    We have a 4 1/2 year old and an almost 6 year old, and we'll be doing a 3 Day Hopper. Should I bring my large double stroller or smaller umbrella stroller? I know we need one, just wondering if I should lug the bigger one. Thanks!!

    Hi Heather,

    The stroller debate! It's a tough one. I've done Walt Disney World both ways and once the kids get a bit bigger like yours, the weight of them in a double stroller (plus the storage - day bag, merchandise, snacks, etc) can wreak havoc on your back. If I had to choose, I'd vote smaller umbrella strollers. They are much easier to push through crowds and a cinch to bring onto the buses. Keep in mind all strollers must be broken down before stepping onto the buses or boats. Double strollers are quite heavy and you may also have sleepy mouseketeers at the end of the evening. 

    I hope my answer was helpful, Heather. I'm happy to answer any other questions you have about your upcoming trip. 

    Best wishes for a magical vacation!
