Orlando, Fla. —

Walt Disney world in Orlando is now offering ESVs to their guests:

Beginning today, Disney will offer Electric Standing Vehicles (ESVs) for guests with disabilities at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

The ESVs are equipped with four wheels, and are similar in function to the Segway stand-up vehicles which are not permitted inside Disney parks. The rental fee is $50 per day plus deposit, and can be rented at the existing wheelchair locations throughout property. No medical paperwork is required, and reservations can be made at 407-824-5217.

It's no wonder that Segways aren't allowed in the Magic Kingdom.

I mean, what could possibly go wrong?
