Hello Disney lovers. We here at beyondthecastleblog.com have the latest on the Disney World scooter policy controversy. According to The DIS Unplugged podcast, Disney has limited the providers of scooters that can deliver a scooter to your resort room. You can still rent your scooter from any provider you would like. The only difference now is that if you rent a scooter from a non-approved vendor, you will have to be present at the time of pick up. If you are not there at the time of delivery, Disney will confiscate it and charge the vendor a $75 fee. Just to reiterate, the vendor is charged $75 and not you. The list off approved vendors are Buena Vista Scooter Rentals, Best Price Mobility, Care Medical Equipment and Scooter Bug. If you rent your scooter from one of those vendors, there will be no problem with you having your scooter delivered even if you are not there to receive it. In other words, you can be at a park during the time it’s delivered and there will be no problem. The problem only lies if you choose a non approved vendor. Reaction to this news has been very harsh in nature. Some feel that this is Disney’s way to become even wealthier. I tend to agree. I believe that there should be no need to have an approved list of providers. The one thing the DJ of the DIS Unplugged Podcast said that I agree with is that something had to have happened in order for Disney to institute this rule. Disney does not do things just because they can. Whenever Disney creates a rule or policy, it is usually because something happened. What I’m guessing is that somehow a scooter became damaged on Disney’s watch and they got blamed for it. This was the opinion of the one podcast DJ as well. That’s the only reason I could see Disney changing their policy after so many years. That’s my opinion but what is yours? Why do you think Disney created a list of approved scooter vendors? Also, how do you feel about the new rule as a whole? Do you agree or disagree and why? Please post your comments below or E-mail us at admin@beyondthecastleblog.com with your thoughts. For now though, as always, have a magical day!
