    hi there.....visiting disneyworld nxt month. we have 3 kids (7, 4, 2)......the ultimate question, should we go with 2 chicco umbrella strollers or rent a citi mini double down there??? what would you recommend??? thanks!!!

    Hi there, Julia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. As a mother of three children, I can totally understand your predicament!

    I have been traveling to Walt Disney World Resort with a double stroller since my first trip with children! I actually have the City Mini Double stroller and decided to buy it after seeing so many of them at Disney. One of my favorite things about it is how far the sun shades can be pulled down over the children and how they almost completely protect them from the hot, Florida sun. This is definitely an added bonus if anyone is napping too. The other thing I love is how easily it folds for loading and unloading on the buses. By using a double stroller instead of two umbrella strollers, one parent will have two free hands to help the children on and off the buses as well. Navigating a double stroller through Disney World is probably easier than you think. There are only a few stores where things will get a little tight and that is usually my husband's excuse to leave me to shop by myself!

    If you decide to rent the stroller, I would ask if a rain cover is included with the rental. If not, you can pick up a generic brand one at a baby store, and it will be worth the money if you have rain showers during your trip.

    From one outnumbered mom to another, good luck! I hope you have an amazing vacation!
