    Visiting WDW in July 2010 with my 6 year old who has been out of a stroller since she was 3 years old. We do not own a car, so she is used to walking quite a bit. Should I take a stroller?

    Hi, Diana!   I really think you will need a stroller for your 6 year old.   You will be walking several miles each day, and in that hot July sun, a break in a stroller will really help.   I would go to a local discount store and pick-up an inexpensive umbrella stroller (preferably one with a top/sun shade.)   If there is a small basket for storing your water bottles, sunscreen, etc, that would be even better!  

    Especially in a park like Epcot that has very little shade and tons of walking, I think you will be happy to have a stroller.   Strollers do need to be folded up when entering the buses, so be ready to collapse it when you are boarding.   

    If you do not bring a stroller from home, they can be rented or you can purchase a stroller for about $50 in several gift shop locations. 

    Whatever you decide, prepare for heat with sunscreen, hats or visors, refillable water bottles, wet wipes, and sunglasses.  Also plan to take afternoon breaks at your resort pool to cool off!   Enjoy your summer vacation in WDW!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
