You’re headed to the Happiest Place on Earth or The Most Magical Place on Earth and you’re thinking about bringing a stroller (for help deciding, check out our Ultimate Stroller Guide), but you have questions.

Lots of strollers!

What can I bring? What makes a good stroller for Disney? What are my best options?

Before settling on a stroller, you should know Disney has the following rules about strollers in in Disney World and Disneyland parks:

    • Strollers larger than 31” (79 cm) in width and 52” (132cm) in length are not permitted. Stroller wagons are also not permitted.
    • Strollers are not allowed on escalators. Use of strollers is permitted on elevators and ramps, available at certain locations.
    • A child must be removed from his or her stroller while riding on a parking lot tram.

Next, what features can help make your trip stay magical?

Strollers in Hollywood Studios

The main thing to consider is that whatever your child is most comfortable in is best. If you don’t want to be back and forth between the parks and your room for naps, having your little one comfy and happy is a trip saver! After that, there are plenty of other features to look for in a stroller. Here are some of the most important:

    • Compact and easy to fold – Running to catch your bus to park hop or make it to your dinner reservations on time?  Make sure you can get that stroller folded quickly!
    • Turn radius/how well does it maneuver – Think about moving through large crowds and how you’ll need to be able to push your stroller in and around those tight spaces.
    • Wheels – Especially if you have a kid who is trying to sleep, wheels can be important. A lot of the walkways are pretty smooth but there are some rougher patches and cracks that could be a rough ride with plastic wheels, which can even get stuck. 
    • Shade – On top of lots of SPF, coverage from the sun is huge, especially in Disney World. Keeping your kid free from sunburn and having a nice shaded area for napping is super helpful. 
    • Breathability – Along with shade, having a stroller with good airflow will help you beat the heat!
    • Size – Keep in mind both the width and length of the stroller. This isn’t a deal breaker for us, but some visitors prefer small umbrella strollers, especially on crowded days.

Keeping your needs in mind, here are our picks for best strollers in these categories:

Most Disney World table-service restaurants don’t allow strollers inside.

Travel System Strollers

Travel systems are a favorite for traveling to Disney with an infant because the car seat is removable and can be taken into restaurants and other areas where strollers may not be allowed. This is great for sleeping babies you don’t want to disturb!

Doona – Best All in One

The Doona Stroller is a convertible all-in-one car seat and stroller. There is no car seat and stroller base; the car seat simply extends into a stroller in seconds. Another plus with this stroller is the variety of colors it comes in, which can come in handy when trying to find your stroller in the sea of strollers at stroller parking. (The flame red one will go with all your Mickey and Minnie decorations!)

So. Many. Strollers.

Best Single Strollers

If you only have one child who needs a stroller, and you are looking for something smaller, single strollers are a great option. While single strollers are easier to maneuver through the parks, you typically are giving up storage space for the size reduction, so this is something to keep in mind.

You will see this stroller all over Disney and there is a reason for it! This is a great stroller that easily folds and will be easy to navigate through park crowds.

Lightweight Single Strollers

A lightweight stroller is the way to go if you are flying or plan on using a lot of Disney transportation. These fold up into a portable size and are easily held while holding your child. Go with a lightweight stroller to save time getting on and off transportation and avoid the headaches you get trying to hurry and pack up bulkier strollers while trying to make a Disney World bus.

Big crowds to navigate

Best Double Strollers

Whether you have twins or two who are just close in age, save space and avoid lugging around two strollers with a double stroller! Double strollers are obviously more bulky than singles, so it will be more difficult to make your way through the parks, but the convenience of only having to push around one stroller as opposed to two individuals may outweigh that. 

Summer Infant 3DPac CS+ Double Stroller

Out of the double strollers, we found this one to be the best lightweight one. This stroller is foldable and also can grow with your children as their needs change. So if you’re looking to save space while still fitting both kiddies in, try this one!

    • Side-by-side seating
    • Lightweight for a double stroller at 23 lbs.
    • Each seat reclines individually.
    • Compact fold and carry handle – perfect for navigating Disney transportation
    • 2 storage pouches, one on the back of each chair
    • 2 large storage baskets, one under each chair
    • Parent cup holder
    • Adjustable canopy with flip-out visor
    • Weight limit 50 lbs. per child

Cons:

    • Plastic wheels
    • 2 individual handles for pushing – not adjustable for different parent heights 
    • Side-by-side seating can be cumbersome.

Best Sit and Stand Strollers

Have two little ones where one doesn’t need a ton of rest in a stroller, or they can be comfortable rotating off and on depending on who needs a walking break? Maybe your child would rather stand than sitting in a seat getting hot. Sit and stand strollers offer the ability to stroll sitting or standing, plus can hold 2 kids. 

Baby Trend Sit and Stand 

The Baby Trend Sit and Stand is both budget-friendly and versatile — can’t go wrong with that! Reviewers did suggest to avoid putting beverages with no lid in the cup holders, as they are right over the baby and a hot beverage spill could be dangerous!
