    Heather from MI Asked

    182 days and counting!! Wondering about strollers. DD1 will be 2 1/2m shy of her 5th bday and dd2 will be 2wks shy of her 2nd bday. we have a side by side double umbrella stroller that folds up small. but wondering it will be too wide walking around?

    Heather,

    My wife and I have two little girls (now 4 and 6) and we have brought the same side-by-side stroller with us for every trip. It is a collapsible one too, but hardly what I would describe as a small one.

    We have never had any issues with it being too big to get around.

    Getting on a monorail is a breeze, even with it open and the girls sleeping inside.

    Now we do collapse it down when we get on a bus, a boat, or when we are getting into our hotel room. It is just a few inches too wide to get into the room. But we have never had a problem getting it around.

    We find having it with us is a lifesaver! We can keep our backpacks, drinks, and other things in there during the day (just not valuables). The girls have better stamina because they are not walking the entire day. And stroller parking throughout all four parks is abundant and convenient.

    One hint. Even with a stroller you are bringing with you, there is always the chance of someone mixing theirs and yours up. We printed out a letter-sized sign on our computer, laminated it, and then attached it to our stroller handles for identification. It is not just about keeping others from accidentally walking off with our stroller, but is makes finding it easier too.

    If I can answer any follow-up question, feel free to write me back!

    Have a magical vacation!
