Strollers

BOB Gear Revolution Flex 3.0 Jogging Stroller

Why our readers love it: There are numerous reasons why this stroller is loved by our readers. The number one reason though is how easy it is to steer this stroller making it that much better for getting around the parks.

“There is no way I would ever go to Disney with a child without the BOB stroller. There is no comparison! My sister took a different jogging stroller and it did not compare.” – Kelly H.

This stroller has a lot of features that help make it a top pick for our readers. When you are spending long days in the parks moving around, it can be nice to have a stroller that makes it easier on you. This one makes weaving through the parks a piece of cake. Our readers love the adjustable handlebars as well as the large canopy to keep your kiddo covered from the blazing sun. It also has storage space underneath for your bags. It is a bit pricey so it may not be for everyone which is why we have included another option.


Summer 3Dlite Convenience Stroller

Why our readers love it: This stroller is lightweight and easy to fold while still being durable and sturdy making it travel-friendly.

“Last time we went with a 5 month old and 3 year old I took my double stroller. It was comfortable for my baby but it was a pain to navigate. This time we took 2 umbrella strollers and this one is my all time favorite! It’s the only one that reclines and has a bit of storage on the bottom.” Daniela O.

This affordable stroller is an easy addition to your Disney trip especially if you will be staying on property and using Disney bus transportation. It is simple to fold up, doesn’t take up too much space or it’s a bit easier to hold onto while you’re going to and from the parks. The reclining factor on this stroller is also a big sell for many families traveling with their little ones who might need to use that feature for naps during the day. The storage underneath, while not huge, does provide enough room for a small bag and a few other items.


Kingdom Strollers

Why our readers love it: This stroller rental company allows you the flexibility to travel without having to bring your own and you’ll get a better price here than you will at the parks.

Sometimes you don’t want to have to bring everything you own with you on vacation and renting is a better option. Or maybe your kiddo has already outgrown using a stroller at home, but after the first 14-hour day, you realize they probably can’t continue like that for the rest of the trip.

Kingdom Stroller is the go-to rental company for many of our readers. They have several different options to choose from to fit your needs. Kingdom Stroller provides free delivery/pick-up to wherever you are staying and even has a counter at the Orlando International Airport to make it even easier on you.

The biggest perk here is that all Kingdom Strollers are padded and recline to help make your child more comfortable. The strollers available for rent at the theme parks are hard plastic and do not recline. Whether you know you’ll need to rent a stroller for your trip or it’s a last-minute decision once you’re on vacation, Kingdom Strollers has you covered.


Stroller Accessories

Sport-Brella Versa-Brella SPF 50+ Adjustable Umbrella

Why our readers love it: The umbrella is so simple to use and is able to attach to anything. The inexpensive cost and its versatility makes this worth it for our readers.

“This umbrella hooks on any stroller, pivots and takes up zero space. It makes it easy to find your stroller, provides shade and hello – you can push the stroller and not get soaked in the rain. Because who can push a stroller and hold an umbrella? This is one of those I wish I had had for the last 10 years, but I just found it. Many times, we sat eating popcorn or waiting and you can pivot it to sit next to the stroller on a bench or curb and have shade. Amazing!” – Jenny S.

The review from our reader tells you all you need to know about this product. At first glance, this may seem like an item you don’t need, but it does offer a lot of benefits for your long park days. Staying out of the sun as much as possible certainly helps keep you from tiring out quicker and this is a perfect accessory for that. While this may not help too much in a downpour, it’ll certainly help during those small showers that are so common in Orlando.


Battery Operated Stroller Fan

Why we and our readers love it: The easiest addition to your park items – simple to attach and use. Comes with a rechargeable battery so you don’t need to bring extra batteries.

This particular fan came recommended for its ability to attach to almost anything and for how easy it is to do so. It’s adjustable and comes with multiple speeds to suit a variety of comfort needs. The design is baby-friendly so that they can’t stick their little fingers in it and keeps them safe. The rechargeable battery is a plus and it will connect with any USB outlet. You may one to consider getting one of these for your little one in the stroller and for yourself to keep you cool as well!


Diaper Bags

JuJuBe Be Right Back

Why our readers love it: The organization that this bag provides is unmatched and makes it perfect for days at the parks when you need to bring a lot of things with you. 

The JuJuBe brand comes highly recommended for a lot of their products and the Be Right Back diaper bag is a favorite among parents heading to the parks with little ones. These bags are a bit bigger so they can hold a lot of stuff. There are multiple compartments and tons of pockets to help with organizing everything. They are high-quality and long lasting so you can get a lot of use out of this bag. They are easy to wipe down if they get dirty and can go in the washing machine which is a bonus.


Clear Tote Bag

Why our readers love it: These are an inexpensive option for carrying all of the items you know you’ll need to be able to grab quickly throughout the day.

“I like to throw all the necessary baby items into these clear bags for security and so I can easily see what I’m grabbing for. They are easy to clean, and not very expensive, so I don’t worry about messing them up.” – Kayla Y.

The clear tote bag makes life a little bit easier for park days – you can see everything that’s in there and just grab what you need. These aren’t designed to be carried around all day long, but if you have a stroller with a place to stash the bags, these can be great to store all of the items. Plus these are very affordable if you don’t want to break the bank on a new bag.
