    Am I allowed to bring my car seat inside my double stroller for my newborn as long as I don’t take it out? I have the baby trend... and what about the initial entrance? Can he be seated inside or does it have to be folded?

    Hey Courtney! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Like sweet Winnie the Pooh says, "Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in your heart." I wish to add, they also lead to the most things you need to carry around! Having a stroller while in the Parks was a welcome relief for my tired little ones' feet but it also served as the command center for all beverages, ponchos, discarded sweatshirts, and baby wipes. I am soon approaching the year when I won't be needing it but boy did I love my stroller. 

    Some things to know about strollers:
    • Strollers cannot be bigger than 31" (79 cm) wide and 52" (132 cm) in length. Most Baby Trend strollers I have seen do fit this but make sure you double-check. Also, don't bring a stroller wagon as they are banned.
    • A beautiful baby in an infant car seat is definitely allowed. Just be mindful that when taking a ride on the complimentary Resort Bus Transportation or Water Transportation strollers must be folded and removed from the aisles. You will have to remove the infant car seat and hold it during this ride. When taking a ride on the Disney Skyliner or Resort Monorail you can keep your child in their car seat and stroll right on! Just be mindful that if it gets crowded a Cast Member could ask you to fold it up to allow more passengers on.
    • Many rides and attraction queues do not allow strollers on them and they will have to be parked in a designated "Stroller Parking" area. Quick Tip: Make sure to make your stroller easily found with ribbons, a balloon, lights (great at night), or a sign. It can be confusing hunting for a stroller in a sea of them. Cast Members have the right to organize the areas so your stroller could be moved around.
    • When you enter the Parks and approach security you will see a special area where you can bring your strollers to be examined. Your child can stay in the stroller or the infant car seat. My tip is to have all bags and under-basket items removed and have another adult take them through the separate quick pass-through security area. Make sure to read up on the Park Rules so you don't bring a banned item.  The more bags and crannies security have to look through the longer it all can take. 
    The best advice I can give you is to babywear your child during certain points. Moving through a queue, getting on a bus, and entering a ride vehicle are just much more convenient when babywearing. Then, when you are back to normal travel through the Parks or if dining in a restaurant you can keep your child in their infant car seat.

    Make sure to check out the Baby Care Centers located in all four Parks. They are one of my favorite places and are perfect for a quiet feeding area or diaper change. The whole family can join you in most of the areas and if you forgot a diaper this is where to find one!

    I hope this helps and that you have a magical time with your precious little one! Let me know if you have any more questions and from one mom to another- savor every moment and memory!
