    we have 2 people in our group who have either knee or ancle problems is there a way to reserve a wheel chair?

    Welcome to planDisney Gerald, and thanks for swinging by with your question. 

    There are a lot of miles logged on my visits to the Walt Disney World Resort. If you are visiting with a guest who has mobility issues getting the assistance of a wheelchair is always important. Knowing where they are located is also important. The first rule of wheelchair rentals I always mention is that they are first come first serve. Unfortunately, reservations are not accepted, and the guest renting the wheelchair must be 18 years of age, and a photo ID is required. You are also welcome to bring your own wheelchair for use throughout your stay as well. You can rent them daily at each park's designated rental locations which I will mention later. If you are park hopping you cannot remove the wheelchair from the destination it was rented from. And there is also a Disney-featured provider for guests who want to rent a mobility device. ScooterBug is a private mobility rental company where you can rent devices of all different types. From strollers, wheelchairs, and ECVs. 

    If you are just looking for the rentals from your Disney Destination each park has a specific location to visit upon arrival. Quantities are limited so please arrive with enough time to rent one for your loved one. When it comes to the rentals to can choose to do a daily rental or you can do what is called a length-of-stay rental. At the theme parks, daily rentals are $12 and the length of stay is $10 per day for multiple days. Pricing is subject to change. Length of stay rentals are transferable between Disney Theme Parks only. And may not be available during peak periods. Daily rentals are transferable between all locations. Magic Kingdom Park is always first on my lists so here it is again. The wheelchair rental locations are usually located at the front of the park and this is true for Magic Kingdom. When you enter right before you go underneath the Main Street Train Station, all the way to the right you will see the location for wheelchair rentals. In EPCOT the rental location is indeed also in the front but all the way to your left of Spaceship Earth. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is no different from the aforementioned parks your rental location is right at the front of the park but on your right immediately after you scan in at Garden Gate Gifts. I’d actually suggest entering if you have the option to the furthest right turnstile to avoid going against the crowd traffic. Last but not least Disney’s Hollywood Studios has the absolute coolest location of all to grab your rental from. Once you enter look for my pal Bo with his friendly smile and holding a soft drink. It’s a smiling cutout of a serviceman all the way to your right after the turnstiles. This location can’t be missed, it looks like a car service garage. At Oscar’s Super Service, you can rent and return your wheelchair when you are through for the day. 

    Visit us again at planDisney.com for any other planning needs. Enjoy your time in the parks and take your time spending it with each other. Don’t forget to try and act like you are 6 years old at least once on this trip. It is a highly recommended activity. 

    Have a magical day,
