    Headed to DW in July with DH and DD 7 and DD 14. We have always rented a stroller to carry younger DD and to hold all our "stuff." Would you recommend renting a stroller or should we do without one? Thanks! Can't wait to get to Disney!!! :)

    Heigh-Ho Jennifer!

    How exciting the countdown to your Walt Disney World vacation is getting shorter! Those strollers sure are handy stuff holders. Our family is still in the we-need-two-strollers stage. We have found that 7 is the age where our kids can walk around all the theme parks without needing a stroller, but they still get tired and like to hop in the stroller if no one is occupying it. That being said, if I were in your situation I would not rent a stroller. Not only is it an extra cost (that's a lot of Mickey ice cream bars you can buy), but sometimes it is hard to navigate around the crowds. You must also  find a stroller parking location every time you'd like to experience an attraction.

    I suggest bringing a backpack to hold everything you need. If you purchase items from one of the Disney shops around the theme parks, you can have your packages sent to the front of the park or to your hotel if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Easy peasy.

    If you have any other questions, please visit us again real soon at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Have a magical, fantastical vacation!
