    I am planning our first trip with our four year old son and 22 month old daughter. What type of stroller do you recommend? Our son will use the stroller some, but does like to walk. Our daughter may nap in the stroller.

    Hi Kirsten!

    Some members of the panel like use two single stroller for their children just in case one parent needs to take a child back to the resort for a nap or whatnot.  That still leaves a stroller for the parent still playing in the parks.  Since my husband and I don't split up, we always bring our double.

    I have an almost 4 and almost 1 year old and I never leave home without my City Mini double stroller.  In my opinion, it is the perfect stroller for the parks.  The sun shades are huge and come down further than any other stroller I've seen and each individual seat back goes all the way down for when it's time for napping.  The backs have an mesh screen that allows air to flow through so the kids don't get too hot while they are in there.  If you don't want the mesh, there is a flap that you can close it off with.  This double stroller is really easy to maneuver through the crowds and it's big and bulky like you'd think a double stroller would be.  There is also tons of room underneath to store your things and souvenirs you pick up along the way.  My son also like to walk and I have no issues with balance when it's just my daughter. 

    If you are planning on leaving your stroller at home and renting one while on vacation, you can rent the City Mini double stroller from Orlando Stroller Rental.  They have VERY reasonable prices and will drop off and pick up right at your resort.  You can check them out here:

    Have a magical day!
