    We are bringing a 4mth old & a 2 1/2 year old to Disney World.Would you recommend a double stroller,2 strollers,or 1 stroller and a baby bjorn?What is the best option for the 4 months old in park restaurants as she is not big enough for a high chair.

    Definitely don't rely solely on a Baby Bjorn! Your back will pay the price for that, and even if you take turns with another adult, you will be grateful to have the option to lay her down now and then.

    I have 3 daughters very close in age, and at one point had to travel with both a double stroller and a single stroller, so I'm familiar with both options. I think that I would opt for a double stroller, personally...UNLESS your double is a large jogging stroller. Those are a tremendous pain to use in Disney, and I would avoid at all costs. They are hard to navigate in crowds, and extremely difficult to fit in small spaces when they must be folded (on the train, in buses, etc). You won't enjoy having it to deal with, and your fellow guests will really wish you'd left it at home as well! :)

    We used a front-back duoglider stroller, and when my daughters were newborns, we used the car seat that attached to it as well. This was more comfortable for them in the parks, and absolutely the only way we could sit them down in a restaurant when they were too small for high chairs. Yes, I admit it could be challenging to take on Disney transportation, but it was very well worth it in the parks, which is where you spend the majority of your time. I have seen other families carry a bumbo seat with them for meals, but I don't think that would be my preference, for comfort or for safety, not to mention the ease of carrying it in the parks all day.

    Hope that helps!
