We've had strollers taken before. It's not fun. At the time, you could get strollers from the Starcade (if they had them, by the way, they don't always) and from a store in Frontierland. If you're all the way down at Splash Mountain/Pooh with a six year old, a toddler and a baby and your strollers get stolen, it ain't no picnic getting a new one. They even took out our name tags and tossed them. We had our $2.79 Dasani water bottles in one stroller and a bag with some new pins in another. Oops.
It's happened more than once. It's not a matter of strollers getting moved by CM's (the times we've rented strollers, we park in stroller parking ONLY), it's other parents taking them.
I won't even address Wesley's comments about how old a child should be to go to Disneyland. That's a whole 'nother can'o'worms.
Also....I'm offended that it's moms who are getting the bad rap here. I saw FAR MORE dads pushing strollers than moms the six days we were there. And I witnessed a pair of dads purposely ramming people after the fireworks one night. Over and over again. I didn't say anything, until as fate would have it, I ended up in FRONT of them and one of them rammed my ten year old. These guys were my age (a little older probably), good looking, with cute wives, they were showing off, being cool...and they hit my ten year old pretty hard. I'd been behind them earlier and overheard their conversations for a while...so I said, "I know you're the only two people here feeling crowded, but I'd appreciate it if you'd stop ramming every single person in your path, Jesus." My ten year old's jaw dropped and the dad who hit her apologized. Felt good.
My husband pushed our stroller the entire time we were there and I saw him hit people more than once....but I also saw those people cut him off and step OVER the stroller. If you think you're the only person being inconvenienced by a stroller, think AGAIN. You think the stroller pushers are having a fun time in the crowds?? I can tell you from the sweat on my husband's brow in those after-fireworks crowds, that he was not having the time of his life.
Strollers aren't going away, nor are young children in the parks, so we all have to be a bit patient with one another.
I think the new strollers look SO much more comfortable and the extra storage looks great, too. The old strollers were really hard to maneuver. Like no other stroller I've ever had the displeasure to push....they were awful!
