OTHER GENERAL GOLF CART FAQs & NOTES:
  • since the security changes to the overflow parking lot, you should contact the rental company to find out what they need to do in order to deliver your cart.
  • off-site rental carts are considered "personal" carts and must have the same equipment as the rental carts, incl. windshield, front and rear lights
  • you do not need to notify Fort Wilderness that you will be bringing your own golf cart or renting one off-site
  • there is golf cart parking which can be used by any golf cart (personal, Disney and off-site rentals):
    • On the driveway at your site
    • Near the marina
    • Near Trails End and the Hoop de Doo
    • Near the Meadows Recreation Area and Campfire/Movie
    • Near the Outpost Bus Stop
    • Near the Settlement Bus Stop
  • there are a limited number of recharging stations (plugs) in the golf cart parking areas near Trails End; the Marina; and near the Settlement bus stop
  • there are no recharging stations (plugs) at the Outpost golf cart parking area
  • all cabins/campsites have their own accessible plug to recharge your cart
  • you cannot drive golf carts on any roads outside of Fort Wilderness or on the road/path to Wilderness Lodge
  • 4 seater carts are large enough to hold 4 adults comfortably, but it is possible to squeeze in extras - particularly smaller kids - depending on size. Capacity limits are not posted/enforced. 6 seater carts are available through some outside vendors (see below)

OFF SITE RENTALS
The vendors noted below operate in the Orlando area and have all been used or recommended by Fort Fiends. FortFiends.net does not officially endorse any of the vendors noted below.

9/16/14: It has been reported by multiple sources that Disney is no longer allowing ANY outside golf cart rental companies to deliver carts to the Fort. It has been further reported as of yesterday, that camper rental companies may no longer be allowed to include a golf cart as part of their rental package. The situation is fluid and more changes and confirmation of changing policies may be forthcoming. In the meantime, we recommend that you discuss any specific rental arrangements with your vendor.

Has anyone rented from Kissimmee Golf rentals?

To All,

Remember you can rent from a outside cart company. Keep in mine out side cart company's are not allowed on WDW property. It is OK to pick it up and bring it in and then return it all off property. That means the entire WDW property. If the cart company's are caught they will be tresspassed from WDW not just the Fort area.

This is true on paper. However, like most large corporations, what is enforced and what is not depends on who is working and what shift. Thank you for your public service announcement though.

Kenny has always provided excellent service every time we have rented from him. Our cart was delivered directly to our site last time.

First off, thanks for all the info. Using this board and all your great info allowed my to rent a golf cart for our upcoming trip for 9 days in June at less than half of what WDW wanted. I would have preferred to rent from Disney and would have even done so if their prices were only slightly higher, but not when I can get it for less than half. We rented it from TeeTime golf carts. The gal told me they will call the day before to make sure we are arriving on the day originally planned and then when we get our site# to just give them a call and they will deliver it to the site. I questioned her becuase of the above posts. I asked if I had to meet in a parking lot etc. She said no, they can get on site and deliver right to your spot and pick it up as well. That was as of 3 weeks ago.

I rented a cart from Kissimmee Golf rentals and am having problems getting ahold of them. We arrive inb 2 days and when I called their number; it said there was no one to answer the phone right now but they didn't have a way to leave a message. I also emailed them and still haven't heard anything. I gave them my phone number in the email. I'm worried as I have health issues that make it hard to get around the fort...Has anyone dealt with them recently? I got their info from FF. Thanks

Made a reservation with Kenny four months ahead of our 2/6/13 arrival for a week rental of a golf cart. Got a text from Kenny the day before we arrived said to text him when we arrived. When we arrived in Orlando and turned my phone on there was a message from Kenny saying he could not deliver on the promised cart due to one got smashed and another was broke waiting on parts. He said he would refund us in full, after many calls with no answer and no returned calls from messages we have to file a dispute with the credit card company to get our money back. This isnt a good way to run a business he had to know the day before he would not have a cart for us, we had to scramble and find another cart for the week.

Does anybody have any updated news about off site rental companies? Mainly updated rates and how they are getting carts to the Fort. We are hoping to get a few days in at the fort on our next trip and want a cart for about four days and would rather it pay Disney prices.

Some of the off site rental folks (namely those we list here) have actually requested keeping those kinds of details off the internet so that they can continue to keep a low profile and avoid any difficulties with Fort management.  Best bet is to contact them directly with any questions concerning rates, availability, etc.

Just called Kenny but he's all booked.  Bummer.  Guess we'll have to rent onsite.  Yikes!
