    We need to rent a scooter.Shes staying with us at fort wilderness & going to animal kingdom with us.It says we cant use the scooter at fort wilderness.If it’s delivered to the resort from an offsite company, hows it gotten from the cabin to ferry

    Howdy, Amanda, and welcome to planDisney! You'll be circling the wagons at Walt Disney World Resort any day now, so let's talk about getting around with ease during your stay. Yee-haw!

    When it comes to renting Electronic Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs), Disney's Featured Provider, ScooterBug, is your best bet. They are the only company that can leave the ECV at Bell Services before your arrival. You must be present for delivery and pickup if you choose another vendor. So, my first tip is to opt for ScooterBug to streamline your experience.

    I chatted with a rootin-tootin Cast Member at The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort who said ECVs can be used throughout the property. Toy scooters are not allowed, which sometimes leads to confusion. She said as long as the guest keeps the ECV on the sidewalks, she can cruise anywhere she likes! 

    Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort offers an internal shuttle service, and I'm happy to let you know those buses can accommodate up to two ECVs. This is the best way for your guest to get from your cabin to the boats or the central bus station. Disney's complimentary bus service is the only way to get to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, while the water taxi will take you to Magic Kingdom Park. 

    My final suggestion is to look over the Services for Guests with Mobility Needs on the website. You can learn about attraction and parking policies to prepare you for a magical visit. I used a wheelchair at Walt Disney World a few years ago and was amazed at how easy it was. I learned to ask Cast Members at the attraction entrances for information about loading and parking my wheelchair because procedures can vary. You're going to have a fabulous time!

    Amanda, I hope you have fun around the campfire during your stay. Remember to visit Chip 'n' Dale to roast some marshmallows! Please stop by planDisney anytime.

    Magic awaits,
