    My kids are 4 & 6, I know they will need the strollers, but do we bring 2 single umbrella strollers or rent a double from one of the outside companies. Which would be eastiest for the bus ride from the Carribean to the parks?

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kelly!  Having traveled with kids that very same age, I will give you an opinion based on what I found worked best for us.  I've rented from an outside stroller company as well as from Disney, and I've used individual umbrella strollers.  Without a doubt, I liked using two inexpensive umbrella strollers the best.  If you shop for them at home, you can sometimes find them for $11- $19 each. Considering that renting a double stroller at Walt Disney World will cost you $27 for a multi day rate, I think that's a much better deal.  Depending on where you are staying, your walks around your resort may be lengthly.  You'll appreciate having your own when those little legs are especially tired at the end of the day.  Also, the individual umbrella strollers  are light and very simple to fold when getting on and off the buses.  For times that you may want to "connect" your strollers, you can purchase very inexpensive stroller links that you can easily put on and take off.  Various online retailers sell these if you can not find them at a local store.  I don't know how big your airport is, but I found that it was very convenient to roll the kids through the airport and then gate check the strollers.  This obviously depends on what you think would work best for you.  If you choose to rent,  I would absolutely recommend   The strollers are clean, and they will deliver and pick-up your stroller to and from your resort.  

    Whatever you decide, I wish you a magical vacation!
