One day during my exit from Disney World's Magic Kingdom, I was waiting on the Boat Dock for the Ferry to arrive. People are usually quite orderly, and respectful of each other. However, sometimes toddlers are allowed to walk, rather than ride in strollers, or be held by a parent. On this particular day, I was standing near the gate near the edge of the water, when I saw a little girl about the age of two, almost crawl, completely under the gate. A few seconds more, and she easily could have crawled a few more feet, and been in the Seven Seas Lagoon. I remember I was walking toward her direction, when I gave a gasp, and her dad, quickly pulled her back under the gate. An accident was definitely averted. I walked away. Didn't say anything to the parent. The little girl was now behind me, crying. I believe she got a good scolding. Probably a slap on the bottom. I can't say. I didn't turn around, and witness her punishment. I just remember being thankful that she hadn't made her way totally under that gate, or she very surely could have drowned. It was a very scary moment, for me, and I was just glad that the child was alright.
Have you ever had a scary moment at the parks, that turned out O.K.?
