    Going to WDW with a 2.5, 4.5 & 8 yr old. We are bring a stroller (have a car). Which stroller? Single stroller reclines all the way, good for naps & fits the 2 & 4 squeezed in at the same time. Or Sit n' Stand which would even give the 8 y

    Jennifer,

    Definitely go with the single stroller that reclines. I find one of the biggest uses of a stroller is as a site for a quick cat nap.

    Here are some other stroller suggestions;

    Make sure your stroller is colorfully marked. Not that people steal strollers, but absent-minded parents often find themselves hours later pushing someone else's stroller. Honest mistakes, but a real pain. Let the kids help create signs and other fun stuff as a pre-vacation project!

    Pace the 8-year old. Make sure that you are giving him/her plenty of time to rest, especially if you are covering a lot of ground.

    Use the Baby Care Centers as a cool-down zone for all the kids!

    Take note as you go through parks for good locations that provide shade and a bit less noise. These are where you might return for an in-stroller nap break. Here are a few suggested locations;

    • Magic Kingdom: Rose Gardens to the left of Cinderella Castle (towards Tomorrowland)
    • Epcot: Rear of the Italy or UK pavilions
    • Hollywood Studios: Sunset Ranch, towards the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
    • Animal Kingdom: Dining grottos by the Flame Tree BBQ

    Have a magical vacation!
