    We will be visiting WDW next week with our 1 year old daughter. Should we be worried about leaving our stroller when we go on the rides? Do you suggest using a lock to ensure that someone doesn't "accidentally" take the wrong stroller?

    Hi, Stacy!  I've taken all three of my girls when they were stroller age, and I've never felt uncomfortable leaving my stroller to go on any of the attractions.  I have never felt the need for a lock, and I've never experienced anyone accidentally taking a stroller - whether I've used my own or rented one at the park.

    Some things I have done to help more with me identifying the correct stroller is to tie a brightly colored scarf or ribbon on the handle of the stroller.  If you are renting a stroller, it can be easy to accidentally walk away with the wrong one, especially if you don't have any personal items in the stroller.  Having something that personalizes it to you can be very helpful.

    I wouldn't leave any valuables in the stroller, just for your own peace of mind.  Throw everything important into a backpack or diaper bag and take it with you. 

    Have a wonderful vacation!
