Something very exciting is happening this week! For the first time in forever (or, for the first time in over a year) Disneyland Resort will officially be reopening its theme park gates to California residents.
The ongoing pandemic has affected all of the Disney theme parks, but California has experienced some of the biggest challenges since Disneyland was unable to reopen for so long. That being said, now that Disneyland is reopening, Guests can expect that some price jumps will occur for a few resort offerings.
Disney blogger Wonders of Magic (@wonders_of_magic) took to Instagram to showcase the prices of strollers, wheelchairs, and ECVs, all of which have gone up.
Increased prices at the Disneyland Stroller shop for Wheelchairs, Convenience Vehicles and strollers!
- Single stroller – $18.00
- Double stroller – $36.00
- ECV – $80.00 ($60.00 rental plus a $20.00 refundable deposit)
- Wheelchair – $35.00 ($15.00 plus a $20.00 refundable deposit)
If we swipe to the next photo in the Instagram post, we can see the old prices as displayed:
- Single stroller – $15.00
- Double stroller – $35.00
- ECV – $70.00 ($50.00 rental plus a $20.00 refundable deposit)
- Wheelchair – $32.00 ($12.00 plus a $20.00 refundable deposit)

It seems that the cost of the ECV went up the most, with a $10.00 total jump, but as we can see from the comparison, every rental has gone up in price. Therefore, anyone looking to rent when visiting Disneyland should be aware that prices have increased, but not by too much. Please also be advised that stroller rentals as well as ECV and wheelchair rentals can be found in different areas of Disneyland Resort.
Stroller rentals are available outside the Disneyland Park Main Entrance adjacent to the Kennel and inside Pixar Pals Parking structure. Wheelchair rentals are available outside the theme parks, just east of the Disneyland Park Main Entrance and at the Pixar Pals parking structure.
Also, if you plan on renting anything when visiting Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, or the Downtown Disney District, be sure to arrive early as these rentals are not booked in advance!
