    It is the first time that our family visits the Disney parks, my son is seven years old and we wanted to know if we needed to rent a stroller for him for all there is to walk

    Hi, Yanosky!

    Whether or not to get a stroller for your child is up to you. At age 7, your son will probably be just fine walking. I suggest giving it a go without a stroller, but if your son is getting tired quickly, you can stop by the stroller rental location located just outside the main entrance to Disneyland Park. You can rent your buggy by the day, so if there are certain days that you are planning a lot of extra walking or long days in the parks, you can simply rent as needed. 

    To keep everyone from getting overtired, I suggest a mid-day break. Head back to your resort for a rest or even a splash in the pool. It is amazing how a few hours away from the crowds can get everyone refreshed and ready for a night of magical fun in either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. Please have your ticket ready at the park gates for re-entry. 

    Wishing you a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
