    Are there restrictions to what type of stroller I am allowed to bring? I have a 4 month old and don’t have a traditional car seat/stroller

    Royal greetings, Queen Audrie!

    I'm absolutely delighted that you've come to planDisney to get some help with your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place On Earth! As a mom who regularly navigates the parks with a stroller myself, I totally get how important it is to make sure your little prince or princess is comfortable throughout your visit. But fear not, because just like Cinderella's Fairy Godmother, I'm here to assist you in every way possible!

    Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! Audrie, I'm here to remind you that when it comes to strollers, there are  specific size restrictions in place to ensure the safety and comfort of all guests. Strollers larger than 31 inches in width and 52 inches in length, as well as wagons, are not permitted in the park. However, as long as your baby’s carriage meets these guidelines, you are free to bring whichever stroller you prefer for your little prince or princess. 

    Bonus tip: Right before you enter any security checkpoint, you'll see the stroller dimensions outlined on the ground. This means you can quickly check if your stroller is within the resort's size limits before even getting into the security line!

    Now Audrie, if you're still worried about bringing your stroller, don't stress! Lots of people rent single or double strollers from Stroller Rental for the day. Honestly, when my little guy was 4 months old, he wouldn't have been happy in a forward-facing stroller, but that's just my experience - you might find it works perfectly for your little one!

    Here’s some more mom-to-mom advice, Audrie. I want to share another tip with you that will make your trip to the parks even more magical. Each park has complimentary Baby Care Centers, which provide a peaceful and refreshing haven for parents and their little ones. These centers offer comfortable nursing chairs, cozy changing tables, and air conditioning to keep you and your baby comfortable. But what makes them truly special is the way they make you feel like Cinderella transformed into a queen.

    As someone who experienced the hustle and bustle of the parks regularly, I know the importance of having a moment of peace and tranquility amidst all the excitement. So, I highly recommend that you take advantage of these wonderful centers and give yourself a chance to relax and recharge before heading back out into the fun. If you're curious about what the Baby Care Centers look like, you can check out planDisney's Instagram reel to catch a glimpse of the royal treatment that awaits you and your little one.

    Well, Audrie, with these tips in mind, you'll be ready to have a magical time at the Happiest Place On Earth! I hope your carriage fits perfectly and doesn't turn into a pumpkin at midnight before your visit tomorrow. If you have any other questions, feel free to follow up. I know you'll have an enchanting visit with your little Mouseketeer.

    "Have a good time, dance, be gay!
    Now off you go, you're on your way!"
