5 Tips to Prevent Stroller Theft at Walt Disney World
No one wants to think it might happen, but with all of the nice strollers zooming around Walt Disney World you want to make sure your stroller won’t be taken! Here are some of our tips on how to hopefully prevent it!
- Create a “Stroller Tag” with your family name on it. Laminate it and then attach to your stroller using heavy duty zip ties. Another option is to create a decal that will iron on to your stroller somehow. No one wants to push around a stroller with another family’s name on it!
- Buy a stroller lock. There are a few different stroller locks you can purchase like the Baby Lock n’ Go Retractable Stroller Lock or the BuggyGuard Retractable Stroller Lock. You won’t be able to lock it to a stationary object in the Disney Parks, but you can tie your wheels together!
- Don’t leave bags of merchandise on your strollers! Some people may think that piling the stroller with bags will prevent someone from taking them, but it can be the opposite! Don’t leave anything valuable or eye catching on your stroller.
- Decorate your stroller! We mentioned about making sure there is a stroller tag with your family name, but decorate your stroller even more! Add balloons and really wrap the string around the handle. I’ve even seen people put rope lights around the wheels! Talk about unique! Check out our post on how to decorate your stroller to stand out!
- The strangest thing I have heard to deter stroller thieves is to pour a soda into a diaper, put it into a grocery bag and hang it from your stroller handle so it resembles…well, you know!
If you have rented a stroller from Disney World and find that it has been taken, head to where you rented the stroller to report it. They have a limited number of replacement strollers available. If your non-Disney stroller has been taken, you can still try reporting it to Lost and Found in the Disney Parks. It may have been that the stroller wasn’t taken, but a Cast Member moved it around.
