10 Best Lightweight Travel Strollers

When it comes to travel, having the best stroller in your arsenal is essential. Whether you’re heading out to a theme park or off on an overseas adventure, lightweight strollers are the way to go. Not only are they great for road trips, but they fit into planes, trains, and automobiles more easily than bulky full-size models. Best of all, there are plenty of options available no matter your budget! Look out for those with compact fold and full recline capabilities, as well as generous canopies and the bonus feature of taking an infant seat attachment.

Visiting Disney

Because we always get asked – here is some information on the requirements for Disney.

Visiting Walt Disney World with small children can be made much easier with the use of a stroller. Strollers are not only helpful to keep your little ones close and comfortable while navigating the parks, they also allow you to bring items you may need throughout the day. However, if you’re planning to bring along your own stroller, it’s important to check Disney’s guidelines before doing so as they have recently changed their requirements as far as maximum size and type of strollers allowed into their parks. Strollers must be no larger than 31” (79 cm) wide and 52” (132cm) long, and due to safety concerns stroller wagons are no longer allowed at Walt Disney World. Strollers must be in a folded position on Walt Disney World resort buses — which is how most guests travel between their hotels and the parks — as well as aboard parking lot trams. Strollers may remain open on the Walt Disney World Skyliner gondola system as well as within the Walt Disney World monorail, making mini-getaways throughout your day a breeze!

Investing in one of the best strollers for travel will make your trip go smoothly, without having to compromise on convenience or comfort.
