Yep, get a cheap one to take or rent one. We had our cheapo $15 umbrella stroller stolen at AK when we were there in March. Glad it was our last full park day, and DS was five years old. He just walked the rest of the day. DH spent the rest of the day checking all the stroller parking areas for it when we would move from ride to ride, but we never did find it. The kicker? It had our bright yellow ME tags with our last name attached to it.

I don't even have a stroller, but I'm going to be paranoid now!id definitely rent one vs bringing the Bugaboo. That's a pricey stroller and if I was a then, which I'm not, that's what I'd go for! Scary to think they'd even take your $15 umbrella stroller!

I've seen stroller locks like the Buggyguard...has anyone use one of those before?

We have a buggy guard, it's cute, but i doubt any safer then a basic bike lock

I'm also not bringing our good stroller -- it's only worth about $500, but I know I would constantly be stressed about it getting stolen (however unlikely it is) so its just not worth it to me. We bought a used one specifically for the trip, and while I really like it, I won't be devestated if it goes missing

I'll change that. Four years ago, I parked our stroller at the bottom of the steps leading to my in-laws room at Port Orleans French Quarter (under the steps, not right in front of them). Came back 10 minutes later and it was gone. Ran up and down the property looking for it, to no avail. Spoke to front desk, security and housekeeping, to no avail. All they could say was strollers get stolen all the time, if it turned up, they'd call me.

We were getting on the ME to the airport in about 20 minutes, my daughters shoes and pajamas were in there. Had to buy a pair of Mickey Crocs in the gift shop, which have since been passed down from kid to kid.

Ever since, we rent strollers and take out the $5 insurance. I guess it was all part of the authentic French Quarter experience.

I purchased a Maclaren Techno off craigslist just for our Disney trips. It fully reclines and has a large hood. I would have rented but wanted something for the airport as well.

They would get a FL AP, go often, and make a business of it. Wo on Craigslist would know that you didn't buy that stroller you are selling? Same thing in Anaheim.

I'm an honest person, but when I see those strollers, as well as the items people leave on them (if I could have afforded a Petunia Picklebottom diaper bag I would never have let it out of my sight, but people just hang them off the backs of strollers and leave them for hours!), I start thinking about a change in morals...

Wow, was it really necessary to take a shot at the French Quarter to tell your story? That was pretty offensive for no reason. Crime happens everywhere.

Seriously? You need to relax. I'm from New Orleans, born and raised. Every time I tell anyone that story here, that is usually the response I get, and we all laugh about it.

OP, you said you were in Florida already so I assume you are driving. If not, the downside to renting is navigating the airport without a stroller. Carrying carry-ons, a diaper bag and a 1yr old through security and the gate can be stressful.

I've visited twice and tout it was funny. I make similar comments about NOS at Disneyland, remembering well what the real French Quarter smelled like early in the morning as I walked to get my beignets before heading to the airport. . I adore NO, but there are some unpleasant realities of the place.

we have a lock and have used it at the zoo. We were planning to use it at disneyworld, but it was to much of a pain in the neck. Several rides the CM 'valet' your stroller (Great Movie Ride/ Safari etc.). We also saw how much they were moving the strollers around and felt badly to lock the wheels together.

We used a Stroller lock (the buggy guard) on our city mini. We only locked the back wheels. It was a huge pain and a CM broke it on our 3rd day. It was in Epcot at night and I guess when they were moving them around they didn't see the lock. It was so twisted and messed up we gave up using it. The rest of the trip was much easier without it!

How do you know it didn't do it's job? It could be that someone tried to take your stroller, but decided it was too much of a hassle.
