    I'm trying to figure out if we should take the jogging stroller or our umbrella stroller for our Disney vacation. Are there any restrictions on size of stroller that we might run into? Our daughter is 5 months old.

    Hi Nicole!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. As a mom of an infant and a preschooler myself, I am happy to answer your question today! I recently visited the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks with my youngest Mouseketeer and I think I can offer some invaluable personal tips for you. She was 5 months at the time of our visit.

    All strollers you bring to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks must be no larger than 36” x 52” inches (92 x 132 cm). The majority of jogging, full-size, and umbrella strollers on the market meet these requirements. You should have no problems visiting the parks with either of your strollers. However, I highly recommend carrying a full-size or jogging stroller if traveling with a 5 month old infant. My infant still naps throughout the day and having a stroller which easily reclines and she was comfortable in was indispensable for us! I also found it easy to keep her diapering and feeding essentials in the basket of my full-sized stroller. If you like to shop, strollers make a great place to keep souvenirs as well! Please keep in mind that you need to close your stroller on certain Walt Disney World Resort transportation options such as the parking lot trams, buses, and some boats. Some parents choose to carry lightweight or umbrella strollers because of this.

    Nicole, I hope I have done a good job answering your question! Please visit us again if you need any more help planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
