    We are traveling to WDW in 13 days with our kids, 7, 2 and 5 months. I am looking for some planning advice for the 5 month old. Is a double stroller too big for the park? Is it easiest to ship supplies, bring them or buy them there?

    Hi, Kelly!  You definitely will see people with double strollers at the parks.  However, when my children were that little, we found it easier to move around if my husband and I each had a stroller.  The double ones are just so cumbersome in crowds, restaurants and shops, and it's almost impossible to fold them up quickly when you're getting on/off the bus or on certain attractions.  For the 5-month-old, you might want to carry him/her in a Snugli or carrier which you strap on.  The temperatures shouldn't be that warm when you're there, and it may be easier to keep track of the baby and the 7-year-old if you have your hands free while someone else pushes the 2-year-old in the stroller.

    Packing diapers for two and possibly formula and food can take up a lot of space and precious suitcase weight.  You may want to check out for delivery to your Disney resort, or you can pick up some supplies at your resort's shop.  Just keep in mind that a grocery delivery service is going to charge a fee, and the shops at Disney resorts are going to be almost twice as expensive as prices of similar items at home.  I hope this helps you plan.  Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
