If your kids are obsessed with the idea of spending a day at Walt Disney World and having the ultimate princess experience, you're in luck. The most magical place on earth now offers adorable princess carriage strollers for rent, complete with an elegant red carpet ceremony when your stroller is presented. For most little kids, it sounds like a dream come true. But some parents are freaking out because these fairy-tale strollers come with a not-so-dreamy price tag.

The strollers are rented out by a third-party Florida seller called Princess Carriage Rentals. They're crafted from silver metal with blue tufted seats and look exactly like the carriage out of the movie Cinderella. They also feature hooks for hanging purses or diaper bags and built-in cupholders.

Most importantly, each stroller comes with a "regal ceremony" in which the stroller is presented outside your hotel with a red carpet and a soundtrack of fairy-tale music.

The price tag for all of this glitz and glamour? Oh, just a cool $299.

Can you picture it? Rolling through Disney in an adult-sized carriage with your finest Little Mermaid fanny pack and an ice cold rosé in a cup with mouse ears. If these things were big enough for adults, the hefty price tag might actually seem worth it.

After all, a trip to Disney World is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many families. You might as well bibbidi-bobbidi-boo your way through the park in style.
