    I heard that many of the Childcare facilities are closing. Is this true and what are my childcare options?

    Hi, there!

     Julia, I'm so pleased to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's my pleasure to answer your questions today!

     My little guys loved Lilo's Playhouse, and we were so disappointed to hear that it and the other Children's Activity Centers closed this summer. You'll be happy to know that you're not without childcare options, though!

     Pixar Play Zone is a brand-new, kids-only experience at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Here, kiddos can enjoy an evening filled with games, activities, and Character encounters! Dinner and dessert is included too. This experience is offered nightly for children between the ages of 4 and 12-years old. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling (407) 824-KIDS or (407) 824-5437.

     Another option is an in-room babysitter from Kid's Nite Out. I just used this babysitting service last month! A sitter came right to our room at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and stayed with our three kids while my husband and I enjoyed a fabulous date night at Disney Springs. It was super convenient!

     I hope this was helpful, Julia. If you have any other questions, especially about traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones, please let me know. I'd love to help you plan a magical vacation!
