10 Best Strollers For Disney World (Updated for 2019)
Last weekend, I took my mini-Mouseketeers over to the Magic Kingdom and actually took a moment to notice all of the strollers.
You really have to learn the art of bobbing and weaving around strollers at Disney World. They’re everywhere.
Granted, we have taken strollers to the park, but by the time we moved down here, my kids could get by with a simple umbrella stroller ( We use a Kolcraft Umbrella Stroller. It has had many Disney miles put on it).
However, it’s inevitable at a theme park designed for children and families. The younger the child, the more needs there are…and the more complicated the stroller. With all of the walking, bus-hopping and jumping from attraction to attraction, I thought it would be helpful to find out which strollers really are the best for a trip to Walt Disney World.
So, I asked.
I asked the awesome gals in my Disney Fans and Bloggers Unite Facebook Group ‘What is the best stroller for Disney?” They gave me some awesome recommendations!
Several strollers were mentioned multiple times, and it was those that I made note of…. to pass on to you.
So, with all that being said:
Here are the top mom-approved best strollers for Disney vacations.
P.S. For those of you that are brave enough to do Disney with multiple mini-mousketeers, I separated the recommendations between single and double-strollers.
Best Single Strollers at Disney World
Jogging strollers are popular choices, mostly because of their streamlined designs and ease with maneuverability in crowded situations where you sometimes need to walk fast or get left in the dust.
If you’ve ever tried getting to the monorail right after the Magic Kingdom’s fireworks display at night… you know what I mean…
Though rather pricey, I do appreciate that this stroller has a padded handlebar with 9 adjustable height positions. A stroller like that sure would have come in handy when negotiating stroller duty between by 6″2′ husband and my 5″1′ self…
However, it was mentioned that though the Bob makes for a good travel stroller, it can be a little tricky on busses. So, if you plan on using the Disney buses multiple times, you may want to consider one of the other options.
This stroller is very budget-friendly, coming in at under $100. Plus, it seems to have some nice storage, which is a huge must when you are stocking up on souvenirs.

Touting a nice lightweight aluminum frame, this Britax B-Agile Stroller seems to be a winner in the areas of maneuverability and portability.
Not only is this stroller affordable and lightweight ( with a nice storage basket to boot), but it also features a pull-down sun visor that protects little ones from 99% of harmful UV rays.
I can also appreciate the wide variety of color choices….
I think what I love the most about this stroller is the fact that Amazon actually uses the word ” nimble” in the description.
Remember what I said about bobbing and weaving? You’re gonna want your stroller to be “nimble.”
This Uppababy G-Luxe Stroller looks incredibly versatile—appropriate for kids from 3 months old to 55 lbs. Plus, it has a removable seat and stain resistant fabric.
Ya know, so when the dole whip drips on the seat, it can be cleaned easily.
Best Double Strollers at Disney World
Doubles strollers at Walt Disney World are far more common than I ever truly noticed.
I don’t think I was ever brave enough to navigate a side-by-side stroller through the Magic Kingdom, but I can’t deny that one would have been convenient on the rare times when I had my two littles by myself.
I always hated having to park the stroller out in the open when the sky was getting cloudy…which happens almost daily at certain times of the year here in Florida.
If I ever had a double stroller, I am fairly certain it would be one similar to the Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller. It seems that the front and rear seat design would make it easier to navigate through crowds.
Plus, the rear seat fully reclines, providing space to serve as a bassinet or attach a car seat.
Aqua color and 4 cupholders…. need I say more?
The price makes this seem like the BMW of strollers. Overall, it has AMAZING reviews (4.5 out of 5 on Amazon).
Erin from StorybookErin.com (one of my Disney Mom Blogger BFF’s and my Facebook group partner in crime), recommends this stroller highly. She says it’s a “little tough on the busses, but is great for naps.”
And anyone with young kids at Disney knows how vital naps are. Amiright or Amiright?
Need something cheap and lightweight?
Josiah has been out of a stroller for about a year now. Jessie still occasionally uses one.
So, for parents with older toddlers, I sometimes suggest purchasing a cute Disney-fied lightweight umbrella stroller on Amazon Prime and having it shipped directly to your resort just prior to your arrival ( coordinate with the resort front desk, so they know to expect the delivery).
When you leave, you can leave the stroller at the resort for Disney to use for another family who may have a stroller emergency. #payitforward.
And finally, did you know you can rent strollers?
Renting strollers at Disney is totally a thing.
But, I suggest using a company like Kingdom Strollers. You’ll get far more comfortable strollers at a better price than renting directly from Disney. They have single and double stroller options available.
A Disney stroller rental at the park runs $15/day for a single and over $30 for a double… and, yes, it’s the hard plastic seat.
Have you had to sit on hard plastic in 95-degree heat?
But companies like Kingdom Strollers offer high-quality strollers (including some of the models and brands on this recommendation list) and will deliver them directly to the resort when you arrive.
Definitely an option worth considering if you don’t need your stroller in the airport.

And remember, sharing is caring!
