    We (my husband and I) are going to WDW in July with our 5, 2 and almost 1 year old. We were trying to figure out what to bring, double stroller, double stroller and single, two singles, backpack. What do you think, we will be flying from PHL. Thanks

    Hi there Michelle,

    Based on the ages of your children, I would recommend bringing a double stroller and a lightweight umbrella model for your five-year-old.  If your oldest wants to walk part of the time, you can use his/her stroller to carry what I'm guessing is going to be a pretty impressive amount of park gear!  Your youngest two will likely spend the majority of their time traversing the parks in a stroller, and while your oldest probably never uses a stroller at home, having a set of wheels will enable everyone to move at the same pace.  The amount of walking done during an average day in the parks can tire out an elite athlete, let alone a five-year-old set of legs.

    Some parents with three kids like to take a double and attach a "buggy board" to the back for the oldest to stand on.  My thoughts are that your child would be more comfortable having his or her own seat.  Don't worry about boarding the buses or other transportation with two strollers.  You will be in very good company with many other families.  The drivers and operators are very patient.  You will have plenty of time to collapse your strollers, and get your children safely on board.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
