    Are there babysitting facilities available if the parents would like to rides which the children are too small for?

    Hi Caricia,

    I hope you're having fun planning your vacation to the most magical place on earth! I'm happy to share some childcare options you'll have if you're interested in experiencing some attractions that your Mouseketeers aren't ready for quite yet!

    First, in-room babysitting is available at your Disney Resort hotel through an independent organization called Kids Nite Out. For an hourly fee, you would be able to leave your children, ages 6 months to 12 years, to enjoy time with a skilled childcare provider while you enjoy a hot meal or time in the theme parks to experience some of the more thrilling attractions. If your children are ages 4 - 12, you may also make reservations for the all new Pixar Play Zone that will soon be opening at Disney's Contemporary Resort, which looks like a complete BLAST!

    Another complimentary service that you could take advantage of is Disney's Rider Switch. You'll simply have your entire party head to an attraction entrance and ask for a Rider Switch pass, and then most of your party may go ahead and experience the attraction while one Guest waits with any members of your party unable or unwilling to ride. Once the first riders are done, they'll be able to wait with the non-rider(s) while the one who had been waiting as well as one additional Guest use the Rider Switch Pass to hop in the FastPass+ queue and enjoy the attraction. My husband and I have used this great service many times while our little ones napped in their strollers.

    I hope this helps, Caricia! Please let us know if you have any other questions, and have a truly magical vacation!
