    Or, it could be parents who are sitting on the bech outside the place letting their kids run around the playgym for awhile.

    I don't like babysitting being a job at DL, nor do I like a-hole APs, but there is no proof that this is the case.

    Well, I'm at Disneyland, don't people here take care of my kids?

    It's a shame that society no longer takes responsiblity.
    (from the sounds of it, they've done it before, get away w/ it was prob. blamed on someone else.)

    There are plenty of good families and kids out there.
    The minority of this problem however just seems to get bigger and bigger w/ time (it's called kids having kids and wanting to "be cool" around them--not being that parent that can't hang w/ the best of them SEEM to be a bigger concern vs. teaching your kids what's right and wrong).

    I actually thought it was someone alerting us that Disney was charging for bridge crossing in DCA. They charge for games, what's to stop them from charging to use the Redwood Creek Challange?

    Finally someone else who feels this way.
    I've said it many times and I get crap from people.

    It's not true for all...but it's prob. more true than we want to believe.

    Unfortunatley I agree, because it sure sounds like they had time to put a system together.

    I'd love to know what security did with them. Hopefully they're banned from the park for a while... while they grow up and figure out how to mug adults out in the real world.

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I think I know children like this, and I hope security notified their juvenile probation officers!

    Re: Redwood Creek Challenge; $1 to cross bridge

    Before notifying security, I would have cornered the kids and offered, "$50 for me NOT to tell security what you're doing. Pay up NOW."

    Little punks like that need to proposition the "wrong" person and get a response they've never expected.

    Unfortunately there is a group of kids out there today who have no respect for authority figures of any kind. If I see a kid behaving badly, I will tell the parents and if there are no parents present, I will tell the kid stop or no. When I was growing up, being told that by ANY adult would have stopped the behavior in its tracks. Now you (or even security) get "I don't have to listen to you, you're not my parent". I've seen 6 and 8 year olds mow down toddlers while playing with no parents in sight. I was then chewed out by the parents of the boys for telling them to stop AND by the mother of the little ones for picking them up and taking them to the managers office because they were sitting on the floor alone crying. The mother wanted to call the police on me for attempting to kidnap her kids! Thank heaven the manager had enough common sense to prevent that.
    A bit of evil lurks in your heart, but you hide it well.
    In some ways, you are the most dangerous kind of evil.

    I remember working in Chip n' Dale's Acorn Crawl. We used to have a manual buzzer and, after about ninety seconds or so, we'd press the buzzer to signal the kids to get out so the next group could come in. (Actually getting the kids to leave was its own challenge, but I digress.)

    Occasionally, we would shuffle the kids out and one poor kid would end up being lost because his parents had simply dumped him off there thinking we were going to babysit him for a couple of hours while they went on other rides.

    Um, no, it doesn't work that way.

    I would have told the little punks it'll cost them all the money they made for me not to break their tiny necks. To quote a line from The Goonies "kids suck"
