We often get questions from families about whether or not to rent a stroller at Disneyland.
On our trip to Disneyland in May 2009 I carefully observed the other families in the park to see if the Disney strollers were really the best answer.
Here are some pictures of the custom Disney strollers that were available for rent. They were like a modified Jogging Stroller with 4 wheels in total. The seats did not recline and there was a small basket underneath the seat.
I saw everyone from babies to toddlers to school age kids in these strollers.
The problem with a Disneyland stroller rental (aside from the lack of features on these basic strollers) is that you cannot take the strollers outside of the park….like across the way to Disney’s California Adventure Park.
We brought our own compact strollers with us for the twins. We decided to do that because we needed a way to get the kids back and forth to the hotel (about 1.5 miles one way). Our strollers folded up easily (to easily get on and off the Monorail), reclined, and had a decent canopy to protect the kids from the sun.
My recommendation would be to bring your own stroller or make arrangements with a Baby Equipment Rental company (www.baby-equipment-rental.com) to have better stroller waiting for you at your hotel!
