    So I'm looking at art of animation 6-person suite. I will have a larger party that will have 3 adults 4 children (1 child under 3). What sort of extra sleeping arrangements can be made for the toddler? He is too big for a pack and play.

    Hi, Kelly! I can certainly understand your predicament. We have been traveling to Walt Disney World Resort since our younger daughter was 16 months old. At that age, she did not sleep well in a Pack 'n Play either but was fine in a regular crib. If your toddler does sleep well in a crib, there are a very limited number of them available for Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels. You can call the Walt Disney World Resort reservations line and request that one be added to your reservation. Please note that this is only a request and it cannot be guaranteed. If you do not get a chance to reserve one beforehand, you can request one at check-in, but they may not be available at that point.

    As our little princess grew, she quickly transitioned to a toddler bed. Through research, I found a few Orlando-area rental companies not associated with Disney Parks that rented full-size cribs and also toddler beds. Over the years, we rented both of these bed types from one of them, A Baby's Best Friend. We have had several great experiences with this company, and I have heard many great reports from friends about several other companies in the Orlando-area that will deliver baby gear to Disney Resort hotels. If you are not able to get the gear you need from the Resort when you check-in, know that there are other options out there so your little ones (and you!) can get the rest you need.

    I hope this information helps you keep your little one sleeping soundly during your visit so you can make unforgettable memories together. Please let us know if you have any further questions as you continue to plan your trip!
