Good idea! I've got an idea and going to work on it this afternoon for the siggy suggestion. Thanks!

Plus if someone could, I work day shift and can't be here during the day. Since they haven't got us in the stroller swap sticky thread (I've pm'd twice) I really could use some help keeping this thread on page one. A friendly bump or chatter would be soooo appreciated.

Also, if any one is going soon that has older child (age 6 and up) would you mind us having a picture of your children using the stroller. I've had quite a few asking if an older child fits comfortably in the stroller. Especially with a sibling.

Thanks!

We used stroller #1 last week for a 6 year old and a 3 year old. They both fit fine and they even managed to fall asleep in the stroller when they needed to. Here are a couple of things I discovered:

Some of the gates at the MK aren't wide enough to roll this stroller through easily. Look for the wider gates, or have the kids walk through so you can tip or fold the stroller to get it through.

The stroller doesn't have an official rain cover, but a dollar store poncho and some clothespins do the trick nicely to cover it if necessary. We left a poncho in the pocket of the #1 stroller, but you might want to bring some kind of clips (we actually used little caribiners that I keep in my diaper bag).

I have pictures of the kids in the stroller. Let me get them organized and I'll post.

Labdogs...THANKS!

when it came to the rain, that is what I did....used a poncho. My DD loved it because I fashioned it so her face was sticking out the hole and she could still see everything yet stayed nice and dry.

I'm so glad the stroller worked well for you and can't wait to read a trip report

Sigh...I could only wish

Regarding swap #1

We decided with the new discount code to upgrade we are now staying @ AKL. Heres hoping the stroller stays in decent enough shape to make it to May.

Sorry if this question is silly, but I just need to know! If there is no one right after me in the swap does that mean I return it to the home base. never mind found it I was wondering though if it would be smarter to take stroller 4, I guess it would depend on when monymony3471 was leaving, morning or evening.

Princesslily...that totally is up to you. If you would like me to move you, I most certainly will. I think monymony is leaving sometime on the 19th, so you could meet with her for a face to face swap. Fraser is arriving on the the 26th so again it is possible to do a face to face. Just let me know if that would work better for you

We'll see if I get around to doing a trip report -- I'd love to, but I always seem to forget! I'll let you know if I do one!

I WILL be doing a scrapbook of this trip, too. I'll post links to that when it is finished for sure! Glad you liked the book. You can make a really nice book with the basic templates on Shutterfly. That's how I did my first Disney digital book. It is super easy and the results are beautiful. You don't need any special software to do one of those!

Me!

Instead of a simple bump, I thought I'd make a shameless plea for all of you to come & read my planning pre-trippie which is in my siggie. It has Yellowstone pics, a TR of our 3 day girl's (Deluxe Dining!) trip & all the planning of my upcoming trip. In the next few days I'll be adding photos of our 2nd Mickey tye-dying which I just took tonight & of my sister's stroller with big kids in it (it's very similar to these strollers, it's an In-Step double) and my final 2 weeks of lists & prep, etc.

I would love friends! I'm feeling lonely. I may have started it too early, I just was so excited when we first came up with our plans that I started it in February for a November trip!

Stroller #3 is offically lost. We arrived today and went to ASMo to pick it up. EnchantedMama did not use it during her stay so it was supposed to still be in left luggage under her name. Well since it stayed longer than 10 days it was disposed of.

Ok...I will say this...You should make and sale those beautiful cakes. That almone would finance your Disney trips.

Ohio, huh? ME TOO! Don't you love this early cold weather? I so wanna be you and leave for sunny Florida!

Love the report--tho I don't totally agree with your thinking about Ohio being a great place to live. I'm cold right now and Florida sounds better!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Did they actually say it was disposed of?? Did she leave it for you there or who left it there? I'm going to call but I want to make sure I'm calling the right resort since the person BEFORE enchantedmama isn't on my list.
