    HI! Traveling in Sept. w/ DS2 and was wondering if WDW still sells strollers on site? If so what are they like (quality, style, access., etc.) and what is the price? Are they worth it or should I try lugging ours from home? THANKS! BTW LUV THE PANEL!

    When I was at Disney World earlier this year there were Kolkraft umbrella-style strollers for sale in all the resort gift shops as well as at a few shops in the theme parks. The strollers were red, had a cup holder, and a flat roof-like sunshade. Prices can change, but at the time I saw them, the strollers sold for about $45.00. I thought the strollers looked quite sturdy (certainly more sturdy than the $15 model I saw at my local CVS this morning) and would withstand a week of park touring with plenty of use afterwards. In my opinion, a child would be more comfortable in this fabric stroller than in the hard plastic Disney rentals.

    But as far as the "lugging ours from home" thing goes, I personally found our strollers to be indispensable at the airport when my girls were preschoolers. Even if there were no child in the stroller it served us well as cart for all our carry on "stuff." Every airline that I've ever flown will allow you to gate check a stroller, which means you can use it right up until the time you board the aircraft and have it handed back to you right when you disembark. I found having my own stroller to be quite easy.
