    Love the panel! We are traveling to WDW the first week in October with my five year old triplets (2 boys and a girl), Would it be better for us to rent strollers at the park or from one of the online sites that deliver to our resort?

    Hi Dale,

    Even if you are flying to Walt Disney World, I would encourage you to try to bring your strollers with you from home.  You'll be glad to have them in the airport.  We first took our son to Walt Disney World when he was five.  He was a tall five-year-old who used the stroller very little at that point in his life and my husband thought I was crazy to bring the stroller along but we were so glad we did.  Our son enjoyed having access to it in the airport, at the resort, and throughout the theme parks.  There's plenty of walking while vacationing at Walt Disney World and I guarantee you'll want to have some strollers on hand.  Bringing yours from home will save you quite a bit of money.

    If you can't bring your strollers from home, then I'd rent them from a distributor who will deliver to your resort.  Imagine having one or more of your five-year-olds asleep in a stroller at the front gates of one of the theme parks when you have to return it at the end of a long day.  (Are you getting the picture here?)  You're going to want access to a stroller beyond just the park gates.  Even when the kids aren't sitting in them, it's nice to have a place to keep your jackets, water bottles, etc.  Just don't leave any valuables in them.  And be sure to attach a colorful ribbon or bandanna to each one so that you can easily distinguish them from other strollers you'll encounter in the parks.

    Wishing you and your family an extra magical trip this October!  Let us know if you need any additional information.
