    Hello all, We are trying to decide which stroller to bring from home, our travel system (roomie/comfy) or sit n' stand (options of how to ride). Our daughter will be 2yrs 10mos. We will be staying off-site and will have a car. Would love opinions. Thx!

    Howdy Stephanie!  What a great question!  

    My initial thought was to suggest that you take the travel system now and save the sit n' stand for when your daughter is older.  She will be super comfy while being whisked around the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    That being said, we didn't have a sit n' stand stroller when my children were your daughter's age and there were a couple of times that we had mini meltdowns because our princess and/or prince just didn't want to get back in the stroller.  The opportunity to stand on the stroller might have been an easier sell.

    Have you visited any location that is remotely similar to Walt Disney World...great location but long days and a lot of walking from one place to another where she would get in and out of her stroller often?  Is there one stroller that she prefers over the other?

    How much storage room does each stroller have?  Which one is easier to push through crowds or tight spots?   Does the sit portion of the sit 'n stand recline enough that she can take a nap?

    At the end of the day, you will be fine with either.  As I review my answer, I realize I have asked more questions than I have answered.  Hopefully, you will be able to make a decision based on the questions I raised.

    Regardless of the stroller that you bring, I want to encourage you to bring a small blanket or towel with you.  Use it to cover the stroller during the day when it is being stored outside and not in use.  We have had numerous occasions that the stroller was too hot to sit in and that becomes a challenge for all.

    Please let me know what you decide and why that choice works best for you.  It would be great to share your information with other Guests. 

    Have fun planning your vacation and have a magical day!
