Good stroller for 5 year old


New member
We will be going to DW,SeaWorld in a month and im looking for a good stroller for my 5 year old DD. Things id like are 1) easy to push. 2) not tippy. and 3) good harness. any links would be great.

The Maclaren Volo would be your best choice, it is the best for older kids, no frills no recline just basic unbrella stroller but not a cheapy. Very easy to push, light and easy to carry. I have a friend that bought one for her 5 year old for the same reason and she still uses it and he is 6. Its great to have somewhere for them to sit when they get tired at places like that.

Just seconding Rachael's recommendation of the Volo we used one for our 5 yr old at WDW and it was perfect! We added the Maclaren organizer too and that was great.

Maybe rent a park stroller?

The ones at Disney are great (when we went a couple of years ago, we got a double for my then 3 year old and my 7 year old nephew), but I don't know about the ones at Sea World. If the ones at all the Busch parks are the same, then it's probably pretty crappy (Judging by the ones I saw at Busch Gardens Monday.)

i just returned from WDW (+ a cruise) early this morning, and brought along grammie's Volo stroller for my 4yo. gramma was very against bringing it as she feels that our little one should walk, but she is extremely ADHD and difficult to manage so I knew it was a necessity; it was absolutely invaluable. mainly for the 2 airports (orlando is very very busy) and disney world. i also discovered that it can be used to sleep by propping it between 2 chairs when she fell asleep in the middle of dinner one night.

when grammie bought the maclaren i thought it was ridiculous to pay $109 for an umbrella stroller but her logic was that she *hoped* to use it for many more grandchildren and this one felt sturdier than the cheap ones. i had to stop using the others long ago because they became impossible to push but i can still use the volo. of course, you need to watch their feet because they're tall enough to get them into the wheels or underneath easily.

disney's rental strollers were really nice too. they were similar to the jogger i use for her at home, with swivel front wheel. but you wouldnt have anything for the airport.
