You may notice that I have left off one of the most recent trends in travel gadgetry, the selfie stick. I am personally anti-selfie stick, and the next time you head to Disney only to be repeatedly bumped into by dozens of travelers caught up in narcissistic oblivion you'll understand too. Just say no to this new trend, instead ask a friendly cast member to take a picture of you and your family, they will be more than happy to do so.

would the traveldot work to track other things? I'm planning for a December trip, our first with our new baby. I think I've decided to bring our nice stroller because it would be better for in-park naps and carrying baby's supplies. But I am a bit paranoid about theft. I thought an inexpensive tracking device might be the solution for when we have to leave it... But they aren't all that inexpensive! Thoughts??

It could work in theory Kelsey, but I'm not quite sure how you could secure the traveldot so that it wouldn't be easily removed or fall out from the stroller. That being said - I highly recommend bringing your own stroller with you to the Parks. My kids were so much more comfortable having a "their" place traveling with them. There may be other travel tracking tags that will work better for you.

LOL to weigh my luggage I just heft it onto the people scale at home.

But I surely could use one of those phone charger things.

Kelsey, they make stroller locks similar to the things you use to lock a bike up. It works great at Disney. There's some on Amazon
