Staying Off-Site & Using Disney Childcare Centers?

I just came across a blog post at Touring Plans that says you can use Disney Childcare Centers (Neverland Club, Sandcastle Club, etc) even if you aren't staying at a Disney Resort. I had always thought those were only for people staying onsite.

Was I wrong, or did something change? Or is this blog info incorrect, or out of date?

Just wondering because we have a split stay coming up (onsite and offsite) and we were thinking of using a Child Care Center during the onsite stay, but might also do it during our offsite time, if we can do that. That would actually open up a whole new world for us!

Anyone can make a reservation to use the Kids Clubs, you do not have to stay on-site.

If you have a package reservation for your on-site stay, you should get a coupon to save 15% (I think it's 15%) off the cost of the childcare. Last I checked, it was $11.50 per hour per child. Kids have to be at least 3 to attend and must be fully potty-trained (no pull-ups and no assistance needed).

We took our kids to Sandcastle Club at Beach Club a couple of years ago and they had a great time. We had dinner on the Boardwalk and went to World Showcase for shopping and Illuminations. Our 2 kids were there 4 hours and with the discount it was about $80.
