    I was told to bring my own stroller. Will a Graco double the non-side by side work well to get around or should I pack my sit n stand which is small but not as small as an umbrella stroller? My kids will be 4 and 2.

    The answer to this depends on a few things. Is there any possibility that your 4 year old would nap in the stroller? Bear in mind that even a child who doesn't normally nap can get pretty worn out at Disney World. There's lots of heat and activity that can impact a child's sleep schedule. So, if both your children will nap, then bring the big double.

    Another thing to consider is family dynamics. During our sit-and-stand years, my kids would always bicker about who got to sit and who got to stand. (And which option was more attractive was constantly changing.) If parity is important to your kids, then bring the big double.

    Yet another factor to consider is where you are staying. If you're on the monorail line, you won't have to fold your stroller as often as you would at a value resort where you'll be traveling more by bus. Folding large strollers and hauling them onto the Disney buses can be a challenge regardless of what stroller you have, but smaller is sometimes easier.

    I hope these ideas will help you make your decision.
