    Re: Do parks have ID bracelets for kids?

    I think it is the parents responsibility to take care of their own children. If the parent wants the child to have an ID bracelet with their mobile number that's fine, but I don't think it's Disney's responsibility to provide it.

    As far as babysitting goes, even though that is probably not what the original poster suggested, that would more likely happen. Parents become complacent(sp) and figure if something happens or my kid wanders off they've got the bracelet on and a cast member will call me.

    Some people think that just because they are at Disney, Disney has to provide everything for their children. Grow up people, you had the little carpet munchers, you keep an eye on them.

    I was going to agree with what Wolfy said here, but apparently you didn't like that answer.

    While another park might do this, Disney does not. They have their own way of helping reunite lost children to their parents or lost parents to their kids via Guest Relations. However, I have seen many parents create their own form of this wristband concept. Either by a little paper around their neck, information inside the bottom of their pin lanyward, etc. it is done from time to time.

    Part of this is liability. If Disney starts giving these out, parents might have a false sense of security and this could open up potiential lawsuits if something happened to a child. Disney would have no way to verify the information is correct.

    You can get ID kits from your local police dept.

    I would also recommend taking a picture of your kid(s) that day either on you camera phone or digital camera, that way you have a current photo and the clothes they were wearing, making it easier to identify them if lost.

    Not at all. Given the litigeous society we have these days there is less likelihood of any accusations of mal-practice. It is done for the child's safety and also that of the employees. Regretably, it is a sad idictment of our society today.

    Just because you are using a statistic doesn't mean it isn't sexism. That would be using these statistics to say they should only hire white cops when they can.

    Re: Do parks have ID bracelets for kids?

    So Mikey, do you always get your WDW child ID everytime you visit the parks? I mean, I am sure they are as easy to get and paste on as those pesky "Happy Birthday" stickers... and we adults would not want you to get lost.

    Re: Do parks have ID bracelets for kids?

    I am not that comfortable with the idea of the id tags. What if someone came up to a lost child and (after reading the tag) says "Hey (insert name) you mommy and daddy told me to take you back to the hotel. I see you are from (insert address here)-me too!"
    Granted that is an extreme example.

    Hmmmmm. I'll certainly grant that it's extreme. :-) But I can't share that concern. Here's why: that's kind of like saying that you're not comfortable with the idea of seat belts. What if the wreck you're in just happens to be one where you get trapped in a burning (or sinking) car and you can't get out because the seat belt gets stuck. The fact is that the vast majority of wrecks are the kinds where having a seatbelt on will save your life. So much so that you're are most certainly much safer with one on than off. (I actually heard this argument, BTW, when the seat belt law was passed here in Kentucky many years ago.)

    By the same token, the vast majority of the time, if a child gets lost, it would be very helpful to have some form of ID on him/her with your name and mobile phone number. The chances that your lost child would run into a psycho child abductor in the middle of the Magic Kingdom are so slim as to be negligible...hardly something to raise concerns about the safety of having ID on your child.

    Fear of child abductions are a product of media influence: the way that TV and newspapers highlight every single extreme case gives us an out-of-proportion fear of something that is actually extremely rare. On top of that, most child abductions are perpetrated by someone who knows the child (often a family member). Rarely are they the psycho stranger that we see in thriller movies.


    This has probably been the most bizarre thread I've ever come across. It started out with such a simple question. Thank you, SaneVoice, for answering it, BTW.

    Re: Do parks have ID bracelets for kids?

    Then why not just put your cellphone number on the bracelet and leave everything else blank?

    im pretty sure the cellphone idea was stated in the original post.
    So, you'd rather have this perv know EVERYTHING about the child, at least having the cellphone number and leaving everything else blank is safer. And as stated before, the chance of the bracelet being use against you is less likely then it to be used in your favor tyvm.
