I'm really surprised by all the positive reviews. My kids--11,10, 8, 6 and 5 (all boys)--didn't have a bad time, but they didn't have a good time either. We were really glad we picked them up after a couple hours. The 11 yr old and 8 yr old enjoyed the Wii but commented that, "Everything they had to do, we can do at our cousins' house." The 10 yr old was in tears afterward because he was so disappointed. The 6 yr old had the best time, enjoying the crafts. The 5 yr old has autism, so he couldn't say, but his brothers said he just stood around the whole time. I don't know if they were under-staffed or what, but my boys said that the staff were too busy with misbehaving kids to help them learn how to play the video games or to interact with them. They did like the food.
Cons:Not much fun

When we first dropped my son off at Neverland, we felt guilty and worried (ditching the kid at Disney - what horrible parents!) Upon picking up my son, he cried, didn't want to leave, and asked if he could come back and play with Peter Pan again the next night. We've used the club twice since then, and every time my son has a blast. I think it may be a better fit for younger kids - he is 5 and loves the costumes, games and movies. I don't even think it's that expensive, but we're only covering one kid - plus it includes dinner. I certainly recommend it, and we will continue to use it for "Disney Date Night" in the future.
Pros:Conveniently located, happy kid

My 5 year old does not like the food at 'Ohana and we decided to try the childcare one night rather than waste money on food she wouldn't eat. She has never been to a real 'daycare' before so I was a bit apprehensive. But since we would only be 500 yards away, we went for it. I should have never worried, because she LOVED it! She was one of about three kids in there when we picked up, and she told us that she had played dressup, ate some chicken tenders, and was watching a movie while she decorated a paper crown when we came to pick her up. The cost was comparable to what we have paid for drop in childcare at home since then, and included dinner. I think the previous reviewer who was disappointed in the services received had unrealistic expectations. We got exactly what we paid for: someone to watch our daughter for a couple of hours while we had dinner. I didn't expect Mary Poppins, just somewhere clean and safe.
