    Hi, I am a single mom of a 3yr /9yr. I am coming to DW in aug. Is there any service that is able to watch my youngest while I go on rides that are suited for my 9yr. Or does DW have a childcare centre for the day?

    Hi Jamila:

    Your children must be very excited for this upcoming trip.  Disney World does not have an in-Park child care center.  There are various Children's Activity Centers at certain Resorts for children 3-12.  However, these Activity Centers generally open late afternoon/early evening and are located outside of the Parks, so they are probably not the solution you are looking for.  

    I would look into is Disney World's preferred childcare provider, Kid's Nite OutUsed mainly for in-room baby-sitting, they also provide In-Park Assistance with a childcare specialist who can accompany you and your family during your visit to the Parks to help as needed. We've used the service for in-room baby-sitting and were very pleased with the babysitter we were provided. Kid's Nite Out caregivers are interviewed, screened, and provided with childcare training as well as a Disney Orientation. They are also trained in CPR and basic first aid. 

    There is a program called Rider Switch where the adult who waits with the younger children while their party rides the attraction and then ride without having to wait in line.  However, if your party has only one adult, you won't be able to take advantage.

    Enjoy your vacation.
