    I'm thinking about park hopping, but was wondering how easy it is if renting a stroller at the park? Are the drop off locations near the transportation loading zone? would you recommend park hopping with a rented stroller? ( my daughter is five)

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shaun!

    Thanks for coming by to ask this awesome question! We used a rental stroller for the first time with our boys this summer, who are 2 years old and 4 years old, and my entire family really thought the double stroller we rented from Walt Disney World Resort was pretty awesome! My kids were really comfortable in it since there was plenty of room for long legs and my husband and I both thought it was really easy to push and maneuver through the parks. As you know, rental strollers cannot be removed from the theme park and must be returned to a stroller rental location prior to hopping between parks. The good thing is that there are stroller rental locations right at the entrances of each park. You can see a map with the stroller rental location in each theme park at the bottom of the Stroller Rental information page.  As you are leaving a park, you will drop of your stroller on the way out and use your rental receipt to pick a new one up on your way into your next park. There are also stroller rental locations in Disney Springs, so you are welcome to pick one up there so your daughter can rest her legs as you explore all of the shopping, dining and entertainment experiences!

    One more tip: Since the rental strollers all look the same, it is really helpful to tie a balloon onto the handle of your stroller so you can find it easily in the sea of Stroller Parking!

    Let me now if you have any other questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
