"Disney and other theme parks must begin looking at how they secure and monitor areas where strollers are left unattended."
So what's the solution? Stroller lockers? Stroller security?
Maybe it's not the best idea to leave your wallet or car keys in the stroller.
Glad I'm only bringing an old stroller with us.
Ban kids, problem solved
If you're reading this Disney, I'm available for hire to solve all your problems.
Or to spend $1800 on a stroller. Nobody needs that.
I'm sorry but I would NOT bring a stroller with that insane value attached to it anywhere that I leave it behind
Glad they caught the person though
We need to create a boot for strollers .. Disney can rent them for $10 per day.
That was my first thought as well. Who in their right mind brings an $1800 stroller on vacation, and leaves all their valuables in it? That doesn't give any excuse whatsoever for the thief, but come on. Even if you feel you need the Cadillac, you don't leave it with the windows down and all your valuables sitting out on the seat. Disney has no responsibility to monitor stupid.
Crazy I know and we certainly could not afford that, but for those who can why not. The stupidity was leaving all the money etc. in it more than buying the stroller itself. Thankfully this is pretty rare.
I always worry about our stroller "taking off" on us. We never leave anything in the stroller, but we also make sure our name is clearly marked in permanent marker in many visible areas. We hope this deter a thief.
Sure leaving those valuables in the stroller was the biggest issue, but I still think purchasing an $1800 stroller is stupid too. I could afford it, but just because you can doesn't mean you should.
That said it doesn't excuse what this women did and I'm sorry this family had to go through that.
'Flew in from Miami to help' - just rent a car and drive home.
Who would bring such a stroller? I mean, I understand from going by the lots of parked strollers that yes, everyone has the same stroller. They all look alike.
They should have an MDE Stroller valet. You go to a designated area for stroller parking, give it to the CM, they give you a ticket (scannable to your MB/MDE). They place the sticker bar code on the stroller and park it. You have to prove via MB or stub that the stroller is yours upon pickup. They could also do this when you check-in at your resort. Some sort of barcode sticker on every stroller is probably the only way to do it. You would also have to scan the stroller when leaving the parks, ie to make sure it's yours. It'd be an extra PITA, but knowing you're leaving with your stroller is a good piece of mind.
Didn't have a wallet and presumably CCs.
Wonder what CMs thought with her leaving the park pushing a stroller and no kid in it?
There's enough people that use strollers down there as shopping carts and in-park luggage that they probably didn't think twice about it. No kid? Dad took the kid to the restroom for a diaper change or is already outside of the park headed back to the hotel. Pretty easy to make up a believable excuse for that.
She actually had her kid with her. Though that said, I'm sure a lot of parents run a stroller out to the car or something, so it wouldn't be that unusual.
I hear putting a dirty (or seemingly dirty) diaper on it does wonders, as well. I've actually heard tell of someone doing just that, with a melted chocolate bar.
Yeah, that's always the fun of getting a bus to the resort at park closing. There's always 1 or 2 strollers at the bus stop waiting to board where the kids are hung around dads neck or something and the stroller has all of the loot of the day in it. The hilarity ensues though when the bus driver tells them that they need to fold it up, and they don't have enough open arms....
