    Has anyone rented a stroller from orlando stroller rental?We have a 4 yr old and a 9 mth old and I can't decide what to do about the stroller situation.Should I rent a double stroller or should I bring a single of our own?I'm definitely up in the air.HELP

    Hi Holly!  Your problem is one that many moms and dads have concerning strollers......doubles/singles/rent/bring?????

    We have used Orlando Stroller rental and were very pleased with the product and service.  If you choose the rental route I do recommend them.  From my experience with grandchildren you will definitely want something for the two children.  Your four year old is growing up but the parks are not getting any smaller and their little legs can carry them only so far. 

    The biggest issue with the double strollers is that they are bulky and hard to fold up.  All strollers must be folded when taking any Disney bus transportation and sometimes on the boats as well.  Bringing one of your own can be nice to have to trek through the airports as you can have it gate checked and then pick it up at the arriving gate as well.  If you only have a single stroller to bring you can also consider buying one of the Disney umbrella strollers for about $55.  They are durable and quite nice and it might end up being cheaper then renting for your full stay.

    Unfortunately, there isn't a correct answer to this question and will end up back on you as far as what you want to deal with during the trip.  One big stroller is harder to handle when taking Disney transportation but many moms don't want to deal with two strollers and two children.  Our family has always opted for the light weight umbrella strollers that are easy to handle and easy to fold away and one for each child.
