    We are going to visit Disney World with a 6 year old and 5 year old. Did anyone use strollers or did you just go back to the hotel to rest during the day? I read it's roughly 8 miles on average you can expect to walk a day.

    Hi Tiffany!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I have a six-year-old daughter and twins that are four. We just returned from Walt Disney World, and I promise - we used strollers! The other night I logged 1.2 miles in an hour - and that was only at our Resort hotel! We do make a point of heading back to the hotel for a rest or a swim, but we take advantage of our strollers to transport the littles and all.the.things!

    You have a couple of options when it comes to stroller rental in the Parks. First, you are free to bring your own, but make sure it falls within the clarified dimensions. Double-strollers are welcome (and might make your life easier, since it will be just one to keep track of for the two kiddos), but no wagons are allowed!

    Probably the most convenient so that you don’t have to bring a stroller on the plane (I’m assuming since you’re from Pennsylvania), is to rent a stroller once you arrive. You can do single day rentals or a length of stay rental (which is discounted). Stroller rentals are right past the entrance of each of the Theme Parks and at Disney Springs.

    Disney also has a list of Featured Providers from whom you can rent. They will drop off your rental at your Resort hotel and pick it up the day of your departure. We have used Kingdom Strollers several times and have been very happy with their products and service!

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. chEARs to a magical vacation!
