Are they required? Did anyone use one/not use one??

DD is 4. We will be checking out of AKL after our first night and going to GF. I wanted to take a taxi (with our carryon) so that it woudnt take as long. It turns out my dad may actually drop us off at the airport and pick us up so we could potentially just leave the carseat in his car (we usually take car service so we use the carseat then).

We have been having her sit in the carseat on the flight so i am still not entirely sure if we would leave it behind, but am starting to think about it....

I thought the law was that if you were in public transport (taxi, shuttle, bus) that you didn't need a car seat.

in nyc it is not required---so i never take a cab with DD within the city.

When we go to the airport, we use our own car seat in the taxi

Turns out, my dad can only pick us up so will take it anyways. not sure if we need it for the trip from AKL to GF, but obviously i am neurotic

I think you're smart to have them and use them.

Thanks ladies. Yeah we really feel that she shoudl stay in her car seat. We will be having her sit in it again on the flight this year (i think we are the only ones we see with a DD this age that do that!!).. I was reading that the FAA recommends using a car seat on the plane until 40lbs and 40 inches

Sooo... i figure we will do it for the taxi too....After all, we never go in a taxi with her here in nyc since we wont be using a carseat-so why would i not use one at disney!?
