    We are spending 10 days at Disney with a 3 and 5 year old. We were told to bring a stroller. Do you recommend a front/back double strole, side by side double stroller or a side by side double jogging stroller?

    Hi James,

    I would actually recommend two, inexpensive umbrella strollers.  Your five year old may not need to be in a stroller at every park.  Using the two umbrella strollers gives you the option to park one when it isn't in use.  There are even clips you can purchase that are designed to hook two strollers together, essentially making a makeshift double stroller.  Also, a lighter weight stroller is going to make bus transportation easier.   It can be cumbersome trying to get two tired children, all of your accumulated souvenirs and a jogging stroller onto a bus at the end of the evening.

    Whatever option you decide to choose, make sure to wrap something around the handle of your stroller to make it identifiable.  No matter how unique you think your stroller may be, there will be a thousand other guests with the same exact one.  Cast members often move strollers within the stroller parking area to make room for other guests.  If you've wrapped a bandana or ribbon around the handle, you'll have an easier time locating your wandering stroller.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
