Starting November 1, Disney will only allow approved companies to drop off or pick up scooters at the Bell Stand or Front Desk. (Meaning, the scooter is waiting for guests when they arrive, and guests can drop it off there when they check out at the end of their stay.)
The list of scooter rental places approved has not been announced; however, it does appear that Buena Vista Scooters is an approved company.
One company that does not appear to be approved but is prevalent in the Orlando area is Walker Mobility Scooter Rentals. Walker will still be able to provide scooters by doing a meet-and-greet style pick up and drop off. Walker will require a guest’s flight information, as well as cell phone number. At their resorts guests must meet a Walker representative to take receipt of the scooter and to return it prior to their departure. To be clear, Disney cast members will not assist with the rental process by temporarily storing scooters from Walker Mobility or other “unapproved” vendors.
We’ll keep you posted as more news comes out.
