Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- My husband will be only a few months post-op from surgery on his Achilles/heel. Is there a place we can rent a wheelchair for him for the week?
- - Asked by Beth from Ohio on 12/19/2012
- Hi Beth,
Guests visiting the theme parks at Walt Disney World can rent a wheelchair for $12 per day for a single day or for $10 per day for the length of your stay. However, this arrangement only makes sense if you don't anticipate needing the wheelchair outside the theme parks.
For your husband, you may want to consider renting a wheelchair from a private company. Then you will have access to the wheelchair 24/7 throughout your vacation. Here are some of the local companies that rent wheelchairs to guests visiting Walt Disney World:
Buena Vista Scooter Rentals (407) 938-0349
CARE Medical Equipment (800) 741-2282
Walker Mobility (888) 726-6837
Speak to these companies directly to determine rental rates and delivery/return procedures.
Best wishes to your husband with regard to his surgery. I hope he has a speedy recovery.
