Mobile Wheelchair advice Disney and US

Sat in Gatwick waiting for our flight to florida and my daughters osgood schlatter's has decided to really flare up, I have just booked assistance to help her to the gate as she is really suffering this morning but its made me think that she is really likely to struggle a lot round the parks over the next 18 days so was thinking a wheelchair to cut down on the amount of walking about she will have to do might be really helpful but I have no experience of this
We have 6 nights booked at the portofino bay then 12 at old key west so any advise on where to hire one, costs, whether it's a good idea etc would be much appreciated

Try Randys mobility you can reserve on line now
They don’t open till 8/30 Florida time but you should be able to reserve and phone to confirm etc on arrival they deliver to Disney and pick up

I have no idea if they are any good - but when driving round the Disney road system on various visits we have very frequently seen trucks for Buena Vista Scooter Rentals driving round. They clearly have a pretty big operation & deliver to Disney hotels.

Phone number is 407-331-9147 & they open at 8am local time.

I have used Orlando Medical Rentals orlandomedicalrentals/ twice now and they have been great

Or

Gateway rentals gateway-rentals/

Both of these companies are much cheaper than hiring from the parks.
They drop off & collect too.

Beuna Vista Scooter user. You can do a split stay so have one for your first and one for your second stay so no need to transport between the two resorts.
