    Staying at the Movie Resort and opted for 2 day passes so that we could visit a few other things while in the area, so MK and Epcot are our picks- best way to make the most of them with a 2 YO and 10 MO? Mixed reviews on double stroller, thoughts?

    Hi, Joel!

    You'll love Disney's All-Star Movies Resort!

    For your day in Magic Kingdom, go as early as possible, at park open if you can manage it. Take advantage of a.m. Extra Magic Hours, too, since your little ones are more likely to be up at the crack of dawn than Guests traveling with teens; you'll have more time in the park to yourselves while other Guests are still sleeping. If you need to head back for nap time but want to return to the park for nighttime fun, have a snack on hand to hold them over before heading to the bus stop at ASM; our kids could endure a second bus ride if they were well-rested, had a full tummy and weren't thirsty. An early dinner back at the park could be a great start of an early evening tour (and they'll no doubt fall asleep on the bus ride home...those resort buses are magical like that once it's dark out. :-)  )

    At Epcot, also go in early, but know that The World Showcase does not open until 11 a.m. There is plenty to do in Future World, so spend your morning there, making your way around The World after 11. This is an enormous park, so the idea of two strollers or a double stroller is perfect. Whether renting strollers or bringing your own, decide how you usually tour any public area together before deciding on 2 singles or a double stroller. I found great, sturdy umbrella strollers with removable plastic coverings (in case of rain) and got a set of clips which latched the two together (one just above the wheel, another just below the handle). For us, this was the perfect solution, so if one parent headed to the bathroom or to pick up a snack, the other parent could handle two strollers. If one parent needed to take one child to the bathroom, or to the Baby Care Center, 2 clicks and we were independent. (If this sounds like the way you "roll," go for two strollers; they are also easier to scoot through crowds and narrow aisles in shops.)
