    Is there a place I can store a carseat in disney world if we take a cab?

    Hello Jenn! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am also considering the impact on taking taxis to various locations in lieu of Disney's Complimentary Resort Transportation. The problem remains: what to do with those bulky car seats?

    First, you should know that if you plan your trip in advance with taxi providers in the Orlando area, they can have a taxi pick you up that comes with car seats. However, the time that I tried this with Mears Transportation, the driver was unaware he was being sent to pick us up with this request and it took us about 10 minutes of shared effort to install the car seats. Possible? Yes!  Awkward? Very!

    Needless to say, this experience brought me to a new plan during our next visit: car seats and storage! That way, no matter what taxi they send, I will be prepared with car seats that I am familiar with. Once at a Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park, there are Locker Rentals available for storing said car seats.

    Theme Park lockers are available in 2 sizes:
    ~Small (11" x 9" x 16") for $8 per day with a $5 key deposit, and;
    ~Large (17.5" x 12" x 16") for $10 per day with a $5 key deposit.

    Also, there are single-use, coin-operated lockers located near the bus information booths at Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios which only accept quarters and you must pay for each use.  At the Epcot location, the single-use lockers are 23” x 16” x 29” and the cost is $1. At the Disney Hollywood Studios location, there are 2 single-use locker sizes: 12” x 24” x 28” for $1, and 4” x 5.5” x 6” for $.50.

    Be sure to measure your car seats to ensure they will fit the lockers.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
