No strollers in Fantasy Faire

For all of you talking about which strollers are best-
I saw this this morning and thought of you.

I certainly wouldn't want to be a CM trying to deal with this:

"The exception will be: if the child is asleep in the stroller when the guests enter the Faire, they will be allowed to proceed."

I understand what they're trying to do but making exceptions, for whatever reason, can get tricky.

When we visited the park a few years ago strollers weren't allowed in the line for the Princess thing then either, there was a great big parking area right outside and a CM told everyone entering to go park their strollers in it.

As a person with small kids it would be better if it was an all out ban on strollers. If it is a small walking area it will make sense to have everyone be free of strollers.

Exactly. This isn't new at all. And completely makes sense.

What doesn't make sense is the author calling it a "land". How is it a land? It's a theater area.

I like the no stroller rule

As Mom to 4 kids who still use a stroller I am so happy there will be a no stroller rule!! They are bulky and just get in the way, I think though the rule should be no stroller's....no exceptions. Its just like any other ride or show, can't have a stroller while waiting in line.

We too use a stroller when at Disneyland because of our small kids, but this doesn't bother me at all. Strollers aren't allowed in line at Pixie Hollow and people seem to do just fine. I don't see how this is any different.

I think you are thinking of the old one.....the new Fantasy Faire has not opened yet and is an entire themed area. I would not say it's a "land" but it's much bigger and more themed than the old theater where it was once located. I think it opens this weekend.

It actually opens March 12

Thanks for the post, Lana, it'll be interesting to see how this rule pans out!

Hmm, I can see some kids suddenly falling asleep. Seems like you just need to say NO strollers through this area.
Sad we will miss the new area by a week
And also missing princess sophia in CA.

I'm thinking of the area where they are putting it. It's not land-sized.


So I just read an article with pictures on D23, and while it is more than I expected, could they be copying the expanded parts of WDW Fantasyland any more? Augh, Disney is killing me right now. We don't need to copy everything. From the shock as I entered the new DCA for the first time and found myself transported to a CA version of Universal Florida's Islands of Adventure's Port of Entry, to this copy of WDW, I'm getting more and more annoyed with them.

If they are going to do no strollers, they have to make it even across the board. Having exceptions is going to cause more problems than not. As a mom to (almost) 4, we use strollers, but I'm fine leaving them behind if needed.
