    Traveling to Disney with 4 adults & 4 kids, 9 mos/13mos/4yr/5yr. Planning on bringing two single strollers for the younger kids, they need to recline for naps. Will the older kids require a stroller?

    Hi Kathryn,

    That sounds like a fun trip! Great idea, planning ahead with the reclining stollers as they will need those naps. My boys are pretty active kids, who have vacationed at Disney World numerous times. They love to go, go, go, however at some point each day they tend to hit a wall and get quite tired. To say that a trip to Disney World involves a lot of walking would be an understatement. Even as an adult, we find our feet tired and in need of a break. As our boys got older, we often waited to see what their daily energy level was to decide on the need for a stroller. If you are planning on bringing an additional stroller with you, I would certainly take it with me to the parks. You will most likely find that the older kids will use it throughout the day. We certainly found that we needed it more than we expected and it was a great way to avoid exhaustion, which of course leads to cranky kids. If you are not planning on bringing an extra stroller with you, then wait and see how they are feeling. You can always stop at the front of the park and rent a stroller at anytime during the day.

    Hope you all have an amazing time!
