How do I rent a scooter at Universal Orlando?

There are two ways to rent a mobility scooter when you visit Universal Orlando. One method is to rent from the park itself, and the other is to rent from a third party scooter rental vendor such as Cloud of Goods. Read on to learn about Universal Studios scooter rental. If you came here looking to rent, click here. This article was updated on 21st April 2023 to reflect the latest pricing available to us. 

Method 1: Renting a scooter at the park itself (expensive)

As you can read on their official website, due to limited numbers, mobility scooter rentals(ECV) are on a first-come, first-served basis. This means you will have to reach the park pretty early in order to secure a mobility scooter. And the prices are above average when compared to average scooter rental pricing in Orlando. Universal Orlando Resort rents both wheelchairs and scooters (electronic convenience vehicles) to guests for use in the parks.  Wheelchairs cost $12/day plus a $50 deposit.  The mobility scooters cost $65/day plus a $50 deposit, if you add a canpoy to that it becomes $85/day plus a $50 deposit. That is quite expensive for an ECV rental. 

Method 2: Renting a scooter from Cloud of Goods (cheaper)

Cloud of Goods can drop-off the scooter to the park entrance or to your hotel and pick it up when you are done using it. We offer competitive pricing and duration based discounts for all our scooter models. We have scooters that can support up to 400 lbs. This is a better option if you plan to use the mobility scooter(ECV) outside the park as well. No deposits are required. Click here to use this rental option
