    I will be taking my 3 1/2 daughter to Disney World the 3rd week of May for 8 days and 7 nights (Pop Century Resort). Other mothers iwth 3 1/2 year olds, did you require a stroller? If so, how often. Worth renting a comfy one from an outside company?

    Hi Angela,

    We have used a stroller for every trip to Walt Disney World since we had kids. As one kid grows older, we have another one at the age that needs one and so on. My oldest son was almost 4 when we took him for the first time and I can't imagine that trip without a stroller.  When you are typically at the parks from morning to night, a stroller is a vital piece of equipment for those tired tiny legs!

    We have always brought our own stroller with us and never rented because we like to have the convenience of the stroller in the airport as well as during the actual vacation. Our stroller has always been a very inexpensive umbrella-like stroller so it travels well (we usually gate check it on the plane). However, if you are planning on renting one, there are several outside independent companies that can deliver and pick-up the strollers at your resort hotel. My fellow panelist, Erin, answered a question very similar to this about stroller rentals and had some helpful information.

    Happy planning!  Your trip is just around the corner and I hope you have a magical time.
