Well, my just about 6 year old does not care what people think of her and is willing to ride in the stroller if she gets tired enough. I bet some on here would probably shun me that she's still in a 5 point harnessed car seat too. My DD is an extremely active, healthy girl so I imagine that she will mostly walk but it's there if she needs a break. And, I only care what my daughter does and having a good time at Disney and don't really care what anyone else chooses to do. Heck to all the rude judgemental people. Life's too short .
