    We are taking our 12 yo and 6 mo old . Are the strollers suitable for infants to nap in ? also we are staying in animal kingdom is there transportation available easily for getting back to resort and other parks ? any tips for infants would be appreciated

    Angela,

    I strongly suggest that you bring your own stroller, or make arrangements to rent a stroller off site.  The strollers available for rental on Disney property are not suitable for an infant, do not recline, and would not be very comfortable for a nap.  They are hard plastic, not a cushioned seat like traditional strollers.  (For a visual, check out www.allears.net and search 'strollers'.  The first search result has detailed information and photos of the strollers available for rent in the parks.)

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a fantastic resort!  There will be bus service from the resort to all of the theme parks and Downtown Disney.  Allow yourself a little extra time when using the buses and you should be just fine.  If you are really in a pinch, taxis are also readily available at the resort and parks.

    You don't mention what time of year you are visiting, but if it's in hot weather I recommend a battery powered clip on fan to keep your little one cool in the stroller.  A rain cover is also very nice for keeping the stroller dry.  And when my girls were little, I liked to pack their clothes in ziploc bags.  I'd place one outfit in each, which helped to keep the suitcase organized, made it easier for my husband to grab a bag and dress the kids, and also gave me a nice storage spot for wet/dirty clothes later in the day.  It's also very easy to grab a bag of spare clothes and toss in the stroller for your day in the parks.

    Hope that helps!
