    We have stayed at several hotels there and I have noticed that there is no rocking chairs in the rooms to rock the very overtired little ones. I found this strange because you cater to families. Is there a way to request one for our room next trip?

    Hi Kathy!

    I've been in those shoes...many, many times!  While they're not available in the rooms, there are rocking chairs found in many of the common areas of some resorts.  You can also find rocking chairs in other locations throughout the parks, including the Baby Care Centers.  Not super convenient, for trying to get a little one down for a nap, so I'll share what we've done.

    Many of the desk chairs in deluxe resorts swivel somewhat, and we've used them before to rock a bit before bed.  We've also done the 'sit on the end of the bed and rock' method as well.  This one will burn some of those extra calories and work those abs, but it has been a solid go-to for us through the years. 

    There are also companies in the Orlando area that rent baby items such as cribs, bouncers, strollers, etc.  They also rent rocking chairs!  This is a fabulous deal for those that really need that motion to decompress and relax.

    Have a magical vacation!
