    After much thought, we've decided to bring our BOB stroller for our 6 mo old since we're traveling in FL before WDW. Can you tell me about stroller etiquette in the parks? and how safe it is to leave our stuff in the stroller? First time with a stroller...

    Plenty of guests bring their own stroller to the parks. A six month old baby will probably be happier and more comfortable in his or her own. We have both rented and used our own strollers with no problems. A few tips to help you navigate the parks with a stroller:

    - Mark your stroller clearly with your name. Rental strollers all have a small sign for families to write their last name on but you can brand yours however you choose.
    - Tie a balloon on the handle so you can quickly and easily pick your baby's carriage out of a sea of strollers.
    - Stroller parking is in specifically marked areas by attractions. Cast Members tend to shuffle them around so be prepared for your stroller to perhaps not be in the same place you left it. We have exited many a ride to be confounded about where our stroller was. This is when you will be glad you purchased a giant Mickey balloon to identify yours. A Cast Member can help point you in the right direction.
    - Leave drinks, diapers, bottles, suntan lotion and hats on your carriage with no worries. Take cameras, phones, and wallets with you on the attractions. I have never experienced or heard of items being snatched from a stroller but why risk a loss?
    - Be prepared to fold up your stroller when you board a bus.

    Please contact me if you have additional questions. Enjoy your magical vacation with your sweet baby!
