so we're planning a trip next spring (nothing like planning ahead, lol), and my son will be 3 1/2. he's starting to get to the point that he doesn't really like the stroller anymore, but he just takes off when not in it. we're going to be in SoCal for 2 weeks, doing a bunch of theme parks, but also pool days and beach days. i'm wondering if i should bring a cheapie stroller from home to save the $15 per day rental fee, (also then i can take it out of the parks after a long day) or if i should see how he does, and rent it as needed (and/or if needed)?
what is your experience of going with a 3 year old? will they sit in the stroller if they're tired? how hard is it to weave through the crowds, and leaving it while going on rides/shows, etc?
when i took my daughter for the first time, she was 4, and extremely over the stroller... i offered to rent her one and she was almost insulted at the idea, lol... but i think my son might benefit from the break, as he'll only be 3. thoughts?
