Disney World’s Stroller Policies

If you are bringing your own stroller to Disney World, there are specific guidelines you’ll want to know. 

  • Stroller Size: Strollers can be no larger than 31” wide and 52” long.
  • Stroller Types: Stroller wagons are not permitted, only conventional single or double strollers are allowed.
  • Designated Stroller Parking: There are designated areas for stroller parking in the parks to ensure there is a clear path for guests at all times. 
  • Strollers on Rides: Strollers are not allowed inside line queues or attraction areas.
  • Strollers in Restaurants: While most Disney quick-service restaurants can accommodate a small stroller, strollers are not allowed in table-service restaurants.

The Best Strollers for Disney World

You have a few different options to consider when it comes to strollers in Walt Disney World, including renting at the park, renting through a third-party, or bringing your own. If you have a stroller that works for you that fits into the parameters of what is required to visit the parks, great! But, if you are looking for our top recommendations, this is what our team has used and can recommend for the parks:

Colugo Travel Stroller ($299.99)

This lightweight stroller comes with its own attached travel strap, making it easy to travel anywhere you go. The stroller can accommodate children up to 55 pounds, and comes with a UPF 50+ canopy, as well as a Rain Cover and Cup Holder. What makes it extra useful for Disney, though, is the roomy basket which has three pockets to keep everything organized.

Nuna Demi Grow ($950)

Intended to use both in the parks and out, the Nuna Demi Grow is a fantastic option for all ages. As the name suggests, the stroller will grow with kids from infants to toddlers up to 50 pounds. It’s also easy to convert into a double or twin like the Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller. If you’re looking for a stroller that you can use anywhere (including Disney World), this is one our team has tried and loved.

Baby Jogger City Mini 2 ($279.99)

One of the most popular travel strollers for a reason, this lightweight stroller can be customized to fit infant car seats, making it perfect for all ages. The stroller can accommodate children up to 65 pounds, with tons of added features that make it easy to maneuver and travel with.

Mockingbird Single-to-Double Stroller ($450)

While not the most travel friendly on the list, if you’re looking for a stroller that can easily be converted from a single to a double, the Mockingbird is a great option to consider for both in the parks and out. It also has a huge storage basket underneath, making it easy to carry around whatever you need through Disney World.

Pros of Bringing Your Own Stroller

  • Comfort: It’s a stroller you and your child are already familiar with and know the ins and outs of. 
  • Cost-Effective: Bringing your own stroller will save on the additional cost of a rental stroller.
  • Convenience: You’ll have guaranteed access to your stroller at all times, in and out of the parks.   

Cons of Bringing Your Own Stroller

  • Transport: A stroller is a big item, and a hassle to travel with. Depending how you’re traveling, the extra cost of a rental may be worth it.
  • Storage: When not in use, you’ll need a place to store your stroller in your hotel room.

Renting Strollers in Disney World

If you aren’t planning on bringing your own stroller, you have a few options when it comes to renting. You can choose a third-party service, or you can rent directly through Disney World. Stroller rentals are available at each of the four theme parks, along with both water parks.

The cost is:

  • Single Stroller Rentals
    • $15 per day
    • $13 per day for multi-day (length of stay) rentals
  • Double Stroller Rentals
    • $31 per day
    • $27 per day for multi-day (length of stay) rentals

Single strollers are recommended for children 50 pounds or less, while double strollers are recommended for 100 pounds total or less. You’ll want to keep in mind when renting strollers through Disney that they must stay in the park, so you cannot bring them back to your hotel room. If you’re visiting more than one park in the day, you can present your receipt at the other park to pick up a replacement. 

Lose your stroller? Replacements are available at various locations when you present your receipt, subject to availability.

Pros of In-Park Stroller Rentals

  • Convenience: You don’t have to worry about transporting the stroller to Disney World, or storing it in your hotel room.
  • Flexibility: If park hopping, you don’t need to transport strollers between each park.

Cons of In-Park Stroller Rentals

  • Cost: Stroller rental cost can add up, especially for a longer trip.  
  • Comfort: Disney World’s strollers are a harder material, so they aren’t the most comfortable for your baby or toddler.  
  • Availability: During peak times, you might have to wait for a stroller to become available.

Third-Party Stroller Rentals in Disney World

Another option to consider is a third-party stroller rental, which will allow you to rent a stroller ahead of time that you can use throughout your stay. Unlike Disney World’s option, using a third-party service will allow you to choose from a wider selection of brands and options, so you can use a stroller you are more comfortable or familiar with.

A few of the more popular third-party rental companies include Kingdom Strollers, Magic Strollers, and Orlando Stroller Rentals. A major upside to these services is that they will offer pickup and delivery services and also have the additional option of adding accessories such as cup holders and rain covers. 

For an example of pricing, Kingdom Strollers offers the popular City Mini Single stroller for $55 when you rent for one to three nights, up to $155 total when you rent 19 to 21 nights. This includes a free drink holder and parent console, rain cover, and cooler bag. Additionally, you can add the option of a snack tray or stroller hook for an additional charge. When you rent, you can choose to have it picked up/dropped off at the Orlando Airport or at a variety of different locations on Disney World property or nearby Orlando hotels.

If you plan on renting other baby needs, a site like BabyQuip is also one to consider. On BabyQuip, you can rent strollers, cribs, toys, car seats, and other baby/toddler needs that will be delivered and picked up directly to you. If you need to rent multiple larger items that are too big to travel with, BabyQuip is a great option to use.

Pros of Third-Party Stroller Rentals

  • Pick Up/Drop Off Convenience: Your stroller can be brought to/picked up from wherever is most convenient to you.
  • Access to Your Stroller Outside the Parks: You don’t need to leave your stroller at the park unlike in-park rentals, so you can have access at your hotel and around the Resort.
  • Ability to Get the Stroller You Want: You can rent a stroller you are comfortable and familiar with.

Cons of Third-Party Stroller Rentals

  • Cost: Stroller rental cost can add up, especially for a longer trip.  
  • Availability: During peak times, it may be harder to get the stroller you want, so make sure to book yours ahead of time.
  • Storage: When not in use, you’ll need a place to store your stroller in your hotel room.
