Renting a Stroller for Walt Disney World vs. Bringing Your Own

When your going to Disney with a young child it seems like there is so much to bring along. From possibly diapers, a little extra entertainment, snacks, maybe a car seat and a stroller you feel like your packing your entire house. I’m always looking for ways to make everything easier, stroller rental was one of those. 

We have always taken our own stroller when driving and flying. On our last trip when we decided we wanted to take the car seat I was ready to look for the alternative to taking our stroller. I had already ordered diapers to be sent to the resort, so I just needed one more thing to make the trip a little easier. 

I knew I didn’t want to rent a stroller in the park itself. To be honest they are plastic, have no storage and very little shade. I did some research and came across several companies that rent high end strollers like BOBs and Citi Minis. 

I went with Magic Strollers and I could not have been happier. The reservation process was simple, and I needed the stroller past the 4pm return time so they told me to just add one extra day. It was so easy to adjust my reservation, and honestly so inexpensive. 

Our flight left at noon, but at 7:00 am arrival day I received a text from Magic Strollers that the stroller was ready at my resort. When we arrived off the Magic Express I went right to bell services and the stroller was there for pick up, so easy! 

We rented the Citi Mini GT, and we loved it. I’m actually now obsessed with this stroller and on the hunt for a used one because it’s so easy to open and close, and is light and easy to push in the parks. I may never bring my BOB again. Our BOB is great but it has a stable front wheel and is a pain to get on the bus, and even in our car trunk. My toddler loved how she could climb in herself since she is in the I’ll do it stage. 

It was so nice to not hassle with our stroller, or worry about it getting beat up at gate check. I wore my daughter onto the plane, and when we got off the plane on the walk to the Magic Express just to make it so we didn’t have to chase her. 

If you’re looking for one less thing to have to mess with in your travels to Walt Disney World I 100% recommend using Magic Strollers for your stroller rental needs. They also have doubles available if that’s something you need also. Have you ever used a stroller rental company and skipped bringing your own stroller to the parks?


*I did receive a FREE stroller rental for this post, however I 100% recommend this company and will use them again in the future.

Spring is almost here ( or at least I know so many of us hope so). It’s  time to think about Spring and Summer Style. I love a good straw clutch for Spring and Summer. When I saw these straw clutches at Michaels I knew they were perfect for adding some fun of my own too. 


Find the clutch in Michaels stores or on line here

I decided to use Pom Poms for this one to add some Disney Style fun.  You can find Pom Poms at Target, Michaels as well as here on Amazon. Pinks and White are what I went with as I knew it would be perfect paired with several of my Lilly Pulitzer pieces. I debated threading the Poms or using hot glue and just decided to go with hot glue since I have a more industrial hot glue gun. To determine sizes and colors I  laid them out how I wanted them before I made any decisions. These would also be super cute with an assortment of colors. 

Once I had them arranged I added glue to the back of each one going down the line and pressing them down firmly. 

This was packed in my suitcase and easily survived the trip there and back. 

The clutch itself cost me under $6 when Micheals ran them 50% off. The Poms cost me around $3 or $4 and I hardly touched them it feels like so I’ll use them for other projects.  I’m actually going to grab another clutch next time I am in the store and try to make one with assorted color Poms or tassels that will look great all Spring and Summer long. The possibilities are endless as to what you could do. 

I styled it with one of my Lilly Pulitzer (see similar dress here) dresses, Tory Burch Millers, Lillian and Co Bracelets, and Kendra Scott earrings which all tied together perfectly for a little Disney date night with my husband. This is such a fun and easy way to add a little hidden Mickey into your style. What are some little ways you add a little  Disney into your style?
