                                        Walker Mobility               Others

PRICE Our competitive rates give you the best service and the affordability you need. The other top Orlando scooter rental companies are priced higher than Walker Mobility.
DELIVERY We deliver and pick up your scooter, stroller or wheelchair to your hotel for FREE. It’s as easy as that. Our competitors charge a delivery fee, costing you time and money.
TURNING RADIUS Our three-wheeled scooters are specifically designed to help you navigate tight crowds and winding pathways in the area theme parks. Orlando’s top scooter rental companies sell four-wheel models limiting your agility. These scooters are much harder to drive!
MILEAGE Walker Mobility’s scooters last all day long—and if your battery does run out, we’ll get you a fully charged scooter in under an hour. Other companies can’t ensure the longevity of your battery, costing you valuable vacation time recharging your scooter.
DISNEY COMPATIBLE Walker Mobility works specifically with the theme parks, so help is never far away. Our scooters are also monorail, boat and bus friendly. Other companies rent scooters, but can’t provide you help while you’re inside the park. Also, their scooter models are not optimized to navigate the park, the boats, the monorail or the buses—a must-have to enjoy the parks.
EMERGENCY SERVICE Our on-site service gives you immediate access to our friendly customer service representatives, no matter where you are. We have extra scooters on-site, so you don’t have to wait for us to diagnose and fix any problems. You are on your way with a new scooter in no time! You may wait for hours for other companies to come diagnose and fix your scooter. You’ll wait and wait, and you’ll only get help if they are allowed on Disney property. If not, you could be waiting all day.

You can get a special price by booking your rental through our very own travel agent Mary Morales contact her for all the great discounts
