    Quick Help w/City Mini

    We leave for Disney sunday. Should I get the belly bar or tray? I'm hoping to just throw Reese in without having to buckle her {not best practice, I know}. Does it fold better/easier/smaller with one than the other? Anyone have pics? I'll need to order from Amazon asap.

    Looks like the tray is a lot less. How is it??

    You don't really need anything. If you just want something sitting their to block your child use the tray. Have fun in Disney.

    We have the tray. I always take it off before folding. It takes two seconds to remove. The tray is very high on the stroller so it won't prevent a little kid from escaping or a baby from sliding out.

    Really? I was thinking something she could just kinda hold on to when sitting upright {since the seat doesn't sit straight}.

    I don't really need it to keep her from escaping, just from leaning too far forward.

    Is the b-agile tray any better? We could take it instead, but I'd be sad if anything happened to it.

    I've never taken the tray off. It folds the same with it or without it. The only difference is that once it's folded, the tray takes up a little more room, but that would only matter in a very tight storage situation or something. It does just fine on Disney buses

    As for using it to keep a child contained...my 28-month-old can easily get out from under it if he wants to, but I doubt he'd slip out accidentally. I buckle him, though.

    Re: Not sitting up straight. I put a couple pieces of thick cardboard taped together in the back of the seat (I have a Micro, I believe the mini also has a pocket for this). It definitely helps them sit more upright. You can buy a specific board that BJ sells to do the same thing, or I've read people have used small plastic cutting boards. But cardboard was the cheapest hack so I went with that.
