    We always rent a double city mini from an Orlando company. They are a pain to bring on the busses. We are considering staying at the Wilderness Lodge and I was wondering about bringing the stroller onto the boat. Is it easier than on the busses?

    Hey, Jean!

    First of all, you'll love Wilderness Lodge -- the lobby is breathtaking and the proximity to Fort Wilderness and the Magic Kingdom resort area is phenomenal.

    I've never been pleased with a side-by-side double stroller anywhere at Walt Disney World.  In fact, the only mode of transportation on which you don't have to fold it is the monorail. Plus, double strollers are a pain to negotiate through tight passageways at the parks and especially in restaurants and shops. When our kids were little, it was easier for us to bring two separate strollers (usually the umbrella variety) in order to be more mobile. I personally liked staying at The Contemporary when my kids were small because we could walk to the Magic Kingdom at the beginning of our day when our legs were fresh, and the resort is the first stop on the monorail when you're tired and coming back "home."

    I think that you're going to experience the same amount of trouble on the boats which travel back and forth between Wilderness Lodge, the Magic Kingdom and Fort Wilderness as you have on the buses with a double stroller. I hope that gives you an idea of what to expect, and if you ever consider taking the ultimate "boat" experience on Disney Cruise Line, I'm your mom for cruise vacation advice.

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel, and I hope you have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.
