    Anyone have thoughts on double strollers? My kids are 2 & 4 yo, so it doesn't need to acommodate an infant.

    Thank you!

    Hi dianag!

    My kid are the same ages as yours! :cool1:

    Do you have any doubles strollers that would be a possibility to bring?

    If not and you're looking into renting I highly recommend MagicStrollers.com. We used them on our trip last month and LOVED :love: the baby jogger citi mini! They deliver (and pick up) directly to your hotel it comes in a study storage bag (which promptly went into a dresser drawer in our room). The stroller comes with a parent organizer and a rain cover upon request (I would request, it can also be used to cut the wind if it's cold). The stroller folds up so easily that hubby began to think it was his brilliant idea to rent the awesome stroller. The pushes well, turns easily (even with the 2 different weights I found it handled well), has full recline, great sunshades, generous storage for a such a lightweight stroller. And the price versus renting in the parks can't be beat! We will rent from them from now on.

    HTH! :wizard:

    We bought a Chicco Trevi Double and LOVED it. It folded like an umbrella stroller and was easy to get on and off the bus! My DD is 5 and my DS is 21 months.

    City Mini Double stroller. Gotta love the fold, sun shade and steering!

    Baby jogger city mini is by far the best!!! Also reclines fully for napping.

    For Disney, a double umbrella that easily folds is key!!

    I have the Jeep Double Umbrella that I got at a resale store for $40 last year. It did great. I took off the shades since they seem to get in the way for folding.

    Very compact. One hand fold - it was just perfect!!

    Another vote for Baby Jogger City Mini. We have a single at home and rented a double for our trip - best decision we made. The kids both loved it. Great sun shade, storage, reclining seat, easy to push...

    If you're considering renting, I highly recommend Magic Stroller. They come with a parent organizer and rain cover - both must-haves in my opinion!

    Look into the Maclaren Twin Triumph. It folds nicely and isn't too heavy. Mac's also swivel like a dream! But for home use, we love, love, love the Bob double. Can go over anything with that baby, and it's a super smooth ride.

    just a follow up that we ended up taking a Combi double stroller with us, and it worked great for Disney. Folded up easily and compactly for the buses, lightweight, fits through most doorways (awesome), steers well. Both kids were happy with it (ages 2 & 4), and it has plenty of sunshade. Also reclines flat if you have a younger baby. I did see tons of folks with the city mini, which also looks great, but I haven't had a test drive in person.

    I love our Baby Jogger City Double. We have the regular City Series, not the mini and I love it.
    It pushes SO easy and the kids are comfy. We had a Maclaren Twin Techno before and I couldn't stand it and they kids always complained that they were uncomfortable.

    Our Jeep Double has been to Disneyworld 3 times and Disneyland once. It's awesome! Super lightweight, compact, easy to fold and unfold.

    Is yours the City Classic??

    I just bought a City Classic for my 2 little ones a few months ago and LOVE it. The thing drives like a dream and has a ton of storage space. I also love how easily it folds up and the fact that the sunshades are gigantic so if they are napping I can fold them down and they are pretty much blocked out completely.
