What type of stroller/strollers situation would you recommend for 3 boys (ages 6,4,and 1)? There are just 2 of us to carry them onto buses and someone will have to help with the kids.

Hi Ronda! I bet your boys are getting so excited about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World! I've brought my kids at those ages as well, and while it may seem overwhelming now, it is actually not too bad to navigate the park with a stroller. In fact, I wish mine were still in a stroller so I could have a place to tote my purchase, purse and snacks!
I have two suggestions, based on what worked best for my family.
One year we rented strollers while in the park. This was great because we didn't have to worry about hauling strollers on the bus and back to the resort. The Disney strollers are also great! They are comfortable for the kids and have a place to put your drinks, bags and more. They offer both single and double strollers. Review the stroller rental guide
for more information on pricing and where to rent strollers at each of the parks.
Another option is to bring a stroller from home. My favorite is the Sit n Stand double baby stroller because it allows the two younger children to sit in the stroller and the older child to stand on the back. My six-year-old felt too old for a stroller, but often got tired walking around the park. This stroller is a great solution for allowing your older child to feel like a big boy without tiring out his little legs.
You can bring the strollers on the buses, but just remember that your little ones cannot be "in" the stroller while on the bus, so you will need to have it folded up when the bus arrives.
I hope you have a magical vacation!
