    Hello! Can you recommend any trusted 3rd party to hire to "baby sit"/explore Disney with my 11 y.o. son while I attend a conference at the Grand Californian Hotel in June?

    Greetings, Leann, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You and your son are going to fall in love with Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa – not only is it beautiful, but the service is impeccable! As for hiring a babysitting service to watch your son during your stay, I recommend checking with the Front Desk for a list of private third-party providers. You can even call the hotel ahead of your stay at (714) 635-2300. 

    You’ll be visiting the Disneyland Resort at a very exciting time, with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge recently announced for May 31, 2019!  In addition, the Disney Parks Blog also announced that Guests staying at any of the three Disneyland Resort hotels between May 31 and June 23, 2019, will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest), though valid theme park admission is still required.

    There are also plenty of fun activities for your son to check out at the Grand Californian, including a movie night, Art of Craft Tour, and The Grand Quest scavenger hunt! Plus, the three thrilling pools will offer a great break from the warm California sun, including a 90-foot-long waterslide that twists and turns around the giant stump of a Redwood tree! 

    Wishing you a magical conference and a special getaway with your son to the Happiest Place on Earth!
