I used Apple Scooter on our last trip (2/28-3/5) and had no problems at all. I will definitely use them again!

I used their smaller one, the Go Go Elite Traveler Plus, and LOVED IT. I used it all day in the parks and the battery indicator never even went down one tick. I charged it every night in our hotel room. You can take the battery charger with you if you are concerned, but after my first day I just left it at the hotel since I trusted it. If you are eagle-eyed you can find places to charge in, my mom was always looking for them to plug in her cell phone. I remember seeing an ECV charging station, I want to say it was located in Tomorrowland near the Transit Authority Peoplemover ride, but I could be wrong.

We have used them 4 times and they have been great! This last time the scooter broken down in MK near Casey's corner. So we called and sat and got a hot dog. They got there in20 minutes and fixed the problem! They said if they couldn't fix, they would bring another. They are located near the entrance to the world, so they can be right there.

The Oct/Nov trip, we were staying offsite at Westgate Town Center and then spent the last night over at RPR at Universal. They delivered the ECV to Westgate Town Center and picked it up a week later over at Universal at RPR. For May we are at Wyndham Bonnet Creek and when I made the reservation was told it would not be a problem for them to drop off and pick up from there either and that they deliver and pick up from anywhere in the Orlando area.

Merged threads

There were 2 very recent open threads about Apple Scooters, so I merged them into one.
That way the people who were looking for information have only one thread to look at.

Woo-Hoo!! I did not know about the discounts! I need to call them about my upcoming trip and will be sure to mention that this will be my second time with them and that I am a military spouse. Any little bit will help since I use the larger scooter due to the higher back.

I have rented from Apple Scooter 2x now and was pleased with their service. Will be renting from them again. I did get a returning guest discount so for 6 days it only cost me $117.15 for the smallest 3 wheel model for 6 days.

I want to rent an ECV for my mom for our April trip. She has never used a scooter and she is able to walk and is mobile, but I want to have one for her this trip because of the amount of walking over our five days in the park and she has neuropathy in her feet. She is small, weighing about 135 lbs. Would the Go Go Elite be okay for her and is the seat comfortable? And which ECV is easier for a first time user to operate, the 3-wheel or 4-wheel?

Curious on the answer myself for my mom.... 3 or 4 wheel???/
Heading to Disney in December and mom is coming. She does NOT use anything currently but will need something for the amount of walking Disney requires; plus her knee replacements are giving her hell....

The 3 wheel model is easier to move in tighter places, but the 4 wheel model is not as tippy. I am not saying that the 3 wheel one would tip easilly on you, but you do need to watch it more when going on hills or inclines across them. Up and down the hills is not the problem, it is going across them that could be.

I use the Go-Go Elite Traveler Plus as my personal scooter and weigh a lot more than 135 lbs. I find the seat is plenty comfortable and it would be fine for your mother. It is a easy scooter to use.

I've recharged in the MK and EPCOT. At MK there's an outlet in the arches under the train station, and one just outside near the pressed penny machine. I've read that there are eventually supposed to be outlets in one of the circus tents in NFL, but I didn't see them last time I was there.

In EPCOT Future World, a lot of the flower beds have boxes with outlets in them.

Just returned from our trip apple worked out great, used a stroller and 3 wheel scooter! 3 wheel was so easy to maneuver and surprisingly easy to get through even the toughest lines or smallest spaces. Don't let the 8 hour battery life fool you it lasted two days before it needed a charge! There are plenty of places to charge them in the parks too just bring your charger. I will say when the battery starts to go it didn't seem like it kept too long though
