When heading to Disney’s theme parks with a child under the age of 3, a stroller is a necessity. The stroller that you use at home will usually work for your vacation as long as it has 1) A sunshade to keep your child covered, 2) Storage to hold your diaper bag and other necessities, and 3) it reclines for easy naps.
If you don’t use a stroller at home, or don’t want to haul it to Florida, consider renting a stroller. Several local companies offer strollers for rent, and will deliver and pick up from most hotels and resorts free of charge. All of the rental companies offer the Baby Jogger City Mini Series strollers in singles or doubles, which seem to be the most popular models in the parks. In the list below, I’ve noted the additional stroller models that these companies offer. Pricing, accessories, and pick up and delivery times vary per company.
Baby Wheels Orlando: Also carries Britax strollers, and BOB Motion strollers
Kingdom Strollers: Also carries Baby Jogger City Elite and Summit strollers, BOB strollers, and special needs strollers
Simple Stroller Rental: Also carries BOB strollers, and Joovy Double and Triple Sit ‘n Stand strollers
Orlando Stroller Rentals: Also carries Baby Jogger City Elite and Summit strollers, and special needs strollers
Lastly, you can rent a stroller at any of the Disney theme parks (they are not available at the water parks) or Downtown Disney. Disney rental strollers are basic molded plastic with a sun canopy, and can only be used within the theme parks. They aren’t designed for infants or toddlers and I don’t recommend them for kids under age 3. However, Disney stroller rentals retail for $15 per day for a single stroller and $31 per day for a double stroller. A discount is given if you rent for a number of days at a time and prepay the cost.
