Tips for Seeing a Show at Dr. Phillips Center with Kids

Kids will be comfortable thanks to complimentary booster seats.

Just head to the guest services desk on the first floor. You’ll need to present an ID as collateral. These complimentary booster seats are cushioned and relatively easy to carry into the Walt Disney Theater for your show.

There is also an AdventHealth First Aid station on the first floor should you have any medical needs during your night at the theater. Family restrooms are also available making it more comfortable for families, just ask a staff member for the nearest one.

Dress comfortably and show your young theatergoer around the Dr. Phillips Center before the show begins so they get a little energy out and feel familiar with the space.

Lastly, selecting seats near the end of an aisle may make it easier for your family’s night.
