Disney World is a magical place, but if you're traveling with young children, you'll quickly realize the importance of having a stroller. Whether you're considering renting one or bringing your own, this guide will provide you with all the information you need about strollers at Disney World.
Disney’s Stroller Policy
Before diving into the options, it's crucial to understand Disney’s stroller policy. If you're bringing your own stroller, make sure you're familiar with the guidelines regarding sizes and shapes. Disney has set specific dimensions for strollers allowed in the park. The maximum size allowed is 31″ (79 cm) wide and 52″ (132 cm) long. It's also worth noting that stroller wagons are prohibited, even if they are pushed and not pulled.
Disney World Stroller Options
Renting in-park: Disney offers stroller rental locations throughout its theme parks and at Disney Springs. While this is a convenient option, it might not be the most cost-effective. Strollers rented in-park must be returned as you exit the theme park for the day.
Renting from a non-Disney business: Several businesses around Disney World offer stroller rentals. These businesses often provide a wider variety of stroller sizes, models, and accessories. An added bonus is that many of these businesses will deliver the stroller directly to your resort or vacation home in the Orlando area at no extra charge. You also get the convenience of keeping the stroller overnight and returning it at the end of your trip.
Bringing your own stroller: Yes, you can bring your own stroller to Disney World. However, ensure it meets Disney's size guidelines. If you're considering this option, weigh the pros and cons. On the plus side, you're familiar with your stroller, and there's no additional cost. On the downside, traveling with a stroller can be cumbersome, especially at airports and hotels.
