    If we are planing on taking the WDW bus from the airport to Animal Kingdowm resort do we need to make reservations ahead of time. Also what kind of strollers can you rent? Are there extra space for storage (water, change of clothes).

    Hi Leah, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    First, if you do want to use Disney’s Magical Express in order to travel from Orlando International Airport to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you definitely need to call to reserve your spots. Just use the link I’ve included in order to find the phone number to contact them. 

    As for stroller rentals, I’ll be honest with you: I’m not a huge fan of the strollers that are available to rent at the Theme Parks at Walt Disney World Resort. Although they’re fine as a last-minute choice, because they’re made of hard moulded plastic, the biggest drawback with them is the fact that they don’t have any storage space, other than whatever space you can find beside your child or at their feet! 

    My recommendation would be to use a Disney Featured Provider if you’d like to rent a stroller for your upcoming vacation. You’ll be able to rent a more conventional one, one that has space for a bag and even some water! Although we’ve had wonderful service from all of the Featured Providers, our favourite is probably Kingdom Strollers. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
