Strollers, Wheelchairs & More Services Offered by Disney

We already know so much about Disney World, and now you even have an idea of what to bring with you to the Happiest Place on Earth. In this guide, we will talk about which services are offered in all four theme parks. These services might make your visit easier than usual and can be extra useful in case of emergencies.

You don't want to or you don't have a stroller, but you are traveling with your kids? It's fine, you can rent one in every Disney park. Want one of those fancy electric vehicles to move around? Sure, you can rent one as well. What about a perfect place to take care of your babies, maybe give them a meal in peace and change their diapers? Each park has Baby Care Centers that we will talk about.

In this guide, you will learn more about these services in Disney World:

  • Strollers
  • Wheelchairs
  • ECVs
  • What to bring with you if you have small children & Baby Care Centers in Disney World

Strollers 

A lot of people go to Disney World with their kids. We all know that. You also know what this means, right? Lots and lots of strollers! Keep some things in mind if you have kids and you have some questions in mind regarding strollers and Disney:

  • You can bring your own stroller to Walt Disney World.
  • Your stroller cannot be larger than 31” (79 cm) in width and 52” (132cm) in length.
  • Stroller wagons are not permitted. Those are the strollers that look like a small truck and don’t have designated seats.
  • You can bring your stroller aboard Disney transportation, like buses and monorails. 
  • You can also rent a stroller inside any of the four Disney parks, with the single and double options available. A single stroller costs $15 for a full day, while a double stroller costs $31 for a full day. You can also rent a stroller for multiple days for a small discount.
  • You can rent a stroller right past the entrance, usually at specific locations with a big sign pointing to it. You can always check the My Disney Experience app for the exact locations, or ask a cast member. 
  • If you misplace your rented stroller, you can get another one, you just need to present your receipt. 
  • You can not leave a theme park with your rented stroller. If you are going to another Disney theme park (as a Park Hopper, for example), you will need to pick up a new stroller there. You won’t need to pay twice, though, just show your receipt and you are good to go.
  • You can’t enter rides and attractions with a stroller. Make sure to park them outside, usually at a designed place just for that. Also make sure to not let any valuables inside. Famvia never had any problems with items being stolen, but it is better to be safe than sorry. There is always the chance that someone might grab your stroller by mistake and take it somewhere else.

Wheelchairs & ECVs

Most rules for strollers also apply to wheelchairs and ECVs (Electric Conveyance Vehicles). You can rent those at the same place where you rent strollers, usually right by the park entrance.

You don’t know what an ECV is? They are small vehicles for one person only that resemble a scooter. You drive them around at low speeds and park it before entering any attraction. They also come with a small basket so you can store a few things there like snacks and drinks. 

Here’s what you need to know about wheelchairs and ECVs in Disney World:

  • You can bring your own wheelchair to Walt Disney World.
  • You can also rent a wheelchair in every Disney World theme park and Disney Springs. A single day costs $12. If you rent it for multiple days, the price decreases to $10 per day.
  • You can rent an ECV for $65 per day. A refundable $20 deposit is required to rent an ECV while inside Disney Parks. For Disney water parks and Disney Springs, the cost for the refundable deposit is $100. 
  • You cannot rent ECVs for multiple days, only single day rentals are available for those. 
  • You can, in fact, bring and use your own ECV in Walt Disney World.

Toddlers, Kids & Baby Care Centers

You can bring basically anything to Disney World so that your little ones have a great time. From a diaper bag to their favorite snacks, meals and outfits, everything is fair game. It’s like going out with them to the shopping mall or any other of their favorite places. Bring all the essentials so they enjoy the Happiest Place on Earth just as much as you do.

Few people know this, but all four Disney theme parks have Baby Care Centers which is a great option to take a break and feed your little ones. Those are usually located close to the entrance. In Magic Kingdom, for example, the Baby Care Center is located on Main Street, next to The Crystal Palace restaurant and the First Aid station. As always, the My Disney Experience app will give you the precise location. 

In these Baby Care Centers you have access to:

  • Private nursing rooms
  • Feeding areas with high chairs
  • Kitchen with a microwave
  • You can find stores on-site to buy baby food, diapers and anything else you might have forgotten to bring to Disney World.
  • Remember this: a child that gets separated from their parents and is missing will be escorted by a Cast Member to the Baby Care Center. 
  • Baby Care Centers are not available in Disney’s water parks or Disney Springs, but you can find baby changing stations in those places instead, which are located in most restrooms.

First Aid

Nobody wants to feel ill in the middle of a theme park, even less so during a vacation to Walt Disney World. We all know how it sucks. Still, it’s impossible to predict when we can have a major headache, or even if we just slip, fall and end up hurting our knees in the middle of Main Street in Magic Kingdom. Ouch.

It’s fine, Mickey Mouse has our safety and health in mind. Every single Disney World park has a First Aid station where you can find professional nurses that are ready to help you out in any way possible. In fact, they have much more than that, with beds and equipment that make the First Aid station look more like a mini-hospital.

  • Each First Aid is located in a different spot, depending on the theme park. Check the My Disney Experience app for a precise location. They are usually located next to the Guest Relations or the Baby Care Centers.
  • This is a complimentary service, which means that it’s free and you won’t spend a dime! If you are looking for a more specialized medication, though, you might be redirected to a gift shop. Still, things like Tylenol, cough drops, bandages, tissues and much more are completely free, as long as you need one or two. Need a bag full of Tylenol? Yeah, then you will need to pay for it, it only makes sense.
  • First aid stations can keep medications refrigerated for you in case you need it. So you just have fun in the park and come back here later to pick it up!

We hope you learned more about services offered by Disney World. As you can see, it's possible to rent strollers, wheelchairs and even lay down for a bit inside a First Aid station if you are not feeling well. Disney World wants you to have fun, and it offers several services so you can have the time of your life.
