    HiI am coming to Disney with a 6 year old who is obese. And an average size 3 year old. Just wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a stroller? I was thinking of using a wheelchair but not sure they will both fit. Would love to know your suggestions.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, Cindy. We're so glad to see you again and we're super excited to hear you're planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Wahoo!

     A stroller is an absolute necessity for my family's adventure-filled days in the theme parks. Our stroller provides a place for my kiddos to rest their tired little legs, but it also provides some much-needed storage for our park bag (and souvenirs, of course)! My family just loves our City Mini Double Stroller. The seats recline nearly flat, giving my 3-year old a comfortable place to snooze if she needs a quick nap in the theme parks. This stroller also has extra-large shades, keeping my kids protected from that beautiful, but strong, Florida sunshine!

     I recommend renting a stroller from ScooterBug, Disney's featured provider. ScooterBug offers City Mini Double Strollers for rent, but if you don't think it would accommodate your 6-year old, this company has some other options that should fit the bill. Visit their website and check out the Freedom Push Adaptive Needs Stroller. This stroller is designed for larger children and has a larger weight capacity than most strollers. The Freedom Push Adaptive Needs Stroller would only accommodate your 6-year old, but you could then rent the City Mini Single for your 3-year old. Having a stroller for each of your kiddos is actually a great idea! We've had to split up in the theme parks a few times, and that meant one child was left without a ride because we couldn't divide our double stroller into two! If you really want to only manage one rental, you may want to consider an Extra Wide Wheelchair from ScooterBug. This wheelchair measures 24" wide which may be more than enough room for both your Mouseketeers!

     No matter what you decide to stroll through the theme parks with, be sure to take something along with you to mark your ride. There are designated stroller and wheelchair parking areas and yours will be among a sea of others. I always tie Mickey Mouse ribbons to the handlebar of our stroller, but I've seen Guests use balloons, nameplates, and even battery-operated twinkle lights!

     I hope this was helpful, Cindy. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
