I find it really easy to travel with strollers. You can bring it all the way up to the door of the plane, and then they load it for you. Then when you come off the plane, it is waiting outside the door for you. (at no extra cost) There is no way I could have done Disney World without our stroller. Even if our son wasn't sitting in it, it was so nice to have to store our bags, extra change of clothes for the little guys, the camera, things we bought, etc. I attached carabiners to the sides of the strollers so that additional things could be attached and easily reached. We attached water bottles (that had handles) and those little water bottle fans to them. It was hot when we went and it was nice to have those things within reach.
My son was almost 3 when we flew to Florida last year. We also have a Sit N Stroll
which is awesome for flying. We took that as well. It is a car seat specifically designed for flying that turns into a stroller (wheels pop out the bottom and a handle pops up). It fits down the isle of the plane then folds up and serves as a car seat. It is really nice if they are sleeping on landing so you don't have to wake them up to get going. It has been such a good investment and is perfect for ages 2-4. Something like that may be the only thing you need to take. Otherwise, I would recommend taking a full size stroller so that you can store things better then those little umbrella strollers. I find the easiest stroller to fly/travel with is the Peg Perego Pliko P3
stroller which folds up like an umbrella stroller but is actually a full size stroller. It also has steps on the back for an older child to 'ride' on.
