    Carissa from OH Asked

    We want to bring our Jeep jogging stroller because our daughter naps much better in it than in the umbrella stroller but the Jeep Stroller is so expensive and we are afraid it could be stolen. Are there an precautions we could take to avoid theft?

    There certainly are, Carissa; I learned them the hard way!  Funny story: years ago, my husband and I had the same fears you do and so we purchased a bike lock and literally chained our stroller to random trees or posts within the parks.  All was fine until Disney security approached my husband at Hollywood Studios and informed him that what we were doing was most definitely not allowed.  My husband, of course, apologized and pleaded ignorance (which was true, in this case) and they sent him on his merry way.  But not before giving us a tip: for those concerned about stroller theft, they advised to thread the bike chain through the wheels of the stroller and lock it that way, so that a would-be thief won't get very far with your stroller.  The good news?  The technique works!  Even better news?  We won't be getting scolded by Disney security for that mistake again.

    One word of caution: I would avoid leaving valuables in the stroller while you're enjoying attractions.  Be sure to carry those in a backpack.  I hope our lesson-learned-the-hard-way helps you to avoid trouble!
