    Hi Moms! We will be traveling to WDW with our 4 month old for Princess 1/2 weekend. We have been scouring the Internet for suggestions on a sun shade that will work with our Britax B-sage stroller. Would you recommend purchasing one and if so, what kind?

    Hi Jen! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. How exciting that your Walt Disney World adventure is fast approaching. It will be here before you know it. Traveling with your four month old - hakuna matata! Walt Disney World makes it so easy and convenient to be in the theme parks and resorts with little ones.

    I have two young children who have been visiting Walt Disney World since before they could walk, and they were in that exact same Britax stroller! In my experience, the sun shade that is already built into the stroller provides sufficient shade to keep your little one cool and protected. If you are concerned about sun exposure on little legs that may pop out of the shade, I recommend bringing a thin blanket to use as a drape, or putting your baby in long pants - it should be cool enough in February that you would dress him or her in pants anyway. An inexpensive rain cover that can be purchased on Amazon might also be a good investment - especially if you plan on returning to Walt Disney World in the rainier months while your child is stroller age. A rain cover can keep your stroller and your child nice and dry during those afternoon Florida rainstorms.

    Jen, as your trip nears, I encourage you to explore information about traveling to Walt Disney World with little ones and familiarize yourself with the locations of the Baby Care Centers. Located in each of the four major theme parks, the Baby Care Centers are a fantastic resource for parents with infants and toddlers. Complimentary to use, each center has clean and air-conditioned changing stations, a private nursing room with rocking chairs, a kitchen with a microwave and sink, and more. There is also an on-site shop with any necessities you may have forgotten to bring, like formula, diapers, and over-the-counter medication. For my own little ones, the Baby Care Centers have always been a great place to take care of business in a relaxed atmosphere away from the crowds. Wait until you see the changing areas - you may never want to use a public restroom changing table again!

    There is nothing quite like experiencing the magic of the Disney Parks through the eyes of your child. Even at four months, your baby will take in so many intriguing sights, sounds, and scents. Be sure to take lots of pictures, and enjoy making memories during this unique time.

    Have a fantastic vacation, Jen, and best of luck to anyone who is running!
