“We’re going to Walt Disney World. Why in the ‘World’ would we need childcare?” The Walt Disney World Resort is an adult playground, too! The “World” offers an exciting nightlife and leaves lots of room for romance. All you need is a sitter. Not surprisingly, Disney delivers with a variety of childcare options and a few programs that may seem like childcare to you (but don’t tell the kids). The two main options are childcare programs at the resorts and private, in-room baby-sitting.
Disney currently offers childcare programs at five of it's deluxe resorts (Polynesian Village, Beach Club, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Wilderness Lodge, and Dolphin), but these existing programs are closing on July 31. These existing childcare programs are a good bit like daycare, but unlike daycare, their “day” starts at 4:30 pm (5:00 pm at Camp Dolphin) and runs until 11:55 pm. They offer a variety of structured activities and include a full meal and snacks. All Disney programs accept children from 3 to 12 years of age (kids must be at least age 4 at Camp Dolphin), and all children must be potty-trained. Disney's childcare clubs are now a flat rate of $55/child for the entire night. Dinner is served at 6:00 pm and snacks are at 10:00 pm (no outside food). No matter which program you contact, we recommend you call well in advance and ask plenty of questions. Reservations can be made with the club itself or at 407-WDW-DINE. Each resort offers different activities, and all are subject to change. Cancel at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a cancellation fee. Alex’s KidTip: “You can play video games and do crafts! I liked it better when I was younger (I’m 12 now), so maybe it’s better for little kids.” Allie’s KidTip: “It’s cool to stay at the kids’ clubs so you can do what you like to do and grown-ups can do what they want to do.”
