Disney World Planning 101 – Using Childcare Services
On our next Disney World vacation we have decided to try out Disney’s Childcare Services. Disney offers fun and exiting things for little ones so that Parents can have a little “Me” time!
Walt Disney World Resort offers supervised activity centers, in-room babysitting, and themed parties and adventures. Today I am just focusing on the Activity Centers.
Children’s Activity Centers
Located throughout Walt Disney World Resort, Children’s Activity Centers are delightful playspaces where children ages 3 to 12 are invited to enjoy videogames, have dinner and snacks, watch Disney movies and interact with other kids their age usually while parents are off experiencing more grownup fare.
There are 6 Children’s Activity Centers at Walt Disney World Resort hotels:
- Simbas Cubhouse at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Open daily from 4:30 p.m. to midnight, Simba’s Cubhouse is based on Disney’s The Lion King and is located on the first floor near the Uzima pool deck area.
