Both the front and back car on the trams allow for strollers that don't need to be folded. We prefer to walk most of the time though, especially when the kids are sleeping in the stroller. I would bring your own stroller, just so you can More...
Just make sure to have a backpack for your valuables. I'm sure you wouldn't dream of leaving yours in the stroller while in the park, but it is amazing how many people do! Grab your backpack and take with you in the rides. Don't leave it in the stroller. Have fun! - MeridaFan 3550.6 #36 11-11-14 7:32PMLike(2)Reply
I don't have children but I routinely see strollers in tram rows other than the front so you should be fine if you want to bring your own stroller. I hope someone with a baby can help you more. - missmimi90 1988.1 #70 11-11-14 5:27PMLikeReply
Thanks guys! And the baby care center is practically our second home in the park! - ericaG 5.4 #16212 11-11-14 7:22PMLikeReply
I usually walk from Mickey and Friends. It's just easier than dealing with getting the baby in and out of the stroller and in and out of the tram. Sometimes it's quicker, too! I take a baby carrier (an ergo) so I can baby wear and it's something to different from the stroller. The strollers the company rents don't recline, so that might encourage you to bring your own. Hope that helps! - IDVandalSkipperCM 2358.8 #53 11-11-14 8:38PMLikeReply

I took my kids when they were four weeks and six weeks. They've been Disney fans ever since :). I think it kept them calmer when I carried them in baby carriers, like a Bjorn or Ergo carrier, and it was easier to go on rides together.&nbs More...
Personally, I would want my child to have more immunity than a one month old would have before bringing her into big crowds of people. But then, I was always paranoid about things like that. Talk to her/his pediatrician and see what they have to say. Oh, and to answer your other question, both my girls were about a year and a half old for their first visits. Your baby tucked safely in a stroller or attached in a front carrier with her head covered is actually probably safer than the toddler wandering around touching everything! 😂 - MeridaFan 3550.6 #36 11-17-13 10:29AMLike(3)Reply
My son was turning two when I first took him. I would have taken him when he was 1 but didn't have the money. I would never take a child younger than 3 months. Nothing at Disney is that important. - Lelundrial 569.4 #335 11-17-13 12:18PMLike(1)Reply

Play area at Goofy's House in Toon Town!!!! Best place to let the littles run around. It's mostly fenced in so they can't escape and there are benches for the grown ups.

It's difficult to really see all of of the parade from Plaza Inn because of the hedges surrounding the seating area. The Carnation Cafe outdoor patio is a great place to sit and see the parade while eating
I think the best place to see the parade while eating is definitely Coke Corner. We've sat there quite a few times with a perfect view! - SPandEvLover 3685.0 #35 5-19-13 10:05AMLike(2)Reply

I recently explained the storyline behind Splash Mountain to a coworker. She's only a few years younger but never knew the story or that it was from Songs of the South
I don't think Brer Bear was ever politically incorrect. Now, if Uncle Remus were walking around as a face character, maybe that would be an issue. - JustCantWait 1140.4 #142 2-17-13 4:19PMLike(3)Reply

I beg to differ. It reflects what was thought to be the mindset of that era. Which yes, is bad. What offended me was his little Velvet Suit with short pants. And that his hair was so shiny. Yeah I'm a knucklehead. - Butterlina 1537.4 #99 2-19-13 9:16AMLikeReply
If only there was an area to allow for trades for FP! I foresee this happening in the Lounge a lot!
Yeah, it won't start being enforced until the 18th or 19th. CMs are just trying to get the word out that you'll need to start paying attention to the return times. - IDVandalSkipperCM 2358.8 #53 2-9-13 9:02AMLike(6)Reply
This is actually a GOOD THING! By enforcing the FastPass time frame to work as it was designed, this will actually make the FastPass a true shortcut, rather than people using their FastPass at any time... filling up the queue. - IMissDisney 1205.7 #130 2-9-13 10:41AMLike(1)Reply

I could be wrong, but doesn't this seem like something that would cost the parks a TON! Not just in the initial set up cost, but also in replacing the lost/broken and more likely, stolen bands.

We use a double stroller, but it is not a side by side, so it is just as easy to maneuver as a single stroller. For me , banana strollers are good for short trips, but not too comfortable for a full day at DL! Hope this helps! - 7mouskedoodles 361.0 #593 12-30-12 10:17PMLikeReply
