You can rent wheelchairs or scooters to move around Disney World. Mom had one in the hotel
I also rented a scooter in 2013. I picked it up at the bell captain desk. I was to return it in the morning when I left. The buses on Disney DO have places for scooters or wheelchairs. So it is quite easy to get to the various parks
However the scooter gave out in the middle of Downtown Disney and had to be pushed to the bus. Then they gave me a wheelchair at the hotel but would not push it for me. I called them on the phone, but their office had closed for the night. When I called in the morning they said they would refund my money.
Travelling with a person with physical disabilities can be tricky especially if you need to have a wheelchair or scooter. Fortunately Liz's Dad travels with his own scooter so we didn't have to worry about renting one. We did inquire about Disney's wheelchair and scooter rentals by calling (407) 824-2222.
Wheelchairsare $10 per day (There is a $100 deposit charged to your credit card per unit rented.) and the electric scooters are $45 per day, with a $20 refundable deposit ($100 at Downtown Disney). There are rental locations at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and the Marketplace.
**There might not always be a scooter available dur to high demand so go early to reserve one or call guset relations ahead of time.**
