    First time going to Disney World. i was wondering what size stroller would be fine to take with me? Also can i take me own pack and play with me to the hotel resort?

    Hi Amber!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! A stroller and a pack and play, I'm going to guess that you're traveling with a preschooler. My son just turned three, and in May I joined three mom-friends in taking our collective five toddlers for a best friends trip to Walt Disney World Resort. Oh Boy, have I learned a lot about traveling with a small child!

    Strollers are asked to be no bigger than 36" x 52", and neither traditional wagons nor those fancy wagon-stroller hybrids are permitted. Tips from pro experience: bring whichever stroller folds up the best as you will need to fold it to get on and off of Disney Buses, Boats and Parking Lot Trams.

    And yes, when staying at a Disney Resort Hotel you are more than welcome to bring your own portable crib. Don't forget the other comforts of home that your Mouseketeer needs for a perfect night of beauty sleep, like their favorite blanket or sound machine.

    Bonus tips: To lighten your load as you buy souvenirs, guests of Disney's Resort Hotels can send their non-food purchases back to their resort hotel for pick-up the next day. Baby Care Centers are a great place to change a diaper or take a break. And if your little is as picky an eater as mine, you'll be happy to know that Disney allows as many outside meals, snacks and beverages as you'll need to have a happy Disney Day.

    I hope this helped, Amber, and We'll See You Real Soon!
