    My children are 6 and 8 years old and we are taking our first week long trip to Disney World in two weeks. I am vacillating on whether we should bring an umbrella stroller. Thoughts please?

    Hello Rebecca and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where it's our pleasure to assist you in planning towards a trip to Walt Disney World Resort that is practically perfect in every way. 
    I can just imagine how excited your and your lovely family are beginning to feel now your 1 whole week long Disney stay is right around the river bend in the next few short days, I know how the excitement builds when my own counter to Disney gets down into the lower digits! 
    As the parent of 4 children I can totally relate to your valid concerns about perhaps bringing an umbrella stroller from home with you on your trip. I'm happy to share that in my own experience I can tell you that I much prefer happy children, not tired and grumpy ones whilst vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort and therefore have certainly utilised and been glad of Stroller Rentals during my own family trips.  
    Another option to consider instead of bringing your stroller from home would be to use a Disney Featured Provider for stroller rental and helpful contact details can be found contained within this link.
    I must say that now that my children are much, much older I actually miss having the convenience of a stroller when touring the Disney Theme Parks as it's such a great way to transport everyones bags and gear instead of carrying it! 
    Wishing you a more than magical upcoming weeks stay at Walt Disney World Resort
    Have a great Disney day.
