Has anyone ever rented stroller at amusement park? (Busch Gardens)

How are they? Like mall strollers or like regular strollers?? I am flying to Florida tomorrow with my almost 3 year old and still debating bringing our umbrella stroller. He HATES being in a stroller now, but I can't bring our full size one on the plane but the only day I will prob even use it is in Busch Gardens so I thought about maybe renting one. But I'll prob just end up bringing ours

I've rented one before at Disney World when we forgot to put ours in the car (I live 30 min from Disney, how I forgot it, I'll never know ). I think they are pretty great! Really easy to push, places to put stuff. Just the price stinks, I think it was like $20.

I find it really easy to travel with strollers. You can bring it all the way up to the door of the plane, and then they load it for you. Then when you come off the plane, it is waiting outside the door for you. (at no extra cost) There is no way I could have done Disney World without our stroller. Even if our son wasn't sitting in it, it was so nice to have to store our bags, extra change of clothes for the little guys, the camera, things we bought, etc. I attached carabiners to the sides of the strollers so that additional things could be attached and easily reached. We attached water bottles (that had handles) and those little water bottle fans to them. It was hot when we went and it was nice to have those things within reach.

My son was almost 3 when we flew to Florida last year. We also have a Sit N Stroll which is awesome for flying. We took that as well. It is a car seat specifically designed for flying that turns into a stroller (wheels pop out the bottom and a handle pops up). It fits down the isle of the plane then folds up and serves as a car seat. It is really nice if they are sleeping on landing so you don't have to wake them up to get going. It has been such a good investment and is perfect for ages 2-4. Something like that may be the only thing you need to take. Otherwise, I would recommend taking a full size stroller so that you can store things better then those little umbrella strollers. I find the easiest stroller to fly/travel with is the Peg Perego Pliko P3 stroller which folds up like an umbrella stroller but is actually a full size stroller. It also has steps on the back for an older child to 'ride' on.

Have fun!

Thanks guys! I have just decided to take our umbrella stroller. It is actually pretty roomy one that reclines, and has storage underneath. There is no way I'm buying a new stroller since we never use one anymore except trips and we leave tomorrow LOL! We fly alot and usually take it anyways, but he just walks next to it and I push it! But it is nice to shove everything under. Thanks for the advice on the carseat adapter thing... i thought about buying that last year when we flew alot with him... but I end up checking my carseat because whenever we put his carseat on the plane seat he kicks the seat in front of him!! He sits pretty good in the seat by himself and feels like a big boy. Plus it is so much more roomy for the 3 of us.

We have done both. Depending on the age of the child, taking your own is a good idea. If they are older than 3, rent the ones at the park. My son is 7 and we still rent at Disney. Kids get tired and having a stroller to sit them in and all your stuff is a great investment.
