    We are visiting WDW with our 4 month old and 3 year old in Dec and we are trying to decide which strollers/carriers to bring. We have a large Graco stroller, large 2 seat Graco stroller, umbrella stroller, and a backpack carrier. What would be best?

    Hi Christopher,

    Does your large Graco stroller use the infant car seat attachment? If so, and if you don't mind the fact that each of you will have to push a stroller, I would take the large Graco and the umbrella stroller.

    Having the stroller with a car seat attachment is helpful, especially when dining with your infant.  Inevitably, your baby will have just fallen asleep when you have reservations for a table service meal - at least that's what always happens to us.  With the car seat, you can bring your sleeping child into the restaurant, undisturbed and pop the seat right into the high chair.  Even if the baby is awake, it's easier to do this than to hope that the restaurant has any infant highchairs available.

    The umbrella stroller is super easy to maneuver through the parks, and easy to fold up when getting on the bus to head back to the resort.  Make sure you tie a bandana or brightly colored ribbon around the handle of your stroller.  Cast members often rearrange strollers while you're inside an attraction.  You'd be amazed by how many people have your EXACT same stroller. A brightly colored ribbon will make it easier to identify.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
