    Obviously I'm not talking about the big rides cuz the kiddos don't Go, an adult stays with them then switch, but on the others ?? Like it's a small world, Dumbo, Safari...

    Is there a lot of stollen strollers at the world? I'm only bringing my TOys R us umbrella strollers that costs 10$ but still... :rotfl:

    Thanks :beach:

    You have to park them in a designated stroller parking area. We call them stroller farms since there are so many all lined up. CMs will move them to fill in space so don't be alarmed when you come out and its in a different location.

    Park your stroller in stroller parking while you ride. Consider putting a luggage tag on it or something to identify that it is your stroller (like a bright ribbon or some sort of "customization". This will also help you find it in the sea if strollers.
    Also, don't leave any valuables in the stroller.

    Yes, you can bring your bags on rides. The only exception in WDW is The Sum of All Thrills in Epcot. For that ride, they have lockers available to store your stuff. Some rides there are small pockets in front of the seats for items. If your bag is too big, just put it at your feet. If you are on a thrill ride (RnRC, TOT, etc), put one leg through the strap on your bag to hold it in place.

    I carry a regular sized backpack and it's never been a problem to bring it on rides with us.

    We didn't have anything stolen but had quite the time with things falling out of the stroller. We are of the opinion that we'd rather take our regular non-cheapie stroller then deal with problems caused by the cheapie. that said, our big stroller cause DH tons of issues this trip (he wasn't used to dealing with it yet since its relatively new... and he had an especially short fuse the entire vacation). I made stroller tags but forgot to attach them before we left.

    I ordered a BuggyGuard stroller lock from amazon for $20. We're taking our inexpensive Graco stroller to WDW in January, but don't want anyone "accidentally" walking off with it or having a CM move it too far from where we park it. The lock is very easy to use and allows you to lock all the wheels together.

    You park them, take your valuables out, and go ride. I ended up using a small backpack as a diaper bag so it would be easy to grab and go. I would also keep my rain guard/cover or a poncho handy and if there is even one cloud in the sky, then cover the stroller before you leave it. Cant tell you how many times we have came outside after a ride/show/meal over the last 10 years to a sudden downpour.

    Also, are you sure about taking your cheapy strollers? My daughter never uses a stroller at home, so I wanted to make sure she was comfy since she would be in one a lot over the week we were there. Plus I needed more storage space and a MUCH better sunshade than her Maclaren Quest provided. I took it with us plus rented a City Mini Elite. Best decision i ever made. We used the 'big' stroller on commando park hopping days, and used the Mac in the airport and for shorter, night time park touring.

    We put a tag on it that has our name and address & phone number on it to be easy to identify. Plus we tie a ribbon on it too.

    We usually buy the brightly colored packing tape or duct tape and wrap it on multiple points on our cheapie strollers..
