Child Care at Disney World

Child Care Options at Disney World

Disney World is a magical vacation destination for kids of all ages. But, that doesn’t mean adults can’t manage a bit of alone time. What follows is a short list of Disney World child care options available for resort guests. Your kids will have tons of fun and you can totally relax!

Camp Dolphin at Walt Disney World

Camp Dolphin is a fun-filled kid’s activity center located in the Dolphin Hotel at Walt Disney World. At Camp Dolphin, your kids can take part in activities such as arts and crafts, playing board games and even catch up on their favorite video games in a safe and friendly environment.

There are nightly Disney movies and exciting themed activities, where your kids can win prizes for participating. Due to the camp’s popularity, children need a reservation in order to take part. Unfortunately, it isn’t free. Camp Dolphin charges by the hour and requires that kids hanging out there be potty trained and out of diapers or training pants.

Sandcastle Club at Walt Disney World

Is your family staying at Disney’s Beach Club resort? If so, be sure to check out Sandcastle Club, the in-resort children’s activity center where your kids can spend time as a pirate. They’ll have a blast practicing swashbuckling and having face-to-face meetings with Captain Hook.

In addition, kids have the opportunity to learn how to make chocolate chip cookies from a trained cookie chef at Ratatouille Cooking School. Reservations are recommended for these events, though walk-ins are permitted as long as space is available.

Simba’s Clubhouse at Walt Disney World

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Simba’s Clubhouse is a place for kids to go for supervised crafts as well as free play activities. Kids can play video games and watch Disney movies as well as participate in craft sessions to make their own souvenirs.

Kid-friendly meals are also available at Simba’s Clubhouse, so your little ones can grab something to eat before heading back out into the park or to your room.

Lilo’s Playhouse at Walt Disney World

Lilo’s Playhouse at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort offers some of the same events for kids as Sandcastle Club. However, this club’s decor and activities focus on an exciting luau theme.

Not only that, kids will have loads of fun learning about the physics of volcanoes. How? They get the chance to build fun paper volcanoes and watch them explode as part of a one-of-a-kind lava flow activity. For more information on which activities are available on what day, check with the front desk at the resort.

In-Room Disney World Child Care

If leaving your kids at a supervised group activity center isn’t for you, then Disney World resorts have you covered. At select locations, it’s super-easy to call for in-room, one-on-one babysitting provided by Kid’s Nite Out.

The rates are a bit higher than the typical rates at Disney’s children activity centers, but still just under $20 per hour for one child. (At the time of this writing.) Better yet, you can hire a child care specialist to stay with you and your family while you explore the park. He or she is more than happy to give you a hand whenever necessary.

    Considering the activities they have and the price they charge it seems very reasonable and kids will always love disney and it will be something they will always cherish

    This is a very informative article regarding planning your Disney World activities. I understand that the main purpose of visiting the place is to enjoy it with kids but it doesn’t mean that you can’t have some ‘lone time’.

    I think it is great Disney offer these kinds of schemes. It is a good way to keep the kids having fun while parents can get a little break!

    We have been to DisneyWorld quite a few times now. We love it! It’s a novel idea to drop the little uns off and enjoy the park by yourselves. It seems a little bit naughty…and nice!

    Yeah it’s nice everything is there for kids. And I guess grownup have more freer time as well

    I’ve never been much a Disney goer so I’ve never thought about childcare options there. But it’s so amazing that they even offer this sort of thing for parents and families.

    Wow I never knew there was child care options, granted i’m not a parent. But this is such a great option for parents wanting to enjoy the parks alone for a bit. Love that the kids still get to enjoy fun activities too.

    I suppose disneyland is like a paradise for most of kids in the world and if they take care of our kids the way they make marketing, this service must be perfect

    I had no idea that there were so many child care options. We keep talking about a trip but are afraid we would not be able to enjoy all of the adult rides. This definitely makes that possible.

    My son loves activities such as arts and crafts. I am sure he will have a great time at the Dolphin Hotel at Walt Disney World!
