    I am looking at take my kids to Disneyland for my birthday in May. A big family trip. I’m wondering if it is worth it to bring their little wagon or not? Trying to save some money and really don’t want to rent a stroller there.

    Hey there Jason!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited you and your family will be making the journey down to the Happiest Place on Earth to celebrate your birthday. It's definitely where I would want to spend my birthday if I could. When you travel with little ones in the theme parks, they may get more fatigued from the excitement, walking, and California heat than at home. When we travel with our son, a stroller is an absolute must for him to rest his feet or take a little nap while we walk around the parks. I did want to let you know that wagons are actually not permitted within the Disneyland Resort. You can find a list of what items are allowed in the parks online. Strollers and double strollers are allowed to be brought from home or you can rent a stroller on property when you arrive. I have even known some people to purchase an inexpensive stroller when they arrive in California and then donate it after their trip if you don't already have one. Many children who don't normally use a stroller at home tend to need one in the parks when they need a break. It may make your trip a little easier going to have a stroller as an option.

    Since you will be celebrating your big day, I did want to remind you to head to City Hall when you arrive in Disneyland Park for your complimentary Birthday button. Wear this button with pride during your vacation for some extra special birthday wishes from Cast Members and Characters.

    Until then, I hope you have some marvelous un-birthdays leading up to your spring trip. Have a Fantasmic day!
