    Planning our visit for August 2011. Daughters are 6 and 3/12. Do you suggest a stroller? Should I rent or bring my double stroller from home?

    Hi William!

    I'm usually a fan of bringing your own stroller. That way you'll have it with you if you're not at the parks, you know how it works and you can recognize it in a crowd! Plus, your kids are used to falling asleep in it!

    For a 6 and 3.5 year old it might be a little different. If your kids aren't the following asleep type (my 5 year old didn't fall asleep in the stroller at Disney last year), then it might be a better fit to get the park strollers. They don't have any big straps or buckles so the kids can hop in and out. You also won't have to worry about having a stroller in your hotel room--or on the buses!

    Your other option is to bring/buy an umbrella stroller or two--they are cheap, light and easy to use! It's kind of a toss up. It really depends on how much your kids like riding in strollers (and how much you like pushing them!)

    I hope that helps!
