    ^Wine tasing? Sounds like an electrifying experience. Where do they have that on the property? j/k

    This fact about the Premium AP has always irritated me. I have always thought they should make a Premium (no block out days) Child's AP. My 9 year old doesn't need free parking and 15% off merchandise because when he goes, he's with me and I get that on my own PAP.

    That could very well be the case.

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.
    Yes and yes! Parents like you and I are rare and few. But we are out there. And even after 18, I'm sure you still "feel" responsible for them. Gotta love being a parent!


    Overall, I think Disney made a right move implementing this new policy

    Sounds like a good policy to me. There are a lot of local low life APs who dump their uncivilized kids at the park.

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

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out...
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    I think it's a crying shame. I have great memories of exploring the park with my best friend when we were 10. We wore our best dresses and were dropped off at the gate. Uncle Wally signed us in and after we were done watching his show we had run of the park.

    I think we don't expect enough from children these days. Too many parents are freaked out about possible worst case scenarios and the fear-mongering on television. Common sense should prevail.

    I guess she is about to learn the hard way that Disneyland is not a day care.

    It did, hence the new policy.

    I don't have cable so the getting freaked out about the news isn't an issue for me. I think a lot of it has to do with remembering exactly how I acted at that age and I wasn't the most well-behaved kid in the world. Not too mention that, as other people have stated already, kids were a lot more respectful and raised an entirely different way back then. Plus even though you were "on your own" your uncle was still in the park performing so if there was any kind of emergency I'm sure he would be able to respond.

    trust me, I expect a lot from my daughter and she's only five; but dropping her off at age 10 to let her run around the park alone is not something I would do.

    I don't know of any "major incident" that happened. But I can imagine if a 7 or 8 year kid gets hurt some how and has to go to first aid. Then they have to call the kid's parent and the parent answers, "I'm at work, it will take me an hour to get there." That can't be too good for DL or the kid. It's bad enough if that happens to a teenager, but, in my mind, so much worst for a little kid.

    The parental arrival time is probably no worse than for a kid in school, but at least at school, everybody knows the parent is not close. I think at Disney, people expect the parents to be close. At least in the park.

    Also at school, the people know the kid and (I think more importantly) the kid knows the adults. The kid most likely won't feel as alone. If it happened at DL, then everybody is a stranger.

    youo also have to look how long it would take not just to get to Disneyland but the amount of time it would to actually get inside Disneyland. What if you don't have an AP and your kid does? Do you get a special pass to get him?

    Nope that is why there is a guest drop off & pick up zone off Harbor Blvd. The parent would simply have their kid meet them in this small parking lot to pick him or her up.

    So they will just have an injured kid limp out to the guest drop off area?

    Obviously not. I must have missed the part about the kid being injured.
