    Hey Tanya..kids are 9-5-2 ..getting a dble stroller from Orl stroller rental..? is would my 59lb 9 y.o. do ok with a buggy board? amazon site says weight limit is 65lbs don't wanna rent separate stroller at WDW 4 him..pls help...

    Hi Natacha,

    Thanks so much for writing.  I wasn't sure about the buggy board, so I called Orlando Stroller Rental.  The total weight capacity for the stroller (including kids and park "stuff" is 100 pounds.)   Anything in excess of this starts to compromise the integrity of the stroller's frame and puts its precious cargo's safety (the kiddos) in jeopardy.  They don't permit additional equipment (including buggy boards) to be attached to their rentals, so, unfortunately, it is not an option. 

    I know renting a second stroller isn't your top choice, but I have another idea.  I use a lightweight, relatively high end umbrella stroller that has high weight capacity (about 60 pounds.)  Mine is a MacClaren that I picked up "gently used" on eBay.  I've seen them all over at yard sales, consignment shops and eBay.  You could probably get one for less than the cost of renting an additional single stroller.  The stroller holds my big kids easily, weighs less than 10 pounds and is a snap to travel with.  Since you plan on renting a double when you arrive, you can use it to cart your youngest through the airport, and wherever necessary before you get your rental.   Then, you'll be able to use it to afford the 9 year old a break in the parks and/or to haul your park gear when s/he is walking.

    I'm guessing this isn't exactly the answer you were looking for, but hopefully it helps a bit.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
