BEST KEPT SECRETS!

I have heard all too often about the meals provided at the most popular disney resturants but I want to hear about your favorite "lesser known" eatery! Has anyone ever used the kids night out baby sitting program?

Weve talked about it, but never pulled the trigger. Since my parents go with us... we technically dont need to use it. I would assume its a great program. Ive heard good things about it.

Hmm..best kept secrets..if I tell then they won't be secrets! Ha, just kidding.

Mine is a counter service..Tangerine Cafe. This place is over-looked because I think most people "don't want to try Moroccan food" but oh my goodness it is delicious! The Chicken Schwarma Platter is my favorite. It's thin sliced chicken covered in red onions and some sort of amazing sauce. I love it. They also have lamb...but..I don't like lamb so I don't get that.

I have heard great things about it as well! However, My daughter is special needs now ( diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in october) so I am a little hesitant on booking it! I know that if we did do it she would be already in bed for the night before the sitter arrives but still!

Yeah... that is a tough call then. I would say if your hesitant... give them a call and talk to them. They can let you know what can be done, and if your still wary... then its up to you. But I would say at least call, but totally understand where your at.

Thanks I will have to give them a call and at least see if they can give me peace of mind!

I have friends who have used the sitter program multiple times with no regrets and/or complaints. They too have children with special needs (Celiac Disease) and have had ZERO problems. Don't be afraid, those sitters are trained and certified to handle each and every need. They watch your children in your own hotel room as well. They are safe! awesome

Thanks SOOO Much!! That really gives me peace of mind! My husband and I haven't had the chance to go on a REAL DATE since she was diagnosed So one night while we are away I really want to plan an EXTREMELY ROMANTIC evening where we don't have to worry about how the person that is watching our children is handling her illness!

Karrie, I would say go for it too. While we do not have any experience with Disney's babysitting services we do have lots of experience raising a diabetic child. Our youngest son was 3 when he was diagnosed.

He is now grown, married and has a 2 1/2 year old daughter. It will get easier with time. I wish I could say you will stop worrying but as a mother that will never happen. How old is your daughter. We were told that it is usually easier for the child to deal with the younger they are when diagnosed.

SHE or should I say THEY turned 7 this past saturday! And that is what everyone tells me ( it's better that it happened now) so that she won't have to wing herself off of eating foods that she has eaten her whole life!

I can't speak for Disney World..but when I was a teenager I was on the official "baby sitter list" for Disney's Hilton Head Resort and I had to go through the ringer just to be put on a list. I wasn't even an "employee" of Disney. They had to contact 3 references and do a background check & I was told multiple times that if I had one complaint I was off the list. I imagine they are just as as strict with their CM's.

Hi Karrie, I'm scrappy's DH. Just found this: http://allears.net/pl/diabetes.htm , Dont know how much it will help, and you may have checked it out already, but figured I'd post it anyway. When was your daughter diagnosed?
