    How and when do I rent my scooter/wheelchair, do I need a special pass that informs that I have had a stroke?

    Hi Mark! 

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! You can rent an ECV or wheelchair at any of the Walt Disney World parks, water parks or Disney Springs. You do not need to show any documentation to rent an ECV or wheelchair, they are available to any guest who may need them. The daily rentals at the park are for the day only and you can transfer the ECV from one location to the other. For example, if you rented the ECV at Magic Kingdom, then park hopped over to Epcot, you could return it at the end of day at Epcot. If you will need help getting around your resort as well, I recommend renting a scooter for the length of your stay through one of these recommended companies:

    Buena Vista Scooter Rentals: (866) 484-4797
    Best Price Scooters and Strollers: (866) 866-3434
    Apple Scooter: (800) 701-1971
    ScooterBug: (800) 726-8284

    My mom used Buena Vista Scooter Rental for her entire visit and had a great experience. It made getting around the resort, getting to the park and navigating the park seamless.
