    I have visited WDW before, but this will be my first one with an infant. He weighs over 25 lbs, and I can't carry him for extended periods because of back problems. Is there a way I can use a stroller while waiting in line? My husband will not be with us.

    Hi Jessica!

          I know all about big babies!  All three of my boys were 20 lbs before they were 6 months old, so I know all about carrying big bundles of joy around the parks!  While you can bring your stroller through the line on many attractions, you will need to "park" it at the entrance to many others.  I suggest picking up a Guest
    Assistance Card
    , which will allow you to use your stroller as a more of a wheelchair.  I suggest bringing a letter from your doctor which outlines your weight lifting restrictions.  If granted this GAC, you will be able to use special entrances and exits which allow wheelchairs/strollers.  I can't guarantee that you will receive the card, but you should be just fine with a note from your doctor.  I want to add that these cards and other accommodations are designed for folks who truly have medical issues, such as back problems, and not those who want to skip through lines.

         I suggest taking lots of breaks, so that you don't wear yourself out!  There is a Baby Care Center in each park, which offers diaper changing areas, high chairs and kiddie sized tables and chairs - all in air conditioned comfort!  Have a wonderful vacation and kiss those baby cheeks for me!

    Much pixie dust,
