    We are stay at Disney's Pop Century in March. Will need a stroller and it is cheaper to buy a cheap stroller than to rent one every day. Wondering if other people have done this and is there a way to buy used strollers from guest as they leave/

    Hi there, Rosa! We're so glad you've joined us here at planDisney! 

    The countdown is on, and I bet you and your family are getting SO excited to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! Did you know that in just two days you'll be able to schedule your dining reservations? I was never a "foodie" until my last trip to the Resort, but after opening my eyes (and mouth!) to all the delicious treats, meals and snacks, I've officially decided to plan my next trip around dining at some of my favorite places!  If you're looking to reserve anything extra special, like a Character Dining experience, or Fine/Signature Dining, be sure to try for these reservations right at the opening of your 60-day booking window. 

    When it comes to fancy food, I may be a newbie, but when it comes to strollers, I'm a pro.   My oldest is almost 12, my youngest just turned 2 AND there's one in the middle, so we've had plenty of chances to check out different options of getting a stroller to the Resort.  I think your idea of buying a stroller from another family after a one-time use is an interesting one! I've never seen it done, but you might check on social media pages, where you never know what kind of options are available.  While I'm sure that at some point other Guests have had the same idea as you, I wouldn't count on it without making definite plans ahead of time.  

    Some options which have a more reliable outcome would be bringing your own stroller if you have one, renting from an outside company, or renting through the Walt Disney World Resort itself.  If you're flying, gate-checking a stroller is usually easy and free, and this allows you to use your stroller for every moment, even strolling back to your room after getting off Walt Disney World Transportation at night.  

    Renting a stroller from Walt Disney World is also a great option, especially because the price goes down if you plan on using them for more than one day.  We've found that the strollers available on property are sturdy, wipeable, and have lots of leg room, even for our growing 6-year-old.  The best part is that you can rent a stroller at one park in the morning, return to your resort without it, and simply bring your rental receipt to pick up another stroller at a different park in the evening for no extra charge! We love the flexibility of this option, especially because we don't need the stroller outside of the hustle and bustle of the theme parks.  

    If you do decide to purchase a stroller when you arrive in Florida, I suggest bringing a waterproof stroller cover with you. You never know when a little pop-up shower might come down, and it's a great way to keep little ones and your belongings nice and dry!

    Hopefully you'll have blue skies for your entire trip and your little one will be happy and comfortable in whatever stroller option you choose.  Enjoy your vacation!
