Can someone put me in touch with Fairy Godmother? I need a little “sala-gadoola mechicka–boola.”
Having spent a lot of time at the Disneyland Resort as a single parent, she and I need to consult on the rental strollers.
With a wave of her magic wand, here are 3 things every Disneyland rental stroller would have.
All Disneyland Resort rental strollers currently have one seat.
For one stroller you’ll pay you’ll pay $15/day*. For two, you’ll pay $25/day*.
(*as of 1/31/16)
The problem with one seat is I have two little butts that need a seat, and only two hands. As a single parent, I can only push one stroller. I need two seats. This is why the double-seated stroller is a thing.
As parents, we love and need the ability to restrain a pair of small, energetic bodies — especially with over 100 acres to experience at the Disneyland Resort!
The double-seated rental stroller is already a thing at two other well-known California theme parks. Third-party companies are offering double-seated stroller rentals to Disneyland Resort guests. It’s a rare breed of Disney parents who are brave enough to bring their own double stroller from home. The Disneyland Resort clearly allows double-seated strollers inside the parks – as long as they don’t exceed the 36″ W x 52″ H stroller size restriction.
Dear Disneyland Resort, please rent me an approved double-seated stroller. I will happily pay the same $25/day fee I’d currently pay for two strollers. Every time.
A Pair of Cup Holders
Disneyland Resort rental strollers don’t currently have a cup holder. Why isn’t this a thing?! And if you’re going to add one, can you add two? A pair of cup holders would mean my littles could sip a Frozen Lemonade while I nursed a Starbucks frappuccino, all while happily pushing my rental stroller.
Give me a pair of cup holders and I will fill them both, all day long. It’s not so tough to be a bug in A Bug’s Land with a frozen lemon-lime margarita from Rita’s Baja Blenders in your cup holder.
A Waterproof Canopy Flap
Even the Happiest Place on Earth experiences inclement weather. Instead of asking us to drape our rental stroller Mad Max style with plastic ponchos and Disney Store bags, a waterproof flap would prevent rain from seeping right through the existing mesh-like canopy of our Disneyland Resort rental stroller.
On a hot and sunny California day, parents could flip the waterproof canopy flap back to reveal a breathable mesh underlayer.
