Adult night out?

Recommended Posts

We have a trip planned for June and were planning on taking our adult niece to help watch our 4 kids and give us an adult night out.  She now cannot join us but were looking for a way to salvage our night out to celebrate our 15th anniversary.  Has anyone used the Kid's Nite Out service?  Anyone have another suggestion to accomplish a night out?

My DD went to the kids center at AK lodge and loved it.  We had dinner and drinks at the lodge and when we went to pick her up she didn’t want to leave.  

 

Maybe a local babysitting service could come out to your campsite and watch the kids. Maybe they could take them to the camp fire and movie. While y’all go out for a few hours. 

 

Happy anniversary

Disney used to offer a baby sitting service for the campsite one requirement we did not have was a phone# to be reached, of course this was before cell phones. Not sure they still offer this service or not.

We just used the Kid's Nite Out service tonight and thought I would share the experience.  The lady from Kid's Nite Out showed up right on time.  She had some quick questions about the kids (any allergies, any medications, if they were allowed to watch TV or play on electronics, bed time, meal time, etc.).  Our oldest is 11 and does good being helpful so we also told her that.  So we gave her our numbers and left for our ADR.  We got a text about 30 minutes later from the caregiver says that it was her number and we could contact her if there were any issues.  We got another update about an hour later says everything was going good.  We got back after 4 hours and 45 minutes.  They were all happy and content.  She made some notes on what they did and ate on a carbon copy form so we could see and keep one.  Our two youngest loved that she brought Barbies to play with them.  She also brought some stuff for the kids to make necklaces and the girls made tiaras.  The kids seemed very happy with the experience and it was very weird for us to not have the kids for a little while!  

The service was $29/hr with a 4 hour minimum.  Anything over the 4 hours they charge to the next 15 minutes at the same rate.  There was a fee for them to travel here, but it must have been reasonable because I don't remember it.  They are also allowed to take a tip, but you cannot add it to the fees paid by credit card.  They dont need a firm return time so that was nice to not have to rush to make a specific time.

Overall a good experience and I think we will keep this as an option on future trips.
