I know that in WDW if you stay at certain resorts, you can have a babysitter come and stay with the kids so you can have some adult time. But does anyone know if you can arrange for respite care?
My SIL really wants to go to Disney, but my niece has a seizure disorder. Right now they have a nurse come in 3 nights a week to stay with her at night, and respite workers a couple afternoons a week. We were talking about them going to Disney, and while I knew regular babysitters were available, but I wasn't sure if Disney also had nurses or respite workers you could call, or if they could put my SIL in contact with such down there?
You can get in-room sitters through all the resorts. Disney's official contractor is Kids Night Out - 800-696-8105 - They may be able to do respite care, they do have sitters qualified for various special needs. It's probably best that your SIL call and discuss it.
If they can't handle it, check with Fairy Godmothers 407-275-7326 or All About Kids 407-812-9300.
