  • Why Doesn't Disneyland Offer Baby-sitting?

    The closest service Disney offers to actual child care is merely just a referral for in-room baby-sitting at the hotels? Why doesn't Disney offer anything more?

    I thought the GCH had a kind of child activity center. Maybe not for very young kids, but I thought I heard something of the sorts on one of the official podcasts.

        Yeah, Pinocchio's Workshop is a place where older children can spend some time away from their parents. And, I believe the other Disney hotels offer similar facilities to provide activities for kids.

        I just know of several adult guests who miss nighttime at Disneyland because babies and young children need more sleep.

          "One of your staff touched my daughter inappropriately". $10mil later and that's the end of daycare.

              It seems that there might be a way to offer convenient child care to guests by, perhaps, leasing space to a business that has shallower pockets and a lower profile.

                IMO if you cant watch the kids, dont bring them.

                  I thought Walt Disney built Disneyland as a place for parents and children to enjoy together. It is very un-Disney to all of a sudden establish daycare centers for their guests.

                    Exactly.

                    I thought this was a place where children and adults could have fun together.

                    Personally I would love over 21 nights at Disneyland. No kids, no nonsense.

                      Agreed.

                      Hire a sitter. If your'e coming from far away and have babies, maybe Disneyland isn't the best place to spend your vacation money. If you have babies that want to sleep and you want to see the fireworks.... hold your baby and watch the fireworks.


                      Or they can just have one of these

                        Isn't it better to allow parents to have some time to themselves at night and let the children sleep in a quiet and comfortable bed, instead of a stroller?

                          Being a parent means giving up an incredible amount of time that used to be just for you. If your kids are getting tired and need to go to sleep, its time for you to go home or back to the hotel.

                            I know famlies that bring a family member, such as a teenage nephew or niece, who makes a deal that they understand they are getting to go for "free" in return for some babysitting duties during the trip. This is popular for folks going to Las Vegas, sightsee as a group during the day, then all the kids stay in the room (pizza and movies) while the parents go off to the casinos for some "adult" fun in good dining and gaming.

                              And that staff member would be "Tigger"

                              Seriously though, never thought about it. I could see parents using it so that they could have a nice dinner or something, but too many people would abuse it. Personally, I wouldn't want to visit the parks without my kids, that's what it's all about for me.
                              Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.
