    I really love the Mom's Panel. I have tons of helpful information. We have an 11 year old daughter, and a 6 year old son. We are trying to decide if we need a stroller (we don't want to rent), and what to bring into the parks with us... if anything!

    Hi Megan!

         While it may seem silly to your six year old, I would absolutely bring an umbrella stroller!  Disney World can be exhausting for kids (and adults) of all ages.  In order to keep everyone happy and comfortable, a stroller can be a lifesaver.  I will be visiting in May and will be renting a double stroller from for our two youngest boys who will be six and eight!!!  I wouldn't dream of putting either one of them into a stroller at any other time, but at Disney World, they really appreciate the comfort!

         I would also bring sunscreen, baby wipes, hand purifier, water bottles and the all important cell phone or Portable video game.  The lines can be long and get a little boring.....Just toss it all into a backpack and hit the parks!

    Much pixie dust,
