My middle daughter stopped using the stroller last summer when she was 2 1/2. She just didn't want to stay in it anymore. It was nice to be able to go out without it finally (we had been using it forever). But I agree about Disney. I have been to Disney World and I got tired real fast walking around. That is why me and my husband decided if we ever went with the kids we would wait until they were older. There is a lot of walking. Even now when we go places, like the zoo, we bring the stroller (even before we had the baby) just in case the kids got tired. Our oldest is 6 but gets tired very easily. And she is very vocal about her feet hurting which is just annoying so we bring the stroller for her to sit in (it is a big double stroller that we had when the kids were babies).

Two or three is a good age for kids to start walking around on their own. However for Disney or other big trips where there is a lot of walking, I would say age 5. Little kids just can't take walking all day like an adult can and I don't think it is fair to force them to do so.

My daughter was also out of her stroller at about 2 years of age. As soon as she started walking pretty good, we pretty much stopped using it, unless we went to the mall or something.
