Disney Confirms Scooterbug as Exclusive Stroller and ECV Vendor
In the wake of Disney’s announcement that resorts will no longer accept third party stroller and ECV drop off’s for guests, we have some great news! Disney has just confirmed that they will work exclusively with Scooterbug for mobility rentals.
It has become common practice for guests to reserve strollers and mobility devices to be delivered for a time just prior to their actual resort arrival. This ensures that as soon as they reach their resort, the equipment they require will be readily available.
Last week’s announcement caused a bit of a stir due to the added inconvenience guests would now be faced with. However, the announcement that Disney will still accept drop-offs from Scooterbug is sure to bring relief to many travelers!
Upon reviewing Scooterbug’s website, you’ll find their rental offerings include both seated and standing ECV’s (scooters), wheelchairs, AND strollers. All of their equipment at the time this article was written include “Free Drop-ff and Pick-up”.
While Scooterbug does not seem to offer as wide of a stroller selection as other vendors, you’ll find the basics with the added convenience of a Disney World Resort drop off. It also appears that the company does not include the same accessories that other stroller rental companies have such as rain covers and complimentary cooler bags. However, upon speaking with a Scooterbug representative, we were told that “Good things will be happening” and they are looking into acquiring some new strollers.
Guests are welcome to continue to rent equipment from other off-site vendors however, Disney will not accept the drop-offs themselves. The guest must be available to meet the vendor in person.
