Mom With Kids After Run

    I am traveling to WDW with two Kids; a 3 yr old and a *almost* 2 yr old. Which would be easier in the park, as well as more comfortable for the kids: a double tandem stroller or 2 single strollers? Dont know what to bring on the plane on the flight down!

    Hi Samantha! Stroller decisions really end up being a personal choice for you. The large double tandem strollers can be cumbersome especially if they are side by side. The parks can be crowded and these semi type strollers take up a lot of room as you are walking through busy sections. I have also seen many families struggle to get them folded up enough to satisfy the bus regulations. All strollers must be folded to the maximum on all Disney buses and some Disney boat transportation. Sometimes families use the stroller more for a catch all and then when its time to fold them up they really struggle to get everything out of them including the children.

    The issue with two single strollers is the same...they must be folded for transportation. Plus keeping track of two is going to be harder then one. When riding attractions you must leave them in the stroller parking area and sometimes the attendants move them around while you are on the ride to make room for more. When you start hunting for one you will likely find the other in a different location so that takes extra time. Of course not matter what you bring remember to mark it well with ribbons, balloons, scarves, or something similar.

    The best answer to you is for you to decide if you would rather handle one stroller when trying to fold them or if its easier for you to handle two smaller ones.  I would likely say it might be easier to handle one but I don't know the type of strollers you might be bringing.
