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).

Other Options
There are MANY other options if you would like to rent a stroller.  They are as follows:
Prices are:
Single Stroller
$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

Double Stroller
$65 1-3 nights
$85 4-7 nights
$105 8-10 nights and $125 11-14 nights

Prices are:
Single Stroller
$15 first day
$8 each additional day

Double Stroller
$25 first day
$9 each additional day

Prices Are:
Single Stroller
$30 for up to 3 nights, each additional night is $5-$10 depending on the length of your stay

Double Stroller
$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
Cost:
FREE!

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.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
