    I have DD (4,2,1). I have a combi double stroller and an umbrella stroller (no seat recline). We will be using bus transportation. I have considered buying a double umbrella (w/seat recline) and a new single (w/sr). Should I buy new strollers for bus?

    If you're getting new strollers because you need them anyway or because you want some feature (such as reclining seats) that your current strollers don't have, then by all means go ahead and purchase them. But I would not go out and spend gobs of money on all new strollers just for the Disney buses. Any foldable stroller is fine on the Disney buses. A lighter or more compact stroller might make getting onto the bus a teeny smidge easier, but on the other hand a larger, plusher stroller might make park touring more comfortable for your child.

    I traveled to WDW several times with three children under the age of five. There is just a lot of stuff that goes along with this -- strollers, diaper bags, backpacks, etc. There's really no way to avoid this. Travel with small children takes patience and a little muscle no matter what you're doing, where you're going, or what brand of equipment you have.  I have found other Disney guests to be exceedingly helpful. Nearly all of them have been in the same position at some time in their lives. We often had other guests help us lift a stroller onto a bus or give up a seat so that I could sit down with a sleeping child. Having a smaller stroller might save you less than ten minutes of time over the course of a week long vacation. In my mind, that's not enough reason to spend several hundred dollars.

    Relax, and have a great vacation.
