    Has anyone used any of the babysitting services (i.e. kids night out) with very young children? We are coming to WDW in september and are wanting to take our 4 yr to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween, but are afraid that it might be too much for our 1 yr.

    Hi Sharon!  Our family has used Kids Nite Out for many years and have been pleased with each visit.  The sitters have been extremely professional and accommodating to our needs and wishes.  When you call make sure they understand that you want a sitter that is accustomed to the age of your child.  We have used a sitter for even younger aged children then your one year old and have been happy.

    The sitters are not allowed to bathe or take children swimming but they can stroll through the resort if it is something you are comfortable with.  Ask the front desk for a dummy room card for your that can't have charges made from it.  We also let the sitter order room service which makes it easier then trying to go to a restaurant to dine with the children.  You would not have to worry about that with a one year old.  We have always allowed the strolling as it seemed to ease and calm the children.

    Make sure you have cell phones with you and feel free to call the sitter's cell phone or the room (this might wake a child up) to check on things through-out the night.  It's never easy to leave your most precious possession with a stranger.  Disney has recommended Kids Nite Out and we found they were very dependable for our family.
