    We are going to DisneyWorld the first week of April with a very active 7 year old. Should I rent a comfortable stroller from an outside source or just rent the ones at the park?

    Hi, there!

     Vickie, your Walt Disney World Resort Spring vacation is just around the corner. I'm so excited for you! I also have a very active 7-year old, and his little legs still appreciate a break in the stroller when we're visiting the Theme Parks. It's my pleasure to answer your question about a stroller for your kiddo! 

     Renting a stroller directly from a Walt Disney World Resort theme park or from Disney Springs is convenient because you pick it up and return it at the rental location, and don't need to worry about getting it to and from your hotel. On the other hand, when you don't have a stroller going to and from your hotel, you may have little legs with you that are too tired to walk! By the end of an adventure-filled day in the Theme Parks, my kiddos are wiped out. They have fallen asleep on the bus back to our Resort hotel many times, and we have always been thankful that we can transfer them to our double stroller to walk back to our room, rather than having to carry them. When you rent a stroller from Disney Featured Providers like Magic Strollers, Orlando Stroller Rentals, or Kingdom Strollers, you'll have it with you when you leave the Theme Parks. These companies most often rent strollers like the City Mini, which reclines completely and folds easily; the City Mini Single strollers can be folded with just one hand!

     Whether you choose to rent a stroller from Disney or from a rental company, you'll want to be sure to make your stroller stand out in the stroller parking areas! We tie Mickey Mouse ribbons around the handlebar on our stroller, in addition to a luggage tag with our contact information listed. 

     Thanks for stopping by, Vickie!
