Disney Stroller Rules and Restrictions
One of the things that surprise people most when planning their trip to Disney is that there are quite strict rules and restrictions about using a stroller at Disney.
Historically there were no rules regarding the size of stroller that you could take into Disney however in 2019 Disney instigated a new stroller policy which limited the size of stroller you could take into the parks.
Now the strollers you take into the park can be:
- no larger than 31 inches 0r 79 cms in width
- no larger than 52 inches or 132 cm in length
Also at the time that the stroller rules changed Disney also Brought in a no stroller wagon policy which hit those with larger families most. Therefore it is really important when picking a double stroller you stay within all of the above rules as you can be denied entry if your stroller doesn’t meet the requirements.
Where can I use a Double Stroller at Disney?
- Rides: strollers, single or double are not allowed in any of the ride queues at Disneyland or Disney World.
- Restaurants: many of the restaurants but especially those character dining, speciality restaurants and even some of the quick service restaurants will ask you to leave your stroller in designated stroller parking and not brought inside.
- Transport such as trams in the park and parking lot trams or on the Disney buses
What to Look for in Double Strollers for Disney World and Disneyland
We are very lucky to have traveled to many places around the world with our toddler and baby and what we have found, is that despite what some people say there is no one travel stroller that works perfectly in location around the world.
For instance if you are looking for the best stroller for cruise ship travel you want something that is lightweight and collapsible into a very small space. While for ancient cities in Europe such as a stroller for Italy or even using a stroller in Japan’s ancient city you will want something that has big wheels and that is robust enough to manage cobbles.
But what about Disney – what should you be looking at in the best double stroller for Disney.
Easy to Fold
One of the key things for a stroller in Disney is to make sure it is easy to fold down especially if you plan to use Disney transportation such as the buses. Children cannot remain in the stroller on a bus and you will need to fold it down.
Be sure to pick one that is easy to collapse and practice doing it in a low stress environment.

Individually reclining seats
If you are using a double stroller you will want to make sure each seat reclines on its own. That way each child can nap on their own schedule.
Has a Sun Shade
It can be really sunny in any Disney park around the world. To help if you are traveling to Disney with a baby or toddler especially at nap times we recommend choosing a stroller with a large sun shade.
Has a Rain Cover
The rain showers can come in thick and fast at Disney World and in Paris and Tokyo in particular. You can easily go into a ride attraction queue with sunny weather and come out to find your stroller soaked after a downpour. Therefore it is really important to remember your rain cover when in the parks.
Has a standing platform
Not all double strollers have a stand option. If you want to have this option be sure to check that it is offered on your stroller of choice.
Best Double Stroller for Disney World and Disneyland
In this section we will round up the best Disney approved double strollers with some of their pros and cons to help you make your choice for the best double stroller at Disney.
Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 Double
The Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 Double stroller could be a perfect pick for Disney. It is extremely agile with great rubber tyres that would work on any type of terrain.
It also has a great weight range as it works from newborn all the way up to 22kg which means it will have a long shelf life for your family across multiple Disney trips. It is also very easy to fold which you will do a lot at Disney.
For me this is one of the best picks for a double stroller for Disney World.
Baby Trend Expedition Double Stroller
This is a great double stroller that comes at a much reduced price tag to the above at only around c.300USD which is good value for a double stroller. And it still has important double stroller features such as each seat reclining independently and it also has great storage.
There is also a decent sun shade.
KolKraft Cloud Plus
The Kolkraft Cloud Plus is the cheapest double stroller we recommend for Disney. This double stroller is ultra light weight at only 23lbs and at only 31 inches wide easily meets the Disney stroller regulations.
It also has a large canopy which is great for sun protection and is easy to recline.
It is worth noting that while there are 5 different layers of recline but this stroller doesn’t lie completely flat and isn’t the best stroller on the list for napping if that is your priority.
joovy Scooter x2
This mid price stroller, the Joovy Scooter X2 has some great features. For instance it has one of the best sun canopies on the market and a huge stroller basket and it has the all important independent seat adjustment.
Joovy Caboose Too Tandem Stroller
Joovy is one of the go to brands for double strollers on the market that are compatible with Disney regulations.
Unlike the other double strollers on this list the seat configuration is one in front of the other rather than side by side seat arrangement. The front seat is for the younger children – from six months to 2.5 years while the rear bench seat and standing platform goes from 2.5years until the child meets the weigh of 45 pounds.
I will admit this isn’t my favorite stroller on the list as my little ones don’t like being in the behind seat however if your child doesn’t mind this it may be a perfect choice for you.
But what I do like about this is that children can stand on the back platform which my kids love.
Baby Trend Sit and Stand Ultra Tandem Stroller
The final stroller on the list is the baby trend sit and stand ultra tandem stroller. It is a really flexible stroller offering multiple combinations of double seats or sit and stand combos.
And at under 200USD this is one of the cheaper strollers on this list.
Can you rent a double stroller at Disney
You can indeed rent a double stroller from Disney (world and land). In Florida you can rent a double stroller from Disney springs or from the parks themselves. However the only downside to this is that they can not be taken outside of the parks which is not helpful if you want to use a stroller to get across the parking lot at Magic Kingdom for instance.
There are also several companies that will rent double strollers which will delivery to your resort or hotel room. These can be used outside of the parks which make them a more flexible option.
