    Is it better to rent or bring a stroller. We are flying. I have a 4 y/o and 1 y/o. I have a sit and stand stroller. 4 y/o likes to walk but will get tired. Is it better to rent? Wasn't sure about extra charge to bring the stroller on the plane. Fit on bus?

    Hi Rachel!
    Having a stroller where your kids can rest is priceless! Even though I love renting the strollers at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, for a 1 year old and a 4 year old I would bring my own stroller. Even if you consider renting from a local company, keep in mind that you wont have it at the airport. I usually bring a small umbrella style stroller which opens and closes easily which we use up to the airport gate. The airline personnel store it with the luggage and then we get it back at the gate when we arrive in Orlando but we haven't been charged for this service so far. Consider that you would have to close your stroller and have it stored under the bus if using Disney's Magical Express and it will have to be closed while using Disney's busses. If you think it would be easier to rent, then rent a stroller that would be comfortable for both your children to rest between attractions and entertainment.
    Hope this helps and have a magical vacation!
