Is everyone's opinion pretty much to NOT use a double stroller in the parks?? I'm thinking 2 smaller umbrella strollers but just wanted to ask here 4 sure since u have all helped me a lot already!
Use whatever stroller is most comfortable for you and your kids. Personally, I'm too tall to push an umbrella stroller and my daughter couldn't recline to sleep...plus there was a huge lack of storage. - Linzee 870.5 #176 12-30-12 9:13PMLike(1)Reply
We have used a double jogging with our 2 girls. It's harder to get through tight crowds, but it's worth it to only have 1 to keep track of. - tikiwhip 205.4 #1801 12-30-12 9:14PMLike(1)Reply
My sister uses the stroller where the older child can sit or stand in the back and the younger one is in the front..not sure what they are called but it worked great for them. Look on Craig's list or one of those sights for cheap used ones if you are just looking to take it to Disneyland and arent going to use it on a regular basis once your trip is over. - yellowtonka 241.4 #1337 12-30-12 10:07PMLike(1)Reply
Honestly, do which ever makes you comfortable throughout the day. If a double stroller is easier for you, I say go for it. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars 970.1 #156 12-30-12 10:07PMLike(1)Reply
Wow thank you everyone!!! U r all awesome! So helpful 4 my upcoming trip! I actually have the sit n stand stroller 4 my kids. My son is 2 and daughter is 6! I want 2 have it 4 my daughter cuz she's actually still really little and gets tired on long walks so I think after reading everyone's comments ill be bringing the double! - MommyRN10 3.7 #23798 12-30-12 10:43PMLike(1)Reply
We used our double stroller for the first time our last trip and had no problems whatsoever. I enjoyed having the boys in one rather than trying to fit two seperate strollers through the crowds. - DiznyMommy 321.5 #698 12-30-12 9:12PMLikeReply
I agree that you should use whichever stroller is more comfortable for you. My toes have been run over by both types an equal number of times. 😻 - debbiev 819.1 #188 12-30-12 9:38PMLikeReply
Use whatever you want. I have a double now and used it the last 2 times I went. Crowds are crowds and strollers are hard to walk with, single or double. I prefer my double with 2 kids and easier to store things. But whatever makes you more comfortable. My husband doesn't like the umbrella one cuz he is 6'3" and he has to lean down to push it - brodysmommy 336.9 #627 12-30-12 9:40PMLikeReply
We have a side by side double stroller and bought it specifically for DL. It's not anymore difficult to maneuver or get around in the crowds then single strollers and we take turns pushing which is nice. I get exhausted pushing by myself the entire day! - akpoppins 263.1 #1096 12-30-12 9:48PMLikeReply
We used a double stroller on my last trip. But mostly it was used to stash our stuff and parked it a lot. - philliprocks 874.3 #173 12-30-12 9:51PMLikeReply
I like the ones that are double front one in front of the other. they make it through the crowd easier, and people can walk past without any trouble so traffic keeps flowing. But it is up to each person and what they feel comfortable with. - secretagentangel 1251.8 #103 12-30-12 10:00PMLikeReply
We tend to use our double jogging stroller, its much more comfortable for the kids. Just make sure you a lot of patience when walking through crowds. We have umbrella strollers too, but we get annoyed because people tend to step over the boys' legs (which I think is so rude!). - dessertLOVER 145.1 #2636 12-30-12 10:06PMLikeReply
I don't have kids but I am in a wheelchair so my advice is do what makes you as a family comfortable. Oh and be prepared for people who are not paying attention to their surroundings, we had so many people run into me it was ridiculous! But be safe and bring patience I think people are just over stimulated when they are there. Have fun! - PrincessDaisy 305.1 #779 12-30-12 10:15PMLikeReply
We use a double stroller, but it is not a side by side, so it is just as easy to maneuver as a single stroller. For me , banana strollers are good for short trips, but not too comfortable for a full day at DL! Hope this helps! - 7mouskedoodles 353.1 #580 12-30-12 10:17PMLikeReply
We've tried both ways and we found it was easier to keep track of one stroller. It is easier to keep them together and we've never had a problem maneuvering around the parks. - 2princesses 233.4 #1431 12-30-12 10:28PMLikeReply
