Vote of the week: Do you bring a stroller, or rent one?
Written by Robert Niles
One of the greatest days any parent can experience is that day, which usually passes unnoticed, when your child no longer wants be schlepped around in a stroller.Tweet
C'mon parents: You know the drill. Park the car, run around and open the trunk. Unload and unfold the stroller, locking every joint into place. Get the kid out of the car seat and into the stroller. And when you're finally ready to head home, do everything again in reverse.
At a theme park, it's even worse. You have to find a place to store your stroller at every attraction, and it takes up space in the trunk with all the other junk you collect at the park. (And if you're flying to the park, that's one more piece of luggage to gate-check.)
That's why many families choose to rent a stroller at the park, instead. More space in the car. No hassle getting through the front gate. No worries about loss or damage.
But, ow, the price!
So, parents, what is your strategy?
Tell us how you deal with strollers in the park, and which parks are most "stroller"-friendly, in the comments.
