Hey Guys - My family will be going on our first vacation to DL on June 2. I grew up in LA and have been dozens of times but this will be my first trip as a father. I have 2 young sons that will share a double stroller. We bought it especially for this trip but have been using it since we bought it for every day activities. It's a side by side jogging stroller with 3 wheels. It is quite wide at 32.25 inches across. Is this too wide for the park? Will we have issues getting in? I'm not too concerned with any crowds as we are going at the very beginning of busy season. Plus, it is very maneuverable. I'm just concerned with whether or not it's too wide.

Doesn't sound too bad to me. I am taking my new double. It is about 30" wide. I would just recommend leaving it outside when you go into stores. :thumbsup2

I kinda figured it would be too wide for stores. My concern is with the turn styles/entry ways. I know that they have guidelines in place about sizing, but they also have to accommodate motorized wheelchairs. Some of those are much bigger than my stroller.

Thanks for the reply!

I saw some real massive ones a mont back so I'm sure you'll be fine. Just make sure when you go to the park to go through the gate on the far right, by the stroller rentals. And as OP suggested, don't venture into stores haha. Have a wonderful time!

We have a double stroller like you're describing and you'll be fine with it. There will be some limitations as to where you can go with it such as through some doorways but for the most part you'll be fine. You'll be able to go through stores but of course some isles may be tighter than others and you won't be able to walk down some because of the layout and how narrow some of the isles are. As far as walking with crowds, we went a couple of years ago when DLR and DCA reached capacity and they actually stopped selling tickets and it was basically one out, one in policy. You can imagine how crowded it must have been with that policy in effect and we had the double stroller. When it starts getting that crowded, there really isn't much you can do when walking through the crowds except to be patient and respectful of everybody's space as much as possible. We didn't bump our stroller into anybody but of course when using a double stroller, if you start getting stuck in walking traffic, it's not like you can just pick up a double stroller with 2 kids and step aside so basically, you'll have to rely on people realizing this and they need to move aside. ;)

I went to DL several times with my twin daughters and found that two strollers worked so much better than a twin stroller. After the first time with the double, we never used it for DL again. JMHO

I agree with nannyz. Single strollers work so much better and allow you to move about more freely. Also, you don't take up so much room across for people near you to get around etc. It can be very frustrating for others when behind these huge strollers.
Anyway, highly recommend the singles for your's and everyone else's comfort.

You should fit through the gates just fine. :goodvibes

This may be the case if you just have the 2, but we found 2 strollers plus 2 walking kids waaaay too cumbersome. A double allowed one parent to take the big kids on a ride while the other parent could take the 2 little ones elsewhere. Our double broke in the parks one trip and forced us to use 2 singles and I have to say NEVER AGAIN!

OP, we had a similar stroller and never had a problems with DL's gates. DCA's gates used to be too narrow and we were directed through the large side gates to enter, but the new DCA gates are wide enough.

Thank you everyone for the tips! I really appreciate it!

To the couple folks that recommended I just get 2 single strollers: Doesn't that kind of defeat the whole reason I purchased a double stroller in the first place? I bought it solely for our trip to SoCal this Summer. We didn't pay $300 to leave it at the hotel and rent 2 singles!

We use it practically every day for errands and it comes in real handy. I just never took into consideration whether or not DL could accommodate their size. It was only after I read a few different message boards that I realized DL has regulations on this.

I had read that they use a box similar to some airlines that your stroller has to fit in or else they won't let it on the trams. We are staying right across the street so I wasn't worried about that. Then I wondered if the entryways to the park itself would be an issue.

That's when I created an account on this site JUST to ask that question! I have since read a few other threads about different topics that I'm now very glad that I joined!

Thank you all for "recruiting" me and thanks again for the responses! You've been most helpful!:thumbsup2

The Disboards are a wealth of information!! Just to put my two cents in we were there two weeks ago with our 5 girls and double jogger. We fit just fine in both parks in through the gates! :goodvibes Be careful of the tracks on Main street though our front wheel got stuck in it and we had to lift it out. Just something to help you navigate through the busy streets! LOL!

We got a used city mini double last summer and will cram our kids in this until they are to big to fit ;) We had a double peg pergo but the frame got bent on one of our trips probably airport.

We love it and its easier to push our kids 4 and 5.5. I appreciate the idea of two single strollers but the one allows us to take drinks and snacks with the bottom carriage.

As with anywhere now a days....large crowds require lots of patients so we just go with the flow.

We are the grandparents that visit DLR without the kids and grandkids :hippie:
Been there, done that and pass the baton down to families like yours. We love not having to deal with the kids/grands on our trips.

We just had fun in the parks the first week of May and found that the double strollers were NOT a problem at all. There are several areas that are designated as stroller parking in very stragic areas. You can park and visit several attractions, resturants or stores in the surrounding areas go back and get the stroller and move on to the next area you wish to visit.

We never had problems with families running us over with their stroller or bumping into us, no rudness at all. Main street can get pretty busy at times with all the people and strollers but if you move out to the street instead of the sidewalk it is easier to get around.

DH made a comment on more than one occasion on seeing a kiddo passed out in the stroller that he thought that was a great idea, little one taking a nap and mom and dad still get to enjoy the park.

There is a gate between the turnstiles that they open to let the stroller through. We did not see anyone turned away because the stroller was too big in the 8 days we were there.

Take the stroller and enjoy the parks with you boys, they grow up way to fast :love:

My personal experience is that the park is too small for the side by side double strollers. On our trip in April there were kids in a fright as they were being pushed through the moving traffic of people trying to get by. At some points, when the crowds are gathering for the parade, the area that pedestrians are moving is barely the width of the double strollers turning the area into single file in one direction, directed by the double wide rather then people able to move back and forth. Many parents do well with one in a stroller, one carried walking or in a backpack or front pack.

At 32", that is only about 6" wider than a standard wheelchair. So, it really isn't that big. Pushing any type of stroller takes patience in a crowd, because people try to shove around you. It is the same with a wheelchair or an ECV. Doesn't really make a difference if it is a single or a double. At least with a double you can take turns pushing. :thumbsup2

Totally disagree! Two strollers is twice as much trouble. Only thing worse than walking behind one person with one big stroller is walking behind two people with two strollers who are trying to stay together. As for those who are trying to rush around the stroller and/or family, their hurry and rush does not become the stroller pushers problem. Your poor planning or high excitability doesn't make an emergency for me. Personally, I've never had an issue getting around at DL even with double strollers, huge wheelchairs, ECVs or anything else, except when I've been in too big of a rush and moved when I shouldn't have. That is MY fault, not theirs.

:thumbsup2 That is what it all comes down to, isn't it?!

Sometimes with seemingly no thought at all to their own physical well being. I also love those that race and shove to get past and then STOP right in front of you and have the nerve to give you the dirty look because they stopped, or even turned around, right in front of me. I know you have to stop sometimes (to look at a map, get your bearing, take a call, whatever!) but you can't do that right in the middle of walkway.

I just had another thought to share on strollers.
I would not use a small umbrella stroller with a very young child or a baby. They will get practically smothered by people around them.
We use bigger strollers that have side protection.

Yes, I'd skip the umbrella type strollers at DL. It is too long of a day not to have any real support.

We used our double jogging stroller quite successfully at DLR for quite a few trips. It's only the last trip or so that we've stopped using it because our boys are big and don't need it anymore.

I love the double because it made it convenient to keep both of our younger boys together and it kept them from wandering off. We could also move through areas of the park more quickly. We frequently parked it in a "land" and did everything we wanted to in that land and then moved on.

We also never had any trouble on the trams. Getting on them was usually slower than for people w/out a stroller because they have definite stroller areas on the tram and you have to fold them up.

We used to have to go through the flood gates at DCA before they changed the gates. Now the regular gates are wide enough to go through with a double stroller.

We rarely took our stroller into stores because they are usually crowded and maneuvering that crazy stroller through a store was a pain.

Our stroller could fully recline and when our youngest was 2 he passed out in the stroller for 4 hours on our first trip. It was a lifesaver for him and for us. He would have been miserable if he hadn't had a safe place to sleep. And our then 4 yr old could get in and out without bothering his brother.

Take the stroller and enjoy your time with your family. As another poster said, they grow up too fast. :confused3

Thanks everyone for the posts, DH and I have had the same debate - double vs. 2 singles. Our DCs will be 1 and 3 on our trip and both nap well in the stroller. Its not an option to not have a stroller for each kid at those ages. I think another benefit of a double is that only one parent needs to push at a time, so you can trade off doing single rider rides, child swap, running for Fast Passes, etc. More fun and flexibility for the whole family.

For those saying that one child can walk, well, you've never been stuck walking next to or behind a 3 year old. Even at his least tired he would totally slow down the crowd flow dramatically, never mind probably getting trampled. And I'm all for babywearing, do it all the time, but its really not realistic to wear a 1 year old for 10-12 hours in warm weather. In terms of the space a double takes up in the crowd, a double stroller is narrower than two singles. So if a family trying to stay together they will be taking up less space with one stroller than two.

I like to think of Disney as a kid-oriented and family friendly place that accommodates and welcomes the needs of little ones and their families. I keep seeing anti-stroller sounding posts on here and that totally surprises me. I get that people are in a hurry, I'm guilty myself sometimes, but really? I kind of feel like Disney is the one place in society where kids should get the right of way. :confused3

Thank you! This is exactly how I feel! Some of the replies I got to the original question sounded borderline anti-kid. I'm just waiting for someone to ask me to leave my kids at home because that would be better for the other visitors to the park!

The fact that I will be using a double stroller doesn't change the fact that no matter how you slice it, DL is always packed. There isn't any day where there isn't a crowd. Nothing is going to change the fact that there will always be people in a hurry, huge tour groups moving slowly, kids that are tethered (hate that) to their parents, or even massively obese people slowing things down. That's the chance you have to take whenever you go to crowded places. I accept that.

If my double stroller is REALLY going to ruin someone else's day, then that person has other issues that they may need professional help with.

I asked a simple question and to those of you who replied to that: I thank you again.

To the (frankly) selfish people that have a hard time "walking around people with strollers": I'm sorry. This trip isn't for me. It's for my 4 kids. This is all about their enjoyment and if my babies are most comfortable in their double stroller, so be it. That's what we are going to use.

Yeah, I was actually really shocked at a couple threads I saw in the past weeks complaining about stroller parking and double strollers. To the point that I started to question the vibe on this board. The anti-kid feeling made me really uncomfortable. Our Disney trip is for our kids primarily and I always thought of Disney as a kid destination as much as (or really more than) an adult place. Keeping the kids safe and comfortable is a priority to make it a Magical trip.

I agree that any place that is crowded can get annoying and discourteous people (strollers or not) will slow down crowds. Its just a fact of going out in public. I like to think I'm a pretty expedient stroller pusher - one of the reasons I have a smooth pushing all terrain stroller is that it can move faster than some of the lesser models. So hopefully my family and our big stroller will not be taking away from anyone else's Magic at the happiest place on earth.

ETA: Have a great trip! Hope your kids love it and all goes smoothly for you.

Some people are not happy no matter what is happening. Enjoy your days in the park with your kids and try to ignore the grumpy ones.

As I said in a previous post DH and I go without the kids/grands because it is our time to act like kids. :yay: And the grands do go with their parents in the summer.

DH did ask a friend who was complaining about all the kids in DLR if he would go if disney did an adult only day and the friend said that would be no fun. Again you can't make some people happy no matter what ou do.

DH and I like to sit and people watch, as we try to catch our breath to go again, and love to see the look of wonder and magic on the little ones faces.

Enjoy those kids now, next time your blink they will be giving you grands, our youngest is 26.

We just got back from another great trip to Disneyland using our double stroller. I have a Graco Duo Glider that has been on at least 10 trips to Disneyland since December 2008, 1 trip to Disney World, used daily around home and to our local theme parks numerous times (too many to count) and we love having it!! There is no way we could have done our trips with out it. Yes we could have used 2 strollers but it would have made things more difficult when only one parent was left with both kids and wanted to go somewhere, especially on our first trip with it when my DS was 22 months and my DD was 3 months.

Use the double and have a great trip. (Personally I hate the side by sides but you use what works for you!!! Some hate my front to back but it works for me!!)

Enjoy your trip with your kids because I did blink and my oldest is now 5 and I know if I blink again he'll be graduating High School!!!!

I blinked and my oldest is now Married and having a baby! I wish we could go back to 5 year olds.....

DLR is, to me, about making great memories! If you and your family are going to be more comfortable with a double stroller for your kids - take one. If you are going to be better off with 2 singles - take those. If you are going to be happier with no stroller - by all means, leave it at home.

Our trips when the kids were littler were more enjoyable because we took a double jogger. It worked for us. When we have our grand baby :scared1: we'll take them and a stroller, too.

You'll have a great time and cherish those memories with your family forever. :cloud9:

I just got a Graco Duo Glider (used from Craigslist - great deal!) and look forward to using it at DL. We've already gone on several walks and it works really well. I love the tandem set up (I think a side-by-side would drive me nuts!) and that the back seat does a full recline for naps and it's situated in such a way that my DD will be able to see if she's sitting back there (she's 4 and will be walking plenty too, but glad to have the option for both little ones to be in a stroller).

I will admit I love my stroller but I hate the pattern. But when you can get a great deal you don't complain. I paid $75 for a $150 stroller because our pattern was a discontinued pattern and it was brand new.

I also loved the fact that the back seat folded down to a completely reclined position so the baby could sleep. We'd make it into the bassinet and let them do their thing. Half the time if we knew they were going to fall asleep we wouldn't even lock them in so they could be more comfortable. We'd normally put the older one in the front and the baby in the back then that way the older one could check out what was going on and the baby could sleep. But this last trip my DD (3) wanted to be in the back so we'd put my DS (20 months) in the front and he loved getting to check everything out!!!

Have a great time!!! You'll enjoy having the double plus it was nice to have the big area underneath to carry everything you needed!!!

Oh and I see your from the Sac area. We've gone to the train museum up there numerous times too with it and it's worked out great!! Needless to say our stroller goes everywhere we go!!

LOL, I hate the colors of the one I got! :rotfl: But the people I bought it from had only used it a couple times. The thing is brand new and I got it for $80. Function over fashion for sure!

Unless the baby (who will be 11 months when we go in Oct) is sleeping, he'll be in the front since DD4 can see from the back. That's if DD4 is even in the stroller... I know she'll be out walking a lot of the time too. But yeah, that full recline was mandatory in whatever stroller I got so there could be nap time in it.

San Ramon, huh? We used to live in Danville. Love the whole Alamo-Pleasanton valley. :goodvibes

I am not anti kid. I have an 11 month, 9 year and 7 year old. I just don't think it's necessary to bring a double wide stroller to congest the park even more. I like to think I respect others around me. It's the same as the people who think they should bring a stroller for their stuff. Everyone should be courteous of other's around them. That does not mean I am anti kid.

The above statement doesn't change the fact that this is a very selfish opinion to have.

You're comparing me to people who use a stroller just for their stuff? There's no comparison! I can either bring a stroller for EACH kid or I can use a double stroller and actually take up less space overall, plus have less work for each adult. One stroller vs. 2. Simple math. Better yet - we'll forget about the stroller altogether and instead we'll just make the kids walk. All for the sake of the others in the park. But when my kids finally start screaming and crying because they are tired and wore out I will hand them over to you to explain why they couldn't just have a stroller. :sad2:

This is a ridiculous argument to even be having. I asked a simple question - it was answered by those who care. Some people just used this thread as an excuse to sound off on their own selfish opinions. You were one of them.

All I know is that in a little over a week I'm going to be having the time of my life with my wife and our 4 beautiful babies at the HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH! :dance3:

You'll find that a lot when you ask a stroller question. Just listen to the people who actually answer your question and try your best to ignore the others (these stroller threads can get really nasty if you don't).

I really find it funny that anyone would call me selfish when I have 3 kids and take others into account when bringing our stroller. I would never bring a double side by side (not talking about the front and back kind), because I think it's rude to others. How is that me being selfish? We can't all only think about ourselves. There are other people around you and we should all respect that. And I will be enjoying Disney with my husband a 3 babies soon as well.

Anyone else having Deja vu? :rolleyes:

BayGirl22
05-20-2012, 10:20 PM
Yes, it is Deja Vu.
The thing is, that doesn't even make sense. Some tandem (front/back) doubles push like hot dog carts and turn like tractor trailers. That's not good for crowd flow either. And even the double stroller rentals at Disney are side by sides not tandems. So people who choose side by side doubles are automatically rude to others?

I have both a side by side and a tandem double and will be bringing the the side by side, for a variety of reasons that work for my family that I don't need to justify to anyone else. People need to make decisions based one what is going to work best for their given situation. The post was looking for facts on which to base an educated decision.

The problem with these arbitrary opinions and expectations of what others should do with their families is that you'll always end up disappointed. The rest of us will be enjoying our kids comfortably in our side by sides, moving happily along with the crowd.

Function over fashion for sure!

Exactly!!! I agree with this 100%!! Plus I can say I've only seen 2 people with the same pattern as ours. 1st time was in WDW when we were getting on a bus heading back to the Pop Century, they had the same double we had. The second time was in DL and we ran into a girl I went to High School with and she had the single one. The funny thing was she hated the pattern too!!! lol


Unless the baby (who will be 11 months when we go in Oct) is sleeping, he'll be in the front since DD4 can see from the back. That's if DD4 is even in the stroller... I know she'll be out walking a lot of the time too. But yeah, that full recline was mandatory in whatever stroller I got so there could be nap time in it.

That is a huge plus that no matter who is in the back they can see everything. The only times we'd really let our DD walk was when we'd park the stroller and do all the rides in Fantasyland or do the same thing in Toontown. Other wise my DH walks so fast she'd never be able to keep up and she didn't mind she loved being able to sit down and rest her feet.

San Ramon, huh? We used to live in Danville. Love the whole Alamo-Pleasanton valley. :goodvibes

We actually live on the border of Danville- San Ramon. We love the area!! Now to find a way to upgrade from our condo to a house and be able to continue to afford to stay in this area.
