There’s a double-edge sword effect when it comes to purchasing souvenirs at Disneyland: Buy it early and you have to carry it all day — buy it later and risk the item selling out. Perhaps you’ll want to leave it on your stroller at its designated parking spot outside an attraction — unfortunately even the happiest place on earth isn’t protected from thievery. And how many arguments have tainted friendships from having to send one person all the way back to the car to store items? I still haven’t spoken to my mother. (Kidding)
Anyway! Here’s the tip: the Stroller Shop holds Disneyland Resort packages for as long as you need (until closing) and for free! It’s conveniently located at the Esplanade by the exit gates of Disneyland.
Of course there’s limitations:
items must be from purchased from Disneyland, California Adventure and/or World of Disney or other Disney-owned stores from Downtown Disney
no personal items
no food, perishables
