    Last visit daughter was 6 + we used a stroller for her. The bottom storage was GREAT. Nice to have things handy+not in my daypack. Now she is 10 +I'm thinking of bringing stroller just for the bottom storage. Cheaper + more handy than lockers. Pros? Cons?

    Hello Ellen,

    I rented a stroller for my then six-year-old daughter one day because I knew my family would not be able to take a much needed mid-day break. Instead of hearing her whine about achy feet, she quietly sat as we maneuvered between attractions. And we all know that a Princess needs a royal carriage for transport!

    And you are so right - having the stroller for storage is fabulous. Not carrying around my bag of Park goodies (sunblock, ponchos, and camera) is great.

    But something you'll want to keep in mind is your daughter's age. Will she be okay with knowing the stroller is for her? If she's sassy like cowgirl Jessie, a stroller may not be the coolest of rides. Also, I see you're coming from Pennsylvania. You have to consider if it's worth lugging a stroller from up North to Florida. You may just want to downsize your Theme Park necessities into something smaller and compact. And while I have never had a problem leaving my stroller outside, I always suggest bringing your purse and other valuables with you inside the attractions.

    Hope this helps!
