    I will be visiting Disney for the first time with my 4 1/2 year old and 1 year old. With some research we have decided bringing a stroller is best for us versus renting one. But our question is what is best - sit n stand or double side by side stroller?

    Greetings, Jennifer, from a fellow New Jerseyan! 

    Strollers are a critical issue when it comes to Walt Disney World vacations.  You and your family will be doing plenty of walking on your magical vacation and I'm sure your little ones will be grateful for a place to rest between attractions.  In general, I would say that a sit & stand stroller would be better than a double stroller because it would fold up easier.  That will be helpful as you board Disney buses and boats.  Because they're less wide, they sit & stand variety are also easier to maneuver through the parks. However, if your two little ones seem to both go down for naps at the same time, you're better off with the double stroller.  Otherwise, one of the adults will be carrying a sleeping child and we all know, no matter how cute and cuddly they may be, sleeping kids get heavy! 

    In general, my advice regarding strollers on vacation would be to go with the lightest weight option your family can manage while keeping in mind the resting patterns of your children. 

    Sending you extra pixie dust for a truly magical vacation!  Let us know if you need any additional advice.
