Perhaps the next question should be about Wheelchair/EVC rentals. I have noticed more and more outside EVC rentals
No! You can't make me! I don't WANNA sit this one out!!!
1. I already paid for the thing - why pay the astronomical prices at the park?
2. Use in the airport, Downtown Disney, outlets malls where there aren't necessarily rentals available.
3. I don't have to wait in yet another line for the park's stroller.
4. Did I mention the astronomical prices?
Now, if every place were like Holiday World where you can rent a wagon for $7 or double stroller for $10 ($31 at WDW), I'd leave my gear at home.
But...if you choose a popular model, especially from a discount retailer such as Walmart or Target, you'll want to find a way to personalize it. Years ago we had to figure out which of three Winnie-the-Pooh umbrella strollers were ours (the strollers had been organized and put into rows). We nearly walked off with someone else's and their small souvenir bag before we snapped.
We chose bright purple duct tape on the handles. Worked like a charm.
I'd say just go ahead and buy the stroller. Your gonna need it more than once anyway.
If you have your own, well, it's unlikely that will be stolen.
