    Taking 5 y.o & 9y.o to wdw. Last time we rented a double stroller as they were younger. I know we will need a stroller again for the 5yo for sure. But it's a lot of walking for the 9y.o. too. Does anyone have any options/suggestions?

    Hi there, Amy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  I have been in your shoes so I understand the concern completely.  My best tip is to go at the pace of your children as much as possible. Offer frequent rest breaks to your 9 year old.  He or she may surprise you and not need one very often. The only park that was a concern for me at that age was Epcot Theme Park.  The loop around World Showcase can be quite long for the littler ones.  Each child is different.  For two of my own, they were fine walking that park all day on their own.  However, if your 9 year old is small, you might consider a double stroller for your Epcot day(s).  I hope this helps, Amy!

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
