Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hi - Saw your answer regarding buggy board, I have DD5, DD2, and DD1. Would you go with 2 strollers or the buggy board option or maybe a combination of both. We will be going Sept.6 for our first time and staying at POR. We are very excited!

- This is all slightly complicated, so bear with me.
First, read this post about clipping two single umbrella strollers together HERE.
So, this is what we did, we had the two umbrellas, the connector clips, AND the buggy board. This gave us tons of flexibility (and lots of luggage, but that kind of goes with the territory at this stage).
- Mom could take the oldest child and one of the younger ones on the single stroller plus the buggy board, while dad had the other young one in the other single.
- Mom could take both younger kids with one on the buggy and the other in stroller, while dad had the older child in the stroller (necessary sometimes).
- Mom could clip the strollers together and take the two younger kids, while dad takes the older child walking somewhere. Dad is getting a good deal in all of this don't you think ;-)
The only thing that doesn't work so well is one adult pushing the whole combination of three kids. Even with sturdy umbrellas (we were using Maclarens), the clips are not really strong enough for this particular combination. When did live in New York City until my twins were two years old. During that time, every day I pushed a double Maclarens, plus the buggy board myself all through the streets of Manhattan as part of my daily routine. (Boy do I wish I had those arms now.) It was heavy, but it did work using a double stroller, but having the combination of the three kids using the single strollers and the clips is more tenuous.
Can you tell that I used to spend a lot of time thinking about strollers?
Hope you have a great first trip to WDW!
