    Single mom attending Florida Medical Assoc. 7/29-31, one full day, two half day meetings. What kids activities are available during the day? 9 year old high functioning autistic son. Thanks.

    Hi Kathryn,

    You may certainly take advantage of the convenient Childcare Services offered to guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. However, most of the Children's Activity Centers are open daily from 4:30 p.m. until midnight.

    Since you need care for your son during the day hours, I would suggest hiring the services of an agency such as Kid’s Nite Out or Fairy Godmothers Sitting Services. These independent childcare specialists can provide one-to-one babysitting in the comfort of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room. You may even reserve a childcare provider to accompany your family during visits to the parks, giving a helping hand where needed.

    Most care specialists come with plenty of activities. However, I would suggest having some of your son's preferred activities prepared ahead of time too. Sitters will not be allowed to bathe your child or take him to any pools for safety reasons. However, she can take him for walks around the resort. Years ago, a friend of mine and I hired Kid's Night Out. We gave the sitter permission to take our children to the Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, and then lunch at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. Our children had a blast! However, you may also have them order room service for your son's meal.

    Kid’s Nite Out is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To contact Kid’s Nite Out, please call (407) 828-0920, 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., 7 days a week.
