Kingdom Strollers provided me a complimentary stroller during my Walt Disney World trip for the purpose of this review.
We survived our Walt Disney World trip. I’ll be honest, I had my doubts because my boys are very active and I wasn’t sure how they’d handle waiting in line or walking through the park. But, it all went well and the kids were great!
A couple of factors that helped our trip:
- We went during one of the less crowded times. If you check out a crowd calculator on sites like WDW Prep School, you can see some of the best times to visit. The longest we ever waiting for a ride was 10 minutes.
- We knew when to leave the park. We did have a goal of staying all day. We went for park opening both days, ate lunch there, then left by 2 p.m., so we could swim in the pool or nap in the hotel room. Only one of the days did we return to the park at night, and it wasn’t completely necessary. My kids are 2, 3 and 6, and they would have been fine playing at the hotel.
- The My Disney Experience App. I highly recommend it for getting wait times for attractions and showtimes for fireworks and parades. You can also find Character greeting locations and times or to check out a restaurant’s menu. I used this app nonstop to
- We brought a double stroller for my two boys and rented one for my 6-year-old. Offering all of my children a place to sit, rest and have some shade definitely made the day a bit smoother.
The company we rented from is called Kingdom Strollers and they were amazing to work with. There are plenty of strollers to choose from that could fit your needs. Since I was renting the stroller for my 6-year-old, I needed to find one that was big enough for her.
The Kingdom Strollers website shows photos and offers descriptions, making sure you select the best choice.
I picked the City Mini GT and loved every second of having it. I had a bit of trouble closing it when I picked up, but thankfully, there was a tag on the stroller explaining how to do so.
Once you place your rental order on Kingdom Strollers’ website, the next thing you do is pick your stroller up at Bell Services of your hotel.
You choose the time of delivery and pick up and they do the rest!
When I arrived at Disney’s Saratoga Springs, I went to Bell Services, gave my name and they wheeled out the stroller.
The stroller also has your name on it so it’s easy to find in the park, too.
Returning your stroller the day you leave is easy as picking it up. Just bring it back to Bell Services and the company will come and retrieve it, for free.
Renting a stroller for my 6-year-old was one of the smartest things I did on the trip. We walked a lot, plus it was hot. This stroller had a huge sun shade and was comfortable. They all actually fought over who got to ride in it.
My littlest even snuck in a nap in the stroller once!
So, next time you go to Disney World or the Orlando area, think about renting a stroller so that you not only have it in the parks, but you’ll have it if you visit other places at night like Disney Springs. It’ll save you the hassle of lugging it on the airplane.
