    Would it better to rent a stroller or bring my own? Also, any good events and food places to take small children?

    Hi, there!

     Dominique, it sounds like you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. And with little ones in tow! How very exciting. 

     Whether to rent a stroller or take your own is really a matter of personal preference. Renting a stroller from one of the four theme parks or Disney Springs is super convenient because you can simply pick it up upon arrival and drop it off when you're leaving. Purchasing a Length of Stay Rental makes getting a stroller even easier, and saves you a bit of money too! My family chooses to take our own stroller with us when we travel to Orlando. We appreciate having it with us in the airports, but also when traveling to and from the theme parks and our Resort hotel room. We love our City Mini Double Stroller because the seats recline nearly flat (perfect for a little snooze), the canopies are extra-long (keeping my kids well-shaded), and it folds really easily (a priority when relying on Disney bus transportation). If you choose to take your own stroller to the theme parks with you, just be sure that it meets the size requirements

     I recommend families with small children include a few Character Dining Experiences in their vacation plans. My little ones love these meals in particular because kid-friendly fare is always available AND they get to visit with their favorite Disney Characters without experiencing a wait!

     There are lots of awesome entertainment offerings for kiddos, but my absolute favorites are Festival of the Lion King and Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. Be sure to catch these performances during your stay, Dominique!
