    We will be taking our kids ages 17, 14, 10 & 6 to WDW. This is the first time we we won't be traveling with a pre-schooler. Do you think we need to take a stroller for our 6 year old? I dont want to have to rent one so we need to decide before we go.

    Hi Nancy,

    Every child is different, but from my own experience a 6 year old can make it through the parks without a stroller.  In fact, your littlest one will probably have more energy than the rest of you. 

    I know that once children are old enough to forgo nap time, it's tempting to stay in the parks from open to close.  I still recommend taking time out in the middle of the day to swim or just put your feet up -- especially with your little one.  You'll all enjoy yourselves more if you have fresh legs to help get you through the late night.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
