    Has anyone used them?

    I'm taking my mom to Disney the first week of December. We used Randy's last time she went to Disney and they were great. We aren't going for a full week this time. Mom wanted to just rent a scooter at WDW as needed but the prices are CRAZY. $45 a day plus a $20 deposit. And you aren't guaranteed that they will have one. Anyway, I went online and did some searching. Apple Scooter, for a 5 day rental, is $133 total and they drop and pick up for free.

    I LOVE the price, just wondering if anyone else had used them or shall my mom be the guinea pig?

    ah yes, completely forgot about this. Mom did use them. They dropped off the scooter with the bell services. It was easy to put together and take apart. It was great for the rate. The only issue is that it didn't have a headlight for use at night. Mom ended up buying a light up hat. My goodness were men flirting with her and that hat!

    FYI, have a relative that just tried to rent an ECV at the gate with WDW, and the price has increased considerably! :eek: It is NOT a viable option for anything other than a random one day use.

    Rent offsite and have it delivered, regardless of which offsite company you use!

    I used Walker last time, but they are coming up at $30 a day so the one you found is cheaper.
