scooter, we were still able to walk around with ease, but each family is different.

    Virginia, another option you may want to consider is a daily rental at the theme park. For guests who are able to walk short distances and/or want to preserve space in their Disney Resorts Collection hotel room, renting an ECV at the beginning of your theme park day and then returning the rental before heading out for the night might be a better option. If this is of interest, you can find ECV rentals at the following locations (all at or close to the entrance):

       Disney's Animal KingdomTheme Park- Garden Gate Gifts
       Disney's Hollywood Studios- Oscar's Super Service
       EPCOT- Epcot Main Entrance
       EPCOT- International Gateway
       Magic Kingdom Park- Entrance

    Virginia, I hope this helps as you're deciding the best path to take to enjoy your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back to your new friends hEAR at planDisney.

    Wishing you a pixie dusted stay,
