    I have an umbrella stroller and a full size one. Which one should I bring? Don't want to rent will be flying. They both recline fully and have cup holders but umbrella does not have snack tray. Full size is heavy to load onto bus. Will I have to do that?

    Hello Amber,

    Traveling with a toddler is something I have lots of experience with. You are in for some amazing memories of your little one(s) lighting up at all of the magical experiences in store. You are smart to bring a stroller from home. While you can rent them in the theme parks, I always bring my own since it is familiar to the child and you can use it outside of the parks, too.

    I would highly recommend bringing your umbrella-style stroller, since you will have to fold it up to board the buses or some of the boats. You can roll it onto the monorails and some of the boats without breaking it down, but you will find yourself folding it up on many occasions and the larger strollers are bulky and heavy, especially during those busy times of day when the buses are full to capacity and there is a chance you could be standing.

    I hope this aids you in your decision of which stroller to bring. Regardless of your choice, I hope you have a wonderful time. Keep those questions coming. We are eager to help other guests make their trips just as magical and stress free as they can be.
