    Hi!My family will be visiting Disney World in June and we have booked a hotel at the Disney Sports Resort, my question is how difficult is it to bring a stroller onto the bus that takes you from the hotel to the parks? Or would it be best just to rent one?

    Hi, Casey!

    Whether to bring your own stroller from home or rent one is totally up to you. There are advantages to both options. If you bring your own, you have no added expense. You also will have your own set of wheels your entire trip including the airport and around your resort. The positive side of renting a stroller means one less thing you have to haul around and pack for your trip, but you will not have it available outside of the parks. So you see, it all equals out, so the choice is up to you!

    When my kids were very little, I brought my own so I knew they would be familiar with it and comfortable. As they got older, they just wanted a place to rest their legs so any stroller would do. Renting was also a better option as they got older because some days they would want one, and the days they did not want/need one, we just did not rent one and went stroller-free for the day.

    If you plan to bring your own stroller, please know that it will need to be collapsed when boarding the buses. I suggest practicing this a few times because you will want to board quickly to grab a seat, so plan to have the child out of the stroller, the basket under the carriage emptied, and be ready to fold and go!

    And this I promise you: Those little Mouseketeers of yours will be out of a stroller before you know it and you will have teenagers running around the parks and you will be trying to keep up with their late nights! Enjoy all the magic of those little cuties!
