    My husband and I are not sure what to do about a stroller. We have 4 year old twin girls. My girls will need a stroller but we are unsure if we should rent a double stroller at the parks or if we should invest in 2 lightweight umbrella strollers?

    Hi Cindy - I absolutely love the rental strollers, because they are so easy to push and are super convenient.  However, even with the length of stay rental cost, it's still pretty expensive to rent a stroller.  You can probably purchase two lightweight umbrella strollers for less than a rental.

    You should consider whether or not the convenience of renting is worth the cost.  When you rent, you won't need to worry about folding and unfolding the stroller to get it on the buses.  You also won't need to find room for it in your hotel room.  For us, this convenience was definitely worth the added cost.

    I hope that helps.  Have a great vacation!
