    We will be visiting the parks in September but will be staying somewhere other than a Disney property. Are we still able to utilize any babysitting services the parks may have available in order to have a meal without the 4 yr old?

    Hi Denise! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms!

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with your four year old is sure to be a magical time. As much as I truly enjoy exploring the Theme Parks with my children it is such a wonderful treat to be able to enjoy an adult meal with my husband.

    Even though you are not a Walt Disney World Resort guest you can still take full advantage of any of the four Children’s Activity Centers located within the Walt Disney World Resort. My children love Lilo’s Playhouse the best. The rate is a flat rate and dinner and a snack are included in the cost. In my opinion it is money well spent! Reservations can be made 180 days before your arrival date just like dining reservations! In fact to make a reservation for the Children’s Activity Centers you will call the regular dining reservation line.

    I hope that you have a wonderful night out!
