    I am staying at The Polynesian for the 1st time this summer and I am worried about me, my husband, and our son staying in the same room. Do you have any recommendations of where to put the pack and play in our room so he gets a good night sleep?

    Aloha Meredith! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I absolutely love your question because I absolutely love Disney's Polynesian Village Resort! The Resort hotel is beautiful, the service is exceptional, the location is perfect and the view...well...it's magical!

    We visited Disney's Polynesian Village Resort last year and found the rooms to be very spacious. You should have several options for the placement of the pack and play. Aside from that, if your son is like our kiddos (and us), after a fun filled day in the theme parks, we all sleep very well. When my kiddos were younger, I was positioned near the pack and play if they happened to be asleep during the fireworks or Electrical Water Pageant. If either woke up due to the noise, I was there to provide soft pats on the back and comforting momma love, and they went right back to sleep. 

    Sleep has never been an issue for us but my oldest kiddo does typically pack ear plugs to try to stay asleep. Typically, though, they aren't needed. With the kiddos fast asleep, mom and dad get lots of great rest too! Deep sleep is a magical pixie-dusted bonus when traveling to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
