    Major dilmena for me. Coming w/ 3&5 yo in June. Debating if 5 yo can walk for 8 days or if I should purchase small umbrella stroller for her? Our first visit. Need another mom's advice!!!

    Hi John!

         In my honest opinion, I can barely walk for 8 days and find myself wishing I could hop in a stroller!  My nine year old boy often hops in at the foot of the double stroller at the end of the day - of course, he would deny it if asked!  Rather than purchasing another umbrella stroller, you may also consider renting a double stroller at the parks.  Now that our boys are a little older (3,5 & 9,) we love to rent the strollers because you don't have to worry about lugging them on the bus!!!

         Be sure to check out the official Walt Disney World website for great ideas on how to celebrate your first visit to the most magical place on Earth.  Have a wonderful trip!

    Much pixie dust,
