    Our child may or may not want to use a stroller. Would there a problem if we only used our stroller to carry our bags and personal items throughout the parks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Gabriel!

    Thank you for bringing us this great question! My family’s last visit to Walt Disney World Resort was our first without a stroller and the part I missed most was being able to use the stroller to push all of our stuff around, so I definitely understand where you are coming from! I often see many Guests with their child or children walking beside an empty stroller, so it is not an issue at all! Many children want to walk around for a while, then get tired legs and that stroller is a lifesaver! How many times have I told my husband that I wish I could sit in a stroller for a few minutes at the end of a long magical day! There are a few stroller rental options if you don’t plan on bringing your own, including renting one for the day from a Disney Theme Park or Disney Springs (to be used only in the Disney Theme Parks and/or Disney Springs) or by renting from a Disney Featured Provider (you have access to these 24 hours a day).  Whichever route you choose, I would suggest being mindful of valuables left unattended in the stroller as there are some areas where strollers cannot go (some Disney restaurants, certain Attractions, etc.). Walt Disney World Resort is a safe place, but unfortunately, theft can happen anywhere. To keep your belongings safe, there are lockers available to rent at each Disney Theme Park. If you plan on Park Hopping, you only have to pay once for the day and then you can use a locker at another Disney Theme Park by showing the Cast Member at the locker rental area your receipt.

    I hope this answers your question and that you have a most magical vacation! Come and visit us again soon,
