    Jodi from TX Asked

    I have a 5 year old and a 3 year old. I am looking for my best options, stroller wise. I was wondering if anybody has taken a sit and stand stroller, and if that was a good choice. From what I can see, renting a stroller is not a good choice. Please help!!

    Hi there Jodi!

    I have travelled to Disney World with just about every make, model and configuration of stroller that is out there, including a "sit-n-stand."  This option worked well when my kids were approximately your children's ages, and was relatively easy to push.  It was a bit heavy to fold and load onto the buses, but not so cumbersome that I wouldn't recommend it.  One thing to consider is that the model that I had didn't provide much sun protection for my oldest son, and after a long day in the park, he wanted to sit in more of a traditional seat rather than on a bench.

    I'm a bigger fan of side-by-side umbrella-style double strollers.  Both kids are in the "front" and each has a comfortable seat with a canopy.  In addition, they tend to be light weight and fold easily.  If you have used a sit-n-stand at home, and your oldest enjoys it, I would go ahead and bring it to Disney.  If you are considering purchasing a new stroller for your trip, I would "test" drive both models before you decide.

    Have a magical vacation!
