    We will be travelling 11/29-12/5 with boys 7, twins 2.5. We're torn on whether to bring our double Bob stroller or 2 umbrellas. The Bob is WAY more cumbersome, but they're less likely to sleep in the umbrellas. Staying at POR. Any advice is appreciated.

    Hi Bernice - This is one of those questions where everyone seems to have a different opinion.  I usually bring a double umbrella stroller for my kids, but since it seems that you have either a double BOB or two separate umbrellas, I think it depends on how easy it is to fold/unfold the strollers.  Since you are staying at Port Orleans, you'll need to take a bus to and from the parks, and you'll need to fold/unfold each stroller when you get on and off the bus.

    I think I'd probably suggest the umbrellas if they are easy to fold.  Keep in mind that you'll need to store the stroller(s) in your room, and with five people in a room, you won't have lots of excess room for a cumbersome stroller.  As for naps, I usually recommend that families go back to their rooms for a brief nap/rest time.

    I hope that helps!
