Stroller Question

We are headed to WDW in December with our 3 kids (DD9, DS6 and DS3). Our DS6 was recently diagnosed with Juvenille Arthritis and tires easily. I am concerned that all the walking at Disney maybe too much for him. I am planning to get a double stroller to bring with me (I only have a single right now and I know my 3 year old will need a stroller too).
Can anyone make a recommendation? He weighs about 45 lbs but is 46 inches tall. We will be going back to WDW in the fall of 2013 so I am thinking about buying instead of renting. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you

i dont have a brand recommendation..but...

get a side by side and not a front to back..they are wider but much much shorter and i find easier..

for weight you should be good..but make sure length is ok for his feet...

i'd check craigslist and bring him along...the price is usually awesome..and you'll know how it goes with the kids

I have the single Baby Jogger City Mini and LOVE it. They make a double and from what I hear, everyone LOVES that one too. You may want to look into the Baby Jogger City Mini GT though - I think it holds more weight! Hope that helps!

I used the Citi Elite on my trip in August and loved it. So easy to fold and was plenty large enough for an older child. They also make a double.

In b/t the Citi Mini and the Citi Elite is the Citi Mini GT. Any of the Baby Jogger's get really high marks for durability, construction and ease of use. I can also say they are very easy to push and my daughter was comfortable sitting in it.

Thank you for the advice! I think I am going to look for a used City Double of some kind. I will see what I find on Craigslist.

We bought a Baby Trend Expedition and it was FANTASTIC for this trip!! We have 2 kids with Down Syndrome and they do tire easily. It holds a combined weight of 150lbs and carted my 65lb 10yr old and 43lb 6yr old without a problem.
