    Confused about whether to drive from resort to Parks or whether to take WDW transportation. We have a 5 year old and are planning on taking a full size stroller. We don't want to be a pain to people using the buses. Please let us know which way is best.

    Hi there Kim!

    You should absolutely feel comfortable using Disney transportation to travel from your resort to the theme parks.  You will be in good company with other guests bringing single and double strollers, in a variety of shapes, sizes and models.  In fact, I've been on many buses where it seemed like there were more strollers than kids!  The bus drivers are very patient while waiting for guests to load and unload their kids, park "gear" and strollers.  I have travelled to Disney several times with two kids alone and a double stroller.  I have never had any trouble getting on or off the buses.  You won't need to fold your stroller on the monorails, and will be able to wheel it right onto many boats as well.

    If you prefer to drive to the parks, you can do so, however, it is certainly not necessary.  My family almost always uses Disney transportation to travel to and from the parks, and find it to be convenient and reliable.  Just about only time we chose to drive is when we travel between resorts for dining reservations (for example, if we are staying at the Beach Club, and have dinner plans at the Wilderness Lodge), as it is generally quicker and a bit more direct than using Disney transportation to go between resorts.

    Have a wonderful trip!
