    Is it unusual to use a stroller for a 6 year old? She is healthy and an average sized 6 year old. I am concerned about the amount of walking required, but I don't want her to feel uncomfortable riding in a "baby" stroller.

    Hi, Larry!   My son is 7 and is a tough little guy, but he is more than happy if I offer him a stroller when we are at Disney!   It is a LOT of walking, so if they can rest their legs for a few minutes it really helps.  

    You can go without it, and if your princess starts to get a bit weary, show her the rental strollers and ask her if she would like to use one.   I am sure she will let you know her feelings about it!  

    Strollers can be rented by the day, so perhaps when in a smaller park like Magic Kingdom you can go without one, then when you go to Epcot where there is a lot more walking and less shade, rent one there.   Click HERE for stroller rental information. 

    See how it goes as it may be different each day.  Good luck!
