    Planning to take 6 yo niece to DW. 2 years ago used an umbrella stroller that is now outgrown. With all the walking at DW i think we'll need a stroller again. What stroller would you recommend for a child this size that folds up easily for the buses?

    Hi there Cortney! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  As a mom of four children, I have tried various stroller styles during our many Walt Disney World vacations! My favorite stroller when visiting the "Happiest Place on Earth" is the Graco LiteRider, which has an extra large storage basket (perfect for storing those park essentials and backpacks,) parent's tray with cup holder, removable child's tray, canopy and folds easily into a compact position. With that being said, this stroller is designed for children under 40 pounds so depending on the size of your niece, it may not best suit your needs. The last time we used the Graco LiteRider strollers, my twin boys were five-years-old. We honestly didn't take our strollers once they turned six simply because the boys preferred to walk and we found ourselves pushing empty strollers around the park. If your niece is over 40 pounds, you may want to look at the Maclaren Volo, which is designed for children up to 55 pounds, but also folds easily and is compact. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back if you have any additional questions that I can assist you with. Best wishes for a magical trip, Cortney!
    Happy Travels,
