Question DL with a Bum Foot

This is my Disney year! Went to Disney World in May and now a weekend trip to Disneyland coming up in November. However, I am dealing with a repetitive stress strain on a foot. (It can get so bad that the doc assisted me getting a temp handicap plaque for my car.) Working hard to get back to 100%, but if it's not, how does one go about renting a scooter at Disneyland-if they even rent them out?

So, a little research shows I can rent a ECV there. The interactive map isn't working correctly. Do they rent at the same place as the strollers?

I haven’t been to DL since a teenager but bet that ECV rental works similarly there as at WDW.

In short, you’ll pay far more for one rented from Disney than for one from a non-Disney rental agency.

Unless someone with DL scooter rental experience posts, what I would do were I in your situation would be to check the Special Needs board here for names of the Disney-approved companies in Orlando. At least some may also have DL branches.

Being in that business, they may be able to suggest Anaheim rental agencies they know of, too, if they haven’t a DL branch.

Same as Cam on this one. Good healing for your foot!



Hope you find one that works well for you at a decent price.

Thank you for the info. While saving money would be nice, renting outside of the theme park presents the problem of having to transport the ECV.

Where are you staying?

Yes, the strollers and ECVs are in the same place. I'll see what I can find....

Staying at the Grand Californian. I'm willing to wait early to ensure an ECV, but want to make sure I'm waiting in the right spot. lol

Okay, so you can still rent an ECV from a non-Disney company, even staying at GCH, and THEY should be delivering it right to your hotel. That's how it works at WDW, anyway.

Google a little, find a couple of companies, and ask if they deliver right to GCH.

That is a BIG hotel. You may be doing a lot of walking just getting to and from your room. I would look into renting one from an off-site company for the length of your stay.


I looked through my pictures for the LIVE! Guide, and couldn't find one that showed the location of ECV rentals. I did see one that only showed the ECVs, and it looks like a separate place from the stroller rental. Will look a little more.

Wheelchair and stroller rentals appear to be in the same place on this map: https://disneyland.disney.go.com/med...18_reduced.pdf .

I didn't look for the DCA map.
