    I have a two year old and a 5 month old. I am worried my side by side stroller will be too big to fit on transportation...Would you suggest it is better to bring two strollers? Thank you

    Hi Melinda,

    As long as you can fold up your double stroller, you're certainly able to bring it on to Disney transportation.  However, I'm not a huge fan of the double stroller.  Sure, they're a necessity if you're traveling alone with your kids, but if there is another adult with you I think you'll be happier with two strollers. 

    • Single strollers can often be folded with one quick motion while boarding the bus, and they're less awkward.
    • It's easier to maneuver single strollers through a crowded park.
    • Single strollers allow you and your husband to go in separate directions if only one of your children need to be fed or changed.
    • If your five month old is sleeping right when you have reservations to dine, you have a much better chance of a sympathetic cast member letting you bring a single stroller into the restaurant.
    Now, having said all of that.  I don't recommend going out and purchasing two single strollers.  If a double is all you have, use it.  I've used a double stroller at Disney World before, and it's very doable.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
