    with a 5 yr old. Is it better to take our own umbrella stroller or rent them at the parks? The website says it's $13/day. Is it hard to rent a stroller in the park?

    Hi Gerardo!

    This is a great question, because I have a child that was 5 for our last visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Taking your umbrella stroller has perks because you will be able to have it readily available at the end of a long day in the parks while you are on your way back to the monorail, bus or your car. If you choose to rent a stroller, you will have use of it while you are in the parks; however, the strollers are easy to maneuver and can be quite comfy for some children. Renting a stroller is a super easy process, and you will have the opportunity to obtain a length of stay rental. This will come in handy because you will not need to go through the purchasing process as you visit each theme park. Just show the Cast Member your length of stay documentation, take possession of the stroller and you are on your way.  Either way, I think that you will find that you have made the right decision. I hope this helps.

    Have a magical day!
