Smile Stroller Swaps! Find Them Here!

PLEASE DO NOT POST A NEW THREAD
IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO JOIN A SWAP!

Check the lists of available swaps in posts #2 & #3. Contact the Swap Leaders via PM or eMail to join.

Swap Leaders: Please do not bump your threads repeatedly or start new threads to advertise openings in your swap. You may put a link to your swap thread in your signature as a way to let DISers on other DIS Forums know about your swap but please do not start threads on other DIS Forums to advertise openings. Your cooperation is appreciated.


After some discussion, it was decided that DISsers will be permitted to post threads on the Budget Board in regards to Stroller Swaps. BUT, everyone involved must be aware that the DIS, or any person involved with the DIS, shall NOT be liable for ANY problem(s) that may arise from these swaps.

Please consider this before starting a Stroller Swap:

No money may be collected to start or continue a swap.
Swapped strollers must be available for free to all participants or the swap will not be permitted on the DIS.

We suggest that the “organizer” of the Swap set up rules pertaining to that particular swap and see that everyone involved be informed of the rules and agree to them before participating in the Swap.
We suggest that these matters be addressed in a Stroller Swap Agreement:
  • What will happen if the stroller is lost, stolen, damaged, etc? Who will be responsible? And what does that resposibility mean?
  • How will an “absence” (someone not showing up to do the Swap) be handled?
  • What will be the “disposal” of the stroller at the end of the Swap.
  • And, any other matter that may arise with a Stroller Swap.

Again, the DIS will NOT be held liable for any problems pertaining to a Stroller Swap and can NOT be called in the case of ANY disputes regarding a Stroller Swap. It is up to the Swap Organizer to see that everyone involved in the Swap be aware of this fact and agree to it.

What is a stroller swap?
A stroller swap is a group of DISers who will be needing a stroller during their WDW vacation and would like to have one without paying Disney's high rental fee for a WDW stroller. A stroller is donated and passed from one vacationing DISer to the next on the list.

Each swap is organized differently, so it's important to get all the details from the individual swap organizer to familiarize yourself with the rules. Information on how to pick up your stroller and how to pass it to the next DISer should be provided by the swap leader.

There cannot be a cost involved with swap participation. This would be against DISboard rules. The donation of the stroller and any cleaning & maintenance supplies is the responsibility of the participants.

Do not start a new thread to ask if your dates are available without checking for available dates in the current swaps first. If your dates are not available, feel free to start a new swap and PM me with a link to your thread.

Keep in mind that someone has to step up to the plate and be the organizer for a swap or it just isn't going to happen. If you're hesitant to be the organizer, PM one of the current organizers to get advise from them on how to run one. It might not be as complicated as you think!

With luck, everyone looking for a stroller swap will be able to get into one.

!!! PLEASE READ!!! Important News Regarding Swaps & Shares!!!

It has always been a rule on the DIS that anything involving money changing hands between members was not permitted on the boards. With that in mind, a decision has been made to end all swaps and shares that include money passing between DISers.

What does this mean?
  • Beginning 4/21/2009, all Photopass shares requiring a payment are over on the DIS. No new paid Photopass shares can be started.
  • Threads for existing Photopass shares will be locked on Friday of this week. Any new threads will be deleted beginning today unless they are offering the Photopass Share at no charge to participants.
  • Fridge and stroller swaps that are free can continue. However, if a refrigerator/stroller is lost or damaged, the swap leader cannot collect money from members to replace the lost/damaged item. Swaps may continue if an item is donated for the use of subsequent share members.
  • No new fridge or stroller swaps will be permitted to start unless the fridge/stroller is a donated item and the swap is free to all participants.
  • Any fridge or stroller swap that is not free to new members will be closed on Friday of this week. This will allow those leaders of swaps that are currently collecting money to decide whether they are willing/able to offer their swap for free. On Friday, any swap threads that are not free will be locked and their links will be removed from the sticky threads.

If there are questions or concerns, please send me a PM.
