This brings up the next-level question I have about all of this. How do I know at what point in each specific ride or event que to park the ECV and continue to rest of the journey on foot. Obviously, it's not like I'm unable to walk, it's just managing the pain and total number of steps. For instance, at Slinky Dog Dash, I can't imagine ECVs fit thru the winding line once you get past the entry area with the times listed (perhaps I'm wrong!).You might want to buy a collapsible cane to go with your scooter. I have osteoarthritis in my right knee and rented a scooter from Gold for the last two trips. The cane helped a lot when I wanted to stand in line rather that "scoot" or when I was required to park the scooter (like at Space Mountain). I kept the cane in the basket.
