If you’re planning a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with your family and are planning on renting a stroller, you might get to test run a brand-new stroller model, thanks to stroller rental testing at the park. For a limited time, the park is testing out two different single- and double-stroller models that better adhere to the new stroller dimension rules currently in effect at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney Resort. Check out the new strollers below!
Recommended for children 50 lbs. or less.
- Daily: $15
- Multi-Day (Length of Stay): $13
The polka-dotted lining is very cute.
The main issue people might run into over time is that while these are lined with coated, waterproofed fabric, they’re still fabric, which may make cleaning bigger messes an issue. So while these are arguably more comfortable (I’ll have to try one out) than sitting or sleeping on a plastic slab, they may not be the most hygienic in the long run.
Here’s a side-by-side with the older stroller models for comparison. (We can’t say we won’t miss the safari print on these.)
Recommended for children 100 lbs. or less.
- Daily: $31
- Multi-Day (Length of Stay): $27
The strollers feature reclining seats and dual cup holders on both the front tray and the handles. (Talk about “Pimp My Ride”…)
See those yellow caps on the wheels and strips on the stroller body? That’s so Disney can differentiate between rentals and people’s own strollers. There’s bound to be a sea of them out there now.
The bottom and back side of the stroller features storage baskets and a number of handy straps to keep bags in place.
Upon testing out and returning these strollers, guests will be asked for feedback on the strollers to see if they will make viable replacements for the older models.
If you’d like to take the guesswork out of pre-purchasing a stroller for your trip, check out the latest “My First Disney Getaway” package that was released today. It includes a stroller rental per day, already worked into the package price.
