Disney Announced on Thursday that certain strollers and wagons are no longer allowed in the Disney theme parks.
You can read up on the full list of Disney World and Disneyland Rules here:
Starting on May 1st Strollers must be no larger than 31″ wide and 52″ long.
And as a reminder stroller wagons will no longer be permitted at Walt Disney World or Disneyland.
All of this we already knew. Instead of dwelling on what we can’t bring into the theme parks how about we look at some of the items we can bring in.
When my kids were younger we loved a simple umbrella stroller at the theme parks. It is lightweight, folds up quickly, and my little ones could get in and out with little to no assistance. I found this one on Amazon and it is a super cute Winnie the Pooh design. Did I mention it is very inexpensive?
If you need something a little bigger but still very maneuverable Kolcraft Cloud Plus Lightweight Stroller is another great option. It has lots of extras a normal umbrella stroller doesn’t have but still perfect for the parks. It comes in a variety of colors if you are not a fan of red and black.
If you have an infant who is not quite ready for a sit up on their own stroller, we had this Evenflo Vive Travel System. It was perfect to go from the car to the stroller and as your little one gets older they can transition to sitting up on their own in the stroller. We bought the extra bases for both cars.
If you have an infant and a toddler the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Ultra Tandem Stroller might be the way to go. It is only 49″ long so you are safe to bring it to the parks without having to worry.
There are several different brands and colors so just scroll to the bottom and double check the dimensions. Most of the ones I looked for all fell within the Disney Guidelines.
So this just leaves the side by side strollers. Most of the ones I looked at hovered right around 30″ to 32″ wide but many were way over. Be careful when buying one of these for the parks.
Baby Trend makes an Expedition Double Jogger Stroller which isn’t too bulky and I think would be great for the parks. There are other brands out there and I have seen some double strollers go all the way up to $699. Just do your homework. If you order almost everything off of Amazon like I do they are really good about listing out the sizes at the bottom.
Just remember the first number is length, then width, then height.
So as you can see and just from doing a little research this morning there are a ton of stroller options out there. We always had strollers we used for travel and then the nice ones we had for around the house.
No matter how you do it just make sure to leave those wagons at home and double check the size of your stroller before you bring it to the parks. I hope this helps on your next trip to Disney World or Disneyland.
