    Carly Asked

    Trying to plan for our WDW trip next month with a 2yo and a 5mo. What would be the better stroller, a double jogger or a double umbrella? Thanks!

    Hi there, Carly!

    What a wonderful dilemma - as they all are, when planning a trip to Walt Disney World!

    There are advantages to each one, and it will just boil down to your personal comfort.

    While the jogger offers loads of space for the little ones, it s definitely a challenge to maneuver in some of the shops and on crowded sidewalks.

    The umbrella stroller, of course, is much more lightweight and "graceful", while perhaps not offering the "limousine experience" for the little ones.

    All tings being equal, I would look at your needs. How much basket space will you need versus how much does each stroller provide/ Does one offer cupholders? Does the jogger have a single handlebar or two hook-shaped handles? The individual handles become very nice hangers for handle-bags full of souvenirs.

    My recommendation is to go with the stroller that best suits your comfort level. While I can't make the choice for you, I'd urge you to really look at the umbrella stroller; joggers can be pretty heavy - and when you add in the five-year-old, you might find yourself doing lots of extra pushing.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
