    Since wheel chairs are cheaper to rent and can hold an 8 year old, do you see a problem with wanting to rent a chair instead of a stroller to push around tired kids ages 3,5,8?

    Hi Tammy!  There are only a limited amount of wheelchairs available at all of the parks for rental.  It would be a shame for anyone to rent one of these to simply use for their children when there is an ample supply of strollers for you to use.  The strollers are designed for several children to fit comfortably and safely and thus the higher price. The wheelchairs are strictly for one person

    You can get a length of stay option for the strollers and you can also buy an inexpensive umbrella stroller when you are there at most gift shops for about $50.  Your children can take turns using this and if you choose not to take it home you can donate it to your resort in case they have an emergency use for it in the future.

    You won't be prevented from renting a wheelchair but it would be frowned upon for any use beyond a medical need.
