    We will be traveling to WDW May 22-27, we are bring our three year old daughter and 1 year old twins. Will a double jogging stroller fit on the boat? Do we have to remove our kids from the stroller? I can't hold both the twins and a stroller.

    Hi Heather!  Traveling with one toddler can be stressful and I can certainly understand your need to be as prepared as possible when traveling with two additional little ones!

    When taking one of the Walt Disney World busses to go from your resort to a park or Downtown Disney you will need to fold the stroller up and have the kids out of it on your laps or a seat. This is mandated by state law in Florida and many guests argue with drivers and it has nothing to do with them.  It can become a handful trying to get children on the bus as well as your other items and then fold the stroller.  We suggest you get the stroller folded before the bus comes if possible but understand that can't always happen. This is not a guarantee but I have always found that other guests on a bus are more then willing to help with holding a stroller if you need the extra hands. The rides are short and many aren't traveling with young ones and can easily assist those guests who are in need. 

    Some of the boats will allow you to keep your strollers open. Any of the larger boats are fine but the smaller boats that might take you to and from the Magic Kingdom from the resorts in that area will require strollers to be folded.  The boats that go between Hollywood Studios and Epcot will allow open strollers.

    The monorails will also allow open strollers. During busy times they will become crowded but you can still keep them open.

    I hope this helps with the planning.  The only other option I see is if you desire to rent a car and drive to the parks on your own. You can rent cars right on property from the car care center near the Magic Kingdom. They have shuttle service to and from the resorts.  However, parking lot trams also require strollers to be folded. Nothing is easy when traveling with children but once you get there the day will be worth the effort!
