    We are staying at the AOA in October. It is the 1st visit to WDW for our kids, age 7 and 3. Will it be possible for us to use one of the childcare centers at a deluxe hotel or do we have to use Kids Night Out? How early can you book that? Thanks!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kara!  Congratulations on your Walt Disney World vacation! I actually stayed at DIsney's Art of Animation Resort in December and loved the immersive storybook theming, dedicated bus service, and attention to detail found throughout the entire resort!

    It is definitely possible for you to use one of the Children's Activity Centers at a Deluxe Resort.  I wanted to mention that all of the Children's Activity Centers are for kids ages 3 to 12; however, Camp Dolphin is for kids ages 4 to 12.  You may begin making reservations 180 days prior to your arrival to the Resort by calling (407) WDW-DINE. I have personal experience with the Never Land Club at Disney's Polynesian Resort which I highly recommend. Although we were staying at a different Deluxe resort on one particular vacation, we chose to put our twins at the Never Land Club based on the fun theming and close proximity to where my husband and I were having dinner that evening. Follow the link provided here to learn more about the Children's Activity Centers. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Kara!
    Happy Planning,
