    Staying at the SpringhillSuites Maingate. What's best way to get to the park for Breakfast with Minnie with three young kids (2, 2 & 6 yo) without a stroller. We intend to rent a stroller at the park.

    Hey there, Jessica! Thanks for popping in to planDisney with your question. I bet you’re super excited that you have only a few more sleeps before you arrive at the Happiest Place on Earth! 

    I have stayed at several Good Neighbor Hotels myself, although I haven’t stayed at Springhill Suites by Marriott Anaheim Maingate before. I was looking at their information on the Disneyland website, and it says there is a shuttle from the hotel available for a fee. I suggest calling the hotel to get information about the shuttle and cost. 

    As another option, in looking at a map, it appears your hotel is very close to the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure, from where you can take the tram to the main entrance of the parks. Strollers are available for rent at the main entrance. I can’t tell exactly what that walk would look like from your hotel to Mickey & Friends with three little Mouseketeers but maybe you can ask the hotel about that too! 

    Jessica, I wanted to mention something that saved me when my littles were very little – the Baby Care Centers. They are complimentary and a nice place to regroup if you need a break, especially with your two-year olds. They have toddler-sized toilets, diaper changing areas, and microwaves, to name a few amenities. It’s a little slice of comfort to take a break! At Disneyland Park, the Baby Care Center is at the end of Main Street, U.S.A.. At Disney California Adventure Park, it’s next to the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. 

    Also, I’m not sure if you’ve heard about Rider Switch, but it’s a way for one adult Guest to experience an attraction while another adult Guest waits with the non-riders, and then they can switch, without having to wait in line again. You can ask a Cast Member at an attraction if Rider Switch is available. You will see that many attractions don’t have height requirements so hopefully all of you can experience most attractions together!

    Something your littles might love too is the Disney Junior Dance Party! It’s a great way to see character pals, get the wiggles out and then take a nap in the stroller. The show is about 30 minutes, and they have several performances throughout the day. You can check the schedule in the Disneyland mobile app

    Wishing you a magical, memorable adventure!
