If you need to rent a wheelchair for any reason, Disneyland offers manual wheelchair rentals as well as electronic conveyance vehicle rentals (otherwise known as ECV; just a fancy name for a power wheelchair).
Manual wheelchairs allow you to push yourself or have someone push you. Electronic conveyance vehicles (ECV) are battery operated and let you operate it independently. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of wheelchairs.
IMPORTANT: Disneyland Resort wheelchair rentals cannot be reserved in advance. Because they can sell out rather quickly, it is advised to arrive at the park early in the morning to secure a wheelchair, especially if it’s a busy time of year.
You can rent wheelchairs and ECV’s just outside and to the right of the Disneyland park entrance gates. Look for signs that say “Stroller Rentals”. If you have a walker with you, a cast member is able to store it for you until you return the rented wheelchair.
Find the wheelchair and stroller rental shop to the east (right side) of the entrance to Disneyland.

If you have small children, Disneyland offers convenient stroller rentals. There are two sizes you can choose from: a single stroller (holds one child) or a double stroller (holds 2 children).
- Single Stroller – $15 per day
- Double Stroller – $35 per day
Using a Stroller as a Wheelchair
If you need to use your own stroller or a stroller rental as a wheelchair for your child, visit City Hall inside Disneyland or any Guest Services kiosk.
You will be asked to provide some information to the cast member so they can have a better understanding of your child’s needs (nothing invasive and requires no paperwork or proof).
Then you will be given a red tag to put on your stroller so all cast members will know it is being used as a wheelchair.
If you need a wheelchair for use outside of the Disneyland Resort, you can rent electronic scooters and wheelchairs from other off-site locations.
Some hotels across from Disneyland (on Harbor Blvd) offer wheelchair rentals. Some services will even deliver it directly to your hotel room for your convenience.
Advantages to renting off-site include: more reasonable prices, may work better when renting for multiple vacation days, or if you plan to travel outside of Disney’s property.
Disability Access Service
For those with special health needs, Disneyland provides a unique service that can help you get the most out of your trip. For more information, click here.
As you can see, Disneyland’s rental system is pretty straightforward and easy to navigate. It’s also not too pricey.
Special Note: If you are bringing your own power wheelchair and your battery happens to run down, Disney will let you charge your wheelchair at the Stroller and Wheelchair Rental station. Please bring your own power cord.
Some people claim they’ve been able to charge their wheelchair at other places around the park, but Disney doesn’t encourage this.
