Need some help. Planning on renting an electric scooter at DL.. If we leave the park to go back to the hotel for a rest, can we pick the scooter back up with out an additional fee? How long do they stay charged.. ? Anyone with experience or info is appreciated

@@carminaire. Long time scooter user here. Do not rent from apple. Poorly maintained equipment and no customer service when problems arrive. DL ECVs are tanks and hard to maneuver in tight spaces (4wheels as opposed to 3 on most rentals). Not sure but I don't think you can take DL ECVs out of the esplanade as in to DTD. Having rented from multiple places I've settled on deckerts for the best customer service and equipment. They deliver and p/u at your hotel. Have had multiple incidents with apple scooters not holding a charge all day. Old batteries. Deckerts has newer equip and have always gone from open to close and even a midday trip back to hotel on katella with juice left over. DM me if you have more questions You can drive scooter right into your hotel room for overnight charging - disneybob49  874.2 #218 5:57PM
Thank you for all the detailed info! This was VERY helpful !  - carminaire  857.7 #224 9:10PM
From what I know, you can leave it and they will charge it.  Even if you rent outside of the park, I believe they can store and charge it.  My mom has rented both ways (in and outside of the park) and has never had an issue with it staying charged all day.   - Linzee  1380.4 #136 9:42PM
I would check about getting the scooter back with or without incurring an extra cost or fee; try calling the Disney Travel Co. number. I haven't used an in parks scooter in years because you can only use them between the two parks and no DTD! I rent my scooter from Deckert Surgical  Co. in Santa Ana! The delivery and pickup are free from your hotel (just tell them where you are staying) and the rates are competitive; $40 a day and they only charged me a onetime fee of $5 for cane holder on the back of the scooter... Most rental places do have storage for canes and in my case, my crutches. They have specials during non-peak stays, and the company and equipment were very reliable, plus they were recommended to me by a CM from the Disney Travel Co. And you can get a 5% discount after your 1st trip! I'll check if you can get the discount every time like a loyalty program, or just a one time offer, after our first trip! Good luck, be safe, & have fun on your next trip! We'll be there in 12 days!!! πŸ˜»πŸ˜πŸ˜»πŸ˜πŸ˜»πŸŽ‰ - Catski23  29.3 #6287 10:49PM
Catski23 Deckerts is the best!!  We used a bungee cord to hold crutches before but $5 doesn't seem bad either.   - Linzee  1380.4 #136 10:51PM
Yes, Linzee! It was a small price to pay, but be sure to ask for a cane holder if you have crutches because I made the mistake of asking for a crutch holder last trip and the 2 individual cylinder holders were to narrow to put a crutch in... I called Deckert and they were they to switch it out with a cane holder in about 15 min. including navigating the GC Hotel the week before Christmas and all of the property's crowds! It looks like a large, tall golf bag, but made out of some sort of PVC/plastic material. Saved so much time and effort and no one in my family had to carry my crutches. A great sense of freedom and independence. 😍😘😻 - Catski23  29.3 #6287 10:59PM
We stayed at paradise pier motel and my husband rent from them it was great we took it in the room with us it was 40$ a day  - Disneydollarpam  59.0 #4581 6:39PM
Update... We rented from DL first thing in the morning. Husband was satisfied with the comfort and maneuverability . Held a charge all day and we could park it most anywhere and retrieve it when needed( or return to rental area and keep key to continue use age ) easy and made his trip 100% more enjoyable. We also utilized the disabled "fast pass "system. Smooth in DL , not so great in DCA. - carminaire  857.7 #224 8:29PM
