What stroller do YOU use in the parks?

I'm in the market for a new stroller. I'm wondering what you use when you come to WDW? Or at home for that matter...

Thanks!

I have a city mini and love it. I also have a city micro but I don't think they make them anymore. In any case those strolelrs are so easy to push and most of all to fold.

We used the First Years Jet stroller. Lots of lightweight and easy to manoever. Also, had enough room to hold quite a bit.

The city mini is our Disney stroller. We also use it if we will be on bumpy surfaces or out all day. Our normal day to day stroller is a quinny zapp which is nice and tiny/maneuverable.

We used a Maclaren Twin techno when our twins were young. We also used our Peg Perego Pliko last year because it is a single with a step stool on the back so our twins can share. (We also used that when our older two were young).

Both fold easy for the bus, are not too big, and steer well. Both also have great storage underneath. I would think a single Macclaren would also be great if you do not need a seat for two like us!

We use the city elite double it is great a little bigger then the city mini but it is wonderful for the parks. We also use it when we are not at world.

We have 2 Inglesina Trip strollers. They're similar to the Maclaren. They fully recline. They also have a big fat canopy and come with a rain cover. Both come in handy in the crazy FL weather.

We use our Britax B-Agile at Disney, the zoo, etc. It's similar to the City Mini, but slightly better IMO.

We also have a Maclaren Quest that we take on trips to the mall.

I haven't had a stroller for over 5 years so I'm not sure what's out there. I've discovered baby wearing is much easier so I go with that. We rent a stroller when we go to disney, I think it's called a citi mini. Not sure if you can buy them but they're nice. Light and very easy to steer.

We are taking a Chicco Liteway. It is compact and folds easily like an umbrella stroller, but has a decent sized basket underneath, sunshade, and full recline.

I have owned many strollers (it's a problem i have, LOVE them) and think the City Mini is truly the best Disney stroller anyone could use -- best size, great ride, awesome sun shade, good storage, nice full recline for naps, etc.

we rented last time - used a rider board on the back, too ( have 3 boys) -- and this time we're brigning our own (bought it used for less than a rental).

My boys are a little older (4 and 6) now and we rarely use a stroller at home. We have 2 Maclaren Volo strollers for WDW.

We have used our Maclaren Triumph the last 4 times to WDW and love it our dd5 is very tall for her age and we are planning on taking it again next week. Lighweight easy fold up with strap, doesn't have full recline but goes to back just enough for a good nap, nice storage underneath.
