I'm very Watchful of kids, and I think I posted this before, but one time I was with my nieces and nephews watching them like a hawk (yes EVILQueen) and I turned my head for two seconds, and I looked back, my youngest nephew was already about 30 feet away walking rhe other direction. Even the most watchful parent, uncle, aunt, grandparent....etc., looks away for a second. Doesn't make us bad people...just human! - DisneyDavidEMT  2835.9 #59 8:22PM

I was the lost child once, when i as like 1. My mom and sister went to the bathroom, and my dad and I were in the Main Street Locker room. My dad took me out of the stroller to straighten it up, and I crawled into the open locker we were using, and it closed behind me. And that is why I was a child who wore a leash/harness... - fletheartsdisney  1424.7 #140 9:16PM
Personally I like to leave Brooklynne home with her daddy so I don't have to worry about it! Geez who wants to take their kid to Disneyland?! Crazy people, I tell ya! - Deltachiq  1244.4 #164 10:31PM
If you just leave her strapped in her stroller while you go on rides, you won't lose her! I love stroller parking! - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1632 10:45PM
Tried to do that once. I was told by the group I was with I wasn't allowed. She was sleeping for goodness sakes and it really wanted to ride RSR opening week. It was only a 240 minutes wait. She would have slept through most of it! - Deltachiq  1244.4 #164 10:50PM
Lol! Last time I borrow children.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3617 10:50PM

*sigh* evilqueen, are you serious? Even the most watchful parent can lose a child in a place as busy as Disneyland. We once lost my lil cousin at AdventureDome in Las Vegas while he walked just a few feet away from us to throw something away in the trash can. He was five at the time and started following a family that was also wearing AZ Dbacks shirts that day. These things can happen to even the most responsible parents. - KermitFan13  658.1 #353 8:28PM

Usually if you have to start a sentence with the word "sorry," you should just keep your mouth shut. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #232 9:28PM
Yes, watchful parents CAN lose their kids. Children are small and quick. They can be gone in the blink of an eye. I thought I lost my babycakes once at Gymboree Play and Music. A gated in facility. I only looked away for one second. My heart dropped. Luckily I found him rather quickly. It can happen as quick as a car accident when closing your eyes to sneeze for one second. - aidensmama  340.3 #792 10:30PM

I got lost once after a parade in one of those crazy concert like crowds. It was at night and pretty scary. My phone was dead but I waited in the same spot like a good kid and eventually my wife found me - phillip...rocks  1595.0 #127 9:38PM
You guys need to have a meeting spot like my hubby and I do! We always meet in the hub if we're separated. LOL Also don't forget how helpful the CM's are! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.7 #50 11:09PM
As I always tell my kids, if you're not within tackling distance then you're too far. - Hagrid  299.8 #1024 7:41PM
Never lost one at Disneyland but did at Great America. It was terrifing. Took 45 min to find him on the other side of the park - GoofyMomma  196.8 #2174 7:33PM
And to make matters worse, you were at Great America πŸ˜‚ - Slotherini  1079.8 #203 7:36PM

no worst part was it wasn't even my child. - GoofyMomma  196.8 #2174 9:05PM
Scary to imagine! Thank goodness everything turned out ok. I'm in favor of the leash, but my wife not so. Having 2 is manageable, but 3+ can be tough! We only have 2 and that's hard enough! - snappy  480.3 #500 8:06PM
About 13 years go we lost my son at disney world He was 5 at the time. We came off pirates and stop to look he kept going.It was very scary. He was at the lost and found a cm took him there. He told them his mom and dad go lost. - Disneyforlife  243.3 #1559 8:07PM
Lol! Yeah, that's exactly what she told me... - minnieluv  108.8 #3617 8:11PM
LoL. I guess that is the reason why they have a sign outside of City Hall about lost parents looking for their kids. - KermitFan13  658.1 #353 8:30PM
My parents lost me as a kid when I was 6. My brothers and their baseball team (so about 12 boys) came up with the wonderful plan to play hide-&-seek on tom sawyer island. When it was time for lunch i was still hiding on the island alone. As I was crying my eyes out a CM was nice enough to play patty cake with me till my parents, about 10 minutes later came and got me. - CMallyg92  108.7 #3620 8:33PM
My niece got lost in toontown & was found by the Matterhorn a few years ago. The CM were great though!! They found her, thank the good Lord!! - Superspacemountainfan  94.0 #3872 8:58PM

My sister lost her 5 yo. She was waiting in line while her hubby went to get something. They each thought the other had him, when her hubby returned 10 min later they relized what happened and went into panic mode! Found him 10 min later at a gift shop near by with a cast member! - julietyler76  8.4 #13605 9:08PM
It is scary Lil E walked away from Mom near Jedi academy when she was 3 or 4. Fortunately they found each other - E-Ticket  1642.3 #122 9:09PM
PS. I told the kids to find a CM an tell them they are lost if they got lost. They never had to though - E-Ticket  1642.3 #122 9:11PM
That is my worst nightmare! So scary for you! I lost my oldest when he was 2 at a subway. I went to pay and he ran out the door. I caught him half way down the block! It's been backpack leashes ever since. Yes I'm "that" parent. I'll take the nasty looks over the missing child any day! - Disneycrazymom  137.8 #3070 11:29PM
No matter how watchful you are, it can happen. When my oldest was about 2 or 3, my mother and I took her to the state fair where they had a Disney show going on. After the show, they had a huge area where they had bouncy stuff for the kids. I literally turned to my mother, handed her the diaper bag, turned back, and my daughter was gone! She disappeared in a matter of seconds! (She went running to climb on a bouncy, I guess, and was eventually returned to us by an employee because she still had her shoes on.) It was the scariest two hours of my life. Okay, it probably only lasted a few minutes, but it FELT like hours. A child can wander/run off in a matter of seconds, no matter how watchful the parent!! - jmgphx  323.1 #880 8:17AM
I watch my daughter like a hawk - ScooterMike  1963.0 #98 7:25PM

Nope. But I can imagine how terrifying that was. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #161 7:28PM
We thought we lost my nephew at the Halloween party! I've never seen my brother so freaked out and panicked in all my life! So sorry that happened to you but glad you had a good outcome. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.7 #50 7:34PM
I panicked..for a second I even forgot what she was wearing...good thing I always take a picture as soon as w get there.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3617 9:40PM

We lost our youngest once. We stopped at Grizzly Bear Rapids to check the stand-by time. We were all there one second, and the next our four year old was gone. My husband and daughters searched, and I ran to get help from a CM. Our rule is to sit down as soon as they realize they are lost, but a helpful stranger took him by the hand, and led him to Paradise Pier where they handed him off to a security CM. He was gone for about 15 minutes. Longest 15 of my life!! - mrstoad  256.1 #1409 7:46PM
I too have a "in case you get separated from me" plan, and remind the kids everytime before we walk into the parks...I just never thought I would have to actually use it...I am glad all went well for you too - minnieluv  108.8 #3617 8:08PM
Yes, the plan my brother uses is to stay in place. I don't know if either of you are familiar with the Halloween party but they have taped lines on the pavement of the park for trick or treating and they go back-and-forth and zigzag and it's really easy to not know which direction you should go because guests have been walking on the tape all night and that's how my nephew got confused. Fortunately we just went backwards in line and found him standing there about 7 yards or so from us. His Mom kept praising him for doing exactly what she always taught him. But still you don't know if someone could've snatched him. Scary thoughts go through your mind. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.7 #50 8:53PM
I like your plan of what to do in case it happens. I will Need to remind my youngest, well, for that matter, the older one too! Before our next trip. Thats where cell phones are handy for the older Ones though. The ability to text in the parks is a God send! - MeridaFan  4255.0 #43 9:22PM
Nope, but we use a child harness on very busy days when my dd refuses to hold hands. We get criticized heavily for this but better than a lost child. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1457 8:00PM
Agree - minnieluv  108.8 #3617 8:03PM
If you ever get a chance to watch modern family when they went to Disneyland that was a huge part of the episode. My husband I always smile when we see a child on a "tether". That's what they called it in the show. So sweet. Good for you. No one knows your child better than you and what's best for them. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.7 #50 8:59PM
My little one is fast and thinks it's a game to run away from me. She's at the independent string willed 3yo faze. Boy I hope it's a faze. lol - CheshireCam  251.1 #1457 9:01PM

Thank you all for making me feel better. I always watch them, especially because they are not mine, but a three year old sure is fast! She knew she did wrong by walking away from me...but I too learned my lesson...never look away! Lol! - minnieluv  108.8 #3617 8:02PM

Thankfully, Disney has an impeccable record of reuniting children and their lost parents. We found my 5 year old cousin in the first aid after losing him by the Matterhorn during a "who's got to go to the bathroom" fiasco. 😁 - bluefairy  643.8 #363 10:05PM
Is it weird that Disneyland is one of the few public places I don't totally freak out about this? I mean, has any kid ever been lost/kidnapped from Disneyland? They're so on top of it. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.7 #177 11:34PM
I guess because they are not mine, I do try to be extra careful, but when you work with children (specially abused children) you never put your guard down, even at the happiest place on earth. They don't check Megan's list before they give you a pass.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3617 7:39AM
When we first visit Disneyland in 2010, there was a group of parents giving out flyers by the entrance to remind parents to be careful that kids can be very easily to get lost in the happiest place on earth. Looked like they had actually lost their own kids there before. This would be the worst nightmare to any parents. - RapunzalK  196.7 #2177 11:36PM
I received similar flyers around that time. Could be different ones, but the ones I got were being distributed as part of a scare tactic used by the union in a bitter dispute over their contract. - SneakyStella  321.9 #887 12:18AM
I have helped many kids find a CM to stay with until the parents find them. I usually have a keen eye to see when a child and parent gets separated and am quick to stop everything I am doing to make sure the child gets to an available CM ASAP. Even after I watch the child to make sure they get reunited. Freaks me out and I'm not a parent. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #491 8:21AM
Nope not yet. - Lelundrial  936.9 #233 8:23AM
During my last trip, I saw about 5 kids over the course of two days trying to find their parents (they all had CMs with them). It seemed like everywhere we went we saw a poor kid lost. - KylaShea  632.7 #369 8:25AM
I lost my son at a large amusement park in Carlsbad. The scariest experience ever! You don't joke about it even 10 years later. - MeridasHair  346.5 #772 8:26AM
I lose stuff everyday. - donnievegas  1132.7 #188 8:27AM
I didn't lose them per say. . . we were on Tom Sawyers Island. My kids knew not to leave the island without me, so I knew where they were. They also stick to together, so they weren't "alone". I'm 5'8" and have a little extra meat on the bones, so I don't move well inside the caves. After a couple laps on the island I did find them, together happy and playing, but I was on "high alert" mode thinking all the horrible what ifs. - GoofyMom77  1142.4 #185 9:03AM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  103.5 #3717 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  11186.7 #9 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  4485.4 #39 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  1293.0 #156 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  301.1 #1016 6:54PM
Next August I will be posting wait times I know it will help pass the time in line but with 15 to 20 of us should go pretty well thanks to you and all the people here on MW - mjpdisney67  84.4 #4078 10:10AM
I'll never catch Winnie, but I have 6 more days to get to number 2. And then my steady decline until my next visitπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ - Mouse28  946.6 #231 9:26AM
You can do it! I did 100 in an evening Thursday! - redsoxcarlos  5279.8 #27 4:26PM
I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1045.7 #212 1:19PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  11186.7 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10818.0 #11 9:55PM

This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14283 10:12AM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.6 #231 9:06AM
