Do you mean the B-Ready? I don't think the B-Agile has a second seat, unless you buy the double...

Definitely the city mini for us. It reclines all the way back so the kids can nap comfortably. We rent from apple strollers when going to WDW.

You're right. I was thinking of the B-Ready.

Yes, now that is a neat stroller. I was upset that it's completely out of our price range.

Watch for sales! Right now you can get it on amazon for $369 I think. Major steal. I definitely didn't get that price!

I have one and bought it for my 9month old (at the time) when we found out I was pregnant with #2. I love this thing.

Yes it's a bit heavy and bulkier but its meant to double. and with two kids as close as mine will be a double is needed.

I have a maclaren quest by wanted something more substantial. After taking the quest to Disneyland last year I decided it wasn't the best stroller for my needs. It's great for other things though.

I'm taking the b ready yo Disneyland next month ( my daughter will be 16 months and ill be 30 weeks pregnant!) and am a bit nervous because its expensive and on the big side. But I plan on using a lock on the wheels when I park it (to lock it to itself not to something)

But I love the push, the high seat, the huge canopy (a must in az) and the storage basket. I figured if people can manage a double wide stroller in the parks I can manage this one!

I just rented a City Mini Double on applestrollers.com for a total of $6/day. What a steal! We had planned to haul our umbrella stroller onto our flight (and were dreading it) and then buy another cheap one when we got to WDW, but this solves both of those issues for twenty-four bucks! Woot!

Do you take a single or double Bob? We're planning on taking ours for our trip in May, but a little concerned about getting it on/off the buses, etc while wrangling two two year olds!

This is what we'll be taking, too. I got a killer deal on one at Target a few months ago.

In the past, we've used a Graco Metrolite and been very happy with it. We also have a Graco Ready2Grow sit and stand stroller but it won't fit in our Prius and I think we'll be fine with a single stroller between the two kids.

I did not spend money to buy a special stroller. I used my normal Graco stroller and it worked just fine. I was used to it and so was my daughter.

We have an UppaBaby Vista at home and an UppaBaby G-Luxe for travel. When we were searching for an umbrella stroller for travelling we wanted something light, with a reclinable seat and leg rest and a large canopy and it had to corner really well. The G-Luxe and MacLaren Quest were the only ones that fit those criteria for us. The price difference and light weight of the G-Luxe won us over. Everyone who pushes DD in the G-Luxe is amazed at how well it turns and handles for an umbrella stroller.

I plan to use my Chicco Cortina stroller that came with my travel system. It's a little bulky, but my LO is used to it. I must be missing something (ignorance is bliss?), but I don't feel the need to upgrade just for WDW.

I loved the Cortina (we have the travel system, too), but our son outgrew it. The seat is pretty narrow around the shoulder area, IMO, and he was starting to look squished. That's when I went on the hunt for The Perfect Stroller (which unfortunately doesn't exist).

We have the same issue with our Cortina, and my DD is a tiny, petite little thing. We are going to have to start using our jogging stroller exclusively, or purchase an umbrella stroller, which oddly have more shoulder room.

Ah, I could see that. My kiddo might have the same problem eventually.
