We vacationed with our boys last summer when they were 16 months.  One was walking but the other was still crawling.  They both had a great time and neither way really posed big challenges for us. ...

We had our boys in a co-sleeper together until they were 4 months and could no longer fit.  At that point they were sleeping through the night for the most part, so we moved them into their own room...

One other idea, since your daughter is really into her babies, is a little doll stroller.  We don't have one, but whenever we go to friends houses my boys always love to use one-- and not just kids...
