We took a buggy with a buggy board both times (first time with a 3.5 and 1.5 year old; second time with a 5 and 2.5 year old). My boys took turns using them but it was definitely needed. There's still a lot of walking involved.

We went in November with my almost 3 year old and there's no way we could have done it without a buggy. We regularly walked over 20,000 steps each day and although she's a good walk there's no way she could have coped with all that.

We stopped taking a buggy when my eldest Daughter was 5 but even on that trip I still wish I'd brought one.. as by the end of the day she was shattered!

wow everyone, every single vote is for buggy so we are taking your advice. I have bought two cheapish ones today. Planning on selling them on our return. Thank you all xx

We didnt take one for my dd, who had just turned 5 a couple of weeks before our first trip. She was fine walking to the parks from Cheyenne, staying on her feet all day and walking back again after the fireworks. I think they run on sheer adrenaline!

Having said that, at 3 years old, I would definitely have taken a buggy for her. She was fine walking a mile or so at that age, but being on her feet all day would have been too much. We used to have a 1.5 mile walk home from nursery when she was 3 (had to go via her big sisters school to collect her) and even that was too much for her to cope with after a day at nursery. I ended up having to take her little bike for her to ride home. (And I dont think DLP would be very keen on us turning up with a 3 year old on a bike! )

We dont have children but in 2011 we went with friends whose youngest was just 3 at the time.

She was in a buggy much of the time and it real,y helped. In fact she was probably the easiest to look after because she wasnt running off, and when she was tired she just fell asleep!

The only thing we should have done differently for her was ear defenders - she found the parade and night show a bit loud until we bought them.
