    Planning a trip to Disney in oct. 2020. looking for advice on weather or not to rent a stroller. My son loves rides right now when we go to amusement parks & never stays in the stroller, he is 3. If yes to rent one is there stroller parking at rides.

    Hey, Sarah, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is such a great question, so I am glad you stopped by today. I can tell you without a doubt in my mind that yes, you will want to rent a stroller for your son. Walt Disney World Resort is such a huge place and those little legs will be extremely tired very quickly each day! Honestly, your legs are going to be tired, too! While he may enjoy running from ride to ride at your local amusement parks, I can easily see him wearing himself out trying to do so at Walt Disney World Resort. It is really hard to continue having fun when your little legs just can't quite go another step. I also want to encourage you to consider the safety aspect of using a stroller. The parks do get very crowded at times and I always appreciated having the stroller as a spot for my daughter to be within my reach as we made our way through the crowds.

    If you do decide to rent a stroller, know that there are central areas throughout the parks where you can park your stroller while you enjoy nearby attractions. You should be able to easily see these areas as you roam about, but feel free to ask Cast Members for the closest recommended stroller parking area. Know that when you return to collect your stroller, its position may be shifted a bit as Cast Members frequently consolidate parked strollers. I will attach a great clip from my friend, Crystal, who shares an idea for helping keep track of your stroller. Strollers can be rented each day right at the theme parks and Disney Springs or you have the option of renting one from the Disney Featured Provider that can be used throughout your stay, even outside the parks. 

    I hope this information helps you plan for a magical adventure with your little one! Thanks for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
