    This is my 1st time traveling with my 18 month old and we are planning to go to Walt Disney World. What do most moms do with their toddler when it's time to sleep? Play pen or Crib? Seperate room or same room as mom dad? Any recs for moderate priced hotel?

    Hi, Rahill! When our youngest was 18 months old, we put the little biscuit in the pack n' play (provided and set up free by Disney) and it worked out perfectly. We'd just put it in the corner of the room and it worked like a charm. He was usually so tired by naptime and bedtime that he didn't have any crazy left in him to keep him awake.

    We'd be super quiet in the morning and limit our use of overhead lighting in the sink/vanity area. Shaving by the LED light on your mobile phone is an art, dude.

    Speaking of crazy, when he was 18 months old, he had a 2 minute shelf life in a stroller and then he'd feel the need to go bipedal. We knew this going into the trip, so we brought both a stroller and a toddler backpack for him to ride in. He loved the toddler backpack. My lower back and shoulders? Not so much, but it was worth it to see him so happy and have a handle on him at the same time.
