    Disney for the first time with a kiddo. She’ll be 8 months. Looking for advice when it comes to bringing out stroller. How do we protect it from the rain? How do we make it recognizable from the sea of a thousand others? Any other stroller tips/tricks?

    Hi, there!

     I'm so happy to see you have a Walt Disney World Resort trip planned with your little one. Suzi, your heart will just melt when you see her grinning ear to ear as you ride "it's a small world" together.

     We always take our own stroller with us to the Walt Disney World Resort. I certainly do have a few stroller tips and tricks up my stroller-pushin' sleeve!

     To keep our stroller protected from rain, I cover it with a disposable plastic rain poncho. There are many stroller rain covers on the market you could purchase, but I prefer to just buy very inexpensive rain ponchos. When a shower has passed, I can throw it away rather than trying to dry and fold it. The ponchos are super lightweight, so I try to remember to pack a few in my backpack before leaving in the morning for a day in the theme park. 

     Finding your stroller among a sea of others is no easy feat! To make our stroller stand out in the crowd, I tie three ribbons around the handlebar. I've found really cute Mickey Mouse ribbon that is perfect for a stroller cruising through the Walt Disney World Resort! In addition to the ribbon, I attach a Disney luggage tag with our name and phone number listed. Keep in mind, Suzi, that you may not find your stroller in the exact place you parked it! Cast Members will shift strollers around designated stroller areas in an effort to maximize space. 

     One last thing we like to keep with our stroller is a hook for hanging bags. I think you'll find it comes in handy!
     Don't forget about Disney's convenient Baby Care Centers during your stay at Walt Disney World Resort. 

     Thanks for stopping by!
