* A free stroller rental was given to me in exchange for an honest review. This review is also posted on RealMomsDisney.com!
One thing that I recommend to everyone who is traveling with small kids to Disney is this: RENT A STROLLER!
Unless you absolutely need to have a stroller in the airport with
you, I highly recommend skipping that fiasco. It's just one more thing
that I personally do not want to deal with on top of everything else.
However, if you've got little kids like I do, then you really do
need a stroller at Disney. Why? Well, for starters, it's a TON of
walking. In fact, I wore my jawbone step counter while I was there and
logged 15,000 or more steps every single day. We ended up walking over
50 miles during our trip! I know that my kids couldn't have handled all
This time, I decided to rent from Simple Strollers.
We went with the city mini double stroller. We've used this stroller
before and really love how easily it pushes through the various park
terrains and its simple folding mechanisms. Since we utilized Disney's
bus system quite a bit this trip, it was important to have a stroller
that folds easily and quickly (strollers must be folded on the bus).
The rental process itself was so easy! Just head over to their website
and browse through their list of strollers. In addition to the City
Mini's they have BOB's, Baby Trend Snap and Go's and Joovy Sit and
Stand's. They are also the only company offering triple strollers! They've got the Joovy Big Caboose Sit and Stand Triple for those of you with three littles!
I added on the optional insurance just for peace of mind. One thing I
loved about renting from Simple Strollers is that the include a
drink/storage caddy. The company we used last year did not and we had no
where to store drinks! You can also rent other goodies like rain covers
and car seat adapters from them.
also delivers to you at your resort. When you make your online
purchase, just let them know what time they will need to drop off and
pick up the stroller. Simple! Plus you don't have to worry about messing
with the bell desk (which can form quite a line!). They hand deliver
the strollers to you. Everyone was so nice and accommodating, even for for those coming in on late flights. I highly recommend them!
