    It's absolutely terrible that someone would A.) Abuse the system so much, and B.) Brag about it on camera. Disgusting.

    Things like that really get my back up, idiot!

    i want one for the days we go to the parks but OH wants to push me, because of cost :(

    Mick,

    Have you checked into renting an ECV offsite? They will deliver to and pickup from your villa. It might be a slight nuisance to load it into your rental vehicle when going to the parks, but the money you would save--and wear and tear on your DH!--could well be worth it. It's going to be plenty warm--bordering on hot--when you're in Orlando, so Denise might find it more difficult pushing you through the parks than she would think.

    Mick, I agree with Taja here. Off site rentals are considerably cheaper than those at WDW and you would have it all the time. Most offsite places, I have heard, offer discounts for additional weeks. When I was using my handicap badge here at work because of my knee, I watched a lady who parked beside me break hers down on a daily basis and she appeared to have no problem with that or lifting it into her car either.

    My mum has one and it does break down quite small, it's only the battery that's a bit heavy.

    This happened to us Mick. I parked up and got out of the van and was just about to open the door when this guy asked me why i was parked there and did i not realise his granny would of wanted this space. He told me how selfish i was for parking there. I said nothing, i just opened the doors got Beth out and then looked at the guy and said i wish my daughter could walk. You can guess who had the reddest face :rolleyes008:
    When we were in MK last year there was a couple in ECV next to us, a family behind asked if there young daughter in a wheelchair could go in front as she could not see the parade. They said no nad then promptley walked of to get themselfs a hot chocolate.
