    We went last June with our two girls (5 and 3). We rented a city mini double and it was awesome. It was so easy to steer and maneuver even though it was a double wide. We rented because we didn't feel like dealing with the stroller at the airport. We only took one bus to AK and it was easy told fold. We are going again this September and my parents are coming with us. We might take two umbrella strolls for the girls since we are staying AKL and will be on the buses more.

    Many years ago, we brought our double jogger to the world with us a few times. I like the joggers because they are so much easier to steer. My hubby would fold it up and stand on the bus with the stroller tucked in between the gap in the seats if it was available. We tried to travel at more off times so the bus was not so busy.

    I've been many, many times with a double stroller (jogger side by side and the longer front to back double) with my twins and more recently since we added baby #3 to the family we've purchased and brought a QUAD stroller to Disney World. Is it a pain to get around with at times? Yes. Is it necessary? Yes. Even at 5 years old my twins have a hard time walking all day at the parks. We've done it once or twice at Hollywood Studios but I wouldn't consider it at any of the other parks. They need the break of sitting down to get around at least part of the day.

    I always found it such a pain to fold our stroller, even when it was just a double stroller, that we would always just walk it into the parks from the parking lot rather than use the tram. We can fit on the monorail or the boat into the Magic Kingdom - we don't take the bus since that would require folding the stroller. In the parks, if we want to take the train or something along those lines we just park the stroller and come back for it after we are done. I've never tried taking a stroller on the boat between the resorts and the parks, so I can't answer that one.

    We also just walk to and from the parking lot as to not have to deal with the trams.
    The Citi MininGT is a nice stroller but the T bar in the bottom basket restricts storage space. The only reason I went with the Peg Perego Book for Two for our 5th and 6the babies at Disney.
    If you do take the buses having a carriers is nice to transition a sleeping kid. We like Ergo's for the littles and Kinderpack Mesh for the toddlers.
    We have 6 kids and my best advice for mid day napping is to LEAVE before they fall alseep. By the time you get back to your room with a sleeping kid they will likely wake up:( if nap time is at 1:00 we leave at 12:00 to so they sleep in the room and we can too;)

    We also plan on renting a stroller - City Mini Double from Kingdom Stroller for our upcoming trip. We will have our single for in the airport but will probably just fold it up and put it in the closet when we check in to our hotel. The double that I have is a sit and stand I have a (at the time of our travel) 9 month old and 3.5 year old and it won't work for if they are both tired at the same time - plus it's huge and my hubby already hates carting around the single on the busses lol. I'm hoping that after a couple mornings of my 3.5 year not sitting in the rental we'll probably just take the single one in the parks in the am and use the double at night... I hope that makes sense. Lol

    The Friendship boats that take you to Epcot and HS will allow you to keep your stroller unfolded and make you park it in the rear of the boat inside only. Unless it's like super crowded, which has never happened to me, you should be fine on the boats! Personally, that's the perfect location for traveling with kids bc you can walk or boat to 2 parks! YC is beautiful - Enjoy!

    not all boats are able to take strollers unfolded the smaller ones that can not take wheelchairs you will have to fold stroller. the boat from TTC to MK is fine no folding but if I remember correctly the one from Poly to MK you have to fold. if you take monorail from TTC there is only the ramp up to platform which can be hard to push loaded double stroller up, also true at MK leaving
