Comparing Disney World stroller options

Disney World strollers(Article last updated: April 19, 2017)

With an average of about 50 miles of walking during a 1 week Disney World trip, it makes sense to consider strollers for many kids, even some who have outgrown using them at home.

Below, you’ll find a Disney World stroller comparison so you can find the option that’s best for you.

Let’s get started…

Bring your own stroller

Disney World strollers

Cost: Free (even if you’re flying as airlines allow you to check your stroller at the gate and don’t charge it as checked baggage)
Pros: Familiarity, will always have it with you (even on the long walks through the airports)
Cons: If you don’t want to lug it around at the airport, hotels, etc., it could be a problem (you will have to fold it up when riding Disney buses). Strollers also get a lot of wear and tear on Disney World trips due to the amount of use but also the inability to take them inside while in the parks (bring a rain cover to help protect your stroller).

Buy a stroller in Orlando

Often times it’s much cheaper to actually buy a stroller than rent one, even if you’re just going to leave it at the end of your trip.

If you have a car, it’s easy to run to a nearby Target or Walmart and pick up a stroller there.

Many of the gift shops in the Disney World resorts sell an umbrella stroller that’s a bit nicer than the lowest-end umbrella strollers. These strollers cost $60 and include a cup holder and the ability to recline.

You can also choose to buy a stroller online and have it delivered to your hotel.

How to address your package:
Your name (or whoever’s name is on the hotel reservation)
c/o Your Disney World Hotel’s front desk
Arrival date: 3/1/2013

When to order:
About a week before your trip will usually work but will depend on the shipping method and origin. To be safe, try to get it there a couple days before your trip.

Where to send it:

Disney World stroller rental companies

If you don’t want to bring or buy a stroller, you can always rent from 1 of many sources. Just keep in mind that if you have a stroller with you at all times that you’ll end up having to fold and unfold it to ride Disney buses.

Stroller recommendations

Having trouble deciding which option makes sense for you? Here are some thoughts:

  • If you have an infant who will need a lot of gear, rent whatever you need (including a stroller) from a place like A Baby’s Best Friend so you have everything you need during your trip.
  • If you have bigger kids who don’t use a stroller at home but will be really tired from walking miles each day, rent one of the bigger strollers from Disney or 1 of the rental companies like Magic Strollers who have bigger strollers available.
  • If you want a stroller to take everywhere during your trip (including the airport) but won’t need much else in terms of baby gear, bring your own stroller.

What are you planning to do for your trip? Or do you have questions about which Disney World stroller option makes the most sense for you?
