If you’re planning a Disney vacation with a toddler and a baby, you’ll need a stroller that can accommodate both kids—and that can navigate the crowds and hills at the parks. We spent 15 hours researching strollers, interviewing a Disney World stroller-depot manager, and assembling and pushing 17 strollers. We recommend these single strollers for Disney because they are lightweight and easy to maneuver, even one-handed, and have ample storage and a comfortable seat.

How We Evaluated Each Product
After testing single strollers, we began our Disney trip with a four-day-two-park tour. The first morning, we assembled and folded and unfolded each stroller (a process I hate) and then used them to get around the parks all day.
We also used the strollers to go on rides, because during my time as a stroller pusher, I’ve learned that off-the-path attractions that aren’t included in Disney’s FastPass system are the best places to find seats for older kids.
Finally, we took a two-day trip to an off-property hotel where the kids were staying. We took these strollers for a spin around the property, navigating sidewalks, stairs, grass, and gravel—the kinds of terrains you never see in a store but that you’re likely to encounter on your trip.
Then we gave each stroller a final check, inspecting for damage and wear and removing all the pieces for easy cleaning.
BOB Gear® Deluxe Snack Tray for Single Jogging Strollers
The BOB Gear Deluxe Snack Tray is the best accessory we tested because it’s simple, sturdy, and easy to clean. Its sippy cup holder and snack tray are removable and dishwasher-safe, and its swivel design releases the tray on either side to swing out of the way for easy loading and unloading.
The tray is easy to install and remove from your stroller, and it’s compatible with the BOB Gear Single Jogging Strollers: Alterrain, Alterrain Pro, Rambler, Revolution Flex 2016+/2.0/3.0, Revolution Pro 2016+, Stroller Strides 2016+ (all BOB strollers sold since 2016).
Baby Jogger® City Select® 2 Single-to-Double Modular Stroller
The Baby Jogger City Select Glider offers all the perks of our top pick, the City Select, but with a lighter weight and a smaller folded footprint. The Glider is lighter than the original City Select and has the same one-step compact fold, as well as a handle that’s covered with leatherette, which gives it an added touch of style.
In our tests, it comfortably held two car seats at the same time, and its generous seat-spacing design made it more comfortable for our children than the UPPAbaby Vista V2, which was narrower and had a less plush ride.
The Glider’s lack of a glider board (which you’d need to convert it from a single to a double stroller) means it’s lighter and cheaper, and it has just as much capacity as the Vista V2.
Contours Legacy Stroller
If you’re a family of more than two people, we recommend getting a double stroller to accommodate your growing family. The Contours Legacy Stroller is one of the most versatile options we’ve seen, securely accommodating a newborn car seat, a toddler up to 50 pounds, or two kids (one in the front and one in the back).
The stroller’s convertible design lets you switch from having one child sit in the front facing you to having two kids sit in the back facing each other. The stroller is so adaptable that one or both kid seats can also be placed facing you, making it one of the most versatile strollers on the market.
It also offers multiple seating modes for one child, including bassinet and infant car seat attachment options, and multiple seating modes for two children, including infant car seat and bassinet attachments, and a second seat facing either direction.
You can also add on a variety of accessories, including an infant car seat adapter, bassinet, and second seat. The strollers we tested were all comfortable to ride in, but the Legacy’s leatherette stroller handle and extra padding on the napper bar made it our testers’ clear favorite.
The Legacy also had a lockable, all-wheel suspension, as well as a large, fully under-seat storage basket. The seat is adjustable, with multiple height settings, and the handlebar is adaptable as well. In our tests, we found the seat on the Legacy was the easiest to recline and adjust, and the footrests were the easiest to adjust as well.
In short, the Contours Legacy Stroller has the most thoughtful design we’ve seen in any stroller—and at a great price, too.
BOB Handlebar Console for Single Jogging Strollers
The BOB Handlebar Console for Single Jogging Strollers is the best option for most people who jog with their kids in tow. It’s roomy enough for two water bottles and a small snack or extra gear, plus has a zippered pocket for a wallet and keys.
The fabric is tough and water-resistant, and it has hook-and-loop straps that attach securely to the stroller handlebars.
It’s compatible with all BOB single jogging strollers: the alterrain, all-terrain pro, blaze, Rambler, Revolution FLEX 2016+/2.0/3.0, Revolution pro 2016+, and Stroller Strides 2016+ models.
BOB Gear Revolution Flex 3.0 Jogging Stroller
The BOB Revolution Flex Jogging Stroller is a smooth, stable ride that would work well for jogging and other outdoor activities. It’s comfortable and easy to push, even for taller parents, and the suspension system on the wheels and the air-filled tires help absorb bumps and debris.
The seat also has good adjustability, and it was one of the only strollers we tested that had a no-rethread harness. It has multiple storage pockets, a large cargo basket, and a cupholder, too.
The padded seat is roomy, and the infinite recline allows you to easily set the perfect recline angle for your child. The downside is that the stroller is heavy (at more than 25 pounds), so it’s not the easiest to lift in and out of the car trunk. But for some parents, the extra storage and added comfort for their kid could be worth the extra weight.
Some Factors That Shouldn’t Be Overlooked
A Disney resort isn’t a place where you can just rent a stroller and go. You have to reserve them ahead of time, which means you need to know what type of stroller you want before you even leave home.
After spending hours reading through all the available reviews from trusted sources, we looked for the following qualities in the top-rated strollers:
Fits Through Attractions
We looked at reviews (and used our own observations) to determine how easily each option fits through indoor attractions. Restaurants and gift shops are accessible through wide doorways, so we didn’t consider those an obstacle.
Easy To Maneuver And Push
We prioritized strollers that were easy to push over curvy paths and able to turn quickly. We considered reviews (and paid attention to our own observations) on how each stroller handled uneven terrain and crowded spaces.
