This probably won’t come as a surprise to you, but there is no shortage of strollers at Disney World. Just like Disney magic, they’re everywhere! There might be lots of them all around Disney, but that doesn’t mean knowing what is the best stroller for Disney World is easy. Should you buy one? Should you go the Disney World stroller rental route? If you’re looking for stroller options for Disney World, then we’ve got you covered. We consistently go with our 2-year-old and we’ve become very familiar with strollers at “The Happiest Place on Earth.”

Below, we will lay out all your options when it comes to the best stroller for Disney World, including Disney World stroller rental options so you can make the best decision for you and your family on your vacation.

 

Bring Your Own

Chances are, if you have a little one, you probably have a stroller that you use on a regular basis. Depending on the stroller though, it may not be the best stroller for Disney World. When you are in the parks, you need a stroller that is lightweight and can be easily folded up for getting on and off of buses, trams etc. If your stroller is heavier, bulkier, doesn’t quickly and easily fold up (imagine 100’s of people waiting on you to get onto a bus or tram while you fold your stroller up), then you may want to consider either buying a different stroller or renting one while you are at Disney. Below, you can see the ones we recommend if you are looking to bring your own to the parks.

 

What We Look For In The Best Stroller For Disney

 

You may not think there is really much of a difference when it comes to strollers and just get the cheapest one you can find. It’s not that a cheap stroller won’t do the job, but Disney World is unlike any other place on Earth. You may find midway through your vacation that you made a terrible choice when it comes to a stroller and it can really impact your trip (we’ve experienced this). Here are some things to consider when choosing a stroller to take to Disney.

 

Size

Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to strollers, especially at Disney World. You’ll find out really quickly that having a bigger stroller can make getting around crowded spaces, walkways, and just the mass of humanity can be difficult to maneuver around. Not to mention, getting on and off trams and buses, you will come to rue the day you decided on that bulky stroller that takes an engineering degree to fold and unfold each time.

 

Features

When it comes to features, there are some that are must haves and others that really you can do without. If there is a certain feature that you feel you must have then, by all means, include that as part of your search. You can save some money by knowing what you want specifically in a stroller by simply not paying for extra features that you don’t care about.

 

Foldability

This one we mentioned in the size part, but it’s worth noting how important this feature of a stroller is. You will be folding and unfolding your stroller A LOT on your trip! Every time you get on and off the bus, the tram, the train and other times that you will be glad if you have one that is easy to fold. If you have one that is not easy to fold, you will quickly come to wish you had one that did.

 

Maneuverability

You’ll want a stroller that can fit in and out of tight spaces, make sharp turns, and provide a smooth ride when you’re in the parks.

There are plenty of Walmarts, Targets and other stores close to Disney World that are a short drive or a quick Uber ride where you could go to pick up a stroller.

What Do We Recommend?

It really depends on your situation and what your child needs. If you are in need of a stroller all the time, from your plane ride to the resort and around the parks, then bringing your own is probably the best choice for you. If you’re just going to use a stroller when you’re in the parks and you don’t want to bother with dealing with a stroller on your flight or car ride home, then renting one from one of the providers we mentioned above may be the best option for you.

Quick Tip: If the stroller you use at home is a bit too bulky and won’t work be one of the best strollers for Disney World, then what you could do is purchase one of the strollers we mentioned above. Use it on your trip and then when you get back home you could sell the stroller on eBay, Facebook or other local marketplaces. You probably won’t get what you paid for it but if the stroller is still in great condition you could probably get 80%-90% of what you paid back, making it a super cheap rental essentially.
