Question ? Need advice for August trip !

We haven't been to Disney in 5 years so I feel totally lost. Planning in staying 3 nights at the POP Mon, Tues, Wed 8/3- 8/6. Planning on MK, Epcot & Studios. I saw the hours & they are amazing so not worried about that. But any days I should pick to go any particular park. Also how much to rent a double stroller (I am cringing but really feel it wil make for a more relaxing trip for the family) It was a godsend for SW for DS 6. How are the crowds, any time stretegy ? Really do not want to do comando b/c I want everyone to have fun with no go go go & DS really wants to hit the pools at the POP. I know the heat will be bad so I'm planning on buying ahead the mister fans & ponchos for rain. Any suggestions on recent changes or anything will be really appreciated ! I am so excited that I can put this together for the family !!

If it were me, I'd go to MK first because it's the most exciting park for little ones with many rides geared towards children, seeing the castle, toontown, etc. DHS on Tuesday because that is the only night Fantasmic is showing during your 3 days (get there early for FPs to TSM) & Epcot last (again get there early for FPs to Soarin'), to me it's a more relaxing pace for the last day. It is a busy time of year so I would plan on getting to all the parks as early as possible, head back to the resort for a rest/swim & head back to the parks for spectro, wishes, fantasmic & illuminations.

Cost of a double stroller: $31.00 per day/$27 multi day.

My suggestion is to join Tour Guide Mike, he has the best days at the park, how to tour the park. There is also an August Vacation Club (I am a member) and you can talk with people who are going the same time as you, I find this invaluable. It only costs $16 and after all the money you are plunking down it is a drop in the bucket. JMHO- Queenie
