Has anyone gone here with a baby?
please post all comments!
My situation is the following:
we really would like to go and this would be the only opportunity to go, but we dont have anyone to take care of our son (who will be 17 months)
so our Q: is :
is it worth it if we take him or not to go at all because we will not enjoy it with him.
is there Baby sitting service there?
if anyone has any experience in this field please share...

I don't think it's worth going or is safe to go to MLE or BOB with a baby. 
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
