We got rid of our double stroller last year. My daughter is 6 and she was really too big for it and we never used it anyway. When we decided to go to Walt Disney World in January, we felt like we needed to use a stroller for the trip. She had surgery in November and I didn’t want her to try to walk all day long.
If you have been to Disney, you know their double strollers are not only hard as rocks, hard to push and very uncomfortable if your child falls asleep in them, but they are also $31 a day! Over our 7 day trip that would of been $217!
So I decided to look around online for off site stroller rental companies. There are quite a few, but I decided to rent from Theme Park Strollers. Their double stroller was priced at just $120 and looked really comfortable. A double stroller for 1 week cost just $82! Wow! That is a huge difference.
Theme Park Strollers was so awesome to work with. I requested a stroller just 3 weeks before we left and they had one in stock. They even deliver to your hotel and have it waiting on you at luggage services. Which totally made me feel like a celebrity.
The stroller was so easy to fold up. Just pull up on the strap and it folds flat! It also has a nice size basket underneath to store all your goodies (remember not to leave anything valuable in the stroller, theifs go to Disney too!) and it is easy to push even when it weighs a ton.
In the mornings, we would find a stroller parking area that was manned by a Cast Member and we would leave our stroller for a few hours. My kids are energetic in the morning. By early afternoon, they both needed a breather in the stroller and it was great to have. Jacob fell asleep in it almost every day!
We will definitely rent an off site stroller when we go again. Theme Park Strollers really impressed me with their customer service and their love of Disney, but you can also find more companies by searching ‘stroller rental Orlando”.
