    Default Thinking of decorating my ECV rental while at Disney

    Has anyone ever decorated their off-site ECV rental while they were visiting Disney? I was thinking of attaching (via zip ties) an inexpensive plush animal. Sort of like a sailing ships maidenhead.


    I would love to hear from others, especially if you have photos.

    I don't have pictures, but we were in the parks the week before Christmas and saw several ECVs decorated with battery powered multi-colored lights, some steadily on and some flashing. Most were either privately owned or rented from off-site companies, but we saw at least two WDW ECVs so decorated.

    The "battery powered" I refer to are lights with their own battery packs, NOT wired into the ECV's battery.

    I've never decorated my scooter, but it's a good idea, maybe it would help me be more visible! Last time I was at WDW so many people almost walked/ran right into me, it was like I was invisible. Then they probably went home and told everyone about the %&*@ scooters that almost ran into them.

    I have battery-powered lights on the basket of my scooter . My walker (rollator) has zebra print tape on the padded back rest. I may put lights on it for the Star Wars 5k.

    Great Idea! I'll be down for the F&G also but not at the same time. I'm stealing your idea and adding some lights.
    I've used Christmas lights and for the Halloween party one year I was able to get an orange string and a purple string with bats.

    Great idea! Sounds fun.

    Just an aside, zip ties are THE BEST!!! We just completed a time where my son was raising a pig for FFA. He used zip ties for so many things!
