    My husband and I are debating on wether to bring our own stroller or rent at the parks. Which do you prefer?

    Hi, Mandy!  I always brought my own.  I want to preface that by saying we almost always drove, but even going through the airport, I loved having my own stroller with me.  If not for the baby, everyone would pile carry on bags in there, which made getting around the airport with a family of five a bit easier.

    The strollers at Walt Disney World are plenty roomy, but they aren't really designed for infants.  Once I got into the habit of taking mine, it was just easier.  I had a big basket underneath to store the diaper bag, plus jackets and souvenirs, and I preferred the fact that my stroller reclined for sleeping children, which the strollers at Disney World do not.

    I think the strollers at Disney are really great for older babies and toddlers, and the convenience can't be beaten, but I just liked having mine when we visited the theme parks.  

    I hope this helps!
