    Is it easy to get an Uber with a car seat on property? I could bring my own car seat but where could it be stored if If it can not fit into a locker . my child is 2 so I need a full car seat not a booster (Renting a car is not an option) 😊

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Ashley! Thanks for sending another excellent question to planDisney. I'd be happy to discuss options for transporting your young Mouseketeer around the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    One of my favorite things about Walt Disney World is that we have always felt as welcome as can be when traveling with our little ones. Both of my children made their first trip to meet the main mouse himself before they could walk, and have enjoyed multiple visits as car seat-sized tikes ever since. My oldest has a special affinity for the Walt Disney World Transportation System, and getting where we're going is half the fun. Sometimes, like when heading home after a late meal at a Resort Hotel, it's necessary to make like Lightning McQueen and zoom back to our resort room as fast as possible. In this case, a ride share service like Uber or Lyft can be your new best friend. Because drivers in the Orlando area are accustomed to taking families to the area attractions, we have never had an issue promptly locating a vehicle with an age-appropriate car seat. We have used Uber with our kiddos in the past, and with this service, you'll want to request UberX Car Seat (also called Uber Family) to ensure the proper child restraint. 

    While locker rentals at the theme parks are great for storing things like bigger umbrellas and jackets for seasonal swings in the weather, the largest size lockers (Jumbo - available only at the Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT) are 17" x 22" x 26" and may not accommodate a non-booster car seat. Additionally, carrying a convertible car seat through security and a theme park entrance could be difficult. In the name of convenience, my recommendation would be to try a ride share service. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the company's current health and safety rules, as they may have changed since your last ride. 

    Ashley, I hope this helps as you prepare for your adventure with your family. Get ready to make some magical memories, and say hello to Mickey Mouse for me!

    See ya real soon,
    Betsy
