    I was reading over Disney’s Stroller policy. When measuring, is the new policy’s measurement measuring from wheel to wheel? Or do they include the handle bar in the length of the stroller? Might be a silly question.

    Hi, there!

     Kayla, it sounds like you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting! We're so glad you sent us this really great question as you're preparing for your vacation.

     As a mom of three, a stroller is a must-have for my family's Disney vacations. Exploring the theme parks requires a lot of walking, and little ones tire quickly! I'm glad to hear you've reviewed the stroller guidelines ahead of your visit. Strollers are required to be no larger than 31" wide and 52" long, measured from the widest and longest points, including the handlebar. I'm happy to tell you that most single and double strollers fit within these size guidelines! To check your stroller's measurements, I recommend using painter's tape to create a 31" x 52" rectangle on the floor. If your stroller fits within the rectangle, you'll be all set! If it doesn't, I suggest renting a stroller. You can rent a stroller from all four theme parks and Disney Springs, or you can rent a stroller from ScooterBug, Disney's Featured Provider. The benefit of renting a stroller from ScooterBug is that you can keep the stroller for the length of your stay, rather than returning it at the end of each day like you would with a theme park rental. Another benefit of renting a stroller from ScooterBug is that all their strollers meet the size guidelines for the theme parks, so you definitely don't have to worry about that. I especially recommend renting the City Mini Double. With extra-large shades, seats that completely recline, and loads of storage space, it's my family's favorite stroller!

     My best stroller tip is to mark your stroller with something that will make it stand out. There are designated stroller parking areas throughout the theme parks, and you'll want to be able to spot yours among a sea of others. I tie Mickey Mouse ribbons on the handlebar of our stroller, but I've seen other Guests use balloons, nameplates, and even battery-operated twinkle lights! 

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Kayla. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about the Walt Disney World Resort!
