    Is there a bike share going on at Fort Wilderness? Or does anyone know of a cheaper bike rental service than renting one from Disney?
    Thank you!

    jdansdad,

    There is no bikeshare that I am currently aware of.

    Disney rents the bikes at the Bike Barn for about $18-20 a day (no discount for multi-day rental). Thing is, though, (for those reading along) those are DAILY rentals meaning you have to turn the bikes in to Disney by when the Bike Barn closes every night and can only get a bike once they open each morning. You can't keep a Disney bike rental overnight. As such, anything longer than a 1-day rental is a logistical burden.

    There is a bike store across I4 in the Celebration community that advertises rentals.

    They pick up and deliver rentals at the Fort. Since they let you keep the bike overnight, the costs aren't comparable since they're offering a different product.

    It might be cheaper to buy a cheap one online and have it delivered to The Fort and leave it for someone else to use.
