Walt Disney World’s In-Park Stroller Rentals
Disney rents strollers at $15 per day for a single, $31 per day for a double. (Yes, seriously!)
Strollers rented from Disney can only be used inside the parks, which is inconvenient when you leave the parks at the end of the day with sleepy children, or you want to “park hop.” If you’re in the Magic Kingdom, for example, and want to hop to Animal Kingdom, you’ll have to turn in your stroller at the Magic Kingdom entrance, walk with your kids from the gate to the bus, ride the bus, walk from the bus to the Animal Kingdom entrance, enter Animal Kingdom, then get a new stroller. If you want to go somewhere where there aren’t any Disney strollers, like the BoardWalk, Blizzard Beach or Fantasia Gardens, you’re out of luck.
If you do rent a Disney stroller, save your receipt, because if you lose your stroller (or someone walks off with it) you can get a new one by showing your receipt at the stroller center. Also, if you park hop, your receipt is good for a stroller at any park.
There is a discount for prepaid multi-day stroller rentals from Disney: $13 per day for a single, $27 per day for a double. MouseSavers.com reader Melissa W notes that when buying a multi-day rental, “the days do not have to be used consecutively. We were told that they have seen people come back the following year or years even and still use unused days. Also, most of the time you do not have to wait in the line to pay for the stroller rental, rather just in line to actually pick up the rental and have your stroller tickets date stamped.”
Rental Stroller Discounts From Magic Strollers
We personally recommend renting a stroller for your Walt Disney World or other Orlando vacation from Magic Strollers, a service provided by a great company we have been recommending for years, Owner’s Locker.
For those staying at a Disney-owned resort hotel: Disney does not allow companies to drop off a stroller at any of Disney’s own resort hotels when the guest is not present to pick it up. (There is one exception; see below). This makes it uneconomical for Magic Strollers to deliver to Disney-owned resorts. If you will have a car, you can swing by the Magic Strollers retail location to pick up and drop off your stroller and get 25% off your rental. Picking up and dropping off is quick and easy, and the warehouse is located just off Sand Lake Rd, roughly halfway between Orlando International Airport and Walt Disney World along the northern airport route. If you are staying at a Disney-owned resort and can’t get to the Magic Strollers location, see below for how to get a stroller delivered to a Disney resort.
If you’re staying at any other Orlando-area resort (which includes all the MouseSavers Preferred Hotels and the other third-party hotels on Disney property including the Disney Springs Resort Area hotels, the Four Seasons, the Bonnet Creek hotels and the Swan & Dolphin), nothing has changed: Magic Strollers can still pick up and drop off when you’re not there, and bell services at the hotel will store the stroller for you. You can have them deliver it to your room or head to the bell desk and pick it up on your schedule. You also have the option of picking up the stroller at Magic Strollers’ retail location and get a 25% discount on the rental fee, if that’s convenient.
Magic Strollers’ rental rates are exceptionally reasonable, and usually lower (sometimes much lower) than the other big Orlando stroller rental companies we’ve checked out. For long rentals (more than 4 nights), their prices on single strollers are better than Disney’s, but even for shorter rentals we think it’s worth paying a few dollars more for a much better stroller, delivered direct to your hotel. For double strollers, even a 2-night rental is a better deal than Disney! There is no minimum rental period – you pay for only the days you need.
- For single City Mini strollers, Magic Strollers charges less than $9.50/night for a one-week rental.
- For single City Mini GT strollers, Magic Strollers charges less than $10.25/night for a one-week rental.
- For single Summit X3 strollers, Magic Strollers charges less than $10.50/night for a one-week rental.
- For double City Mini strollers, Magic Strollers charges less than $11.00/night for a one-week rental.
- For double City Mini GT strollers, Magic Strollers charges less than $12.50/night for a one-week rental.
- For double Summit X3 strollers, Magic Strollers charges less than $13/night for a one-week rental.
- Rates are lower for longer rentals, and slightly higher for shorter periods.
Renting from Magic Strollers can save you a lot of money — for example, compared with renting from Disney, you can save over $140 on a one-week double stroller rental!
Plus, you’ll have the stroller to use during your entire vacation, not just in the theme parks! Magic Strollers delivers FREE to almost any Orlando/Lake Buena Vista/Kissimmee area resort, hotel or condo. If you’re planning to change hotels mid-trip, that’s not a problem. Magic Strollers can deliver to one resort and pick up from another.
Magic Strollers rents top-notch Baby Jogger City Mini Single and Double strollers, which are simple to fold, comfortable and easy to steer. Every stroller comes with a “parent console” (cup holder and Velcro compartments). Magic Strollers completely cleans and sanitizes each stroller between rentals using Ecolab products.
Magic Strollers also has the extra-rugged City Mini GT strollers, which have great convenience features like an adjustable handlebar and a hand-operated brake, which makes parking the stroller a snap. They retain the same ease of use and smooth operation of the regular City Minis.
For the ultimate in style and comfort, Magic Strollers now rents the ultra-rugged Summit X3 strollers, which have extra reinforcement and all-wheel suspension for a smooth ride and extra capacity and durability.
Scheduling your stroller rental is super easy with Magic Strollers, and you’ll be informed every step of the way. You get a rental confirmation email when an order is placed. The confirmation email has a link that will allow you to edit your reservation or cancel it if needed. (See the Magic Strollers site for change/cancellation policies.) If you’re having the stroller delivered, you’ll get a text to your cell phone when the stroller is dropped off. If you’re not in your room when the stroller is delivered, just call bell services when you get in and they’ll deliver it to the room, or stop by the bell desk on your way out and pick up the stroller.

Stroller Delivery To Disney Resort Hotels
The below information only applies to the resorts Disney owns. The MouseSavers Preferred Hotels, the Swan & Dolphin, the Disney Springs Area hotels on Hotel Plaza Boulevard and the Bonnet Creek hotels are not Disney-owned and allow deliveries from Magic Strollers.
Disney only allows one stroller vendor to drop off strollers with bell services at Disney’s own resorts when the guest is not present: ScooterBug Orlando. ScooterBug Orlando is a franchisee of a large national company that is mostly focused on Electric Convenience Vehicles (ECVs or “scooters”). They have run the in-park ECV and stroller program for several years, so they do have experience with strollers, just not as much with delivering them to resorts. We don’t have enough feedback yet on ScooterBug to recommend them, but if you want a company to drop off your stroller with bell services at a Disney-owned resort when you’re not there, they’re the only option.
Other vendors are allowed to drop off strollers if the guest is physically present to accept the delivery. If you are willing to schedule a time to meet the delivery truck, Buena Vista Scooters, who we’ve recommended for years for ECVs and wheelchairs, also offers stroller rentals and will deliver to Disney resorts (as long as someone from your party is there to meet them). Strollers are not their primary business, but they are a good company with excellent service, they rent quality strollers like the City Mini and we can recommend them. If you reserve through our link, they guarantee you’ll receive the lowest available rates they offer.
Bring/Buy Your Own Stroller
Bringing your own stroller will, of course, save you quite a bit of money and ensure that you have the stroller available all the time, such as when you’re going to and from your hotel. Please note: it’s a good idea to check the stroller size restrictions in the Walt Disney World Property Rules to make sure your stroller will be allowed inside the parks. (If you will be using Disney’s transportation system, bear in mind that you will usually have to take your child out of the stroller and collapse the stroller while on buses and boats.)
Another consideration in bringing your own stroller is the hassles of getting it to Walt Disney World, particularly if you are flying. (You can “gate check” a stroller, which saves some of the work – just bring your stroller right to the gate at the airport. It will be tagged and put into the cargo hold from the gate.)
If you want to avoid the hassle of transporting a stroller on a plane, you might consider buying a cheap one upon arrival and giving it to another lucky family or a charity when you leave.
Or buy a stroller in advance and have it shipped directly to your hotel. (Please note: a $5 per package handling fee may apply if you ship your stroller to a Disney resort.) This has the advantage of saving you money AND being less of a hassle (since you won’t have to transport it to Disney yourself). At the end of your trip, either give the stroller to someone or put it back in the shipping box and have the hotel ship it home for you. To ship it to a Disney hotel, it should be addressed as follows:
Hold for guest: (write the full name under which you made the reservation)
Check in date: (insert date)
Hotel’s name and address (which will appear on your confirmation form)
Most people who bring their own stroller recommend a cheap umbrella-style one. They are lighter, making them easier to get on and off buses, and you won’t worry as much about the possibility of the stroller being stolen. (It’s not unheard-of for strollers to go missing in the parks, so it’s a good idea to put something personal on yours. At minimum, write your last name on it using a permanent marker.)
