It’s Spring which means you’re probably planning your Spring break and Summer vacation and if you’re heading to Disney World with your little one’s, you’ll want to know, lugging around the kids will be a bit more tricky.
Disney World announced that as of May 1, they are banning all oversized strollers.
Yes, that means if you have twins or triplets, you might want to try growing an extra arm or two.
According to the Disney Blog, they are updating their stroller policy as follows:
“Beginning May 1, we are adjusting our guidelines on stroller sizes, which will require them to be no larger than 31″ (79cm) wide and 52″ (132cm) long. The good news – many strollers on the market, including many double jogging strollers, fit within these size guidelines.”(Source)
In addition to oversized strollers being banned, they are wanting to remind you that stroller wagons are not permitted.
“Also, just a reminder that wagons are not permitted in our parks. Beginning May 1, stroller wagons will also no longer be permitted. These updates are designed to help guest flow and ease congestion, making the parks more enjoyable for everyone.”(Source)
While this may be upsetting to some parents that have larger strollers, imagine how much better this will make your Disney experience.
In fact, Disney World’s communication manager Lisa Mendillo said that the new rules are meant to “to help guest flow and ease congestion”.
And we can be on board with that.
I remember when we visited a few years ago, it was so tough trying to navigate a large stroller and kids around Disneyland.
So, what can you do to ensure you aren’t turned away at the gate?
Simply measure the width of your stroller. As long as it’s 31″ (79cm) wide and 52″ (132cm) long or less, you’re good to roll – literally.
And remember, if that doesn’t work, you can always rent a stroller from the Disney Parks. Sure, it’s not ideal to spend the money but it’s better than nothing.
So, what do you think? Is this a good change?
