    Hello Jonathan!

    I have 5 young children and we're still a two-stroller family when we visit Walt Disney World. Admittedly we move at a much slower pace with a double and a single stroller, but we have learned to go with the flow and take our days at the kids'  speed. We use a double side-by-side stroller and a single umbrella stroller. If a child ever decides not to ride, I'm also a winner, because now I have a carrier for all my extra things like a diaper bag, water bottles, snacks, jackets, ponchos, etc. I would use whatever your family is most accustomed to using when going on a longer day trip such as the zoo.

    There is a lot walking at the Walt Disney World Resort, but if you choose not to bring two strollers then some kids can alternate taking breaks in the stroller. The cons for me in having two strollers is having to fold them when boarding Disney bus transportation. It can sometimes be a little tricky, but by the end of the trip, you'll be a pro. Also if you find you don't need two strollers, you can always leave one behind in the room. Thank goodness for baby carriers! I loved having my hands free with my babies while they observed new sights and sounds as we walked through the theme parks.

    If you have any other questions, please come back and visit us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Have a magical vacation!
