I once read somewhere on this forum that a guest once hung a "poopy diaper" in a clear bag and hung it from the bar of the stroller handles to deter any would-be theives.

Oh, I'm going for the skull-and-crossbones. Much more my style.

I would LOVE to see a picture of your stroller.

Thankfully, no. We've never had anything stolen from our stroller before. Well, unless you count the bird who took some soft pretzel we foolishly left on the tray!

We've never had anything taken from our stroller. We never leave anything of importance in it either (diaper bag, cooler, extra change of clothes ect). If we buy anything we have it sent back to the hotel or have them hold onto it and we pick it up at the end of the day (we've never had any problems with these either).

Just the stroller and it was a cheap, beat up umbrella stroller. Came out of Living Seas to find only one stroller (the brand new one). Followed up, but never saw it again.

No, but we don't leave anything of value in it either. We did witness a couple of thieves going through several strollers when we left the Nemo show in AK early. They were small and gray with long furry tails. My son much preferred watching them pilfer snacks from the trays than watching the show inside!

Last week our Umbrella stroller was taken my mistake twice... The first time was in AK, we came out and our stroller was missing and one that looked just like ours was there (only older). We got it back at the end of the day when it was turned in... We wrote our name on it after that and then three days later it was taken at HS and the Cast Members that assisted us, got a new stroller from the front of the park AND also walked around while we went to Disney Jr. and actually found the stroller! They traded it with the people for the one they actually left behind. It was a cheap one for like 15 dollars, so of course EVERYONE had the same EXACT one! Next time I will use a black sharpie before going and draw all over it...

If you're serious,then you're taking a real chance. I had a friend have her entire stroller stolen. The CM's told her there had been a rash of stroller thefts that night in the MK.

Never leave anything you can't live without.

We've never had anything taken but only leave things like snack, extra diapers, etc. We have left jackets in a stroller basket without problem. This next trip I will have a bag I'll leave with the stroller with snacks, water, diapers, wipes, ponchos, and a smaller bag to take on rides that'll keep my money, camera, phone, etc.

This is one reason I'll be using my DD's special needs stroller with a pass as she needs it when she goes for long walks as she has Muscular dystrophy though she can walk and run just can't keep up with the other kids( always last even in the pool!),tires and even at soon to be 6 will fall asleep when overly active. I would hate to lose her adaptive stroller as they aren't cheap! Nope, it's staying with us as she's way too big for a normal one..

Thankfully not. I don't know if I'd never paid attention to him or what, but until last summer I never realized that my DH always put his wallet and keys in the basket under the stroller whenever he left it in stroller parking. I don't think I would've ever known except my mom took our daughter and the stroller to a different area, and I happened to ask DH for his Disney Visa Rewards card to pay for a purchase, but all he had was the little cash he keeps in his pockets.

Half of the time we're rushing around to get things done last minute or we realize we're running behind so we need to catch up

We have never had anything taken from our stroller at the parks. The only thing we leave behind are baby blankets and maybe a jacket or two. Everything else is with us 24/7

i remember reading on here that someone takes a diaper,a little bit of coke thrown in to soak it and ties it on the handlebar of the stoller to make it look like a blowout diaper!! I thought that was clever, gross BUT very clever.
