Pros and Cons of using a Stroller and Rental Options
Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Black loop. Today we are sharing our must haves when we are traveling with little ones. Welcome aboard!
They say you average 10 miles of walking a day at Walt Disney World. That is a lot of walking!! So even if your child may be long past using a stroller at home you may still want to consider one for vising the Disney parks.
***To be fully transparent I did receive a Kingdom Strollers rental free of charge and there are affiliate links within this post. The opinions stated below are completely my own based on my experience. Your results and opinions may vary.***
Deciding When to Use a Stroller
It is an easy decision for those when children aren’t walking or are new to walking long distances. But what about older children?
A good guide is to ask yourself could your child make it a full day without melting down and you having to carry them some or most of the time.
My husband has first hand experience. The first time he took his then 5 yo son to Walt Disney World they thought he was old enough to make it the full day but by lunch they marched right up to the front of the park and rented a stroller.
So for our family we have decided that our sons will use a stroller until they are 6 and then they are kicked out and have to fend for themselves. (we are evil like that)
But since each child is different make you own call. Especially if there are hidden factors that may cause them to tire easily or they need to be out of the sun.
The Evils of Being a Stroller Person
If you do plan on using a stroller let me warn you that strollers are griped about just as much as those dreaded electric scooters. Strollers are known for clogging up walking paths and taking up valuable space in those ever growing stroller parking lots.
So you do have to accept that some people will complain within earshot or cut you off when you are walking with a stroller. (you can “accidentilly” clip them in the ankles – it would be their fault after all for getting in front of you so quickly )
