Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland have released new rules and regulations for their respective resorts, primarily focused on policies related to stroller wagons and other wagon-style vehicles.
Stroller Wagons No Longer Permitted at Shanghai Disneyland
Effective today, June 30, 2023, the following carriers and vehicles are no longer permitted at Shanghai Disney Resort:
- Strollers with length exceeding 110 centimeters (about 43 inches) and width exceeding 80 centimeters (about 31 inches), both including any accessories or extension attachments fully deployed
- Wagons, stroller wagons
- Children’s tricycles
- Wheeled carriers
- Stroller suitcases
- Any trailer-like object that is pushed, pulled or towed by an electric conveyance vehicle, wheelchair, stroller or person
In addition, guests are no longer allowed to pull any of the still permitted carriers or vehicles behind themselves, nor are they allowed to use any permitted carriers to exclusively transport personal belongings, merchandise, or other physical items.

Stroller Wagons No Longer Permitted At Hong Kong Disneyland
Starting July 31, 2023, Hong Kong Disneyland will no longer permit stroller wagons and wagons, regardless of size, inside the park. However, manual wheelchairs, electrically powered mobility devices with at least three wheels which operate at a walking pace, and strollers with dimensions that do not exceed 92 centimeters (about 36 inches) by 132 centimeters (about 52 inches) will still be permitted.
In the rules update, guests are also reminded of the other items that are not permitted in the park, which include:
- Carts or other wheeled carriers (with the exception of those permitted)
- Flags, banners or signs of any size
- Wheeled luggage of any size
- The use of handheld camera or cell phone extension poles (such as selfie sticks)
- Playing with kites, drones or remote-controlled flying devices
- The sale or exchange of goods or services, or the display of goods or services for sale or exchange, or solicitation for sale or exchange of goods or services, where goods include but not limited to Disney-branded merchandise, and services include but not limited to tour services or photography services of any kind, without our authorization.
Guests visiting Hong Kong Disneyland will still be allowed to bring their own strollers for any accompanying children, but those strollers will have to comply with the new standards outlined in the updated rules and regulations. In addition, stroller rentals are also available at the park from Fire Department, next to City Hall. Hong Kong Disneyland further goes on to say that they reserve the right to deny admission or require a guest that has already been admitted to leave the park, without refund or compensation, for not following the park rules.
Stroller Wagon Bans at Disney Parks
The ban on stroller wagons and other wagon-style carriers has already been in effect at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort since 2019. These types of strollers are also not allowed at Tokyo Disney Resort. The same rule being put into place at Hong Kong Disneyland is also the rule for stroller wagons at Disneyland Paris.
What do you think of the stroller wagon rules at the Disney Parks? Do you find it’s easier to use than a regular stroller, or do they inhibit your guest experience when visiting the parks? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
