Let's see your stroller decorations!!!

From time to time I see strollers all decked out at Disney. We are going for the mnsshp and I am looking for ideas.

When I rented Disney strollers in the past for my DN I brought a small Canadian flag and tied that to the handle. It made it so much easier to find our stroller in stroller parking - especially at Playhouse Disney. Check out the strollers here!



We're going back this August with my 2yo daughter and will be bring a similar stroller marker this time.

That photo is ridiculous, thanks for posting. After seeing that, I'm definitely going to have to trick out our stroller to save the inevitable headache of trying to pick ours out in a sea of hundreds. I've got a pretty conpicious blue UK golf towel I was thinking of hanging from the handle, so maybe that's a start.

Yes, I'd highly recommend it especially knowing that it is often necessary for CM to reorganize strollers for maximum capacity so your stroller may not be in exactly the same place when you go back to get it. It will be in the same area (as long as it was parked in actual 'stroller parking' area) but could be moved around.

PS - I snapped that pic of the strollers almost 7 years ago never realizing the number of times I'd use it. It's one of my fave Disney trip pics ever!

Bring glow sticks to attach to the stroller at night! It's a big help trying to find it in the "sea of strollers." Especially at darker places in the park.

This is a great idea! Time for a trip back to the Dollar Tree.

I bought a really bright purple gift bow at Dollar Tree for our stoller. Hope it stands out enough.

We went to WM a few days ago and picked up super bright, obnoxiously pink fabric from the remnants bin. We'll just do a bow or tie it around one of the handles. I already have glow sticks from our last trip that we'll use for the stroller...and the girls

Target, Walmart and Michaels all have glow stuff for $1 or less. At Target, they are in the Dollar Spot, and at WM they are with the Halloween stuff. Michaels had theirs outside.

I read on this board that someone used battery powered Christmas lights for their stroller handles. We have never had any major problems spotting our stroller, but glowing handles would make life easier, and fun!

Only a good idea if there are no U of L fans around. Or you may never find your stroller.

We bought a small string of christmas lights for our stroller for at night. THey either were on all the time or did this blink option so finding the stroller was super easy. We also had a sign made up by my sister for finding the stroller was easy during the day.
