Double would definitely be easier. We've rented from magic strollers and kingdom strollers. Had a great experience both times. They fold up very easily. Good luck deciding!

We took 2 umbrella strollers when our youngest two were 2 and 5 at the time. Definitely easier to navigate and less cumbersome for using Disney bus transportation to and from the parks. It was also great because we could split up and do different things depending on who was cranky, who was napping, who needed the potty, etc. Just make sure DH knows how to fold up and unfold the strollers! LOL! I say this because mine wasn't familiar with them and the first few tries he was getting frustrated with it - but once he got the hang of it, everything worked out beautifully.

There was a company that was doing free rental of city mini strollers just pay insurance, but I can't remember the name and I cant search right now people were speaking highly of them but I'm not sure the promotion is still going on Maybe someone else knows the name.

Oh and I would go with a double myself its hard enough to walk as a family without trying to push two strollers.

Why not do both?

If you know what two singles you are bringing or renting, the connectors are pretty cheap.

Although, the 6 yr old should be able to walk at least part of the day. So if you get a double, as previous posters have said, have the older DD walk.

I would take one single stroller for the younger one and they could take turns if the older in needed to sit occasionally. I really disliked taking my big double stroller in the buses when the kids were 1 and 3. When they were 3 and 5 I took two MacLaren Volo strollers and that worked good. Didn't take strollers after they were both over 5.

If u use the connectors do u use the same type if umbrella stroller or different? We r thinking of 2 umbrellas with the connectors. Mainly so we can break up if needed, maneuver in stores easily but want to use connectors so when we park them we will b looking for only one stroller instead of two
