    why aren't wagons permitted in the park?

    Hi Anne,

    Walt Disney World does not allow wagons in the Theme Parks for a number of reasons, but I think one of the main reasons is that a stroller can be folded down so you can fit it into the different modes of transportation offered to you by Disney World (such as buses, monorails, boats, etc..) and a wagon cannot be folded down in size.Another reason is that a wagon would pose a safety concern for other guests who are navigating through the Parks and a stroller is much easier to navigate with (especially since it is in front of you and you are pushing it versus pulling a large object behind you that guests could trip over or walk into).The same goes for coolers with wheels that a guest would pull which would also not be allowed.For all items which are not allowed to be brought into the Theme Parks please see the following which comes directly from the WDW Website:

    Items that you may not bring into the theme parks include but are not limited to:

    • Items with wheels, such as:
      • Wagons
      • Skateboards
      • Scooters
      • Inline skates
      • Shoes with built-in wheels
      • Strollers larger than 36" x 52" (92 x 132 cm)
      • Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24" (61 cm) long x 15" (38 cm) wide x 18" (46 cm) high. (Coolers required for medication may be stored in a locker or at Guest Relations.)
      • Any trailer-like object that is pushed or towed by an ECV wheelchair or stroller
    • Alcoholic beverages
    • Weapons of any kind
    • Folding chairs
    • Glass containers (excluding baby food jars and perfume bottles)
    • Pets (unless they are service animals)

    In Disney's Animal Kingdom theme Park (for the safety of the wildlife), balloons, straws and drink lids are not permitted.

    Best wishes,
