A good stroller is a parent’s secret weapon for Disney theme park survival. Disney World recently amended its stroller policy, making it less convenient to rent a stroller from the park—and even more sensible to bring your own purchased wheels. The recent changes to Disneyland and Disney World’s stroller policy centers around size limits; the new size limits for strollers are 31-inches wide and 52-inches long. Also, stroller wagons are no longer permitted. This means it’s more important than ever to choose the right ride for ideal theme park navigation.
From functional strollers that fold with a single one-handed pull to fun strollers with Mouse ear canopies perfect for shade-seeking nappers—these are the best strollers for Disney World, designed for an easy-going family vacation at the Happiest Place on Earth.
