    I'm pretty sure there is no ride that allows for the stoller to come on board. If there is it has to be folded

    If you mean strollers, as in baby strollers, then most rides do not allow them on. You have to park the stroller in a designated area outside the ride. Same goes for restaurants, too.

    A few attractions allow them to be folded and brought on board, but not with the kid still in it - the Railroad, and the Backlot Tour at MGM are two that come to mind.

    okay I thought they might have a parking area for them. I was a little worried about leaving a $170 stroller just out front and it would be gone when we came back. Do they rent Disney strollers? Our mall rents strollers that look like cars, kids love.

    Yes, stroller rentals are available at all the parks. They run $10 - $18 a day, for either a single or double stroller. You may find this page helpful: http://www.allearsnet.com/pl/strol_faq.htm

    awesome, this is a wealth of information. One little last question? What stops someone from taking the rental or my own stroller parked there? Like is there claim tickets or is that being silly to think about this as a problem or concern.

    Honor system stops most people from taking someone else's property. Rental strollers have big signs on them saying who they were rented by. It is best to put ID on your own stroller, as well as something like a bright ribbon or tag that is easy to identify as yours. Stroller theft is pretty uncommon, if it happens it most often was a case of mistaken identity - someone took a stroller that looked just like their own. Theft of things left in unattended strollers is more of a problem.

    Most people don't realize that there are Cast Members stationed at each area responsible for keeping the walkways and area neat and tidy. They frequently rearrange strollers, so you may come out of an attraction to find your stroller isn't exactly where you left it, but usually no more than a few feet away.

    There are Hundreds of home brought strollers out side each ride. There usually is a CM at the parking area, and I have never seen any one lose their stroller. If you child isnt an infant and can sit up by themself, just pick up a cheaper Umbrella stoller and just use that..... I got a cheap one a Wal-mart for around $20..... nothing fancy, but it was alot cheaper than renting a stroller for 5-6 days.


    Rental stroller have a sign on the back with the family name on it, so its hard to take the wrong one
    Have a great Time!!!!

    LMMEO....sorry dame...the picture that brought into my head was just too funny. A folded up stroller and all you can see is a childs arms and legs sticking out the top.

    The RR is the only one I can think of too. We had no problem leaving ours parked
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    You can take your stroller on the trian to Rafiki's Planet Watch in AK, you have to fold it up though and hold it upright next to you. Child can't be in it while in motion.

    Stroller situation

    Strollers were not a concern. Employees or cast were very attentive to Stroller monitoring. I had the same concerns.

    I understand your worries (as I had the same) but I have been to WDW about a dozen times with my stroller and never had a problem. Although, I did buy a travel stroller (Combi) that folds up very small, lightweight, and has a carrying strap for about $50 and brought that stroller with me (instead of my expensive one). It was still cheaper than renting a stroller and if the airline damaged it or it got "lost" I wouldn't be as upset as I would have been with my "expensive" stroller.

    I have rented strollers at WDW and they are great. The biggest cons to renting are no reclining seats and that at the end of the day they need to be left in the park (meaning you have to carry your exhausted kid to the bus and hotel room).

    Have a great trip!
