    Have DS5 and DS2 with baby #3 on the way. Trip planned mid Sept for 1wk. Was thinking about buggy board but doesn't seem to fit on any double strollers in our budget. Any ideas? I expect our DS5 will get tired at some point. but want to pack light. THANKS!

    Yes, your five-year-old will likely grow weary not only from logging all those miles, but also from the heat and humidity that is almost sure to be present during your September vacation.  It's a good idea to plan on him needing a stroller for the majority of the trip.

    We are a family with four children, and have yet to visit Walt Disney World without the need for at least two strollers.  Here are some ideas for you:

    - have you considered renting a stroller from an outside agency while you're in Orlando?  If not, you may want to look into it.  Often times, it's the least expensive option.  There are multiple options available including single, double, sit-and-stand, and even jogging strollers.  Just go to Google and type in "Orlando stroller rentals".  Your search should yield a few helpful links.  You'll find that many of the agencies provide delivery to Disney resorts.  If you go that route, you could always bring an inexpensive umbrella stroller from home to use for the other child.

    - might you and your newest baby be comfortable using a sling or baby carrier?  If so, you could go with just one double stroller and the littlest one could enjoy a bird's eye view from mom or dad's chest!  The newest designs of slings are created with long term comfort of both mom and baby in mind.  A carrier or sling would also provide a cozy napping spot for baby number three.  Just a thought.

    Hopefully one of these ideas will work for your family.

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
