    Been to wynncore a few times but never with kids. Does anyone know the stroller policy? Not the official policy, I know its no for guests and hotel guests. But do you know if it is enforced? I saw a couple but didnt know if they were chased down by security later on. Thanks

    There is signage at most entrances saying 'no strollers allowed' but I have seen the odd few in there ignoring the rule. Haven't seen security enforcing this. Probably if the kids/parents are well behaved, stick to the non gaming areas and don't block the walkways staff turn a blind eye.

    Might be hit and miss but I have seen one family turned away. Coming off the bridge from Palazzo, turn right into the mall entrance. The security guard by the door turned the young family with a stroller away before they even got inside. Hotel guests are fine but I imagine you'd have to flash a room card.

    They have no problem with registered hotel guests bringing strollers. But the policy is to turn away tourists passing through. I can't think of much for kids to see or do there anyway. If you really need to bring a small child, you could probably check the stroller with a bellman and carry them around.

    I've seen people with strollers stopped and asked for room cards at Wynn.

    This was 4 years ago, but we were eating in one of the restaurants inside Encore and they would not let a family with a baby bring the stroller into the restaurant. They had to carry the sleeping baby in and make an awkward bed using two chairs. The mother could hardly eat for trying to keep an eye on the baby to make sure he didn't roll off. Since we were the only other patrons in the place, I couldn't see why they didn't just let them bring the stroller in and tuck it away in the corner.

    While I've never understood the desire to try to drag a baby and stroller around in Vegas, I have never been bothered by them, either. If I got bothered by everything I had to walk around in Vegas, my blood pressure would shoot the top of my head off.

    I've seen people get 86'd and have their baby confiscated by security. I wouldn't risk it!

    I never understood why so many people are vicious about families bringing their kids to Vegas. Its not as if Mom's are sitting their kids next to the crap's tables or Dad's are pushing a stroller through the night clubs. If I were to post in a Disney forum that DIsneyland was no place for couples without kids I would be branded a dick. So much hate!

    For the record I brought a youngen to Vegas before and the whole family had a great time. Vegas isn't just gambling and why should I have to put off visiting places I love because I decided to breed? Over 4 days vacation we saw Siegfried & Roy. Watched the dolphins and took pictures with the big cats. Did Shark Reef. Watched a volcano go off. Had fun at Circus Circus adventure dome. Hit up the Planet Ho shops, walked through the forum shops, bought a Vegas Exclusive Stitch doll at the Fashion Show Disney Store. Won a spongebob toy at Excalibur's Fun-Dungeon etc. Lil Grid loved riding the monorail, or seeing the flowers at Bellagio. During naps or at night the wife and I would switch off to play in the casino.

    Why people feel that a vacation spot is "just for them" seems selfish to me.

    Don't forget, you also showed them excessive gambling, a multitude of prostitutes in action, shit tons of alcohol consumption not to mention the constant exposure to second hand smoke, etc....congrats!

    it's my opinion that kids don't belong in Vegas , and it is simply that...my opinion....Cheers!

    How can I forget things that never happened? We never sat and watched a casino for "excessive gambling" We didnt sit on the strip and look for "a multitude of prostitutes" Not like my kid would even know the difference. Didn't sit in a bar to see "shit tons of alcohol consumption" or hang out side of clubs to see the same. And the malls, aquariums, theme parks etc are all non smoking. You do Vegas your way but thats not the only way to do Vegas. I dont judge you and I do Vegas differently with a bunch of guys then i do with my family. i do things differently with just the wife as well. Vegas is lots of things to lots of people.

    Unless I missed the part of M&M world where the gambling, smoking, drunk hookers were I'd like to say we were fine. Maybe you missed my list of things we did and saw. Hitting up the naked city behind the Strat was not one of them. Obviously its your opinion. But judgmental comments like this are completely one sided to people that never bother to experience everything Vegas has to offer. The strip makes 35% of its money on gambling. That means most people arent there to gamble. I know people that go just for the shops. Or the pools. Or the shows.

    I'm sure if someone from those segments posted " I go to see the Cirque shows and hit the malls, Vegas is no place for drinkers/smokers & gamblers" they would get flamed. Yet people like you say the same thing about traveling with kids and expect a pass. If someone is stupid enough to set a stroller in the middle of the casino while they have a smoke or pull on a slot they are idiots. But lets not lump all vacationers together.

    I think it's another thing Wynn learned at Bellagio, where there is an almost constant I-15 of strollers night and day and early AM through the lobby and casino. Especially in summer.
    The chances of someone who is staying elsewhere and has little kids in a stroller putting any money out is far overstripped by the aggravation to his players and guests.
    Bellagio again being the representative example.

    Maybe it's an urban legend but what I had heard way back when Steve had the Bellagio he had a mishap with a mom, her child and stroller. I heard that Steve has a vision problem and while walking through his hotel he tripped on a stroller with child and received a lot of heat from the mother. This resulted in a no stroller and young children policy for people visiting the Bellagio. Back when the free tram between Monte Carlo and Bellagio I had gone to see the Bellagio with my wife and young daughter when I noticed a sign at the Monte Carlo side of the tram entry warning against strollers and young children. I checked with the attendant and she replied that my daughter didn't seem that young and that she was well behaved. She let us through.

    I don't know what rose colored glasses you see Vegas in but I see parents with tots at slots all too often or left unattended in nearby food courts despite the fact that any creep could snatch them away. So yeah, folks are going to tee of on parents. It's not that adults own Vegas, we are just tired of parents who don't parent. But that being said, you may have found plenty for the kids to do. But I personally when I see the list of family activiites in Vegas, I see a bunch of stuff that can be done elsewhere without having that amount of sex and alcohol in the mix. It's a bit odd to hear a parent say their families come to the strip and not have their kids exposed to adult things, especially when the first billboard you usually see come out of the airport is generally of a mostly naked woman.

    Well said Leo21

    I can't tell you how many times I have heard parents b itch about smoking by their kids. I was told...I have kids here! Can this be a non-smoking area? I was standing,watching the Bellagio fountains and they came behind me. Let my kid in...she/he is 2 they need to see. See what? Like they will remember.
    Eating at an expensive restaurant...love to hear the kids crying begging to go to bed...passed out on the table. The ones awake are asking for a bite (yes this really happened) the parents expect me to think its soooo cute. No...not really.
    You might be the 1 in 100 parent that knows how to take you'r kids to Vegas. But I have been ran over by strollers at 2am and have had a crappy meal b/c you think you'r kids have every right to be here!

    Or how about check the child with the bellman and use the stroller as a liquor-carrying device? LOL!
