    Can I take a wheelchair that I rent from Disneyland back across the street to my motel for a nap then come back in the evening. Leaving it there at the end of the night

    Hi Desiree!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so glad that you found us hEAR. I'm happy to be your planEAR today!

    This is a great question. Disneyland Resort offers wheelchairs, ECV, and strollers as daily rentals on a first-come, first-served basis. Sadly these rentals are to remain within the "Disneyland bubble" of everything inside the security zone, which includes Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, and the Downtown Disney District. Guests using these rollable rentals will be stopped by Security, even if they are staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels that's connected to or steps away from the Downtown Disney District.

    I think your best bet would be to rent a wheelchair from a third-party rental company in the Anaheim area, one that would deliver the wheelchair to your hotel and pick it back up from there. This way you'd also have it for the journey to the parks each morning and back to your hotel home at night. Disneyland actually has a Featured Provider of rentals, Scooterbug Anaheim. I've used their service to rent a stroller before and I was very happy with the ease at booking the reservation and also the quality and cleanliness of the equipment I borrowed. Setting up a rental before your arrival will also ensure that it's available on the days you'd need it. Their phone number is (800) 726-8284, and you can find a bit more information about them on the bottom part of the wheelchair rental page.

    Be sure to double-check which attractions allow you to stay in your chair, Desiree, vs. the ones where you must transfer to an individual ride vehicle. And also look into the Disability Access Service, also known as DAS, while you're still in your planning stage. Guests seeking to qualify for DAS can now have a virtual interview up to 30 days before their arrival so they can start their Disney day by playing right away vs. standing in line to request this assistance.

    I hope that this helped to better plan your upcoming Disney days, Desiree! Be sure to check out the official planDisney Instagram account where we're sharing all kinds of tips and tricks. We even just launched the brand new planDisney Podcast that you can both listen to and watch! And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
