Kingdom vs orlando stroller rental

We have rented strollers from Orlando strollers in the past, and currently have one reserved for the end of the month. Today I took a glance at kingdom strollers just to compare for some newbies joining us and found they are twenty dollars cheaper and come with a cooler bag and rain cover at no extra charge. Any difference between the two companies as in quality of strollers or service? Love Orlando strollers, but now thinking of canceling.

Hmmm, Id be interested also.
We're going in April and I had printed out some info from MouseSavers, who recommend Magic Strollers. Now Id be interested to hear what others have to say also.

Thanks

Karen

Don't know about Orlando strollers, but this past Feb my husband and I took our 3 y/o GS to WDW and used Kingdom Strollers. We were very pleased. The stroller looked brand new and was very easy to get on and off the bus (just grab the strap in the bottom of the seat and pull, to fold it up). They let us choose the color we wanted and since our last name is so common, asked if we wanted something else on the name tag. It was an orange City Mini and had a cute tag on the back of it that said, "Levi's Buggy". I don't remember a cooler bag, but it did have a rain cover we used one night. My grandson, who has never used a stroller at home, loved his 'buggy' and said it was very comfortable.

I just looked at the Kingdom Strollers website and I might go with them.
The website looks good and the price is right.

We used Kingdom Strollers in August and had a great experience. Our "little boy" isn't quite so little but has a medical condition that affects walking stamina in particular. The Mini GT was a little bigger than the City Mini but not nearly as big as the Elite - a perfect choice for us! Also, Kingdom Strollers gives coolers and rain covers for free if you ask for them, and those were must-haves in August. I am definitely going to use them again!

No experience with Orlando Strollers but we did rent from Kingdom Strollers this past may. The stroller was in great shape and was already waiting for us at our resort. They will give you a rain cover and a cooler for free if you ask for one in advance. We will be going again in 2013 and I will definitely be using them.

We have used both companies in the past, but now will stick with Kingdom Strollers since they now have the Liberty Pushchair as well. They both offer great service, but as far as price and extras, you cannot beat Kingdom Strollers. Our strollers (a double and a pushchair) have been in excellent condition, and the free rain cover and cooler was extremely handy! I have been pleased with the quick response I get when I email questions and special requests. Hope this helps!

Lookin at Kingdom's website now, I think that is who I will be going with. Can I ask how far in advance do you typically order your stroller(s)? We are going the first week of December and am wondering when to order my strollers. Is now too soon?

We went with Kingdom at the recommendation of our travel agent. We're going the first week in November and I made my reservation a couple of weeks ago.

For those that have used the citi mini, am I ok to get this one, or should I go up to the Elite? It says it holds up to 44 inches. I have twin boys. I'm not worried about the weight, b/c neither is near the 50lbs. But one is 43 inces and one is 44 inches. We go 12/4. I hate to spend the extra money for the Elite (plus it is heavier) if I will get by with the mini. Will my 44 inch son be bumping his head?

No expierence with any other stroller companies, but we are using Kingdom Strollers at the suggestions of our travel agent. Not only were they cheaper, but we got a discount refunded to our credit card for saying who reffered us and they have been nothing but curteous and accomodating. I emailed them this morning to add on one day to our reservations and had a response back confirming the change in.. 60 seconds. I kid you not. Based on everyone else's reviews I am sure the stroller will be in great condition too.
