how safe is your stuff in the parks?

my daughter is determined to bring a dressed build a bear with her in the parks. obviously some of the time it would not be able to go on the rides and have to wait in her wheelchair. Or on a lounger at discovery cove. How likely is it that someone would take it if we left it unattended?

Most people are honest but with the amount of people that visit chances are some aren't. I have forgotton my camera attached to the stroller and thankfully it was still there when we returned but personally I would not leave anything I wasnt willing to part with.
I would think the bear could go on all the rides though, maybe in a bag?

The bear can go on ALL the rides, my son took an elmo with him everywhere. We have left a hat on his stroller and a blanket in the basket and we've never had a problem. I don't know about discovery cove, but i think a bear would be fine, the only one who would steal it would be a child and hopefully a parent would be there to tell them not too. You could put him in a locker at discovery cove so he wouldn't get wet.

I wouldn't trust leaving it out in the open. Find some way to hide it or carry it with you.

I'd hide it. We had our camcorder stolen off our stroller while on a ride a few years back. Last year my DD left her Jessie doll in the stroller, when we were walking back we saw a little girl grab it and by the time get mom noticed, she didn't know where she grabbed it from, and just tossed it onto a wall. So, either way, I would put it out of sight.

It's just as safe as in any other public place, which is not very. Never leave anything valuable unattended. Have her leave this in your hotel room or take it with you on rides.

We had a Duffy bear with us that went on all the rides in Epcot. It's no problem to take the bear on rides. I wouldn't leave anything unattended.

I think if you cover it with a blanket or tuck away it should be fine....We've never had any problems.

Awww, sorry about your camcorder. And as for the doll, i wonder why the mom didn't turn the doll into Lost and Found.

We have fortunately never had any things stolen out of our stollers. But I would definitely stuff the toy into a backpack and out of sight....

I think it's easy to think "It's Disney, nothing bad will happen" .... but people are people and do and will steal. I'd either put it under and cover it or leave it in the room.

We have never had a bad experience with forgetting valuables ie cameras, blankets, bags. I like to think at Disney you are ok, but won't put it past anyone to grab and go. We take care of our stuff, so we leave nothing to "chance."

Assuming the bear is the size of a small backpack, you can probably take it on every ride. No need to hide it, just keep it with you at all times.

DD has taken a stuffed animal on rides without issue. I've left things in her stroller before as well as her diaper bag and *knock on wood* nothing has ever been stolen. I wouldn't leave anything valuable, whether that be monetary or sentimental, unattended though - it may be WDW but some people will make off with whatever is "free" for the taking.

We've never had anything stolen. But here is a little way to hide the stuffed animal. After having our stroller soaked by a mid-afternoon storm and carrying DS the rest of the day we learned to put a poncho over the stoller while on a ride. This hid everything in the stroller. Condiser doing this for your wheelchair. I doube anyone will take the time to remove the poncho to see what is in the chair.

Unless someone takes the poncho for themselves.

Never leave anything out and unattended that you wouldn't miss if went missing. If your child will be unconsolable if the bear was gone, leave it at the resort.

Not everyone who shows up at the parks is totally honest.
