    We have reservations for breakfast at Donald’s Safari Breakfast in the Animal Kingdom before the park officially opens. It looks like a long walk to the Tusker House carrying a two year old. Will we be able to rent a stroller when we enter the park

    Yes. Stroller rentals will available prior to park opening.

    However, with a two-year-old, I can't recommend strongly enough that you use your own stroller rather than renting from Disney.

    Currently the one-day rental price for a single stroller is $15 per day. The price for a one-day rental of a double stroller is $31 per day. If you get a multi-day rental, the prices drops down to $13 per day for a single and $27 per day for a double.

    This means that the five-day rental rate for a single stroller would be $65 and a five-day rental for a double would be $135. Please bear in mind that prices are subject to change. For less than $65, you can buy umbrella-style strollers in the WDW gift shops that can be taken anywhere. i would certainly choose this option over a WDW rental. Other factors to consider:

    - The WDW strollers do not recline. Not a good choice if your child will nap in the stroller.

    - The WDW strollers have limited storage space. As we know, kids need a lot of STUFF.

    - The WDW strollers all look alike and are more difficult to spot in a sea of parked strollers.

    - The WDW strollers can not leave the theme parks. You're going to need a stroller at the airport, at the hotel, and so on.

    The list goes on and on. Bring your own stroller and both you and your child will be much happier.

    If you don't want to bring your own, a good option would be an independent rental agency such as orlandostrollerrentals.com.
