While Disney World is clearly a place for families, sometimes the adults need some time on their own for a quiet dinner or to enjoy the theme parks at their own pace. Disney will soon open what is possibly the coolest babysitting service ever to make that a reality for more parents.
The Pixar Play Zone will open at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on April 13 and provide a supervised play space featuring characters from Toy Story and The Incredibles.
Themed areas include Bonnie’s Play Room, a living room where kids can take part in Space Ranger Training or join a sing-a-long with Woody and Jessie, and the Radiator Springs Racetrack where you can build your own race car and compete in the Piston Cup Derby. Mrs. and Mr. Incredible will also host a nightly dance party for kids to fully wear themselves out before it time for bed.
It all sounds an awful lot like the popular Oceaneer Club available on Disney Cruise Line, but of course this time there’s a fee.
The Pixar Play Zone is available by reservation for $65 per child. And, this is important, kids must be fully toilet trained to participate. Check-in begins at 5 p.m. and programming will take place from 6 to 10:30 p.m. In addition to games and play time, children will be provided dinner and dessert. Disney’s announcement called this a pilot program, so there’s a possibility this could expand to other locations…or shut down completely if it proves unpopular. Reservations are available by calling 407-824-KIDS.
