we are thinking of renting a stroller at disney and I have a few questions-
do they have a nice top to shield from sun?
do they have plenty of storage space? cupholder?
what can I put on it to differentiate it from all the other disney strollers?
is there a possibility of them running out of single strollers?
Thanks!!

I haven't rented one but my brother did on his trip this past fall and my nephew really didn't like it. He didn't find it comfortable to sleep in or even really relax. He is older than your daughter though, so it may be better for you.

I just wanted to suggest looking into off-site rentals like Orlando Stroller Rentals. They will deliver to your room, are usually cheaper than Disney and then you can use the stroller to get your daughter from the park to bus or car and then from the bus or car to your hotel room at the end of the day. Here's the site http://orlandostrollerrentals.com/
It looks to be about $70 for a weeks rental.

I'm not sure how old your child is, but I don't think I'd recommend Disney strollers for anyone.

To answer your questions:


They do shield from the sun and it is a not like a moveable sunshade, it is a hard plastic top.


I thought they had plenty of storage space with a mesh bag on the outside plus we put stuff on the inside of the stroller as well.

thanks so much for all your replies! I looked up Orlando Strollers and also found a company called Magic strollers? has anyone used either company? does anyone recommend one over the other? The ones from Magic strollers have cup holders, and is maybe a few dollars cheaper-which is always nice. Thanks!

I just rented from Magic Strollers earlier this month. I have used Orlando Stroller rentals in the past. They were both great to deal with. The stollers are really nice and clean. I would lean toward recommending Magic Strollers because they are slightly cheaper, will include a rain cover if requested for free whereas Orlando Strollers charges $10 for the rain cover. Also magic stroller rental came with a parent caddy which gives you a cup holder and a little cooler compartment with held a couple of juice boxes. When I last rented from Orlando Stollers they didn't have any place to put a cup, perhaps that has changed.

Just wanted to add, my husband and I saw a few Orlando Stoller Rentals around the parks, they have a family name tag on them, which also says where it was rented...anyway...they looked NICE!
