    Do parks have ID bracelets for kids?

    At Holiday World in southern Indiana, when you first walk in the gates you can get plastic ID bracelets for your children, on which you can write their names, your name and your mobile phone number, in case they get lost.

    Do the theme parks within WDW have such things?

    Thanks

    No, but you could always make your own up, if that might help you or make you feel a bit better.

    Having bracelets for kids would be cost prohibitive at WDW. They are not into offering service they would concider "baby sitting", reason why they have banned some kids off DTD who were being dropped off by parents on a regular basis.

    Yea, like TDLFAN said, Disney is not a babysitting service. And the closest thing to a bracelet that WDW gives out are for Extra magic hours, and thats a different story.

    Um...dudes, who said anything about babysitting? I'm not talking about dropping my kids off at DTD or MK or anywhere else. I'm talking about a simple precaution to safeguard against the remote possibility that one of my kids gets lost. The same kind of simple safeguard that most families do when they determine a central meeting place to go to if they get separated. Sure it's rare, and you do everything you can to keep track of your kids, but it can happen.

    Wolfy999's snide remark aside, having ID and contact info on the child is a great way to allow any adult who comes across your child to be able to contact you right away. Your 3- or 4-year-old might not be able to go to a central meeting place or remember your mobile phone number.

    I'm really surprised Disney doesn't offer these. I don't think supplying those cheap little disposable bracelets like the kind you get at hospitals to parents would exactly break Disney's budget. It certainly doesn't seem to hurt Holiday World, and they aren't nearly as rich as Disney.

    Anyway, for any of you conscientious parents who are interested, these look ideal:

    Um... dude... Wolfys remark was not a snide comment. She merely offered the suggestion that rather than rely on a amusement park to provide them for you, that you could always come up with something on you own... which is exactly what you did by providing a link to a product that does exactly the same thing.

    Well, its not like a chuck e cheese, you are really responsible for your own children. CMs are all over so if anyone ever gets lost then they can find one of the CMs. A good idea would be to meet up is anyone gets lost at a certain spot (like in front of the castle)
    I was thinking for a second about walkie talkies but thats not exactly convenient.
    Other than that its not like disney stamps your arm so they know who are with, nor do they have any special bracelets if someone gets lost. You could always get a bracelet and put the contact information on it, its not like disney has to do that

    You should be responsible for your kids even at Chuck E Cheese.

    Well, what i was getting at was that WDW and places like that are totally different.
    Chuck e cheese, pretty much kids are running around every which way, and you really need a parent with the matching id to leave.
    And its kinda impossible to handle your kids at chuck e cheese.

    WDW is very different. It is a large area that thousands of people are at, its an open area (unlike chuck e cheese, where the only way you can get out is with a parent with the matching id stamp) so basically a stranger can walk up to a lost kid, grab him or her by the arm and drag said child out of the park without much question. But on the other hand at CEC, everyone has a unique id stamp, so a stranger cant actually walk away with a kid.

    I know that somkeone can still find a way around the systen but my point is that you cant really follow your kids around in CEC the entire time, but dont have alot to fear because there is one exit and groups leaving are required to have matching stamps

    Re: Do parks have ID bracelets for kids?

    The answer to your question, Dan, is that the Theme Parks Guest Relations have little ID Tags to attach to your childs clothing, in the event they become lost. The tag contains areas where you can affix your Address, Local Address, Cell Phone number and Home Phone Number.

    Its not a bracelet, but they do have something to help you out

    Glad I could answer your question

    Is the address so you can mail the kid home if all else fails?

    Along with what was said before, Disney stresses many times that if a child gets lost, they immediately find a Cast Member. To me, that is the best possible thing that can happen. If you tell your child to find a person who works there, then all you have to do is find a CM and the two of you see each other quite fast.

    Re: Do parks have ID bracelets for kids?

    Let me say straight off that I don't work in an amusement or theme park (although some would say that's exactly what London Underground is.) We have strict guidelines re lost children. Firstly you try to ensure that any child is dealt by a female where possible, you don't give 'em candy or drinks except water and when making any announcement you NEVER use the child's name. You merely give a description of the clothing and the sex and age (or age approximation) of the child. I can see why Disney say to tell the child to go to a CM - it's the safest route. Likewise if you loose a child go to a CM. I really don't think the answer is to "dog tag" a child. As for real young children why not use "reins". I'm horrified at the number of kids that are allowed to wander in public places without proper supervision.
    Now I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic !
