Pinocchio's Workshop

Has anyone used Pinocchio's Workshop for childcare for an evening? DH and I are considering a Napa Rose dinner on our upcoming DL trip, but we know the kids won't have an interest. We've used childcare at WDW before (Wilderness Lodge) and it has been great. However, I'm a bit concerned my older child will not be thrilled with it -- he will be 10 later this summer. Anyone have any experience with this service with older kids? Given we are in DL for only a few days I feel a bit guilty taking an evening for an adults only dinner. But I know one son will love to go to the "kid's club" and I would love to try Napa Rose, if possible. Any comments are appreciated!

It should be fine for them. There may or may not be a lot of kids there with them. Our daughter went when we were there last September and there were only 2 other kids there that night. They were all 5 or under, but it could just as easily have been that they were all 10 or over. They have different activities to do. Worst case scenario, your kids end up watching Disney movies the whole night because that's all they want to do. Whatever the case, I trust PW. We liked the staff and it was clean. I encourage you to take the night for yourself!

They have to be 5 to go to Pinocchio's workshop.
