    We were so bummed to see the Toy Story Kids Club at The Contemporary Resort close! Is there another kids club coming? My boys are finally old enough (4 and 7) and my husband and I so badly want to do a date night in Disney!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melissa. I'm so glad you stopped by with this great question!

     I completely understand your disappointment. My family was so bummed when Lilo's Playhouse closed last year. My sons just loved spending an evening there and my husband and I certainly enjoyed the time to ourselves! While it's a shame to hear that Pixar Play Zone at Disney's Contemporary Resort has closed too, I'm happy to tell you there are a few alternatives!

     Captain Hook's Pirate Crew is the newest kids-only experience at the Walt Disney World Resort. This brand-new offering might be the perfect option for your little scallywags! Recruits for Captain Hook's Pirate Crew are dropped off at Disney's Beach Club Resort for swashbuckling activities and a pirate's feast. Reservations for this experience can be made by calling (407) 824-KIDS or (407) 824-5437. 

     You may also want to consider using an in-room babysitter from Kids Nite Out. My husband and I used this service last summer so we could enjoy a date night without our three kiddos in tow. What I really loved about Kids Nite Out is that my kids didn't stay in our hotel room for the entire evening. Our babysitter came prepared with age-appropriate games and toys for our kids ranging in age from 8-years old to 11-months old, but with our permission, she took the kids out of the room for dessert and some of the Resort hotel's recreational activities. I also loved that I could book this service online at kidsniteout.com. Talk about convenience! 

     While you count down the days until your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations. If a new childcare offering becomes available between now and your stay, you're sure to hear about it on the Disney Parks Blog!

     I hope this was helpful, Melissa. Please let me know if you have any other questions about traveling with your sons or about planning a much-needed date night!
