Stroller recommendations needed

I'm going to need to rent a stroller for our next WDW trip, my son has outgrown our old stroller, and I don't want to buy another one at this point. I would love a few recommendations from those who have used a stroller for an older child.
Some background: My son is 7 years old, but small. He's under 48" tall and just under 40lb. He's got some sensory issues and walks on his toes, so he gets fatigued when walking long distances, but can do lots of short bursts so he'll need to be able to easily hop in and out of the stroller as needed. We'll also need the stroller to have a large sunshade/ awning so that he can retreat if he's feeling scared or overwhelmed. Certain sounds or touches freak him out and people looking at him make it worse, so we found it to relieve a lot of stress to use the stroller as a wheelchair for lines when we went last year. The other consideration is that he's a twin, so we've always used a double stroller. My daughter is fine with walking for most of the day, but I like having the option for her to ride, especially after a long day. It also gives us a good place to stash our bag, since we have to carry some medical supplies.
We recently borrowed a BOB double stroller for a day trip and it was great for the kids, but a huge pain to fold and take on a bus. It also took up a ton of space in the car. I have also tried a Maclaren double, and though it folded up smaller than the BOB and fit great in the car, my shoulder complained all day from pushing it. The Maclaren is also on the verge of being too small for the kids, and certainly will be this winter.
Are there double stroller options for older kids that have the features I need? IE: large sunshade, fold easily/compact-ish, comfortable for the kids, easy to push.
