    I have a sit and stand stroller that we plan to bring on our first Disney World trip, Im getting ready to measure the stroller. Do they measure the strollers when they are folded up or when they are opened?

    Hi Paulina! Thanks so much for dropping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited for you as you plan your first vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    I love how thorough you are being with your planning and you have clearly done your homework regarding strollers. As I'm sure you know, according to the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, "effective May 1, 2019, strollers that are greater than 31" (79 cm) in width and 52" (132 cm) in length will be prohibited. Stroller wagons will also be prohibited." The dimensions are primarily based on when the stroller is open and in-use, so have yours open when you measure it.

    If you need any other tips or information, the Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones guide is fabulous! One personal planning tip I will share is: when you are out and about, be sure you have a small blanket or towel with you. Use it to cover your stroller when you are inside an attraction. The warm Florida sun can make the stroller very hot on your little ones' skin. The towel or blanket will protect the stroller from the sun and will also be great in the evening or if nap time is needed.

    Seeing Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of a child is breathtaking! Enjoy every magical moment!
    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I wish you a wonderful vacation filled with magical memories and lots of pixie-dust!
