Well, just by the picture it seems pretty obvious to me what one I want to pick! lol The first picture is the double stroller option available to rent at the Disney Parks. The second picture is the double stroller option available to rent from OrlandoStrollerRentals.com.
The down low on the services:
Stroller Rental Fees are as follows:
$15/day for single stroller
$31/day for double stroller
$100 credit card deposit required for renting from Downtown Disney location. Stroller must be returned to the original rental location to receive a credit card deposit refund.
Disney DOES offer a multi-day discount. The prices are as follows:
$13/day for single stroller
$27/day for double
Besides the cost to rent from Disney also consider if you will need a stroller should you leave the property for any reason. If you do then renting from Disney is not an option as their strollers must stay on property and do not break down (fold up).
There are MANY other options if you would like to rent a stroller. They are as follows:
$50 for 1-3 nights (total, not per night)
$70 for 4-7 nights (total, not per night)
$90 for 8-10 nights and $110 for 11-14 nights
$65 1-3 nights
$85 4-7 nights
$105 8-10 nights and $125 11-14 nights
$15 first day
$8 each additional day
$25 first day
$9 each additional day
$30 for up to 3 nights, each additional night is $5-$10 depending on the length of your stay
$50 for up to 3 nights, each additional night is $4-$8 depending on length of stay
The great thing from renting from one of the above services is your stroller will be delivered to your resort (often times directly to your room) and can be left at your resort for the company to pick up. You may take these strollers off property and can be easily folded. They are also not HARD like the Disney strollers are.
Bringing your own stroller
Can't really beat free! lol
Some of the reasons you may want to rent a stroller may include:
You just don't have the space in your vehicle to bring your own, you are flying and don't want to worry about checking your stroller. You only have a single stroller and need a double for your visit but don't want to purchase a double. Your double just is not big enough for your bigger kid and you don't want to end up carrying her through the parks.
You might also check out the Orlando area Freecycle and Craigslist. I have heard that both will often times offer free strollers.
