1) Absolutely
2) May still be very cold. We had snow in June.
Thanks, that was quick... actually just saw that the average weather in April is 35f so I'm thinking of doing it this summer, where should i spend more time? (thinking of going Sunday-Wednesday) Yes i know I'm early but its never too early to plan a vacation :)

Sunday-Wednesday is quite short, especially if you're not planning on flying into JAC. In any case, I'd say one day in the Tetons and the rest in Yellowstone. If you could stay longer maybe do two days in the Tetons.

Just want to confirm, that it is kids accessible "even with a stroller" Also, is it safe with all the wildlife there?

Much of Yellowstone is stroller accessible.

You should be fine with the wildlife as long as you don't do anything stupid (read: taking a selfy while riding on the back of a bison is NOT a good idea...)

Yes.

They're are no gondolas in the park, but there might be some in Jackson or Teton Village just outside.

And if you try to take a picture of the bison that's 6" away from your open car window with a crappy camera you'll probably just end up with a picture like this:

I wouldn't take young kids to Yellowstone, unless they're fine sitting in a car for long stretches of time. There's alot of driving and getting in and out of the car. Unless of course you just do one area which I recommend anyways.

Were you there? Which "one area" are you referring to?

I guess you can spend a few hours in the Lower Geyser Basin (Old Faithful area) sitting around and waiting for geysers to erupt. Most geysers there are wheelchair accessible. Good luck keeping your kids entertained for the time it takes though...

-1
I don't think there's anything particularly kid-unfriendly about Yellowstone. Sure you'll have to drive a little to get to the different areas, but you're (almost) always right near somewhere to stop with something to see/do if you want.
If your kids can't sit in a car for a half an hour then you're screwed no matter where you go...

+1, always assume that you'll get to Old Faithful right after it erupted and you'll need to sit around waiting for an hour and 20 minutes :)
