Family vacations are a great time to reconnect, have some fun and unwind. They are also the perfect opportunity for Mom and Dad to have a little alone time or a date night within the Walt Disney World resort.
Children’s Activity Centers located at select resorts throughout Walt Disney World offer a supervised play environment for kids. The centers offer a range of activities including games, crafts, movie watching and even dining! This is a fantastic child care option because it allows your children an opportunity to make friends and have some fun while you are enjoying some quiet time.

The Details

The hours for the centers vary; with the majority being open from 5:30 PM- 12:00 midnight.

Children ages 3-12 are welcome (ages 4-12 for Camp Dolphin) and must be fully potty trained.

Kid-friendly dinners are included in the cost of care and parents can make dining selections upon checking into the center. There is also an evening snack offered at 10:00 PM for those staying into the later hours.

Children’s Activity Centers are located at the following resort hotels:

Simba’s Cubhouse at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
Never Land Club at Disney’s Polynesian Resort
Cub’s Den at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
Sandcastle Club at Disney’s Beach Club Resort
Camp Dolphin at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel

While reservations are not required for most of the locations, except Camp Dolphin, they are highly recommended….especially during peak seasons.

What is the Cost?

The cost of childcare is $11.50 per hour/per child with a 2 hour minimum; Camp Dolphin is $10 per hour/per child with no minimum.

Free Childcare

If you dine at one of Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort’s signature restaurants, you can enjoy free childcare! For each adult entrée purchased at bluezoo, Il Mulino or Shula’s Steakhouse, one child will be admitted for 2 hours of complimentary childcare at Camp Dolphin.

What about a relaxing spa day with your sweetie? The Mandara Spa at the Dolphin resort boasts a wide range of salon and spa services. For each spa treatment booked that is 75 minutes in length or more, Camp Dolphin will admit one child for 2 hours.

Have you ever used one of Disney’s Children’s Activities Centers? Will you be planning a date night for your next trip?
