    We are planning to stay in the park for our first Disney vacation! We will have an 8, a 5, and twin 18-month-olds, and need advice about bus vs. monorail for a double stroller. Are there steps to the monorail? Will we have to fold the stroller on either

    Hi there Gretchen!

    Congratulations on your upcoming, First Walt Disney World Vacation!

    You'll be thrilled to learn that basically all of Walt Disney World is extremely stroller-friendly!
    When using the monorails around the Magic Kingdom Resort Area or over to Epcot, you'll be able to keep the kids in the stroller and roll it right onto the monorail. There are no stairs to get onto the monorail. When boarding a car you'll simply need to lift the front wheels to get on or proceed to a car which is equipped with an accessible ramp. At Resorts and Parks, the monorail is accessed via ramps or elevators to get you up to the level of the elevated tracks for this "wonderful highway in the sky."

    When using Disney Transportation buses, you will indeed need to fold your stroller prior to boarding.

    Some of the larger boats in the Disney Transportation fleet allow for strollers to be wheeled directly onto the boats (the 'Friendships' which operate between Epcot and Hollywood Studios as well as the larger boats servicing Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness Campground) while other, smaller boats will require that you fold your stroller prior to boarding.

    If you have additional questions about your visit, please feel free to write me back Gretchen. I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
