New Stroller Rental Options Being Tested at Walt Disney World

Many guests find that they prefer to rent a stroller while at Walt Disney World.  Within the entrance to each of the theme parks, there is a stroller rental location that typically only offers hard plastic strollers.  There is a single and double stroller option, with the single costing $15 and the double costing $31.  We have learned that Disney’s Animal Kingdom has been testing three new stroller rentals.  These new strollers are cloth based as opposed to the hard plastic base of the other strollers.  The three options consist of a standard single stroller, a double/tandem stroller and a larger single stroller with more space.  The single and the double/tandem stroller are a turquoise color and the larger single stroller is  a navy blue color.

The larger single stroller is expected to accommodate children that are taller.  There is currently only a  limited number of the strollers available since they are still in test mode.  We would assume that based on guest feedback, these strollers may become a regular offering. The are currently offered on a first come first served basis and aren’t available until 9:45 AM instead of right at park opening.  We expect that these strollers are more difficult to clean than the original plastic strollers.

What do you think of these new stroller offerings?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
