Some of our best “grown up” memories are at Disney World without kids – just for a night though! I thought I would share a few ways to get away for an adult/couples night out while on vacation with the little ones:
Children’s Activity Centers will keep the kids entertained in a secure and well supervised environment at four resort locations throughout Walt Disney World.
Clubs and locations are: Lilo’s Playhouse at Polynesian Resort, Simba’s Clubhouse at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Sandcastle Club at Beach Club Resort, and Camp Dolphin at Walt Disney’s Dophin Hotel (ages 4-12 here).
In each of these cool clubs, children (ages 3 to 12) can enjoy arts and crafts, video and board games, watch Disney movies, play with a toys, and even make new friends – my son met a new pen pal named Edward from England! They had a blast together!
Themed activities along with dinner, snacks and even some cool crafts/keepsakes make it a truly unforgettable experience they’ll have a hard time not talking about for a long time. Different nightly programming may include: learning about physics by decorating a volcano and watching it explode like a real ones. Decorate cookie with a Disney pastry chef or train like a pirate buccaneer and come face to face with the one and only Captain Hook!
Prices will vary by location: Camp Dolphin and Simba’s Cubhouse have an hourly rate of $15 per child, with a 2-hour minimum. And then Lilo’s Playhouse and Sandcastle Club, charge a flat rate of $55 per child for the duration of the evening. Dinner is included in the cost of the service and parents can order kid-friendly meals for their children at time of check-in. If given early notice, they can accommodate special dietary needs and mealtimes are served at 6:00pm with snacks at 10:00pm. The club hours vary based on each location and advance reservations are recommended for all locations (please note that hey are required for Camp Dolphin).
Please note that activities are subject to change and we will be glad to make reservations for you in advance – up to 180 prior to your trip. Same day walk-ins are also welcome but note that they are based on availability.
Also, Disney offers convenient in-room babysitting as well and we loved this option when our kids were small (4 years and 18 months) because I believed in a strict bedtime and the nanny came to our resort room to stay with the children once I had put them to bed. Ours were easy since they were already asleep but arts and crafts, reading and playing games are among the fun-filled activities for children 6 months to 12 years of age if you would like.
Lastly, if you would just like some down time around the pool without a cost then check out the resort activities for the children. My favorite are the pool parties every afternoon at any of the resorts (weather permitting). And my all time favorite resort for family/kid activities is the Animal Kingdom Lodge – there is so much to do and see there! So let’s get started planning your Disney vacation!
