We've been nervous about taking our double Bob this trip but we found out they sell small locks to keep the tires from turning. It'd be a bit more awkward to try and steal a huge double stroller with no tired movement πŸ˜‚ although my husbands idea is to just remove the front tire and stick it in his backpack on rides πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Another great tip from Butter! - ShariRenee  6394.4 #15 12:31PM

We once had a stroller taken while at Disneyland. We went about our day and while waiting for the parade a family walked by with our stroller! Luckily I slipped my business card in the handle. When we approached the parents and told them they kindly explained they found it and didn't realize out belong to anyone. I told the CM about the card and the family promptly gave it back.Β  - fvbmermaid  229.6 #1552 3:08PM

That stinks! Anyone with expensive strollers needs to check out the Buggy gear stroller lock on Amazon. You can loop it through the back tires to lock them from rolling away with your stroller. It would be a little more awkward for them to steal without moving tires.

It's awful that you can't let your guard down even at Disneyland.  - sawman911  732.5 #247 8:05AM
A few years ago there were tons of stroller thefts.  They would wheel them right out of the parks and put them on Craigslist.  All my friends with kiddos in strollers bought a cheap one for the parks 😩 - DisneyPrincessT  93.0 #3594 9:01AM
Aww that is so sad. I'm sorry that happened. You know I never think that would happen because, well we all know how much it is for a trip and you have already spent that why in the world would you take someone else's thingsπŸ˜ͺ Glad you had a great time.  - mmddgp  712.3 #8 4:17PM

One of my recent memories was last Christmas. Santa was sitting there waiting for the children in line to sit on his lap and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. All of a sudden a person dressed all in black (looked like a Ninja outfit) jumped out of the bushes, grabbed Santa, threw him in a vehicle that looked like the trams that go from the parking structure and was overheard saying "You will make a great addition to my Disneyland collection at home." I'm surprised he was never caught because there were a lot of drones flying overhead filming the entire thing. I've never seen the video posted anywhere, even You Tube.  Santa hasn't been seen since there. - DLKenCA  2387.9 #54 4:01PM

My family loves this spot! One of my favorite memories here was Christmas Eve. We decorated cookies, saw Santa and just enjoyed the atmosphere. As some of you may know my hubby has PTSD and this is one of our "hiding" spots.  It a nice spot for him to get away from all the crowds. I welcome change to Disneyland but I am worried what taking away this area means to him and to other who use it for this same reason. - MrsGrumpy2002  205.9 #1852 1:11PM
Me too. Unique vintage area - suzieq65  69.6 #4035 1:33PM
We love this area all the time, but especially during Halloween Time. The pumpkin carvings, magic shows, casual character interactions and Conjure A Villain hold some of my favorite memories. I also adored that area when the Pocahontas show was there back in '96. Also, we always make sure to eat several times at the BTR BBQ. It's the only place all of us agree on.  - TiggersAndTinks  162.3 #2467 4:38PM
I was also wondering about the train.  I bet you they will create an "arch" bridge of some sort, so that you walk over the train tracks, preserving the DL railroad.  Similar to the walkway you see over the POTC queue. - Alicewhoareyou  2070.8 #69 10:16AM

MeridaFan When I was in hospital in March, they had a full restaurant with full menu. Yummy!
