    Planning a trip with me and 9 year old granddaughter. She's not a thrill ride child. I'd love to go on space mountain with a fast pass. Is there any type of close by child care to watch her just while i go on one ride?

    Hello Sharon! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question!

    My grandmother is my best friend and I always cherish the moments we spend together just the two of us. I really think it is amazing that you are taking your 9-year-old granddaughter for a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I have just recently answered a similar question from a Guest visiting with her 6-year-old son all the way from Japan. I am also currently planning a mother and daughter visit with my soon to be 9-year-old princess. She is super adventurous and thrill rides are a priority, however she is very scared of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which is one of my favorite attractions.

    Unfortunately, childcare is not available at the theme parks to watch kids who do not wish to accompany adults in certain attractions. That is why I recommend planning your visit around activities and attractions that you can experience together and make lifetime memories. However, if you decide that a helping hand is needed, I recommend contacting independent childcare provider Kid’s Nite Out. One of their childcare specialists can accompany you during your visit to the parks and look after your granddaughter. I have heard nothing but amazing compliments from friends who have already hired their services.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Sharon! Please stop by real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
