    I can't decide if I should bring a stroller or rent one. My son is only 6 and we'll be doing alot of walking. I hate to bring one if I don't need it and be stuck pushing it all day, and if I don't bring one, I'm afraid I'll end up needing it.

    Hi Kelly,

    This is always the debate in our house!  I've found that as the kids get older it makes more sense to rent a stroller if necessary.  Although the rental strollers may not be the most economical option, they are extremely easy to push, which becomes more and more important as the kids grow.  There is not a lot of storage space, but once they are beyond diaper bag age it really isn't a big deal.

    The downfall to renting a stroller is that you have to leave it at the gate...and I know often times it's those last few steps to the monorail or busses that can do us in!  On the flip side there will be nothing to fold up or carry when trying to use the Walt Disney World transportation system.

    Hope this helps!
