    DH and i are going to Disney on April 2013, We have 2 boys 9 and 5. Should i rent a stroller, cheap restaurants, ideas. Last time we went we had no kids. Were staying with parents. I got Disney Apps for maps, planing on my iphone.All info is great thx :)

    Hi, Sol!  Whether or not to rent a stroller is really up to the individual kid.  By the time my girls were two, I couldn't keep them in the stroller unless they were sleeping, so much of the time, I was pushing an empty stroller around the park!  You might want to play it by ear, and rent one when you determine that you need one.

    There are so many great dining options!  You'll probably find cheaper eats at the counter service locations, but really, you can find meals at some counter service locations that rival a table service restaurant.  Quick service options that my family loves include Cosmic Ray's at the Magic Kingdom and Flametree Barbecue at Animal Kingdom.  EPCOT has so many amazing options for quick service meals, including the Sunshine Seasons Food Court, where you'll find a variety of options for every dining preference.  

    For table service locations, my family often shares meals.  The portions are really quite generous, and if we add a salad or an appetizer, we usually only need one entree for two of us.  I've had gastric bypass, so I don't eat as much as the average person at any one sitting, but even my husband is satisfied with sharing a meal.

    I hope your vacation leaves you with a million magical memories!
