    We will have a 3 yro and a 3 month old! I'm torn about the stroller (rent/bring,single /double). We have a snuggli type carrier that either kid can use that I was thinking to bring also, so would just a sgl be enough or should I suck it up & bring the

    Jennifer,

    Have you looked at the stroller rental prices lately - ouch!  $31/day for a double stroller!  Also the DIsney strollers are hard plastic, meant for older children.  You couldn't really put your 3-month-old in one.

    I would definitely bring from home, and I'd bring the double.  There is a LOT of walking involved in a Disney vacation - 10 miles a day is not unusual for us.  It would be very difficult to carry the baby all day, not to mention very hot (for both of you). 

    We have three small children and we take both a double and a single stroller with us.  It's not always the most convenient things to do, but let's face it.  Of all the wonderful things we get from our kids, easy and convenient lives aren't exactly topping that list!

    It's not hard to bring your own stroller, I promise, and I really believe you'll be glad you did.  Beyond the financial savings, you'll have use of your own stroller at your resort, which you don't get with the double.  When you leave that rental at the gate, there's still a lot of walking to be done, and that can be very difficult - especially at night, with tired little ones.
