Cheapest may be to rent at home and bring with you.

At wdw best price mobility is no longer a bargain . They sold to another company.

Gold seems more affordable but are not wdw approved and you must meet them with the scooter . I like to use an approved service so I am using Buena vista . It is located on boardwalk.


I had a bad experience when best price last year .

I think in our experience Buena Vista was the best deal. They offered a discount too IIRC for DVC.

We had less than stellar scooters with Apple. They were cheap and responsive to our issues, but taking time out to meet and such (and being run over with the throttle stuck) wasn't much fun.

Buena Vista scooters is my go to and so easy for resort P/U & D/O.

I think they discount with mention of allears.net at least they did in May 2019.

Personally I would modify this to best deal. You donít want cheap if itís not going to be reliable, and what you want is the best deal on a reliable scooter.

I have friends that have used Buena Vista and have never had a complaint, but I donít know if itís the best deal going

So disappointed to hear that Best Price Mobility has been sold - I cannot say enough good things about their customer service in the past.

I guess I will be looking at Buena Vista this year.

I used Gold Mobility when I broke my foot and found them to be the cheapest. They had brand new scooters and were great! They brought the scooter to you and drop off was at the resort. I highly recommend that company.

We have friends who have been very satisfied with Gold. They do trick out their scooters with extra like cup holders and phone holders. I was mocking those for my friend until I noticed just how handy they were - especially the cell phone holder while using the Disney Parks app.

I also like that they use Pride Victory 10s and have a recent fleet.

I have to say, comparing Gold's website and offerings with the four Disney preferred websites, Gold seems to have the best game in town. Excellent information, upgraded models with longer battery life, well laid out website. They also say the cycle t through their fleet every six months. I'm certain that when I rented from Apple the one time I needed an ECV, that thing was at least 1-2 years old. Worked fine, but definitely used.

We always go with Buena Vista now. We had issues with poorly a maintained scooter from another vendor and lost 3 hours waiting for it to be replaced. The scooters from Buena Vista have always been in good repair and they give discounts to DVC and returning customers.
