Limited Mobility - Universal Orlando

Can I rent a wheelchair or scooter/Electronic Conveyance Vehicle (ECV) at Universal Studios Florida and Island of Adventure?

Yes. Wheelchairs and ECVs can be rented at the entrance to each park on the left side on a first come first serve basis. Wheelchairs are $25 a day plus a $25 deposit, ECVs are $75 a day plus a $25 deposit. You must be 18 years of age to rent and operate an ECV. ECVs may be reserved at least one week in advance by calling Guest Services at 407-224-4233. Wheelchairs are also for rent inside the parking Rotunda.

Can you rent an EVC or wheelchair at Universal’s Volcano Bay?

Wheelchairs may be rented at Universal’s Volcano Bay at the Concierge Booth for $25 plus a $25 deposit. ECVs are not available for rent at Volcano Bay.

Is there a disability pass for guests with limited mobility at the Universal Studios parks.

Universal Studios has an IBCCES Individual Accessibility Card that must be registered for online or by app at least 48 hours ahead of time. However, this card is intended for guests whose disability prevents them from waiting in a traditional queue and need an alternative place to wait in line. Since the lines at Universal Studios are ADA compliant this pass is not available for guests with limited mobility in a wheelchair or ECV.

How accessible are the lines at Universal Studios Orlando and Isle of Adventure?

Most attraction lines are accessible by both Wheelchairs and ECVs and many of them have easy transfer. The queues for some attractions do have stairs, but elevators are available for guests in wheelchairs and EVCs as well as any guest with a health-related issue that makes stairs an issue.

Can guests ride any of the attractions without transferring from their ECV or wheelchair? The only ride that can accommodate guests remaining in an ECV or electric wheelchair is the Hogwarts Express. Wheelchair boarding requirements vary from ride to ride. A detailed list can be found here.

We found all of the rides and experiences we participated in to be very wheelchair friendly and accessible for someone who was able to transfer from the wheelchair independently. The only problem we had was the single rider’s line at VelociCoaster which was only accessible by stairs. But we only spent one day parking hopping between the two parks, so there are a wide variety of rides and shows we did not experience.
