Military Discounts on Scooter Rentals at Walt Disney World

WDW-Scooters-Military-DiscountWounded Warriors and Disabled Veterans are able to get military discounts on Mobility Scooters (ECVs) Rentals for their vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Walt Disney World rents scooters, but only in the theme parks, for use in the parks!

If you’ll be needing one for your whole vacation you will need to rent from an independent company. You will also find that these companies are comparatively cheaper than Disney.


The scooter rental company that Military Disney Tips recommends is Amusement Park Rentals.

They serve all hotels in the Central Florida Attraction Area. So you can use this service at any Walt Disney World resort!

They proudly offer a 10% military discount. You can reserve on their website using the 10MILITARY discount code.

Their prices are reasonable, unlike Disney Worlds and you’ll have the scooter 24/7.


The Disney World Company also rents Wheel Chairs and ECVs at their theme parks and Downtown Disney for the following prices:

  • Wheelchairs are $12.00 per day in all four theme parks
  • Wheelchairs are $12.00 per day at Disney Springs plus a $100.00 refundable deposit
  • ECVs (Scooters) are $50.00 per day at the four theme parks plus a $20.00 refundable deposit
  • ECVs (Scooters) are $50.00 per day at Disney Springs plus a $100.00 refundable deposit

Note: You must first get to the theme park in order to rent Disney’s ECVs.


For much more information for those who are mobility challenged see Disney Theme Park Accommodations for Guests with DisABILITIES and also these pages on mobility page and their ECV FAQ.

  1. Steve – Any word on when we might expect an announcement for 2016 room and ticket discounts? we have room reservations on 6 Jan 2016 and have been waiting to hopefully solidify a mil discount. Our local MWR gal thinks late Nov….eeeks…she cant be correct….can she? thanks for keeping us posted

    Funny thing is we went to WDW first week of Oct 2014 and we had to wait it out till 2015 discounts were announced. Here we go again!

    • Hey Jan,

      I think Late Oct or 1 Nov will be when tickets are available. Perhaps your local rep is confused…

      I have not heard anything else from Disney re an announcement date and if I had I couldn’t tell you until the actual date 😉

      But I’m hoping to hear something in the 2 to 4 week timeframe. Fingers crossed.

  2. You can rent a wheelchair at any of the Disney parks on a multi-day base of $10 a day (which saves $2 a day doing it individually). While it can’t leave the park, you can still park hop and pick one up at the next park merely by showing your receipt.

    If you can walk, but need a wheelchair because you can’t stand or walk for long periods of time (like me), this is worth looking into. The scooter rental companies offer lower prices than Disney on scooters, but I haven’t found one yet that offers a lower price on wheelchairs. Only disadvantage is that with the Disney, you can’t take it to your resort.
