Hi!! I was looking for some suggestions about what kind of stroller to bring with us to Disney. We will be staying at the Contemporary.
I was initially going to bring our umbrella stroller that has a canopy, but does not recline. It's easier to deal with on the buses and monorail, but you can't put anything in or on it or it will tip.
I also have a stroller/carriage that I could bring. It has a place to hold items, reclines, canopy, everything we will need to make my son comfortable. But it's bulkier and heavier than the umbrella.
How would it be with the larger carriage on the buses to MGM, AK, and DD? I don't think it would be a big deal on the monorail, plus we may be walking to MK instead. Any suggestions welcome [img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img] )
We have travelled to Disney 3 times with my son and found that taking the umbrella stroller is the way to go. It may not recline but it is much easier to get on the buses. The monorail can be a problem with a large stroller, too. On the buses, depending on when you are riding, sometimes room is a problem so this means that a smaller stroller is a better idea. There are a lot of times when we are exiting the parks that there is no way we would have made it through crowds with anything bigger than what we had. I don't know how the people with the rentals do it!
We are travelling with my 9 month old son this time and I have found a reclining umbrella stroller. It is slightly more expensive (by about $10.00) than what I usually buy but I think for the canopy and the reclining it would be worth it. If you are interested in knowing where I found this, let me know. Hope this helps... [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
We brought our own full size strollers, more for the storage underneath than for the comfort thing. We had no problems with them on the bus. You can wheel it right on the monorail, no need to fold it up! I would say go with the bigger one!
We have taken stollers 3 times to WDW. Twice we took our double and although it was a little heavier, we had no problems with it. The back seat reclined for the baby and the front was just a strap seat for the toddler. Now we just have a two(almost 3)yo, and last year we found a stoller we really like. It is a little bigger than an umbrella, but folds easily has a canopy,storage, and a drink tray. We found it on sale last year for about $25. You can't beat taking your own stroller. Whatever you decide, we feel it is worth the hassle.

<font size="2" face="Comic Sans MS, Arial">That sounds like a good price for a stoller like that. After taking in all the great info and suggestions, I am leaning more towards the bigger stroller. Yes, it will be an inconvenience getting on the buses, but it sounds like I will definately appreciate having it in the parks [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Brought our own strollers to the "World" last two times we went. One year, only had one little one with us, had reclining stroller a little bit bigger than umbrella stroller. Was no problem getting it on anything. The next year, we had two in stollers. Brought umbrella stroller and the other stroller. Found that umbrella was easier to collapse, but couldn't carry anything else other than child in it. On the other hand, trying to catch the bus in a hurry proved to be interesting with the bigger one. I guess there are pros and cons to both, but I liked the convenience of having room to store things in the parks. Next trip (Nov. 2002) I'm going to be daring and bring my double stroller, one seat behind the other, not next to. I hope it works because it's the only thing my 6 year old can fit in, besides a rental.
