Strollers are a must-have when visiting Disney World with a baby, as there will be a lot of walking and standing involved. But there is also a lot of regulations and other things to consider before just grabbing your stroller to head inside.
Here is what to know about strollers in the Disney Parks.
Renting a Stroller
If you don't want to bring your own stroller, you can rent one at Disney World or from a third party company.
If you'd like to rent from Disney, strollers can be rented at all four theme parks and Disney Springs. You are able to choose from single or double strollers and have the option of renting for one day or multiple days. The cost varies based on the length of rental and whether you opt for a single or double stroller.
You can usually find stroller rentals at the beginning of the parks. Additionally you can purchase or rent a single or double stroller in the Baby Care Centers if you need one for the day.
On the other hand, some third-party companies offer stroller rentals that can be delivered to your hotel or rental home, and picked up at the end of your stay. These services can be more convenient, but may be more expensive than renting directly from Disney so it is best to research multiple options to see what is best for you and your family.
Bringing Your Own Stroller
If you prefer to bring your own stroller, it's important to note that wagons are not permitted in the parks (but exceptions are made for those with disabilities).
Strollers must be no larger than 31 inches wide and 52 inches long. If your stroller is larger than these dimensions, it won't be allowed in the parks.
Also, strollers are not allowed on certain attractions or in restaurants, so you may need to park your stroller in designated areas before getting in line for these rides.

Designated stroller parking areas are available throughout the parks. These areas can get crowded, especially during peak times.

Consider bringing a brightly colored ribbon, balloon, or tag to help identify your stroller from others in the parking area.
Comfort for Baby
Consider bringing a stroller fan to keep your baby cool during hot weather. You can also bring a small cushion or blanket to make the stroller more comfortable for your baby. Additionally, don't forget to bring sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses to protect your baby from the sun.
Strollers are an essential item when visiting Disney World with a baby. You can rent a stroller at the parks or bring your own, but be sure to follow all rules and regulations. Remember to keep your stroller and belongings safe and secure, and make sure your baby is comfortable in the stroller.
With these tips in mind, you and your baby can enjoy a magical and comfortable trip to Disney World.
