Comfort, size, price—these are conditions you would normally consider when buying a stroller for everyday use. However, you are here because you want the best stroller for Disneyland, and when it comes to touring one of the nation’s greatest theme parks, you’ll want to reconsider your selection criteria.
That’s because a trip to any of the Disney Parks is a whole new experience. There are crowds, narrow alleyways, checkout lines, and worse, lots of other strollers. Bobbing and weaving your way around for a day is enough to give you a whole new perspective on what a Disneyland stroller should be, which is maneuverable and highly portable.
That’s exactly what the City Mini 2 is, a nimble piece of work from Baby Jogger. If there ever was a sport for racing strollers, this would be the one you’d want.
The City Mini 2 has everything you would need on a trip to Disneyland. It is lightweight, agile, portable, and full of useful features. Trust that you’ll get more than a few trips out of this robust stroller.
With Disneyland’s new stroller rules as of May 1, 2019, may not be larger than 31” (79cm) wide and 52” (132cm) long the City Mini 2 is a perfect stroller.

Build Quality and Design
It’s not a word you’ll hear thrown around a lot when describing strollers, but the best word to describe the City Mini 2 is “nimble.” It is remarkably well built in a compact, sleek manner that suggests high-end manufacturing.
It is an eye-catching stroller in all respects. It is perfectly built to handle quick turns and rapid change of pace. Dual front wheels give its movement more balance while two larger, thicker rear wheels offer stability for a smoother ride.
From the moment you hold it, you can tell that it is exceptionally light (it weighs less than 20 pounds, so it should be). Baby Jogger have gone ahead and added a ton of other features to complement the stylish design of the City Mini 2, which is, so far, the only stroller you’ll want when exploring the Disney Parks.
What more could you ask of a seat? The City Mini 2 has one of the best seats out there. It does everything your baby might need to get comfortable. It can recline to a near-flat position when they want to relax and enjoy the stroll, or positioned upright to allow them to enjoy their environment.
There’s also plenty of calf support thanks to an adjustable footrest. It’s nice that you can switch up the angle to suit your baby’s height as well as their preferred sitting position.
Though not heavy, the seat is comfortably padded and is equipped with the customary 5-point harness for baby’s safety.
Storage is something you’re always going to need on a stroller, whether you’re making a quick trip to the mall or going to Disneyland. Fortunately, the City Mini 2 comes with plenty of storage space.
There’s an extra-large storage basket under the seat that’s easy to access from all angles. You always need this kind of storage space for your diaper bag, snack bag, a few toys, and perhaps a souvenir or two.
The City Mini 2 would have been an even better stroller had Baby Jogger added some zippered pockets for wallets, keys, and cellphones, but the bottom storage is, unfortunately, all we get.
The canopy is made of UV 50 material that blocks out the sun very well. There’s a large peekaboo window at the top, giving you a good view into the inside of the stroller even when the canopy is down. This way, you can keep an eye on your child without having to expose them to the sun.
How Portable Is It?
The City Mini 2 comes with the one-hand quick fold mechanism, which allows you to fold it up in one swift move. It folds up nice and even leaves you with a padded strap to lift it by.
Remember, it only weighs 17.6 pounds, so carrying it around, whether it’s on public transit or through crowded streets, will not be too much of a hassle.
It’s also very car-friendly. It’s small enough to fit in the backseat or trunk when folded. This is great because you can leave it in the car when you don’t intend to wander too far.
Ideal Travel System
Perhaps the best reason to get the City Mini 2 is because you can turn it into a travel system. There’s no need to have a separate car seat and stroller on your Disneyland trip. With a Baby Jogger infant car seat, you can turn the City Mini 2 into a travel system. It’s a heck of a good deal considering how well the stroller handles the Disney World environment.
Who Is It For?
Out of the box, the City Mini 2 is suitable for kids between 1 and 54 months. For infants, it requires an infant seat, which is available. It’s also a great travel system because it’s lightweight and easy to convert.
A Unanimous Verdict
Whichever way you look at it, there are few better Disneyland strollers than the City Mini 2 from Baby Jogger. A sturdily built, lightweight, portable stroller with more than a few useful features to get you through the hassle of navigating Disney World.
The three-wheeler is able to handle tight twists and turns pretty well thanks to its size and weight. It meets Disney World regulations too as it is narrower than 31 inches wide. Best of all, it can function as either a stroller, a car seat, or a combination of both, since the City Mini 2 can be converted into a travel system with the right adapter.
Perhaps it isn’t the best stroller for Disneyland. What’s for certain is that you won’t find a better-suited stroller out there.
