    Did any moms use the childcare services while they stayed? What can you tell me about them?

    Hi Cassidi!

    Planning a date night while on your Walt Disney World vacation? If your child(ren) are between 3 and 12, you can take advantage of one of the Children's Activity Centers. These are fantastic play centers where you drop your children off for supervised fun. Each center has video games, dress-up and arts & crafts. Dinner is included in the price for all of the centers.

    The Sandcastle Club at Disney's Beach Club Resort and Lilo's Playhouse at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort are unique in that they have a little extra magic during your children's visit. My kids have participated in volcano science experiments, cooking classes and have even seen surprise characters stop by. These two centers are one flat rate for the whole night compared to Simba's Cubhouse at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Camp Dolphin at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel which are hourly rates. Lilo's Playhouse is our family's favorite.

    For children 6 months to 12, Kid's Nite Out is an independent in-room babysitting service. A childcare specialist will come right to your room for babysitting your children only. We have used this service a few times before my youngest turned 3 and have had nothing but excellent experiences. Our specialist came prepared with books, toys and crafts for my kids. I didn't worry at all that they weren't having a good time. If you allow, the specialist will take them for walks around your Resort hotel, but they are not allowed to take them to the pool. This service is based on an hourly rate.

    Reservations are highly recommended for the Children's Activity Centers and are required for Kid's Nite Out.

    Stop back by if you'd like recommendations for date night activities!

    Have a magical day!
