    Disney in May, do I need a double?

    We will be in Disney for 4 days in May. Dd will be 6 and weighs 55 pounds, Ds2 will be turning 2 while we are there. Dd has over pronation and her legs and feet tire easily. She has done all day at Six Flags but not multiple days in a row. I have a sit and stand but I'm afraid Ds2 wont be comfortable in it all day long. I was thinking maybe rent a City Elite double...idk. What should I do?

    I definitely would want a double. Even bigger kids with no issues tend to want a break now and then when doing several days at a theme park, and you can carry stuff in it the rest of the time.

    Re: Disney in May, do I need a double?

    you need a double. I would do a true double, that way the kids can rest comfortably. I brought my own because it was nice to have in the airport (if you're flying) but some people don't want to risk damaging their own stroller on the plane. You could also watch craigslist for a used double, then sell it after your trip. At 55lbs and 2 years you could do a double maclaren, or a double jogger, its all personal preference, but the jogger will be easier to push over some of the textured walkways at Disney, especially fully loaded

    YES! If you're paying all that money for a Disney vacation, you need to spend that extra $ so you can enjoy it without a 6yo on your back!! My 5yo rode on the buggy board most of the time, but when we were there late she got in the stroller too (and I put 1yo on my back -- she was barely 20lbs so no big deal).

    If you are talking about DisneyWorld in FL, I recommend Kingdom Strollers. It was super easy and decently priced. They deliver to your hotel or resort, have parent cupholders, rain covers, and cooler bags all included with the rental. We used them for a BJCE double for our then 4 year old twins and I was quite impressed with how clean they keep their stuff. Have a great trip!

    Thanks!! I think we will definately rent a BJCE, it seems to have the most room and Dd is big. I think the sit and stand would turn into a nightmare. We do have a Volo for Dd but when she is not in it I dont want to have to worry about dragging 2 strollers around. We will be driving down (I dont fly)
