Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    I'd like to bring my 20yo mentally/physically handicapped sister to WDW because she loves Disney music, but I'm wondering if it would be very difficult for me on my own. Would there be any possibility of getting a caregiver for her if I need a night off?

    Walt Disney World is one of the most popular vacation destinations for special needs families. And I can certainly understand the need for a caregiver to have a little break.

    In-room babysitting is available for all the WDW hotels. Disney contracts with a few companies to provide in-room sitters, including Fairy Godmothers (407-277-3724), Kid's Nite Out (kidsniteout.com). These sitters primarily watch small children, but in some cases will also stay with older special needs children and adults. You will need to contact the agencies above and discuss your sister's challenges and they let you know whether they have caregivers who can assist you.

    Good luck!
