    Hi Susan,

    What strollers to bring on vacation to WDW is always tricky.  I think the most important thing for you to have is a place for your infant to be able to fall asleep and still be pushed around.  I would bring a regular infant stroller for the baby and an umbrella stroller for your 4 year old.  At 4, kids tend to want to walk a lot.  You'll find that when you're in an area of a park like Magic Kingdom, you'll probably just park the stroller and walk from attraction to attraction.  Having two strollers will come in handy, especially at the resorts and getting from the parks to the bus stops.  Those walks can be really long with tired children.

    Make sure you bring something to identify your stroller with.  Tying a bandana or ribbon around your stroller is super helpful.  You'll be amazed at all of the guests who have the exact same stroller as you.  Cast members often move strollers within stroller parking areas, to make more room for new guests.  Your stroller will almost never be in the exact same spot you left it.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
