As the mom of an 11-month old, I’m always excited to try out new travel systems. You realize very early on what both your child and your needs are when purchasing a car seat and stroller, and this system offers a lot of bang for the buck.
The Disney Adorra Travel System is a limited edition line for Maxi-Cosi featuring “The Incredibles 2” design, which looks sleek and cool, is gender neutral and understatedly celebratory of Disney.
The Mico Max 30 Infant car seat (4-30 lbs) is quite luxurious from first look and the base was installed quickly and easily in our RAV4. Swift installation is largely due to the latch connectors – the ones on this unit are much easier to use than other brands. Maxi-Cosi makes great car seats — and this one is no different. The quick click-connect capabilities and lightweight system make for easy travel with baby. The padding is extremely soft, plush, comfy and breathable — perfect for hot L.A. weather. Perhaps the most parent-friendly aspect is the easily removable cover for washing. The canopy is large and easily adjusts depending on your shading needs. Carriage mode in the stroller offers a full recline for baby, another huge plus. The rebound bar on the car seat base is also a great additional safety feature. A 5-point harness keeps baby secure. Above all else, this premium car seat is so lightweight – another bonus.
The stroller in this travel system is quite large and I feared clunky, but in fact, it feels very secure and sleek on sidewalks and bumpy terrain. I estimate the weight to be about 25lbs. Not a light travel stroller by any means, but also not as heavy as other expensive and well-known models. You have the option of using the regular stroller seat facing forward or backward, or using the car seat adapters so you can easily snap the car seat into the stroller base, OR folding the stroller seat down all the way flat into “carriage mode” – great for when baby needs a nap. I love strollers with the multiple, easy recline feature. This allows for such easy transition from baby to toddler, from naps to exploring. This system easily accommodates from infant to 50lb kiddo and I have no doubt will hold up nicely over the years. Lock capabilities are included on each of the front wheels as well as one easy to use foot break at the front. Not so easy is the folding aspect—a somewhat complex two-step process, and the stroller itself is bulky folded, compared to other systems. That said the stroller feels sturdy and sleek. The wheels are not real tire wheels however they are large and seem to ride smoothly on sidewalks and over bumps. Also included are an adjustable handle bar – comfortable for any user – and a large attachable parent pouch with a zipper—another added bonus. The storage basket underneath is the biggest one I’ve seen yet in any stroller! The amount of stuff you could fit in here is amazing. This is a great stroller system for busy city living!
Overall, this new Disney line for Maxi-Cosi is sleek, comfy and versatile. A fine, luxurious system that is great for every day use and the busy parent and one that will withstand years of use. A great set worthy of the price tag.
