    We will be visiting Walt Disney World in November of 2016 and I am worried about using a stroller for my 2 year old and how it will slow us down during the trip. Do you have any tips or tricks to making our time there easier with a stroller in tow?

    Hello Mary!  I actually think using a stroller is very helpful at Walt Disney World.  I loved taking ours when my daughter was little.  It was so nice to be able to have a place to put all of our bags we like to take into the parks with us.  

    The first thing I suggest is putting something on your stroller to be able to easily recognize it in the vast sea of strollers at the stroller parking area.  Some people tie a ribbon or a bandanna on it.  My daughter loves the Mickey Mouse balloons you can buy at the parks so we always tied that to our handle somewhere so we could find it easily. 

    My other tip is for getting on the Disney buses with a stroller.  While you are waiting in line, make sure to take everything out of it - including your child.  You wont be able to have it open on the bus so it's just much quicker if you start gathering your stuff up as soon as you get in line.  Otherwise your are trying to board and dropping things and people behind you are getting huffy and it's just a mess - or that's just me!  

    One other thing I should mention is that if you park your stroller somewhere before you enter an attraction and it's not in the same spot when you exit - don't panic.  There are Cast Members that frequently move and straighten up the stroller parking to make room for others.  That's another great reason to put something on your stroller so it's easily recognizable.  

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
