    I just mean that this policy would still allow a group of teens to wander parent free- I am sure they are better behaved at DL than at your local Six Flags.

    I've seen what groups of teens do at amusement parks- just would hate to see it at DL.

    Hopefully- but you know how kids can be when they know they don't have anyone watching them-

There is nothing stopping a parent or guardian from entering the park with their kids and then turning around and leaving after 20min leaving the kids inside the park for however long they want to be there.

    The only thing they can do is make special wristbands for 14 and under kids, or something.
    what will happen is in the links i posted, it was said in the orange county register link that if a CM see's a 14 and under at the park with out a adult or guardian they will get approached and then the parents or guardian will be called...

    Re: CONFIRMED! Disney changes admission policies for teens and tweens.

    While I think this is a good move, the age cut-off for adult tickets needs to change accordingly. As it currently stands, Disney is effectively saying people between age 10-13 have to pay full price to get in, yet they can't get in without an adult present.

    Also, logistically, changing the age of adult passes from 10 to 14 helps to better enforce this rule. Rather than having to have Cast Members try to guess their age based on appearance (an unreliable practice at best) it's just as simple as turning away anyone who has a child's ticket without an accompanying adult.

    Or instead or raising the adult ticket age limit to 14 maybe they can go back to what they used to do years ago and bring back Junior priced tickets. Have an I between price range for guests age 10 or 11 to 14. This way Disney isn't losing too much money and the guest won't have to pay quite as much.

    I do think it will force families to have to find a new childcare option if they have been using Disneyland as a default summer camp/babysitter.

    Plain and simple, kids don't spend money like adults do! This is what DL is all about nowadays, no bucks, no Buck Rodgers!

    I don't see what the big deal is these kids couldn't go see a PG-13 movie like Jack the Giant Slayer without supervision why the heck should they be allowed to roam around freely at a major amusement park? I can't believe this rule is barely being implemented.

    Plain and simple....parents need to start being responsible for their kids and stop using Disneyland as a babysitter. There are plenty of other things you can do to teach your kids responsibility, letting them roam Disneyland alone is not the place to do it. Until your son or daughter turn 18 YOU as a parent are responsible for them; anything they do or any trouble they get into is a direct reflection of how people will view you as a person and a parent. That's just the way it is, whether you like it or not.

    As a father of a 5 year old I am glad that the rule is in place. I wont be letting her go on her own until she is old enough to drive. (If she wants to go with friends and their family then I see nothing wrong with it, but on her own with just her friends at 14? nah, go find something better to do)

    I think this is a case of a few rotten apples causing the park to implement this policy. It is not the only place where parks play babysitter as others have said. I did the trainer for a day program last year at Animal Kingdom and I was told that many parents pay the $400 to leave their kid with the trainers while they go off and do wine tasing in the wine country. The kids usually do not want to participate which makes for a bad day for the trainers that literally have to entertain the kids. It is also not any fun for the kids who were literally dumped there. At least at DL they have rides but what CM wants to be chasing after kids all day not to mention all the adult guests who have to deal with any obnoxious kids.
