    My husband and I would like to visit the animal kingdom park. We both have some problems with walking. Are there scooters available for us to rent for use in the park? Also what would we do with them while we went on a ride? Thanks, Teresa

    Welcome Home, Teresa!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am thrilled to answer your terrific question about Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. You will be happy to know that ECV rentals are available at all Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs.

    As of July 2017, it will cost you $50 per day to rent an ECV at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park (a refundable $20 deposit is required at all theme parks). If you plan on park hopping, daily rentals are transferable between all theme parks and Disney Springs.

    Teresa, Walt Disney World Resort prides itself in being accommodating for Guests with mobility disabilities. Many attractions allow Guests to remain on their ECVs while experiencing them.

    For those attractions in which you will need to transfer to a wheelchair (provided at the attraction), or transfer directly into the ride vehicle itself, there are convenient areas in which you may leave your ECV and retrieve it immediately after you have enjoyed the attraction. This fantastic page, Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities, details the many access categories at each of the 4 Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.

    Did You Know? In addition to the ECVs available for rental directly through Walt Disney World Resort, several local companies offer ECV rentals and can even deliver your rental directly to your Disney Resort hotel. Please visit the ECV Rentals page for a list of these providers.

    Teresa, I wish you and your husband a magical vacation. Please visit us again if you have any more questions!
