Does Disney Offer Official Babysitters or Nannies?

All of the sites listed above are technically not official Disney subsidiaries, companies, or groups.

In other words, you would almost certainly be hiring them in addition to whatever your Walt Disney World or Disneyland vacation package includes.

With that in mind, you might wonder: “Does Disney World have babysitters?” Or, “Are there babysitters at Disneyland?”

These are both great questions. Here are the answers:

Are there babysitters at Disney World and Disneyland? Childcare services are offered by Disney at the theme parks. They have several services: In-Room Babysitting, Lost Children, and More Fun for Your Little Ones.

In-Room Babysitting

Disney World writes, “Independent childcare provider Kid’s Nite Out offers one-to-one babysitting in the comfort of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room.”

Lost Children

This is not to be confused with Peter Pan’s Lost Boys! 😉

In all seriousness, a lost child can be a very distressing event. Here is what Disney World says: “A child who becomes separated from his or her parents while in the park will be escorted by a Cast Member to the Baby Care Center.”

More Fun for Your Little Ones
