    Should I rent a stroller or buy one ?

    Dear Jacqueline,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your stroller question!

    Strollers are definitely a "must have" at the Walt Disney World Resort. With long days of walking, and nice warm sun, kids definitely get tired out quickly at times there!

    Whether to buy or rent a stroller is a very personal question that you will have to determine, but I can tell you that there are several options. If you want to buy a very inexpensive stroller at your local store, you can definitely do that, but many of those do not have sun shades and are quite small. 

    The next option is stroller rental while you are at the Walt Disney World Resort, which includes strollers both within the parks or also rented from Preferred Stroller Providers that are local to Orlando. You may consider the different choices and what works for your family.

    Moms Panel tip - There are a lot of strollers that look the same. I recommend tying a balloon or a bright ribbon around your stroller handle to find it easily in a crowd!

    Hope that helps!
