New May 1, 2019 Disney introduces a stroller policy change —so today we are sharing the best double strollers for Disney that meet these new policy restrictions!
The forums and Facebook groups are buzzing with this new information and everyone is questioning, what does this mean for them? It’s a fair question.

If you are planning a trip to Disney with a baby or toddler then you are going to want to make sure your stroller is in the clear!
What is Disney’s Stroller Policy Change?
According to the latest announcement, starting May 1, 2019, strollers that are bigger than 31″ (79 cm) in width and 52″ (132 cm) in length will be prohibited. Until that point, strollers greater than 36″ x 52″ are not allowed. This is a reduction of 5 inches and may rule out some double strollers that are on the larger side.
The other big change is that stroller wagons will not be allowed. This will likely have a greater impact on families than the actual size restriction changes.

Currently, wagons are prohibited but stroller wagons like Keenz and Veer are super popular for lugging both kids and stuff around—it seems these are the targets of Disney’s stroller policy change.
Why the Stroller Policy Change?
As parks continue to attract massive crowds and new attractions, like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will draw even more. Disney is working to ease congestion and make it easier for people to walk around (which is a challenge with most strollers, much less giant ones).
What about Renting a Double Stroller at Disney?
The policy change does mention that if you were planning to rent at Walt Disney World or from a rental company, you are probably fine as they already meet specifications. And most traditional single and double strollers already meet these standards, so there isn’t much to worry about.
The good news is most side-by-side double strollers from recent years do fall into the new requirements just fine.
So if you are looking at bringing your own stroller, here are Double Strollers that are allowed under the policy change and those that will not be (though be sure to double check your stroller’s specs).
