I just thought of this besides the pack & play as a plan B (which I would still do), if she' s a more mature, verbal type of toddler then you could talk up a the place that you are staying has "special beds" for BIG girls! She could even "practice" at home in a "Big Girl or Princess or Dora or whatever she's into" bed. Then for the trip, buy her what will eventually be her toddler/twin size bedding and take it with you on vacation (surprise?), and if she's does well, she can get to take it home....IDK, something like that, maybe. or mixing that up a bit, get her the new bedding at home, and then take her bedding with you on vacation so that she can have "her bed" somewhere else. Could be way off, just rambling thoughts....good luck, though! At least you have a several weeks to think about it.
