    Hi! I am coming to the parks and have a graco element lx stroller and was wondering if it would be ok for the park. Thank you!


    I was just looking up the model of stroller you mention, the Modes Element LX Travel System from Graco on their website, and it certainly should be fine for use in the parks. The real problem is when people start to bring in wagons, which typically can run afoul of the park rules. The fact that it includes a shade for your child is a big plus. Those afternoons in the Orlando sun can really take it out of a kid!

    Despite what you may think, your stroller is not unique. There will be others just like yours and finding yours in the corral of strollers after riding an attraction can be like a game of Where's Waldo. Bring a nice bundle of colorful ribbons to tie to the handle, or some other icon that helps you find yours quickly. We made a laminated sign (so that it could survive an afternoon rain shower), with our name on it.

    When you get back to your room in the evening, store your stroller on the porch of your room, so it does not get underfoot. But make sure you didn't leave any snacks in the pockets that might attract unwanted critters.

    On some transportation options, like the monorail, you can keep your child in the stroller, which is great. But on bus rides you may have to get them into seats and collapse the stroller so that there is room for other passengers. Be ready for that when you are heading home late at night.

    A lot of parents don't know about the availability of the Baby Care Centers in each of the theme parks. These complimentary venues have changing tables, rooms for nursing, and a lounge area with couches and a TV tuned to Disney Junior. It can be the best place for a toddler to reset for the day.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
