    My husband and I want to ride Everest when we visit Animal Kingdom. Our children, however, are too young for the ride. Is there a paid, onsite service available for childcare?

    Welcome Rodney!

    Thank you for visiting us and bringing your planning question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Expedition Everest is fun, forwards and backwards and at night! I understand your desire to ride this one of a kind attraction and hopefully this information will help you do just that.

    While there is not a in-park babysitting service, there are a few options for childcare and another solution that may work while you are in the park and just wanting to ride a few rides.

    First, there is an outside company that you can hire that will send a sitter to your room to watch your little ones if you'd like to head into the parks alone. You can find the information for "Kids Nite Out" through this link. 

    Also, for potty-trained children age 3-12, there are Disney Children's Activity Centers located at certain resorts. Here, you are able to drop your kids off for some supervised fun while you explore the parks.

    Last, and this may be the best option if you're just hoping to ride a few thrilling attractions, there is the Rider Switch Service. With this one of you can ride while the other waits with the children and then switch places without waiting in the general line again.

    I hope this information helps, but please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
