    We are taking our 3yo to stay at AKL this Sept. We want a savannah view but what bed arrangement: king + daybed, 2 queens, qu.+ bunkbed? We'll be there for 8 nights and want her to be comfy! She is too big for pack n play & has toddler bed at home


    You are going to LOVE your savannah view!

    Odds are that you will get a room with two queen beds, as that is what most of these rooms are equipped with. Personally, as the parent of a 3 and 1 year old, that is fine with me. I like putting my 3-year old in that second queen bed, and put the toddler in a pack and play. It keeps the room open, and she enjoys all the room for her stuffed traveling mates!

    If they have the King+daybed option available for you, take it. The daybeds are more than large enough for the average 3-year old, and that will open up even more space in your room.

    As for the bunk bed option, I don't like it just because I think that it makes the room darker and gloomier, and I don't need the extra bed. The one advantage is that you can take blankets and make a 'curtain' for the lower bunk. With that you can keep your bedside lights on and read after she has gone to sleep. It is a nice alternative to sitting on the porch all night, every night.

    Have a magical vacation!
