Have you ever used an Evenflo X-sport for a larger child?

We are wanting to have a stroller for our 7 year old at Disney. What do you think about buying an Evenflo and using it only for the week. Do you think it can withstand the wait of a child bigger than the 40 pound weight limit-like closer to 55 or so for about 4-5 days?

Yes. I did the exact same thing with a seven year old in 2003 and it was fine.

That's more than 1/3 again the weight limit. I'd be too worried about safety and potential injury to use any piece of kid equipment under those conditions.

I wouldn't even try it because of a height issue (asside from the weight issue). My daughter is 38 lbs and 41 inches tall, she is almost too tall to fit comfortably into the stroller. I would look into some of the Combi strollers with a bigger weight limit, unless you are willing to invest in a Mac. Hope to help!
