    We are very upset to hear there will be no in room childcare at animal kingdom resort after paying an exuberant amount of money to stay on property!! Are there any other services we may call for assistance? We are going to be there over Christmas


    I am so sorry to hEAR of your conundrum and disappointment and hope I can assist. During this time of change, Walt Disney World has continued to closely monitor the safety of all Guests and Cast Members, and with this comes a closely choreographed opening and return of all things at the Walt Disney World Resort. The Know Before You Go page is a great place to stay up-to-date on guidelines and procedures happening during your visit. 

    Once upon a time, childcare services were offered around the Walt Disney World Resort but with so many qualified offsite organizations they have passed the torch a few years ago. Guests can do a simple internet search to find information for a reputable babysitting service and your problem is solved.  And, yes, Guests staying at a Deluxe Walt Disney World Resort are paying more for a different level of stay and experience but Walt Disney World offers Moderate and Value Resorts to accommodate all budgets. Another option is to reach out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, who not only has access to the Walt Disney World Resorts but can price out a variety of other hotels, resorts and rental house options for all price points. With some well-thought-out planning and time, a trip to Walt Disney World can be a Dream Come True and turn into your Practically Perfect stay.

    So Deck the Halls, and Fa-La-la-la-la and enjoy your family time during the Christmas holiday, it is sure to be a magical and memorable one to remember.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
