    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!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
