LOL... It is actually about the same size as most folding strollers... So, the size isn't really the issue. I also don't intend to drive over anyone.

Btw, what does TDBIASWS mean? Doesn't seem to be a usual dis abbreviation.
As I mentioned, we've travelled alot with this stroller and gotten in and out of many cabs in NYC, vans in Nassau, and all around various city subway systems. Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I used a "mommy hook" to secure the second seat to the base -- can you use something similar on the bug so that both hands hold the base?

Just make sure you start getting the stroller ready to fold BEFORE the bus arrives. It will save a lot of time - and stares
Great. This is sounds like what we usually do. I have the mommy hook and we will only be going to 2 parks, for 2 days... So, I'm still undecided so I'm going to think on it still alittle more.

Thanks all!

That poster adds it to almost every post without explaining.

I can't speak much for the parks, since DS will be going on his first WDW in a few months, but we have taken him on DCL. I am considering taking our larger stroller to the parks and sticking with a small umbrella for the cruise. Space is at a premium onboard, so I would consider the smallest option for that. We are driving, so it won't be hard to leave one in the car during the cruise - I don't know what your travel plans are, so that may not be possible.

It sounds as if you have plenty of experience handling this stroller. You might want to also give it a go on a crowded bus before you commit to taking it to Disney. Dragging a stroller of any size up the bus steps and then balancing it in the aisle while the bus rounds corners is a big challenge when you've got a little one in your lap (or worse, while you're standing and holding the child in one arm and grabbing a bar for balance with the other). I'm not saying that it's impossible. It will just be easier if you have some practice.

We have done it on a busy city bus a number of times but decided to go pick up a MacLaren's Quest tonite. A little easier because it is only one piece. Thanks for the feedback all!

We have a Quest that I use when I have the baby alone and we love it - good choice! Mac's are great strollers. Have fun!

We have a Stokke Xplory. It's a rather large stroller that doesn't fold compactly and have had no problems traveling with it both on the Disney Cruise and throughout Disney (on buses, boats, etc). My husband usually handles the stroller while I take our DD and any bags we may have. The bus drivers usually ask us to break it down more, but once we explain the stroller they don't ask anymore questions. People have always been accommodating and understanding with us and the big stroller.

Now that DD is almost 3 though, we did go out a buy a City Mini for our Disney trips.

I love my full size UppaBaby for home, but take the G Luxe to Disney. It's comfortable for ds, folds super easy, is light to push around, but what I like most is it's smaller size for navigating through the crowds and shops. I originally had a Maclaren Techno but it didn't fold as easily for me.

I know this is a little OT but just wanted to let anyone with the bagaboo strollers know that there was a recall
