    Would you ever recommend bringing a stroller for an older child - 8/9 y.o. -if we don't plan on taking an afternoon rest at our resort?

    Hi Rebekah,

    We have been visiting Walt Disney World with my 9-year old Son at least once a year since he was 6-years old and he has never needed a stroller.

    My family generally do not go back to our Resort hotel for breaks during the day and he has always managed absolutely fine.

    That said, it is certainly not uncommon to see children of that age being pushed around the Theme Parks.

    I honestly do not think that you will need to bring a stroller and if for some reason your child is struggling, you can always rent one.

    Strollers are available for rent at a variety of locations throughout Disney Theme Parks, Disney Water Parks and the Downtown Disney Area. Quantities are limited and subject to availability. (Double-passenger strollers are not available for rent at the Downtown Disney Area.)

    The stroller rental fee is:

    • $15.00 USD per day for a single-passenger stroller
    • $31.00 USD per day for a double-passenger stroller
    • $100 USD credit card deposit is required per strollers rented at the Downtown Disney Area. The rented stroller must be returned to the original rental location to receive a credit card deposit refund.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
