    My mom wants to bring her own scooter instead of renting one. Is there a place in Magic Kingdom she can plug it in if the battery starts to die? Thanks!

    Hi there, Joy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for stopping by and allowing us to help you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    I think it's an excellent idea for your mother to bring her own Electronic Conveyance Vehicle (ECV) with her if she has one! I always recommend Guests with mobility disabilities bring their own mobility devices whenever possible. This allows Guests to be more comfortable during their vacation instead of attempting to learn the controls on an all-new ECV or other mobility devices. I know I definitively prefer my own reliable wheelchair when trying to navigate the parks! 

    Generally speaking, the majority of ECVs should maintain a charge for approximately 6-8 hours of use whenever fully charged. Many Guests ultimately find that they do not need to charge their ECVs while visiting the parks due to this fact. If your mother is concerned with using up her ECV battery during her visit, I would recommend being sure to turn off her ECV whenever she is not actively moving. This will help preserve the battery life and keep her ECV going for as long as possible! However, if she does end up needing to charge her ECV in Magic Kingdom, she can always locate one of the many outlets positioned throughout the park. There are outlets available in Tomorrowland in the hallway next to the restroom in Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, in Fantasyland near the Tangled-themed restrooms which are disguised in the fake tree stumps in this area, and in Liberty Square at Columbia Harbor House next to their tables. The last option is perfect for charging while grabbing a quick bite to eat!

    Hopefully, this information will help you and your mother have a perfectly magical vacation!
