DVCinfo has confirmed with Disney sources that Children’s Activity Centers located at Walt Disney World DVC resorts will be closing for good effective July 31, 2018:

Children’s Activity Centers provide secure, supervised childcare for children ages 3 to 12.  Children can enjoy arts, crafts, movies, toys, video games, and board games.  Dinner, snacks, and themed activities are also provided.

According to Disney, the service is not being utilized enough to maintain it , and they are “seeking other ways to offer other services to children under 12.”  In-room Childcare Services is still available, provided by Kid’s Night Out.  DVC Community Halls will still be available at DVC resorts as well.

Have you ever used this service? Will you miss the availability of this offering?

  1. I did not even know this service was available. We are always keeps my a lookout for hotels that offer this service. How old does the child have to be to utilize this service?

  2. My son will greatly miss this service. We are AP holders, and we were so grateful that we discovered this service. My son has SPD and ADHD, so the parks are overwhelming, and he does not like a lot of the thrill rides. He asked to go to the activity center during our last trip so that my husband and I could go on the rides that we like. We are utilizing this service in March, and instead of going to the parks, my husband and I are going to get a date night that we normally never get. I think knowing that this service is going away will make this visit even more special. I would never pay for an in-room babysitter, it would not be appealing to my son. He is an only child, so it is nice that he has “friends” to play with while he is there. It is also a nice downtime for him.
