We are going to Disney World in June. I have a 5 year old and 11 year old. We are staying 8 days, which I know are going to be loooong days. It won't be like we're only in the parks for 2 hours.We will obviously take breaks during the day to eat, rest as much as possible etc. A co-worker of my husband's suggested we purchase a lightweight stroller for our 5 year old, as she will be worn out midday, and we will likely not want to carry her constantly in 90 degree heat. LOL, this sounds almost silly to ask but is it appropriate for a 5 year old to need a stroller? I mean, I see the point, but I can't even imagine her fitting in one with out her long long legs draggint he ground. Just wondered what other moms thought about this. Good idea? Or No? And if so...do they make strollers for "big kids"?

I believe renting the strollers there is pretty expensive but they make them for two. I didn't like how wide they were (we didn't rent or bring one, just made our kids walk in the heat - we were there in the end of June). You could also look into a sit and stand stroller, so that the older child could stand behind the seat. If you don't have one that will fit both of them, you could always look at resale shops. Something like this:
It has a foot board for them to stand on behind the front seat and also a little sliding bench seat if the older one feels like sitting as well.

I would get one at Disney world, that way you don't have to put it on the plane, My husband and I went there on our honeymoon and we saw a lot of kids in there strollers. I think its a good Idea to use them. The reviews on them are amazing! and easy to cart around. If you don't already have a stroller I wouldn't get one just for a trip to Disney.... Good Luck
