A Walt Disney World Stroller will Save your Sanity
When I began writing this post about keeping your sanity with a Walt Disney World stroller, I struggled to narrow down the reasons. It boggles my mind how so many parents of children under age 8 (Yes 8!) could argue against a Walt Disney World stroller. When spending hundreds to thousands of dollars on a family vacation, why wouldn’t vacationers want the best tools for a happy, stress-free trip?
Answer a question with Several Questions
Answer a question with several questions is usually a precursor to making a good point, so here it goes.
- Does carrying a 3-year-old shouting: “my feet hurt” for long distances in 80 to 90-degree weather appeal to you?
- How about attempting to coddle a screaming 9-month-old strapped to your chest with nowhere to settle them down?
- What about explaining to a starving 6-year-old that they have to run while they eat a Mickey pretzel because you are late for your FP+ ride?
Do I have your attention? Good, because I’ve seen it all. Keep reading.
Security and Sanity for the Whole Family
There is one good reason why our children bond with blankets, pacifiers, lovies, and other objects, security. Without the sense of safety, children can lose their minds.
A Walt Disney World stroller can magically keep your sweetie feeling secure while keeping you sane. If your child feels they have a safe place to retreat they will be less cranky; hence, have a better time. (and so will you!) Trust me I speak from experience. The right stroller will secure your holiday happiness and your investment!
Strollers are a convenient way to shelter your child
When it comes to the hot Florida sun, rain showers, large crowds, and loud sounds, a good stroller can be a convenient way to shelter your child from the external chaos.
Overstimulation is impossible to avoid at Walt Disney World, but it’s not impossible to diminish. A good stroller is a great way for a child to retreat into their safe zone. An area that is cozy, shaded, and hopefully stockpiled with their favorite snacks and water in addition to recognizable toys. (or favorite gaming device for those over age 6, if that’s what your child is into).
Shade and Rain
Without a good hood for shade, adequate rain cover for the kids to stay dry, or a place to store water bottles, snacks, umbrellas, and ponchos you could be miserable.
If you do not want to be inconvenienced by your stroller, know that stroller parking is plentiful. Just park the stroller in a centralized area within the land you are visiting and walk to each ride. For example, we have parked the stroller at the Seven Dwarf Mine Train while riding the Mad Tea Party, Winnie the Pooh, Seven Dwarf Mine Train and Prince Charmings Regal Carousel.
In conclusion, when the children are content, parents are happy. Don’t make your vacation to Walt Disney World a testing ground for your child’s threshold. Get your family a good quality stroller and you are sure to have a much better time.
