    WDW in September with DH, DS5, DD16mo. Wondering what you've found is the best solution for a toddler who doesn't sleep well in hotels (at least not so far). Requested a crib over a pack n play. Sleeping in crib at home, will be on a cot at daycare.thx!

    Hi, Krystal!

    I always found the best way to get my little ones to sleep was to keep things as "normal" as possible when traveling.  Stay on sleep schedules, nap times, and meal times.  I always brought their favorite pillow or blanket and a stuffed toy from home.  I tried to make things as cozy as possible, and that seemed to work. 

    The great thing about a Disney vacation, is that after a full day of magic, our little Mouseketeers are super tired, so hopefully a nice bath, a soft blanket, and a kiss goodnight will put your little one right to sleep.  Good luck!
