    It looks like the Children's activity centers that we used last visit are no longer available for child care in the evenings. What are my childcare options for a 4 and 9 year old. My husband and I would like to spend one evening without the kids.

    Hey Julia!

    Thanks for coming back to see us and you've asked another awesome question! As the mom to two little ones myself, I know that a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with your kids is a magical experience, but can also be exhausting. So it's really nice to have an opportunity for mom and dad to have an evening on their own during your vacation to get a bit of a break!

    My little ones visited the Children's' Activity Centers multiple times and they loved them. The Disney Imagineers are always bringing new experiences for Guests to enjoy, including for the littlest Mouseketeers. While the Children's Activity Centers are no longer available, little Guests from 4 years old to 12 years old can become part of Captain Hook's Pirate Crew! This special offering for kids allows your little ones to learn how to be a pirate and even go on a treasure hunt. Plus, your little ones will get to enjoy a pirate feast and then set sail with their crew on Crescent Lake. This experience takes place at Disney's Beach Club Resort, so you and your husband can drop your little ones off for their fun evening and then enjoy the dining and entertainment along Disney's BoardWalk or head over to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios for an adult evening in the theme parks!

    Availability for this kids-only event is limited, so I recommend that you make your reservations early by calling (407) 824-5437. Also, be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog as your trip approaches so you can get the latest information about the fun you will be able to enjoy during your visit!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
