    Hi. Are there any resources on finding childcare. My husband and I would like to have a date night while we're there. Are there safe babysitting services?

    Hiya, Larissa, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your Disneyland Resort vacation is almost here, and I couldn’t be more excited for you! You’re going to make so many magical memories at the Merriest Place on Earth! This is my favorite time of year to visit the theme parks, and I have a feeling it will soon be yours, too!

    I’m also glad to hEAR that you’re interested in setting up a date night for you and your husband. The Disneyland Resort offers so many wonderful options for romantic date nights! But first, I’d be happy to pass along some information about reputable babysitting services for you. The Disneyland Resort offers referrals for private third-party childcare services. However, since these referrals are subject to change, I recommend calling your Disneyland Resort Hotel directly to find out which options are currently available. 

    Once you have your babysitter secured, you’ll want to start thinking about dining reservations. One of my favorite date-night spots is Napa Rose, a beautiful restaurant located inside Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. It’s adjacent to Downtown Disney District, and it’s a short walk from both the Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, too. I recommend asking for seats at the Chef’s Counter for an unforgettable dining experience! You can check availability online or by calling (714) 781-DINE (3463). 

    For a more casual date night, how about bowling and burgers at Splitsville Luxury Lanes in Downtown Disney District? Afterward, don’t forget to stop by the CrazyShake Window by Black Tap for a delicious dessert you’ll never forget!

    Last but not least, I recommend checking out Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, located at the Disneyland Hotel, for after-dinner drinks or appetizers. The tropical décor and tiki torches will transport you to island life in no time!

    Wishing you a magical, romantic date night at the Happiest Place on Earth, Larissa!
