They were great and so much easier than carrying drinks, the freebies, and all the neat stuff you purchase in a backpack or purse, not to mention kids jackets and changes of clothes. If Disneyland or Sea World had allowed them, I would have used it there too. For there I used my SIL's stroller. They are awesome.
For going to the grocery store, if you have a good "box boy" they will help you out and pack the heavy stuff at the bottom and the squishable stuff on the top. I used to try and load the belt at the checkout in order of heavy to light. I would also get reusable bags because those make it even easier.
They are a great help. I would buy one again if I was in an area where I could use it.
