    planning our first trip in April. 2A 3C(16, 10, 2) children do not do waiting very well & with the stroller going to the parks, would it be in our best interest to rent a car or use the resort buses?

    Hi, Theresa!

    Personally, I am 100% in favor of using resort buses over a car.  The buses really usually run about every 20 minutes, and sometimes even more frequently than that.  While you'll have to fold up the stroller for the bus, I still think that it's less of a hassle than parking, then taking a shuttle to the park entrance.  You'll also save money by not having a rental bill.

    For the younger ones, we usually crack open a container of popcorn, a bag of fruit snacks or some other small snack to help pass the time.  By the time they've even noticed that they're almost finished, the bus has arrived!

    Don't forget that if you have dining reservations at any of the monorail-accessible resorts, you don't even need to take the little one out of the stroller; just roll right on and away you go.

    Please send the Panel any additional questions you might think of regarding your upcoming trip! I'm sure that it will be MAGICAL!
