    We(couple + 3yr old)will be visiting DW ( 1st timers!) for 6 days n May, staying at the animal lodge. Shuld I reserve all meals, from breakfast to dinner?Also, any insights on the childcare center there? I am thinking about a date night with husband!

    Hi Katia and thanks for the question.

    I absolutely recommend booking as many advanced dining reservations as possible.  Disney restaurants are extremely popular and occasionally walk-up seating is not available.  You can easily browse the Disney World Dining Options ONLINE, or if you prefer, you can call a friendly Disney Dining cast member who will happily assist you in making your advanced dining reservations (407)WDW-DINE.

    There are several children's activity centers located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort and believe me, your child will have a BLAST playing games, making crafts, and watching movies.  They even serve a kid-friendly dinner.

    I am a stay at home Mommy, and my daughter has never really "stayed" with anyone but me.  On our last vacation, hubby and I planned a date night in celebration of our anniversary so we called on the activity centers for help.  I was a little nervous dropping her off, and informed them to call me the minute she started crying and not to hesitate if she did... Wee, that call never came.  In fact, I had a hard time getting her to leave when we returned.  The only tears shed were those she cried when she was begging to stay. 

    I also highly recommend Kids Nite Out, a highly recognized and certified childcare agency that provides in-room nanny care at the Walt DIsney World Resort Hotels.  This company has a long-standing relationship with Disney and the kids always seem to have a great time!  You can contact them directly at (800) 696-8105.

    Best Wishes,
