– “Kingdom Strollers made Disney so much more enjoyable!” is a post written after use of a comp-off rental period with the company. Regardless, all opinions expressed in this post are still 100% the author’s own.-
My kids love spending a day at the Parks and at Disney that love just escalates. There’s always so much to do, so much to see, so much ground to cover!!
But when you weigh the pelting rays of the sun along with the crazy humidity and the number of steps a child has to take from one end of a Disney Park to the other, you’re sure to have not just one but several melt-downs through the day.
My son just turned 3 but he is tall and I’d like to say, he has heavy bones. Poor Hubs is the one who generally faces the brunt of it when he pleads to be carried half-way through a long day. Dottie just turned 7 and is tall but not heavy, so the recommendation to try renting a stroller while at Disney was accepted with great excitement from a certain Mom and Dad!
And thanks to the smart prodding, I have to admit that
Kingdom Strollers made Disney so much more enjoyable this time round!
Being the first time we’ve ever rented a stroller, I had a bunch of questions to ask. Kingdom Strollers‘ Matt patiently answered each one promptly without a grimace! His recommendations were definitely taken into consideration, making the whole rental experience, so easy and stress-free.
The day we reached Disney’s Contemporary Resort, we checked in to our room at Front Desk, had our bags sent up, picked up our waiting stroller from the bell desk and headed to the Parks. Simple as that!
And to ensure we knew exactly which stroller was ours and nobody else took off with the recommended City Elite Jogger, Matt slapped a super cute tag to the storage basket at the bottom.
Having both kids comfortably placed in the stroller allowed us to stay at the Parks from sun up to sun down without any melt-downs and with lots of energy conserved!
My daughter was initially embarrassed to sit in the stroller but after day 1, realized it was a smart decision to make the most of her space on the same.
Maneuverability through the Parks, onto the trains, down ramps and onto the shuttles was easy even though this is a large stroller.
Personally, this Mama loved the various pockets, compartments and storage areas on the City Elite Double Stroller as it allowed us to carry quite a bit into the Parks…
The mini cooler was also a great add-on to keep water cool while at the Parks.
The kids insisted they were comfortable and well shaded through the day. And I do believe that as my little man is not the sort who will sit in a stroller for long periods of time otherwise. On this trip, it was a whole different story!
And yes, having the stroller on hand definitely made waiting in line so much easier on everyone!!
Take a look at the video to learn more on why I thought renting a stroller while at Disney was a wise, wise decision!
Yes, on the video I did mention delivery of water crates along with your stroller. Kingdom Strollers does provide you with crates of water if required for your stay (definitely recommended if you don’t have a car and will be relying on Disney transportation through the trip) for a nominal charge.
The stroller you rent also comes with a free rain cover that didn’t need to be used, thankfully, during the week we were at Disney.
On the day we were checking out, we checked in our bags via the airline counter at the hotel, spent 6 hours at Animal Kingdom, drove back to the hotel, handed over the stroller to the bell desk and headed off to the airport to catch our flight home. No paperwork needed to be filled out nor did we need to wait for someone to come to pick up the stroller to leave.
So, so convenient!
And we noticed, through the different Parks, several other families chose to go the Kingdom Strollers route too.
If you take into consideration the awesome customer service, the quality of the strollers (each stroller, by the way, is cleaned thoroughly after each rental, so you do get a clean stroller for use.). the affordability of renting outside the Parks, ease of not needing to lug a bulky stroller from home and convenience from start to finish, Kingdom Strollers wins hands down!
When you visit large tourist attractions, do you rent or carry along your own stroller?
