    We are traveling with two toddlers. What are you suggestions with strollers? Do you think it is best to bring two, single umbrella strollers or a double umbrella stroller? We have a jogger but feel it's too bulky. Thanks!

    Hi JoAnne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with two toddlers can be so exciting! It also can be a bit nerve wracking with all that there is to plan and think about. Strollers are such a lifesaver and we would never be able to have a successful trip with our toddlers without them. For my family we usually take our two Maclaren strollers from home. The kids are comfortable in them and we love how lightweight they are. They are easy to fold up for the bus transportation and I still can handle holding a child and the stroller comfortably on the bus. I like that if my husband and I have to split up for bathroom breaks or because one child takes a longer nap than the other, we aren’t worried about who will take the stroller. I also feel that a single stroller is easier to maneuver with in a crowd.

    With all of that being said we have in the past had a company called Orlando Stroller Rentals deliver a Citi Mini double jogging stroller to our resort for the length of our stay. My kids loved this stroller and found it easy to relax in. I liked that we didn’t have to bring our strollers through the airport and that the stroller was at our resort hotel when we arrived. The jogging stroller had great steering capabilities and my husband was able to hold the stroller on the bus while I sat with the kids.

    I think that when deciding which stroller option is best, you will just have to think about what you and your children will be most comfortable with while traveling! Either choice is still a great one.

    One last piece of advice, take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located in each of the four theme parks. These are a great place to change a diaper, feed a little one, and even just cool off.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
