    Can you tell me where I would typically leave baby stroller and rolling cooler /personal items (I have a cooler that fits the size limit) when we board each ride? Do they let you store it at each boarding platform?

    Hello Stephanie! Thanks so much for your question. Where you will park your stroller and other items depends on the attraction. It is typically outside of the entrance and queue. It is usually obvious where you will park it, as there will either be a sign pointing you in the right direction, or a Cast Member. If you have trouble finding the stroller area for a particular attraction, you can always walk up to  the entrance and ask The Cast Member where you can leave it. The general area where everyone parks their stroller is safe, and in most cases, guarded by a Cast Member. I've never had any stolen items, or mishaps within the stroller area. 

    The queue areas before you board an attraction are pretty small and wind around several times, so lugging your stroller and personal items into the queue is prohibited. Can you imagine if everyone brought their strollers through the queue? It would take forever for everyone to account for their belongings and would take away from the overall experience of the ride. You can, however, bring small purses and backpacks through the queue and onto the attractions. Some attractions have a storage area in front or underneath your feet. I will warn you that some of the storage areas are not very big. I took my relatively large backpack on Space Mountain last December and had an interesting time trying to shove it down by my feet.

    I hope this helps, and if you need anything else, please stop in. 

    Have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
