    Re: WARNING --- 2007, SPRING, No outside food, strollers or WATER brought into the pa

    i really hope they don't stop all food coming into the resort

    having diabetes, it'll be very difficult for me to come to the park without being able to bring my juice boxes/sugar tablets/granola bars

    There is a waterpark in my town that has pulled this one as long as I can remember. Their rules are that you can not bring food into the park. It also included all drinks and water until they recieved enough complaints as to where they now all you to bring in their sponsor's water if it is sealed.

    They don't apply this rule to children.

    It doesn't fly well at a waterpark. (They try to pull a 'sanitation' card) It will never fly at Disneyland.

    Last week I saw a single mom (at least shee was very much alone at the time) with triplets in a triple stroller. Tell her she can't bring her "asault vehicle" and she will be spending her money elsewhere. Oh, and she was at Ariel's grotto spending money for all four of them to dine with the princesses, so she was definately spending more than the ticket price.

    Curious, what was this policy then and now?

An umbrella-style stroller is quite inexpensive, and most of the people using that type seem to find it suitable.

    I've even seen double-wide strollers in the umbrella-style, and the people pushing them seem so much more calm and serene. So, if a single parent has more than two stroller-aged children, then he or she should probably be visiting Disneyland with another adult.
    This is your *opinion*. I recently took a double jogging stroller (I am assuming this is what you are reffering to as a "behemoth") I tested multiple double strollers(With the children inside) prior to purchasing this one just for the trip. The umbrella strollers you are reffering to are the hardest to push and manuver than any that I tested. The one I have is easily manuverable with one hand, turns and stops on a dime ect. ect. The umbrella needs it's own parking garage to turn around in.

    I tried to remain unbiased on all the stroller debates prior to going to the park. I took into consideration all the stroller ankle casualties and was very aware not to come close to anyone. However, I can attest to everyone that steps in front of you, cuts you off, and stops suddenly in the middle of the road that I had to quickly dodge. Thankfully I had my double jogging stroller that manuvers on a dime.

    [quote=nursemelis374]
    I just spoke with my co-worker who is also a nurse, has a diabetic daughter and is a Certified Diabetic Educator and she and I were wondering why diabetics and/or hypoglycemics need to be able to bring in water? We understand about them having maybe 1 or 2 small snacks for the rare emergency situation, but that would be something very small and simple and you really do not need water. Also, wouldn't you get out of line to get something to eat if you were doing that bad? Losing your spot in line would be worth it if you were slipping into a hypoglycemic state.

    Diabetics have a high water demand and can easily get their electrolytes out of balance if they do not drink enough. As for the "wouldn't they get out of line if they were that bad" Heat and walking all day can easily depleat a diabetic/hypoglycemic very quickly, well before they realize it. I am a nurse also, and I can't tell you how many nearly pass out right in front of me, when two seconds before they were not symptomatic. And what if they needed to eat/drink right at peak lunch/dinner hours?

    Wow! I applaud you. I have never heard anyone make a comment like this. And I totally agree. Yes, even before I had children.

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!! It is so good to have a nurse here who can back up, with better medical facts than I presented, the points I was trying to make a few pages back.

    Re: WARNING --- 2007, SPRING, No outside food, strollers or WATER brought into the park!

    I really wish they would enforce the 'no outside meals in the park'. I mean that's what the picnic area is for, right? It really bums me out when I see people with tupperware and Pepsi cans sitting on a bench in Fantasyland. It doesn't seem too much for Disney to require them to eat it outside the park. Since I've had my AP I haven't had the need to bring a meal in. Sometimes I bring a zone bar or some trail mix, but that's it as far as food goes. When I bring water I always bring Dasani. It just seems wrong to bring anything else in.

    As far as strollers go, in general they don't bother me too much. But I do think there are too many older kids in them. At WDW this was much more prevalent.

    My one soapbox issue is Gameboys in Disneyland. It's ridiculous! There's no reason that a child that needs that much stimulation inside Disneyland! My goodness, if you are not entertained enough by Disneyland you have a problem! And I don't care about the lines. That's what talking to your family is for and listening to your Dad (or mom) tell stupid jokes. That is why you are spending $$$ to spend time together as a family, not stare at a screen. Ok, I'll leave my soapbox now.

    THANK YOU! It makes me nuts when I see kids sitting there outside -pick-an-attraction- manically and obsessively staring at a little screen utterly oblivious. I have actually seen parents nudge thier kids to get them to go on a ride!

    I love games, but I do believe Gameboys are really helping to increase the amount of ADD & ADHD in our kids.

    Feh!

    Re: WARNING --- 2007, SPRING, No outside food, strollers or WATER brought into the pa

    I've brought a gameboy to Disneyland. This is because I'm evil.

    Kidding. I brought it because I always bring something to do while waiting for shows and fireworks. The last time I played it was when I was playing Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories. My sister brings hers on occassion, though lately she's been bringing Alice in Wonderland (the book). My brother also brings his sometimes, and once I linked up with him to play Legend of the Four Swords while in a crazy long line for small world. We stuff them away while on rides, but while in line or waiting for stuff it can be a lot of fun. Most of the time I bring a book or my pocket pc though. (pocket pc is for working on writing not for games.) Oh, and we're all in our twenties.

    As for the rest of this topic, they won't stop allowing water. It's water and it doesn't matter what brand it is, people need to stay hydrated in this crazy hot weather. I think snacks should also be okay, especially for those who need it for medical reasons. Most of the time I'll get hungry and try to find a place to eat. Problem is everyone else got hungry too and got in line before me. If I have a snack I can eat it and not be cranky while in line.

    Regarding strollers, once again if they aren't impractically ginormous then there's no reason to stop allowing them. People won't know the policy, will lug them all the way there and then get angry. Disneyland doesn't want angry people. They would rather have happy people who will buy their kids a billion little toys than angry people who will get annoyed, yell about the rental fees, then not buy anything. Besides, have you seen that stroller rental line? It's craaaazay!

    I can't believe this thread is still going - Micechatters really know how to beat a topic to death.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Re: WARNING --- 2007, SPRING, No outside food, strollers or WATER brought into the park!

    The only food/drink we usually bring is in our morning Starbucks. But we still end up getting Disney coffee too.

    When our kids were younger and of stroller age we would bring in goldfish or something for snacks and of course juices. But other than that we don't do it. If we want outside food, we just leave the park and get it.

    As for the huge double-wide strollers ... I agree ... they are just too big. Our kids are 18 months apart so we needed a double stroller. We got the double long one (but not TOO big). It was a god-send. Once our daughter was too big for it we got a single one for our son.
