5 Year old in a stroller?

Hi moms, just looking for advise, since my 4 year old was never a stroller girl (she always preferred to walk), she will be 5 soon and we're going on vacation to Orlando, so, Im nervous about not taking a stroller "just in case" cause I think the parks WILL get her tired. Does anyone know of any stroller big enough for her? where can I get it?

I am not sure where you can get a stroller big enough for a 5 year old. But I would suggest, if you have a big enough car, to maybe get her a wagon. one of the plastic ones. I used to babysit older children and I could fit 3 of them in that wagon. and my son is very big for his age, and he loves it! But if you do want to only get a stroller I would recomend going to the store and looking at the weight limit. Also, plan out your days while on vacation, if you make sure you have everything planned out as perfectly as you can, I don't think she'll get too tired to where she doesn't want to walk. You could also carry her on your back and shoulders sometimes, as well. When I don't want my son to get too tired from walking, I let his daddy carrying him around for a little while. Make sure she eats plenty of healthy foods, too, that way she will have energy without being full of sugar! :)
