How to Rent Strollers for Your Orlando Vacation
Theme parks are massive! On average, families walk between 7-12 miles during a long day at the parks. This can start out as fun, right up until mom or dad have to carry the little ones from attraction to attraction. The best solution is renting a stroller! This post will share all the information you’ll need to know about stroller rentals at the Orlando theme parks!
If you have children 6 years of age or younger, we recommend using a stroller. While most 6-year-olds have outgrown using a stroller at home, there is a lot of ground to cover at Disney. You can bring your own stroller from home, however, if you prefer to travel light, there are a few options: you can rent from Disney Parks or a third-party source.
If you rent a stroller at Disney Parks, you’ll run into the risk of limited availability or waiting in a long line and cutting into your time at the park
We strongly recommend our families book a third-party vendor for stroller and scooter rentals prior to their vacation. Scroll to the end of this post to find our preferred third-party stroller and scooter vendors!
During your VIP Tour days, your VIP guide can assist with pushing the stroller for you on your behalf. Families never regret making this decision and investment in their trip!
- Strollers larger than 31” (79 cm) in width and 52” (132cm) in length are not permitted.
- Stroller wagons are also not permitted.
- Strollers are not allowed on escalators. Use of strollers is permitted on elevators and ramps, available at certain locations.
- A child must be removed from his or her stroller while riding on a parking lot tram. You will need to collapse the stroller to board the tram.
- You will NOT need to collapse the stroller to ride the Skyliner.
- Do not leave personal belongings in an unattended stroller.
- Strollers may be moved by a Cast Member due to operational needs.
Disney offers strollers for rent at all four theme parks and Disney Springs. Disney strollers are best suited for children aged 3-7 year olds, they are not suitable for infants. It is important to know that Disney strollers are made of hard plastic and do not recline. If comfort is a priority for your family, we recommend booking a city mini with Orlando Stroller Rentals.
Strollers are also welcome at Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon but are not available for rent.
$15 per day with no deposit
($13 per day for multi-day rentals)
$31 per day with no deposit
$27 per day for multi-day rentals
*Stroller rentals at Disney Springs require a $100 credit card deposit.
You can skip the rental line entirely after your first visit with multi-day rentals. Head to the stroller rental area, show your receipt, and you’ll be wheeled out in no time! This also applies to park-hopping throughout the day. Turn in your stroller at the first park and present your receipt at the next park. You’ll be issued another stroller at no additional charge. (The same applies to locker rentals and ECV/ESV rentals, too!)
Disney strollers are not allowed outside of the parks. Therefore, you won’t be able to bring any Disney stroller with you to your resort or Disney Springs. This is good to note especially, if your family has plans to go to Universal or other areas of Orlando. If you’ll need a stroller outside of your park days, consider booking with one of our preferred stroller and scooter vendors to have during your entire vacation.
Strollers and wheelchairs are available to rent at the left side of Universal Studios Florida™ and Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ entrance. They can also be found across from the security lines at Universal’s CityWalk.
Note: Again, we strongly encourage making a reservation with one of the third-party providers before you arrive on vacation to eliminate the risk of strollers selling out, and waiting in long lines.
$15 per day with no deposit
$25 per day with no deposit
Strollers require a $50 refundable deposit at Universal.
Rentals are per day so keep your receipt if you are going to leave the park where you first rented for your return or to use in another park.
Like Disney, the Universal Strollers are made of rigid plastic and do not recline. After a long day, these strollers can be uncomfortable for the little ones.
Most of our VIP families prefer reserving a stroller with a third-party company. They love the convenience of being able to take their stroller anywhere.
Orlando Stroller rentals offer a variety of strollers at a reasonable price! While they cannot leave your rental with bell services at Disney resorts, they still deliver to Disney and Non-Disney resorts for free. They also offer the option to pick up your rental at Orlando International Airport (MCO) and are conveniently located at the Hold My Luggage counter at B Terminal, Level 1, at the opposite end of Disney’s Magical Express. Included in their price is also a free rain cover, and a small cooler. All of their strollers come with cup holders. They also offer insurance for $15, covering theft and any damage to the stroller. We highly recommend reserving the City Mini with Orlando Stroller Rentals.

Scooterbug has reasonable prices and a variety of strollers. The fact they deliver to your Disney resort without the need for you to be present makes using their services a great option to consider. The Disney Cast Members at the hotel will manage the delivery for you! Snack trays, bag hooks, and bottle holders are all an extra $10 each. You will also want to ask about renting a rain cover; a necessity in Orlando! While Florida may be called the ‘Sunshine State’, it is prone to flash rain storms and has a long rainy season between June and September. We recommend bringing your own rain cover or an extra poncho to do your best to cover your stroller and belongings.

Buena Vista Rentals is a great option when you need to book both a stroller and a wheelchair or scooter. Buena Vista Rentals offers complimentary pick-up and delivery to most Central Florida resorts.
You will need to schedule a specific time to meet with a Buena Vista Rentals service provider. They will give you a call and you can meet them at your resort.
They are our preferred partners for scooters. Compared to Disney, their scooters are more comfortable and faster. The best way to book with Buena Vista Rentals is to call them directly at their main office: (407)-331-9147
