    I will be traveling in March with my 23 month little girl. I was wanting to know if it is more convient however to rent a stroller or to bring my own. Also, how much would it cost to rent a stroller for 7 days. I would want a double stroller?

    I absolutely 100% recommend that you bring your own stroller from home rather than rent one at WDW. Here's why:

    - The Disney strollers are expensive. Prices can change, but currently a double stroller rents for $31 per day if rented on a daily basis, or $27 per day if you pay for more than one day at a time. These means that a 7-day double stroller rental would be $189.

    - The Disney strollers are not comfortable. The stroller model available at the Magic Kingdom was recently changed to improve this point a bit, however the WDW strollers are still hard plastic with no padding whatsoever and no ability to recline. If your child might nap in the stroller, this could make for a very stiff neck.

    - The Disney strollers can not leave the theme parks. There is lots of walking everywhere at WDW, not just at the parks. You'll be walking from the restaurant at your hotel to your room, from your room to the pool, from the bus to your room, from the park to the bus stop, from the entrance to your gate at the airport, etc. All this walking really adds up for a preschooler. You're going to want a stroller outside the park too, this doesn't work with a rental.

    If for some reason you still didn't want to bring your own stroller from home, there is the option of an Orlando area rental from an independent source. Former Disney "Mom" Bret has had very good luck with orlandostrollerrentals.com. These may be a more attractive stroller source for you.
