My 2 year old will not go to sleep

My son Raiden is a very active little boy, and he will not go to sleep. It is 7:00 a.m. and he finally fell asleep. He still sleeps in the bed with my fiancé and I, because he will not stay in his own bed. He learned how to get out of his crib and playpen when he was a little over a yr. old, so we got him a toddler bed and I would put him in it when he would fall asleep but he would always wake up and get in bed with us. When it is time to go to bed he will scream and kick and want to get up and climb all over us in the bed. I have tried giving him a hot bath and some warm milk to get him to calm down and maybe get tired but it doesn't help. Nothing has helped, either I or my fiancé end up staying up with him till finally he is so tired he just falls asleep. This isn't something that jut started either, it has been going on since he was a little over a yr. old. I have even started thinking that maybe he has a sleep disorder or something. I just know that I have been trying my best to get him into a sleep routine cause I am due with our second son in September. I just don't know what else to do, I have tried everything. When he does actually fall asleep early he will wake up in the middle of the night, sometimes he wakes up screaming like he had a nightmare and then he won't go back to sleep. I just don't know what to do, I am just looking for some advice please?
