AKV - Do they actually have real cribs?

Hi Everyone,

Wondering if anyone knows if AK Kidani Village actually has real cribs (besides pack n' plays) that are listed in their description? I have talked to a friend who stayed at BWV and even though they list real cribs available upon request they found out they did not have them and only carried pack n' plays.

I currently have the request for a crib and bed rails on my reservation, but want to see if anyone knows if they actually exist at Kidani.

TIA!!!!

I can't answer for Kidani specifically but I can say that we stayed at BLT and requested a real crib even though we had a pack n play in our room. We did get the crib and it was a pretty small crib, I wouldn't say it's much bigger than the pack n play. The biggest difference between the two is the open sides and the real crib being higher off the ground. If you're requesting the crib because the pack n plays are too small (like we were), it may not make much of a difference.

The issue your friend ran into may have been cribs running out, and BWI being prioritized as they don't have pack n plays in the rooms automatically like villas do.

Remind them at check-in that you requested a crib and if there is one available they'll bring it to your room. The cribs are infirmary style (white metal and small) and DD far preferred the pack 'n play to the crib.

Thank you!!!!! Hmmm maybe I should look into renting a crib or just using the pack n' play. I wanted a crib over the pack n' play for comfort to help daughter sleep well.

Our "real crib" at both BCV and BC CL was just a smaller version of a standard crib. I prefer it over the pak and play because it had a thicker mattress which I thought was more comfortable for my grandson.

I used to work at DAKL and I'm pretty certain (unless it's changed) that they offer pack and plays. I don't ever remember seeing a real crib. But it's been a year or so since I've been there.
