    Is it possible to contact the beach club resort reception prior to arrival to arrange to have a travel cot already in our room as it will be late when we arrive due to our flight time being pushed by the airline. Also is there a kettle in a standard room

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, James!

    You are as welcome as can be at planDisney.  How exciting that your magical vacation at Walt Disney World is just around the riverbend.  Your little Mouseketeer is going to have so much fun soaking up all that pixie dust!  

    James, I completely understand how much little ones need a night of sweet dreams after a long day of travel, and certainly to get ready for their magical park days.  There are a couple of options to ensure your little prince or princess is ready to jump right into their beauty sleep when you arrive.

    Every room at Disney Vacation Club Resorts comes with a complimentary Pack 'n' Play and sheet, and you'll typically find this portable cot inside one of the closets of your Deluxe Studio or Standard Room. However, some Resorts have a traditional cot or crib available if you prefer this, or you can also order bedrails to your room as well. Just note, James, that the traditional cots/cribs and bed rails are based on availability.  However, a Pack 'n' Play is always available and usually in your room upon arrival.  

    I would recommend, however, giving Member Services a call if you are a Disney Vacation Club Member, or Guest Services if you aren't, and letting them know that you are arriving late and want to ensure there will be a cot/crib or a Pack 'n' Play in your room upon arrival. While they will put a note on your Reservation, sometimes items aren't there when you arrive and in this case, you can call the Front Desk who will ensure it is brought up faster than you can say Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.

    One other suggestion, James. There are baby equipment rental companies in the Orlando area where you can rent cribs, strollers, toys, and an assortment of items for little ones if you need a traditional crib/cot and there are none available at the Resort.  Often they will drop them off and pick them up from your Resort.  However, before going this route, I do recommend calling Member Services or Guest Services first, as cribs/cots are complimentary at the Resort if they are available, and you should be able to get a Pack 'n' Play in your room.

    Regarding the tea kettle, these are not typically in Disney Resort Hotels. Disney's Beach Club Resort standard rooms have a single-serving coffee maker.  However, when you call about the crib, you can also put in a request for a tea kettle and the oh so helpful Cast Members will do their best to accommodate you.

    I hope this helps you, James!  If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back and see me.  I'll be right here, at the second star to the right, and straight on till morning.

    Magically yours,
