    I have a 4 yo & 6 yo, stroller or no stroller? Haven't used a stroller in forever and live by amusement park where we don't use one/need one. Mom's panel consensus? I keep flip flopping, help!

    Hi, Catherine!  You might want to play this one by ear.  By the time they could walk, I couldn't keep my kids in a stroller, so I completely abandoned mine by the time they were about three.  Other Moms use them until their kids are six and seven, because the time you spend walking can be overwhelming to little ones.

    I say give it a shot without one.  You'll know early enough if the walking is too much, and you'll be able to rent one when you need one.  I think a lot will have to do with how hot it is when you go, and how many days in a row you will be doing the parks.  I like to do shorter days with my kids, and if time allows, I take a day off in between the four parks.

    I may not have helped you stop flip flopping, but I really think you may rethink it all the way up until the time you see if you need a stroller or not!

    Have a great time on your upcoming vacation!
