    How do I take my baby's umbrella stroller on the flight down to Disney so that I have access to it since our other luggage will be picked up by the Magical Express?

    Some parents prefer to keep their young children in their strollers right up until boarding time.  A stroller provides a familiar place for children to rest before the flight, especially during long flight delays.

    Check your airline's policies regarding strollers.

    You'll be required to fold up your stroller at security and place it with your other carry-on items to go through the x-ray machine.

    Once you arrive your departure gate, speak to an attendant about gate checking your stroller. You will likely be given a tag to place on your stroller. Keep the claim ticket with you.  You will then keep your stroller until just before stepping on the plane. Don't worry, flights to Orlando have many families doing just the same thing!

    Upon arrival in Orlando, your stroller will either be waiting just off the airplane in the same location as wheelchairs or it will be sent to Baggage Claim. Inquire about your airline's procedure before boarding.
