I beg to differ. My personal scooter is a Pride Go-Go Elite Traveler Plus (Plus means larger battery). It comes apart easily into pieces I can handle alone, and fits well in the trunk of my Hyundai, with room for some luggage as well. At 250, I can comfortably do 10-12 hours in the park, and have done 18 hours but it was pretty low at the end. (I had to put it in neutral and push it up the ramp onto the bus, but it still did OK on the flat.)

Size is a factor -- I chose the Plus because I am close to the weight limit, but there's no reason to dismiss a travel scooter out of hand.

I was only pointing out that you can't rent a scooter just by size, but by weight capacity. Most Go-Go's handle much less weight than your particular configuration. I don't know if a rental company would carry your model in the WDW area.
