    I have 4 day PH + resort stay tix traveling with 2 & 5 yo. We have 1 basic stroller. Is it worth it to buy a 2nd stroller or to rent a double stroller for 4 days? Do the park strollers have storage for bags and are they comfy? I can't find pics onlin

    Hi Katie!

    I would definitely recommend that you have another stroller available.  Your 5 year old probably won't want to ride all day, but will likely need to rest at least at some point.  Disney involves a LOT of walking!  It is not unusual for my family to log more than 10 miles a day while in the parks!

    Because your child is older, an umbrella stroller might work well for you.  They are generally inexpensive, lightweight, and fold quite easily, so one could likely be stored in the basket underneath your traditional stroller.

    Renting a stroller in the parks gets you a jogging-style, hard plastic stroller.  The do not have a storage basket, and frankly I think they are expensive and not very comfortable.  A rental would not be my first recommendation. has pictures of them if you'd like to take a look - visit the website and search 'strollers'.  The first link will give you detailed information and photos of what is available.

    Have a great trip!
