    I noticed one of the MOMs panelists recommended taking your own stroller for a young child...from past memories I seemed to remember the parents struggling with their own strollers on parking trams. Thoughts? Our 2YO is very small to carry from parking.

    Hi Amanda,

    I think most of the Moms Panelists would recommend bringing your own stroller to Walt Disney World. Here's why:

    - The Disney strollers cost more than $15 per day to rent. You can purchase an umbrella stroller at a discount store for nearly that. If you're staying for an extended period, renting from Disney can really add up.
    - There are a finite amount of Disney strollers. Depending on when you're traveling, there is some possibility that they could run out.
    - The Disney strollers are not padded and do not recline. If you want your child to nap in the stroller, this may be problematic.
    - The Disney strollers have no cup holders or package carry area.
    - The Disney strollers may not leave the theme parks. Depending on where you're staying, it is VERY likely that you'll want to use a stroller at a resort. 

    Yes, you may struggle for a few moments on the tram. But to me, that little bit of discomfort is a small price to pay to avoid the items I mentioned above. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
