    We are traveling to Disneyland in about a month with a 2 year old and 5 month old. Wondering if we should bring and stroller for the 5 month old or if the rental strollers will work for a 5 month old weighing about 12lbs?

    Hi, Taylor!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question! My advice would be to bring along your own stroller for your 5-month-old, especially if he or she is more comfortable in a reclined position. The strollers available for rent at the Disneyland Resort don't recline, so the child has to stay in one fixed sitting position, and they also have limited cushion and no extra head support for an infant. I remember bringing my son to the theme parks at that age, and he was much happier in the stroller he was used to riding in. Plus, I always liked to have a stroller with us for walking to and from the theme parks, around the Downtown Disney District, and even in the airport. 

    I hope this helps, Taylor, and that you enjoy a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to "The Happiest Place on Earth!" Please write back with any other questions you may have. 

    Wishing you magic,
