    Hello! Planning our 18th visit to WDW in Sept. but our 1st with an infant. What kind of stroller would you recommend for a 5 month old and 5 year old? Full size double? Umbrella? We need comfort for both girls but also storage. Staying on site.

    Hi Natalie!

    My first child and third child are about the same age spread as your two.  At that age we used our full-sized double for storage and comfort (we also were trading off with our 3 year old as well, but you won't have that issue).  If you have a full-sized double at home, I'd say bring it and know that your 5 year old will likely be in and out, and not consistently riding.  A sit n stand stroller is also a great option for your little ones as well, as you'll be able to have your 5 year old hop on when they need a break, but honestly, I wouldn't buy a new stroller just for vacation.  Use what you have or see if you can borrow from a friend.  Also, keep in mind that strollers must be folded on Walt Disney World buses, so being familiar with the fold/unfold process is key!  

    Have a magical vacation!
