Don't rent one from Disney as the price is very expensive for a double.  You can check out these two companies.  They will both deliver the stroller to your hotel and pick it up at the end of the trip.  They both use the Baby Jogger double city mini which I own and home and love!  On our last trip in Sept we rented from http://www.magicstrollers.com/.  They were better in price for us plus if you put in the comments you'd like the parent cup holder and rain cover they will include that!  They were great!  They sent us a text message to tell us the stroller was dropped off and picked up.  They deliver it to you in a storage bag and they make sure it has been fully cleaned before they give it too you. 

The other company a lot of people use is http://www.orlandostroller.com/.  I never used them.  I compared their prices to Magic Strollers and Magic was cheaper for us. 

The great thing about renting from one of these companies is you have the stroller for the whole vacation.  With renting from Disney you have to give it back before you leave the park.   The other option is to bring your own stroller if possible.

We found it was cheaper to buy one ($70 for a sit and stand from Amazon.com)  and take it with us.   We didn't have to pay to check it at the air port and  it came in hand to use it at the airport.
