    Have a 5 year old and was planning on bringing a stroller. Is it a pain to park your stroller at ride entrance and retrieve after the ride?

    Hi Shelley!

    I think a stroller is a great idea.  The parks at Walt Disney World are huge, especially Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom.  The only problem with a stroller is it can be hard to navigate, especially if the parks are super crowded when you visit.

    Parking a stroller at an attraction usually is not a problem.  Just look for the stroller parking area nearby; most attractions have one.  Retrieving your stroller after you get out, however, can sometimes be.  Usually the problem that occurs after leaving an attraction is you can't find your stroller; it's not where you left it.  In almost all cases, what has happened is a Disney Cast Member has moved your stroller slightly to make room for more strollers or has moved it to the designated stroller parking area.  Needless to say, however, that can make your job of finding your stroller difficult, especially if the parks are packed and there are a lot of strollers around!  My suggestion is to tie something to your stroller that makes it easy to spot; my favorite thing to use is a balloon and there are plenty of balloons for sale in all of the parks except for Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
