    We are going to Disney and our children are 3 & 7. The older one still gets tired and last time we rented a double stroller at the parks. It was great except you have to give them up and then wait for a bus and get to the room. Is there a better way

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks so much for writing!

    I am a big fan of using strollers at Disney for children who are too old for them in the "real world".  The amount of walking involved during a typical trip can quickly tire out a marathon runner, let alone a 6 or 7 year old pair of legs!  I agree that Disney rentals are great for older kids, but having to give them up at the gates to the parks can be tough.  Here are some thoughts on a solution.   There are double strollers that can accommodate older/heavier children, including some joggers.  The can be cumbersome, however, especially getting through turnstiles and airports.  I have two single, high end umbrella strollers that can accommodate kids up to 55 pounds (MacClaren).  I was lucky and found mine second hand on eBay.  We find that these work great and are a snap to fold up on the buses.  Another option is renting a stroller from an outside vendor for your entire trip.  I have heard great things from guests who used orlandostrollerrentals.com.  Their double stroller can accommodate a total weight of 100 pounds and is basically a slim double jogger, making it easy to push.  These strollers can be delivered to your resort and used throughout your entire stay (including the dreaded walk with sleeping kids in tow to the bus stop!)

    I hope one of my suggestions helps you have a magical trip!
