    We will be coming to WDW with a 6 month old. What BRAND of stroller would you recommend? Cost not an object. I need something easy to fold (City Mini?) and light and a basket possibly drink holder? What would you recommend?

    Hi, Emma! I'm a big fan of bringing your own stroller to the parks. I'm also a big fan of hunting down decent coffee in Walt Disney World, though you didn't ask about that (but if you'd like to know, as a new parent yourself, holler back!) So let's get back on topic.

    I think comfort of the kid is king. And since your kid is 6 months old, comfort = kid sleeping. All people boarding a Disney bus are required to fold their strollers. So, if you get your kid to sleep in their stroller while at a park, you'd have to extract said bambino before embarking on the bus. And that could wake your kid (and not be swell for you!)

    So, I say bring a stroller that has a removable infant car seat that your kid can sleep in. (I'd only go with the City Mini if it has a car seat attachment.) We liked our Evenflo comfort system when we had just one kid. Such a system allows your kid to stay sleeping no matter where you are at any hour. It also gives you more flexibility and park time. If your kid falls asleep in the seat, you can bring the seat with you on many attractions, whereas you'd be limited in options by keeping your kid sleeping in a stroller. Totally get a stroller with a drink holder too. If your hubby's not thirsty, you can waylay conflicting beverages by having a place to park both your coffee and your pineapple soft serve beverage from Aloha Isle.
