    Do you know if we can use our child's umbrella stroller as carry-on luggage? Also, do I remember seeing strollers in some of the resorts and theme parks of WDW that we could buy? Thank-you for your time and help!!!

    Hi, Amy! Most airlines will have you gate check your stroller (and give little kids beverages without lids and straws. What gives?! I digress.)

    When you gate check your stroller, you bring your stroller right up to the gate where you board your airplane. The flight attendant will give you a tag to put on your stroller. You then wheel it down to the bottom of the ramp and leave it for the luggage dudes to stow below the plane. The luggage dudes at your destination airport will then get your stroller when you land and put it on the ramp for you to wheel away.

    A huge perk in bringing your own stroller is that strollers don't count against your luggage carry on limit. Another perk is having the stroller to wheel your kids around in the airport (and hold your coffee. For realz.)

    Many gift shops on Disney World property have strollers available to purchase. The price is far from competitive.
