Strollers at Disney World

Disney’s Stroller Policy, Stroller Rental Locations, Stroller Costs, and more!

strollers at disney world

Disney World is the ultimate family vacation destination. Aside from the crowds, there’s very little to find fault with this magical resort. But while Disney has excellent transportation options between the resorts and the theme parks, another drawback may be the reality that you will be walking and standing for much of the day.  It’s just an unavoidable part of the experience. And if you have young children, then it’s especially important to be familiar with Disney’s stroller policy in case you choose to bring your own stroller. If you decide to leave it at home, then you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to renting strollers at Disney World.

Disney World has a number of stroller rental locations throughout the theme parks and Disney Springs. This is a convenient option but it may not be the most cost-effective. And you must return the strollers as you exit the theme park for the day.

There are also several non-Disney businesses around the area which offer some cheaper alternatives as well as a wide array of stroller sizes, models, and accessories to rent. As an added convenience, these businesses can deliver a stroller right to your resort or Orlando-area vacation home for no extra charge. Plus, you get to keep it overnight and won’t need to return it until the end of your trip.

Renting a stroller at Disney World or from one of the area providers can reduce your luggage requirements and help to keep your vacation as stress-free as possible. So is this the right option for you?

Let’s first explore Disney’s new stroller guidelines, then weigh the pros and cons of bringing your own stroller, and finally compare the best stroller rental options at Disney World.

Disney World’s Stroller Policy

renting a stroller at disney world

Anyone who has children already knows the importance of strollers. They provide refuge to nap and rest tired legs. And at Disney World, strollers also give you a place to store your baby and adult items while you experience the magic of the theme parks.

But did you know that Disney has strict guidelines as to what you may and may not do as far as strollers are concerned? Well, you do now…

On May 1st, 2019, Disney put forth a set of stricter rules for strollers. These rules are meant to help ease congestion and make the park experience more enjoyable for all of the guests.

Below you will find the new guidelines for strollers at Disney World:

Disney World’s New Stroller Guidelines

The new policy limits the size of strollers to a maximum size of 31″ (79 cm) wide and 52″ (132 cm) long.

It should also be noted that stroller wagons (a type of hybrid stroller) are prohibited despite the fact that they are typically pushed and not pulled.

The good news is that many of the strollers which are currently on the market do fit within the guides. This may include double jogging strollers, as well.

Please check your measurement before you come to Disney World. It would be frustrating beyond belief if you found out that your stroller didn’t meet the guidelines as you enter into the park for the day.

If you plan on renting from Disney World or one of the area’s stroller providers, then no need to worry because the current inventory meets these new requirements. Even so, you should still confirm the size before making a stroller reservation with an off-site provider.

As a general rule, always remember that the smaller the stroller, the easier it will be to motivate through the parks!

Bring Your Own Stroller to Disney World

Now that you know Disney limits the size of strollers to 31″ (79 cm) wide x 52″ (132 cm) long – and doesn’t permit stroller wagons – then the question becomes “does your current stroller meet these guidelines”? And if it does, then do you even want the hassle of bringing it to Orlando?

That is a decision you will have to make yourself. However, here are some pros and cons to help you decide:

Pros

  • If you bring your own stroller to Disney World, you know what you are getting because you are already accustomed to it. You won’t need to guess whether or not a stroller rental will work out as well as the one you are already familiar with.
  • Another benefit is the cost (or the lack thereof). Since you already own the stroller, you won’t need to fork over any cash to rent one during your vacation. And if you are flying, strollers are usually free-of-charge when you check them as baggage (confirm this with your airline before your trip).

Cons

  • The major disadvantage is the inconvenience of a stroller when you travel. You’ll have to lug your stroller around wherever you go including at the airport, hotel, buses, etc. If you only need a stroller for the theme parks, it may be wise to rent a stroller on an as-needed basis and avoid the hassle of bringing your own.

Stroller Rentals at Disney World

Disney World Stroller Rentals

So you have decided to rent a stroller instead of bringing your own. Now what?

The most obvious choice is renting a stroller from Walt Disney World itself. For some, this option is the most convenient and most practical.

Stroller rental locations are located right next to the front gates of each theme park….so you can simply rent a stroller as soon as you enter the park.

Disney offers both a single and double stroller options. Stroller rentals can be made on a per-day basis, or you can opt for a Length of Stay Rental. A Length of Stay Rental will cut down on the per-day cost, but it still ends up being a little more expensive than some of the other options (as you will see below).

Here is a breakdown of the costs and recommendations for Disney’s stroller rental program, as detailed on Disney’s website here:

Single Stroller
  • Daily: $15
  • Multi-Day (Length of Stay): $13

Disney’s Single Strollers are recommended for children under 50 lbs.

A credit card deposit of $100 USD is required for those who rent strollers at Disney Springs.

Double Stroller
  • Daily: $31
  • Multi-Day (Length of Stay): $27

Disney’s Double Strollers are recommended for children under 100 lbs.

Length of Stay Rental

The Length of Stay Rental allows you to save money by pre-paying the number of days that you’ll need a stroller. This option is less expensive than paying on a per-day basis.

When you arrive at the theme park, just show your Length of Stay Rental receipt at any of the rental locations and you will receive your stroller for the day.

Return and Replacement Policy

Guests must return the stroller to a rental location before they exit the theme park.

Stroller Replacement

Once a stroller is rented, it must remain in that theme park and you can’t bring it back to your resort hotel as you leave. If you plan on visiting more than one park in a single day, just present your receipt at the next park to get another (replacement) stroller.

If you misplace your stroller while at the park, simply present your receipt at the nearest rental location for a replacement.

Renting Strollers from Non-Disney Businesses
renting a stroller at disney

So far we have covered Disney’s stroller policy, the pros/cons of bringing your own stroller, and then the details of renting strollers at Disney World. There is one more option: rent a stroller from one of the non-Disney stroller businesses in the area.

The stroller rental companies in the area provide some great options like unique cost structures and different types of stroller models to choose from.  In addition, these rentals tend to be more cost-effective (cheaper) vs. renting directly from Disney.

There are some downsides. These companies and their policies may be less convenient for some guests, depending on who you rent from and what you stroller needs entail. Plus, renting a stroller 24/7 will require you to bring it on buses since you will travel between the resorts and theme parks with the stroller.

Below you will find a comparison of the best stroller rental companies at Disney World.
