Default Canon SD970 IS or Sony W290? Others?

Good afternoon and thanks for reading my message.

I am looking for advice on a digital camera for the following uses:

1. We have a toddler (primary photo target) so Photo Quality is very important and we're taking a trip to Disney in August
2. Pretty much all conditions - indoor, outdoor, possibly low light photos
3. Decent Zoom (5X)
4. Prefer the 3" LCD
5. Compact, but no need for super compact
6. Somewhat easy to use.

Probably the largest print we would even consider would be a 11x14 and that would probably not be that often... mostly 4x6 and 8x10.

I have been looking for a couple of months just trying to narrow down what I really need to get.

I think I have narrowed my choices down to (but not sold on any at this time) to the Canon SD970 IS or the Sony W290.

I have read many reviews and from what I have read the SD970 is expensive for the features, but the Sony doesn't always the best photo quality.

I would greatly welcome any advice you may be able to offer or other suggestions...
