    are there child minding services or a creche available at animal kingdom ?

    Hi, Renata! There are several Kids' Programs at WDW designed to give parents and caregivers a break to enjoy more grown-up entertainment. However, none of them are located in the parks, but rather in the resort areas. Most of the group childcare centers are located in select Deluxe WDW Resorts and are usually open in the afternoons through late evenings. The children must be between the ages of 4 and 12, and currently, the fees are $11.50 per child per hour with a two-hour minimum.  You can check with your resort's concierge upon arrival.

    In addition, there is a sitting service called Kid's Nite Out which provides one-on-one services for a fee. You can hire a childcare specialist to come to your resort room or accompany you to the parks to watch your child(ren) while you are there. There aren't restrictions on ages for this service. For more information, you can call (407) 828-0920.

    Lastly, there is a Tea Party at the Grand Floridian and a Pirate Adventure held at several select resorts for children in which you may be interested. However, the minimum age is 4, and there are fees associated with the activities. You can call 407-WDW-DINE for more information and to make a reservation.

    I hope this helps you with your vacation planning. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
