Walt Disney World Resort has four theme parks in EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom which is located in Central Florida.

Guests come from all over the world to see the wonders at Disney World. Guest bring their families to enjoy the Disney magic with them.

When families bring small children, Disney allows Guests to rent strollers at the Parks or Guests can bring their own strollers if they fit the Disney policy. Disney explains strollers larger than 31” (79 cm) in width and 52” (132cm) in length are not permitted. Also, stroller wagons are not allowed at Disney Parks.

If Guests need to rent a stroller, single strollers start at $15 daily. For multi-day (Length of Stay), strollers are $13. The single stroller is recommended for children 50 lbs. or less. For families needing to rent the double strollers, they recommended them for children 100 lbs. or less. The daily price is $31, or for multi-day (Length of Stay), the strollers are $27. Downtown Disney has a different policy in place about payment for stroller rental.

Disney’s stroller policy also includes that strollers are not allowed on escalators. Use of strollers is permitted on elevators and ramps, available at certain locations. While heading to Disney Parks strollers must be broken down or closed and children must be removed before entering the tram.

An elementary aged child is in a baby carrier stroller, and then gets pulled out once the Guests are in the park.

Two policies that Guests tend to not realize is that Disney asks Guests not to leave personal belongings in an unattended stroller. And that strollers may be moved by a Cast Member due to operational needs.

On TikTok, one Disney Mom shows how she has to push her four children around the Parks without being able to use a wagon. You can see the video here:
