    My daughter is almost 5 weighs 75lbs and is 48inches tall, she doesn't fit in any unbrella strollers, we don't want to bring our jogger stroller which doesn't fold well anyway and don't want to pay the price to rent a stroller daily. Do we really need one?

    Hi Katrina! We have travelled to Walt Disney World with 4 year olds and we did not need a stroller, but depending on a few circumstances, we have wanted one. When our 8 year old daughter was 4 years old, she was a bit less energetic than our 4 year old son is now.  She did pretty well on the first 2 days at the parks, because we had character meals for breakfast, returned to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort for lunch time R & R and returned to the parks in the evening. However, on the day of our visit to Animal Kingdom Park, we were going to stay through lunch because of the earlier park closing time.  Bad idea on my part, she melted down just after 2:00 pm and wanted my hubby to carry her on his shoulders for the rest of the day.  Well, that lasted a short time before my hubby was baking in the Florida heat.  So, off I went to rent a stroller.  She actually took a nap, we continued to enjoy the park and all was well. My 4 year old son is a bundle of energy and like the Energizer Bunny he just keeps going. I would recommend that you plan for breaks during your visit to the parks and play it by ear; don't hesitate to rent a stroller if you find that you want one.
