For MW parents, how old were your kids when you stopped using a stroller at DL? I'm contemplating going today with my 3 year old without her stroller. Yikes!

as a mama...take the stroller unless you wish to carry a sleepy child. Great place to stash snacks, too. Tie a scarf on handle for quicky identification, as strollers are moved around by CMs. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5460.0 #17 10:42AM
^this. I was sad to give up the stroller, mostly because it would carry so much of our stuff! - Bo22  387.9 #539 11:53AM
Agree :o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1175.4 #137 11:55AM
I agree...my son is 4 and it has come in handy for him falling asleep, carrying snacks, souvenirs, extra clothes and a blanket - lilo84  377.0 #562 12:21PM
Agree as well! It'd be like going from a suburban to a 2 door coupe. Total downsize in available space. - Roboito  317.0 #766 1:34PM
We purposely bought a balloon to make finding it easier. HMACIF isn't kidding; we would come back after 25mins at a ride and it had been moved! Balloon or scarf, totally helpful - templeclan  54.8 #4380 12:32AM
I'd bring it unless you are prepared to do a lot of carrying when the little one gets tired. I wish I could use a stroller forever, just so I don't have to carry all my stuff! Have fun! - MeridaFan  3577.4 #36 10:43AM
With in a couple of hours, my high energy 5 year old princess was tired. She is typically an energizer bunny so I thought she would be fine because she hasn't used a stroller since she was 3....I was wrong. Unless you want a tired cranky little one, bring the stroller. Besides it is great for holding stuff too. - CinderellasMom  264.5 #1158 12:33PM
Now I'm definitely going to use the stroller for as long as we can. I can't believe I even thought about not taking it today. MWers to the rescue again ;-) πŸ‘ - Emlovessmallworld  67.2 #4079 11:49PM
I can't remember when I stopped using a stroller at DL. I was too young. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #133 10:39AM
At 3 and a half we stopped taking the stroller.. Hes now 4 and a half and loves his freedom ξ„…. Depends on the child - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #194 10:41AM
Take the stroller !! I used it for my 4 year old and even my 7 year old wanted to use it lol - jmza4  282.8 #31532 10:41AM
Our boys are four and we still use the stroller mostly for evenings and naps. Plus we use it to carry our stuff so we don't have to wear the back pack. - Roobug  4.1 #22281 10:46AM
Ok, great advice and now I'm convinced to take it. I knew I could count on you guys. Thanks all. - Emlovessmallworld  67.2 #4079 10:47AM
have a great time! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5460.0 #17 10:52AM
I believe it was at 3-1/2 or 4 that we started limiting the use but it was gradual & over time...probably 6-12 months until we abandoned it. Just beware that kids tire easily since they run & jump & all sorts of other things early & throughout the day. When evening comes around, they're beat and want to go home. We still have this issue so we try and go later to stay later (we are APs so we're not limited by time). - SergZak  3125.8 #40 10:53AM
My youngest was 5. I find it helpful to have the extra storage. But I have to say I LOVE being stroller free know!! Plus like my husband says...the kids really are never in it....and it gets in the way. But my kids arent stroller sleepers....they party all day at Dland :) - QueenRobin  115.5 #3237 11:19AM
I used a stroller for the whole year (we had annual passes) when my son was 3. We didn't get passes again till his 8th birthday but I stopped using a stroller when my son was somewhere between 4-5. There was no way my son would've survived Disney without a stroller at 3. - aidensmama  340.2 #660 11:26AM
My sons are 4 & 6 and in one of my previous post they were both asleep in it. It's good for stashing stuff and when they're not in it we just park it an come back for it hours later. They fell asleep around 11:30 so we had about an hour and a half of just enjoying Disneyland at night on our own. - philliprocks  1167.0 #140 11:49AM
First took my son at 2, and did not take a stroller. - Lelundrial  571.3 #334 11:50AM
I'm local so my daughter and I normally take short trips. She's super high energy and I found when I have her walk she tires herself out and usually tends to behave better in line. I stopped using it around 3. The only time I really use it there now is if we are going a full day or we go late at night. And that's only cause she's heavy now and I'd die if I had to carry her around if she falls asleep. - Nicole  380.2 #556 11:52AM
I take it STILL & my daughter is 6😜lol it's nice to put our sweaters & snacks & whatever we buy there but if it's for a short time then I think you should be ok - ParadiseFallz  22.0 #6528 12:11PM
My son is 3 and I always take his stroller unless we are doing a quick trip. He gets tired and naps in it. - thestalkerNIN  362.4 #592 12:13PM
I want to say 6 but in reality I'm pretty sure she was 7. (For those reading this, please don't judge me, we had our reasons and if she didn't want to ride she didn't have to). - Linzee  1094.9 #154 12:16PM
Lexi is almost 9 and I still bring my stroller...let them judge away! She's really shy and needs time to herself. Its like her little hideaway! We all have reasons and people shouldn't judge, just because kids look normal doesn't mean they have some other things going on. :) - Minnis2Society  369.9 #576 12:24PM
Let them judge! There is a lot of mile to walk around DL. My Nikeplus showed we walked 10 miles before our day was over, and before we started walking to the parking structure. With that said, we don't do DL without the double stroller. We stow our food , and sweatshirts in the back while my little guy rides in front. By evening my seven yr old can hop in the back when she is too tired. We all can enjoy DL when everyone is happy, and comfortable! DL is one of those places that you can get away with sitting in the stroller when you are older because it is a lot of walking. Oh, we also stow our ponchos so we could go on Splash, at night without getting too cold! - 7mouskedoodles  361.0 #597 2:21PM
Haaa thanks you two, if I could I would 'like' both of your comments. - Linzee  1094.9 #154 3:40PM
I used a stroller for my 3 yr old it's worth it! - lisaw  157.9 #2520 12:21PM
My daughter was 5. But even when she was six she still would ask to get one to ride. Little people feet get tired easily. - PrincessAuroraMomma  554.5 #345 12:29PM
I'd say 5-6 at a minimum, then evaluate your child's needs. - mswendybe  193.7 #1998 12:32PM
I'd say 5-6 at a minimum, then evaluate your child's needs. - mswendybe  193.7 #1998 12:32PM
We used a stroller for our boys until they were both 5. Definitely came in handy. - proudcanuck  478.6 #415 12:44PM
We stopped using the stroller at 5 years old. My little one decided he wanted to walk Instead of riding in the stroller. It made for very long evening we stayed all day, but it was so much easier not to have it with us. - Arielkitten13  176.3 #2232 12:48PM
Last year when we brought our son to Disney for the first time I didn't bring a stroller he was 4 at the time and a very energetic kid! He went one full day but complained he was tired constantly. The next 4 days we rented him a stroller and he was in heaven and so was I! I didn't have to carry any bags or anything with us! - Disneymomab  31.5 #5476 12:49PM
We stopped using a stroller around 7. But we really brought it mainly to lug stuff and then when it got late the twins would crash in it while my oldest and I rode Splash Mountain over and over!!!! - chuswo  376.9 #565 1:38PM
DO THE STROLLER! We did a 3 day trip with our 5 yr old and we didn't bring one the first day. Lesson learned, we got one for the next two days. He wanted to be carried around a lot and it was no bueno on my bf's back. - mochamistie  273.2 #1073 1:57PM
My daughter will be 6 on our next trip in November. I will not leave home without the stroller! She just cannot handle all the walking. - PoppinsWoo  301.6 #844 2:07PM
I can't remember her age, but I remember thinking, " where am I gonna put all my stuff?" I do recall it was not a matter of her not being able to handle the walking. But for a 3 year old, I would definitely take it! πŸ˜„ - ElectricMayhemMom  1098.3 #152 2:58PM
Lol, I am noticing that a lot of parents are the ones who don't want to give up the strollers, not the kids! If you're primarily using it to store stuff, they rent lockers for that. Otherwise, you may be unnecessarily clogging up the walkways with your stuff. 😜 - bluefairy  643.3 #290 3:20PM
My fave is when there's a five year old in the stroller, squirming and whining to Get out πŸ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  599.7 #317 3:29PM

must.sprout.2. more.arms - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5460.0 #17 3:41PM
Lol, I think you are misunderstanding what some of us are saying. We aren't keeping the strollers against our children's wishes, and trying to save a buck to avoid renting lockers. It's the opposite. After a long day of walking they are glad to have a Place to rest their tired legs. By the time theycan handle a whole day of walking they can tie their sweatshirt around their waist and carry their own water bottle like everyone else. Maybe if I didn't have kids yet I might have your opinion, but one day when you have a young one I think you will understand!😊 For now, may you enjoy the parks as much as we do! - 7mouskedoodles  361.0 #597 12:07AM
Oops! My comment was in response to Bluefairy, but it showed up in a different spot! Sorry! - 7mouskedoodles  361.0 #597 12:09AM
Yes, yes, yes!!!! So glad I took the stroller today. I thought it was gonna be a short trip but with all the fun, we made it an all day-er. Plus, we ended up buying stuff so the basket was HANDY. - Emlovessmallworld  67.2 #4079 8:20PM
I tried to stop when my boy was 3, I regret it so much because he got tired after a couple of hours and I lost him twice in the morning because he wouldn't stop running, he's better now and we no longer use a stroller and he just turned 4 - TINO  379.2 #558 8:30PM
I stopped at age 6, I was going to the parks I know I'm going to have to leave earlier because its hard for him to last long - MarshaMouse  4688.7 #22 8:35PM
6 Its the walk from the parks that kills your back. - Dizkid  368.4 #578 8:46PM
STROLLER, STROLLER, STROLLER!!!! My lil guy is 4 and wouldn't dream of not having a contained area on wheels to hold him back from running, give him a place to sleep if needed as well as carry all of our junk. - ChurroChomper  148.0 #2666 8:50PM
6 here too. I have a 3 year old now and there's no way I'd take him without a stroller. He's clingy and always wants me to carry him and I'm not allowed to because I have chronic costochondritis. - moomooluvr  293.2 #904 8:54PM
We so glad we brought an umbrella stroller with us when my younger one was 4. There was so much walking even us adults feel tired also. And we loaded lot of stuffs on it like jackets,bottle water, backpak, etc . Really appreciate we had it, saved our backs! Even my 7 years old wants to rest on it. Can't image without it. - RapunzalK  196.7 #1960 11:22PM
Bring it. I milked it out as long as I could. I miss the storage and having a cup holder. Three is way too young to expect them to walk all day. - HalfCaff  437.9 #462 11:32PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of July 27, 2015
Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  488.3 #403 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7114 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  382.9 #550 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  156.0 #2552 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1417 5:04PM
Yay to MouseWaiter kindness πŸ‘πŸ» - Dizkid  368.4 #578 11:40AM
