    Hi Can I bring a dog stroller for a service animal into the parks? Stores? Restaurants?

    Hi Lisa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for asking such an interesting question. I am sure there may be other Guests who will find this answer useful.  One of the reasons I love visiting Walt Disney World so much is that they want to ensure that everyone receives a welcoming and comfortable experience. For this reason there are a number of Walt Disney World Property Rules that every Guest is required to heed.  Firstly, the guidelines regarding strollers have recently been improved, and generally all strollers that are smaller than 31” (79 cm) in width and 52” (132 cm) in length are allowed into the theme parks. Our much-loved animals also have their own policies which must be adhered to.  Whether inside or outside the stroller, all service animals should remain on a leash and under your control at all times. Your service animal will be welcomed at most locations throughout Walt Disney World theme parks and Resort hotels, and they might even be permitted to accompany you on some attractions – but please check with the host before boarding. Such attractions include: Prince Charming Regal Carousel (Magic Kingdom Park); Spaceship Earth, Innoventions; Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival (Epcot); Toy Story Mania! (Disney’s Hollywood Studios); It’s Tough To Be A Bug!; Kilimanjaro Safaris: Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park).  Following all the excitement of those rides and attractions, if your service animal needs to ‘use the restroom’ there are Service Animal Relief Areas in the theme parks. For clarification, the Walt Disney World Animal Policies state that ‘Service animal means a dog or miniature horse that is trained to do work or perform tasks for, and to assist, an individual with a disability.  All other animals, including emotional support, comfort or companion animals, are not considered service animals.’  If you need more information during your visit, please contact Disability Services at (407) 560-2547.

    I hope I have explained this fully, and now all that needs to be done is for you to look forward to your trip!  Please keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest news, and any updates about events that may be happening during your visit.  Have a wonderful time!

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We are always happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
