Why a Disney Season Pass Holder Swears by The Twin+
Mar 22, 2023
You've picked out your hotel, reserved your tickets, and you're officially going to Disney! Now, what do you need to bring for a visit to the Happiest Place On Earth?
We sat down with Grace Hamlin (aka @gracehamlin), a mom of two and a Walt Disney World Annual Pass holder, to learn more about why the Twin + is a Disney staple for her family, and get a closer look at her packing list for a trip to the parks!
.When did you first start using Zoe Strollers?
When our youngest was a baby, were planning a few trips where I'd be traveling alone with both girls and I knew I'd need a double stroller that would be functional for city travel but just as useful on a neighborhood stroll. I also needed one that was easy to manage on my own, but without sacrificing the quality or amenities like undercarriage storage, reclining seats, and substantial sun shades. After extensive research the Zoe Twin+ seemed like a winner and we've been using it ever since!
Do you have a favorite memory with your stroller?
It's been a part of so many special trips, but I'd have to say our first time bringing it to Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. I'll never forget looking down and seeing our two girls holding hands, sitting side-by-side. I could see a whole future of sweet sister moments ahead of us.
Do you still bring your Twin+ to Disney?
Yes we do! While our oldest is definitely out of the stroller phase in the real world, and our youngest is more independent each day, I always tell my friends that Disney World is completely different than their daily life. On average, you can expect to walk 7-9 miles a day, often in the sun and Florida heat. It's so nice to have a shaded place for both of them to rest, and thanks to the four panel sun shades it can actually get dark enough for them to nap!
Wow! They can nap while being strolled around Disney?
Not as much any more, but when they were babies, pretty much every trip to the parks we could count on a nap. I'd bring a portable sound machine, clip on a fan, recline the seat the full 165 degrees, and pull that shade down! The table service restaurants are usually incredibly accommodating of a sleeping child will find a table where the stroller can be rolled alongside so they keep snoozing while you enjoy your meal (and get theirs to go for when they wake up hungry!)
Any other features that come in handy at Disney?
The parent organizer is a must. Not just for Disney, but in general. At the parks we keep hand sanitizer in there, wet wipes, sunscreen, snacks, magic bands, mini fans, and autograph books. We love that, plus the children's snack and cup holders, and the parent cup holders that are perfect for strolling around Epcot with margaritas. The under carriage storage to carry all-of-the-things completes the perfect set up where we feel like we make the most of our park days. It's lightweight and easy to push and maneuver, and it meets the Disney stroller measurement requirements!
Do you have a go-to packing list for your days at Disney?
After we started visiting Disney more often, my friends and their friends, their sisters, their moms - everyone was asking for a packing list. So we took notes of what we brought each trip and added to it as needed, to send whenever I was asked and eventually I put it up on my blog - you can read get the full list here!
Any future Disney trips planned?
Of course! The kids love it so much, we can't stay away! Keep your eyes out for a visit to the Cabins at Ft. Wilderness!
