If you’re planning a visit to Walt Disney World (WDW), it’s important to know the rules when it comes to strollers or items that might be used as strollers. According to WDW’s official website, disneyworld.disney.go.com, there are a little more than a dozen and a half items you may not bring into WDW theme parks, including wagons (and all trailers or vehicles that you pull). This would mean you can’t bring your Radio Flyer for your kids to ride in, but if your 4-wheeled vehicle can be pushed like a stroller, those appear to be OK for entry into the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Keenz Double Stroller Wagons combine the safety of a stroller and the utility of a wagon. They’re designed to be pushed, not pulled, and have been allowed to come into the WDW parks. They are, granted, expensive to buy (hovering around $400), but there’s always the rental option.
WDW doesn’t offer Keenz or Keenzs-like strollers for rental, so if you plan to rent one during your visit, you’ll need to go with an outside company. That, in and of itself, isn’t really so bad because if you rent a stroller for your entire visit to Central Florida, it can go with you everywhere (until you check out of wherever you’re staying), as opposed to giving it back to Disney when you leave the park for the day.
Until recently, there were only one or two companies in Central Florida that rented Keenz Strollers and their rental price for a Keenz Stroller generally hovered around $120 for 1-7 days, $140 for 8-11 days and $150 for 12-14 days. Now, I understand that Keenz strollers are an expensive proposition, but wow, that’s a lot of money to spend on renting a stroller.
Happily, there’s now another company in Central Florida that rents Keenz strollers and, even more happily, their prices are significantly lower.
Main Street Strollers, located in Celebration, FL, rents Keenz Premium Stroller Wagons on a sliding scale, starting at just $65. Using their math (adding in $20 increments, depending on the number of days you plan to rent the stroller), their prices are:
- 1-3 days: $65
- 4-7 days: $85
- 8-10 days: $105
- 11-14 days: $125
- 15-18 days: $145
- 19-22 days: $165
- 23+ days: $185
There are, of course, other small costs that may be included, such as cancellation fees and optional insurance, as well as rules regarding drop off and pick up of the stroller, depending on where you’re staying in Central Florida. So wherever you decide to rent your stroller from, make sure to read all the fine print before committing. But as far as cost of renting a Keenz Stroller Wagon goes, right now Main Street Strollers offers the best price, by far!
