As you begin to prepare for a trip to Disney, here are a few tips I’ve picked up on message boards and discussion forums:
1) Know if you’ll need a stroller. Disney involves lots of excitement, exhaustion and walking, and you’ll find children who at home can go forever without a stroller will suddenly need some assistance getting around. Plan to have a spot on a stroller for each child under 6, and a recline option if you’re traveling with children under 3.
2) Expect to see a lot of umbrella strollers. They’re the quickest to fold (a must when using the monorail and other public transportation), easiest to fly with (most have Travel Bag accessories), and generally lighter than traditional book-fold strollers.
3) Claim your stroller with color. As you go on rides and participate in activities, you’ll be leaving your strollers with all the other temporarily unused strollers. Make yours easy to identify by tying a bandana to the handle.
4) Consider a wheel lock. Leaving the stroller unattended can be a bit unsettling – especially if you’ve brought along a more expensive model. Though you won’t be allowed to chain the stroller to a post, you can put a lock on the wheels or elsewhere on the stroller. The wheel lock would prevent the wheels from moving, while a strategic lock somewhere on the stroller’s frame would prevent it from being folded (this strategy would result in the stroller being left in the parking lot).
5) Renting is always an option. Even the most well-planned trip has unexpected bumps! Though a bit pricy, Disney does offer stroller rentals. Doubles and singles may be rented each day for a flat fee.
