Not to WDW, but to a time share resort in Orlando, 8 days and 7 nights. We won it at an auction, so it wasn't free, but it was 1/2 price. I am so excited, we get to see the new Fantasy Land! But we have always stayed in the park, so I'm a little worried about several things. Mainly, I have to rent a power chair, and they only deliver to the hotel. Does Disney have any power chairs for rent, and can you reserve them?

 Congrats!  Not sure on the powerchair, but I am sure one of the girls here will have the answer for you.

Disney does rent ECV's however, you can only rent them per park. They can not be moved outside of the park and are on a "first come, firat serve" basis. 

Ill call the companies I use and see if anything can be done for you and forward the info your way.. 

If you need the Disney ECV/wheelchair info: 

Wheelchair Rentals
For the convenience of Guests with disabilities, wheelchairs and Electric Convenience Vehicles (ECV) are available for rent at a variety of locations throughout Disney Theme Parks and the Downtown Disney Area. A limited supply of wheelchairs is also available for Guests use at select Disney Resort hotel locations, but ECVs are not available. ECVs are designed to be single-rider and not to hold more than one person.

Rental Fees (Prices are subject to change.)
$12 USD per day for wheelchairs at Theme Parks
$12 USD per day plus a $100 USD refundable security deposit for wheelchairs at the Downtown Disney Area

Rented units must be returned to the original rental location to receive a security deposit refund. Guests must be 18 years of age to rent an ECV. ECVs are designed to be single-rider and not to hold more than one person.

Most of the rental places will deliver to a timeshare resort, they will deliver to most Orlando area resorts.

But then if we get it at the hotel, how do we get it to the park?

How are you getting to the parks? They fold down and can fit in most trunks. If your using some kind of shuttle, it can be ridden right onto the shuttle.

 If you will be driving.. make sure you let the company know you will need one that breaks down. Not all scooters have the capability.  If you are using Disney busses.. you will ride it onto the bus and be strapped in..either the scooter itself or they will have the seatbelt for the rider as well.
