Customize and print your own stroller license tags from @WDWPrepSchool

Customize and print your own stroller license tags from @WDWPrepSchoolWhen renting strollers at Disney World, you will need to put a stroller sign in the pouch on the back to identify it as yours.

You can use the one given to you at the stroller rental counter or…you can make your own.

It’s just 1 more way to get creative on your trip and make your stroller stand out in the sea of sameness.

I’ve designed some templates that can be edited in Gimp or personalized in Word.

Gimp is like Photoshop but free and can be downloaded at http://www.gimp.org/downloads/.

To personalize in Word, follow these steps.

  1. Click on the PNG version of the template you like below
  2. Right-click the image and copy it
  3. Open Word, create a new document and set the orientation to Landscape
  4. Paste the image into your blank document
  5. With the image selected, increase the width to 8 inches
  6. Put your cursor to the right of the image and hit enter
  7. Insert a text box and type the words you want to appear on the stroller tag
  8. Set the fill to “no fill” and the outline to “no outline”
  9. Move the text box on top of the stroller sign image where you want your text to appear
  10. Change the text font style and size to what you want it to be (you can manually type a font size if you need something bigger than what’s shown on the font size list)
  11. Save and print!

I also made a video to show you how it works.

Some ideas for personalization:

  • I’ve used several different fonts to match the the images on the signs. Download and install the font to make your sign look even more custom.
  • I’ve used our family’s last name on all of the examples below but you may want to use your child’s first name, use the name of the trip (“Jones Family Vacation”) or something else instead.
  • If you want to show your trip dates on the sign, you could put the month in the upper left and the year in the upper right.

Two tips if you do make your own stroller sign:

  • Laminating the sign will help it last longer.
  • Make sure you take your sign with you every time you return your stroller so you’ll have it for the next day.

Now for the stroller signs…

Love these! Thanks for sharing. I am trying to customize
the Toy Story alien tag in Word. I downloaded the Agent Red font,
but am having trouble adjusting the coloring on it. I can change
the color of the shadowing, but the inside of the letters is
totally transparent. Any ideas on how to adjust the color?
Thanks!

Hi, Courtney -
I used Gimp to fill in the letters. You could use Paint to type your letters and fill them in with a color, save the image and then insert into the Word document. It’ll be surrounded by a white block (the background won’t be transparent). You can use these instructions to make the background transparent. I have Microsoft Word 2003 and my directions were slightly different – I found the “make transparent” option under the Picture Format menu > Adjust section > Recolor dropdown > Set Transparent Color.

To arrange the text block, right-click it, choose Format Picture, go to the Layout tab and pick “In front of text” as your option. This will allow you to move images around as needed.

Hope that helps!

Love this! We are going in September for the first time with my twin toddlers. Would love to have an image of Sebastian on one of these! Gotta play up our last name as much as I can :)

Hi Shannon! Thanks so much for sharing this. I was wondering if there was a way to make the Walt Disney World words in black so that they would stand out better when printed? I like the Mickey and Minnie Christmas template but I notice that you can hardly see the World Disney World words when printed out. Otherwise these templates are just awesome!

Could you do a silhouette one of Mary Poppins? Love these and the Mousekeeping envelopes!

I love this. I have printed one for each day. We are using the Halloween scene for the MNSSHP. I didn’t laminate but printed on card stock.

They looked great but did not fit the smaller sleeves on the Magic Stroller rental. I folded them in half and used them anyway because they were so cute!

What a great idea! Thanks so much for making it so easy. I am making one for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party! Love it!

Is there some where I can buy the pouch? We are not renting a stroller but would love to still have one on our own.

Thanks!

I used the stroller template on my trip in December. I was fortunate to take my grandchildren and I must say that I am grateful for these adorable signs! I personalized and printed one, put it into a plastic sleeve to protect it from the elements and used zip ties to attach to the stroller. I have to say it was so nice to be able to quickly identify our stroller from the many others lined up – especially when they are moved to a new location! Even several cast members mentioned how “smart” an idea it was because of how our stroller stood out. Thanks Shannon for making me “smart”!!

I just did this. I love it. I was on easy earlier and was about to purchase luggage tags and all of the printables that you offer for free. You are sooooo kind. And soooo soooo helpful. I will have a double stroller from kingdomstrollers. Will this work?

DO you have luggage tags?

Would you recommend adding any other information such as phone numbers or would that be unnecessary?
