    I am in a stroller dilemma! We are going to WDW later this year and have 3 kids, ages 7.5, 6 and 2.5. What do you suggest for strollers? I was thinking side by side umbrella double and single umbrella for the oldest? Is it an easy nap in double umbrella?

    Hi Christina,

    Your stroller configuration sounds good to me.  I have a lightweight side-by-side umbrella model (Maclaren), and when my kids still napped, it worked fine, because the seats individually reclined.  I picked it up second-had on eBay, and it lasted through many Disney vacations!  I'm guessing your oldest will want to do a bit of walking so while s/he is out, you can use the umbrella to haul, what I'm guessing will be, an impressive amount of "park gear" for your family.  As for napping in a traditional (non-reclining) umbrella, I've seen many a content passenger comfortably snoozing down Main Street!  I don't think you have to worry!  Another option, is attaching a "buggy board" to a double stroller, and your oldest two can take turns riding and/or sitting.  If you anticipate that both your six and seven-year-olds will want to sit for the bulk of their time in the parks, go with option #1.

    Have a magical trip!
