Disney’s Best and Worst Babysitters

It’s every parent’s nightmare.  Moms are all dolled up and dads are more dapper than ever.  Then the phone rings.  The babysitter cancelled. The magical night is ruined.

We’ve all been here.  Whether you were able to get another sitter, grandma came to the rescue or you sadly had to cancel your plans, the whole situation is kind of a rite of passage for parents.  Now, imagine if you will, a babysitting service that offers to save the night by offering some of Disney’s famous characters as babysitters?!?

All are pre-screened and fingerprinted. All of them passed background checks and some of them even passed the infant/child CPR class on their first try!  Imagine that!  Would you sign up for their services?  Imagine paying Merida to sit with your kids as she tells them of her adventures in Scotland. Or better yet, how about a night of wise wisdom from Sebastian from The Little Mermaid?

Since we can’t drop off the kids at the Disney Parks anymore (seriously, who does that?), here are 19 of the  best and worst Disney babysitters for your babysitting needs. There are some Disney characters who are perfect for the job while others are forever stuck on the reject list.
