I used to make fun of parents that put their kid on a leash. Now I am one! Trust me - this is a "must have" in DL for toddlers looking to go AWOL from the stroller! Glad my little man likes his hipster lion leash!

Do they make a double one for child and husband?😜 - PrincessAuroraMomma  601.7 #386 1:46PM

We had to use a strap on one kid, one time. My mom (grandma) was going to fly with him from Ca to Ohio. She had to go thru Chicago airport. He was only 2. We just told him it was to hold on to grandma, so she didn't get lost in the airport. It was a big job to keep an eye on her, but he was a big boy, and we knew he wouldn't lose her if he put the strap on his wrist and hers. He loved his strap. Felt so empowered. Those grandmas are quick you know, get lost easily. - Sugarbuzz  324.8 #854 8:14AM
Love the reverse psychology! - DisneyDawn  419.2 #583 8:29AM
I have a bunch of little tricks like that with raising 3 kids. My other favorite was at the checkout line with all the candy at kid eye level. I told the same kid that was "Oooolddddd candy, and mama would get him new candy." He grew up never asking for candy or throwing a tantrum in the store for candy (cereal). Every now and then when he wasn't with me, I brought home new candy. He would tell his little brother and sister that it was old and mama would get new... I can still hear his little voice 28 yrs later. - Sugarbuzz  324.8 #854 1:40PM
It's not a leash! It's a child safety tether.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  706.0 #314 11:13PM

One time my hubby was walking our dogs and we had the harness on our son and it was funny cuz our dogs were pulling the leashes and our son was pulling on his. πŸ˜‚ Sorry had to be there. - dumbbunny  627.7 #366 11:20PM

For the record I used one ;) - PinkElephants  745.7 #301 11:25PM
As long as your a responsible person. I hate when they first came out. Had some kids leash wrapped around my legs, because some parent didn't want to pay attention to their kid. I have not nor would i ever use one.There it my rant for the issue. - mlatour  374.7 #663 11:29PM

Hey it keeps your child safe and that is what counts. My son was more then a hand full and would run away for fun. We used a monkey backpack and tether when we would be in the parks all the time. - JediMickey714  12.8 #10227 10:53AM
I think this is how you do it. Keep the leash as a back up... but hold your child's hand to keep him with you. At least they made it a backpack and not just a straight leash to harness. Even the best parents might have that split second where the kid might wander off without warning - and they'd wish they had that leash. Personally, I don't like it, especially when it's use as the primary source of "babysitting" their kid. But if a parent wants to use the leash as that extra safety, go for it. Some kids need it and some kids don't. But no need to judge the parents who use it. I use one..... but not at the Parks.... ;) - LaTruce  2367.2 #76 11:43AM

If a leash is good enough for my dog, it will be good enough for my future kid!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  684.7 #329 3:52PM
Exactly! I love my girls more than my dogs and I use a lease for my dogs to keep them safe. - PrincessDuckie  934.9 #226 3:57PM
Remember the invisible dog on a leash? I hope they make an invisible kid on a leash. - cereal  170.4 #2530 11:34PM
We were checking into out hotel Thursday night waiting at the front desk. A near hysterical lady came up to me to see if I had seen a baby run through here. I was puzzled but I had not. I watched them and then the elevator opened and a two year old came out by himself! Laughing! Some kids need the leash. Better safe than sorry. - AZDisney  610.5 #377 8:10AM
I don't know if it was intentional or not, but the stroller lady in the back left is totally judging you. - LittleAprilShowers  587.9 #390 4:01PM
No, she's thinking "man, that is one sweet child safety tether that kid is wearing - I wonder if they sell those at the emporium?!" - daddystud9  91.9 #3885 12:42AM
Ok. I see it now. - LittleAprilShowers  587.9 #390 10:19PM

Your son is adorable by the way! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.9 #48 11:22PM
Thx - he is rather adored by his 6 sisters. Yup, I said 6. Good thing DL is crammed full of princess for my ladies!! - daddystud9  91.9 #3885 11:26PM
I LOVE KID LEASHES! So far our 15 year old is well adjusted, the jury's out on the 5 year old ;-) - PrincessDuckie  934.9 #226 11:23PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I so read this like your 15 year old is still on a leash! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.9 #48 11:25PM
Me tooo! And lol! - PinkElephants  745.7 #301 11:26PM
Me too, although some 15 year olds need one more a toddler πŸ˜€ - ShariRenee  12700.4 #8 11:40PM
Agree. - daddystud9  91.9 #3885 11:49PM
Lol! Of course I used them on both when they were younger :-) - PrincessDuckie  934.9 #226 8:37AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That's what I thought too. Hat she was well adjusted to wearing the leash! I thought, you go, PrincessDuckie! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. She is a nice, responsible girl, though. I have witnessed that. Try are both great girls. Well, all three of you! - MeridaFan  4244.2 #41 4:18PM
Some kids need this some don't. When I was a kid I'd stay super close to my mom always afraid of getting lost... my sister on the other hand ran off every time my mom would blink. - clarabelle87  194.2 #2187 12:38AM
This is so true! My Brothers first 4 were typical busy toddlers, and I swore I would never use a baby leash with them being a child psychologist myself...Then the baby came, lol. She is "Houdini Child" and can disappear in an instant, so yes we use a baby leash with her when I bring them to DL :) It really does depend on the child. - hatgal76  452.2 #535 10:37AM
I am truly uber in seeing as how I managed to never need a ridiculous leash to keep ahold of my child. - Lelundrial  857.7 #244 7:47AM
If this was around when I was a kid my parents would have used on me... I was always gettin lost. Maybe they wanted me to get lost? Hummmm. - CallMeFlower  424.0 #571 9:00AM
So many opinions... Lol! As a parent you have to do what you have to do to make sure you feel your child is the safest! :) - mrandmrstooooodles  37.8 #5689 2:30PM
My oldest daughter was an escape artist. If you so much as blinked, she could disappear (and she did, once, at a Disney exhibit at the State Fair - longest couple of minutes of my life!!). We used a harness the first time we brought her to Disneyland. It made it much less stressful. My youngest, on the other hand, was a very shy toddler/preschooler and wouldn't have dreamed of wandering or pulling away. I think it completely depends on the child's personality and the situation. - jmgphx  323.1 #864 4:42PM
I understand, My two year old gets excited about things and she takes off! With me being big and pregnant I need a way to keep the excitement near me! - chunkgirl  250.7 #1435 8:22AM
Lol. Love the illustrative words - big & pregnant! - daddystud9  91.9 #3885 10:05PM
I see a black strap around you. Are you tethered too? ;) - DisneyFan77  928.7 #227 11:26PM
You mean other husbands aren't tethered too?? - daddystud9  91.9 #3885 11:34PM
My hubby broke his, he kept walking off and I kept tugging him back. Lol - dumbbunny  627.7 #366 11:36PM
Oh snap. I mean... strap. I just didn't realize it would be so visible! - DisneyFan77  928.7 #227 11:39PM
My husband is pretty well tethered. Just ask him. πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4244.2 #41 4:25PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, dumb bunny. - MeridaFan  4244.2 #41 4:40PM
Totally have a baby "leash" backpack for baby. It lets him feel independent with walking without e having to worry about not being able to grab him before he makes a break for it. - starwarsmamma  561.4 #407 11:28PM
This is great :) , I had to use one on my now 14 year old daughter when she was 5, she is special needs and it was such a peace of mind , but also aloud her to explore a short distance away. We are from Seattle area as well :) - JeanaLeigh  8.3 #13458 11:35PM

No leashes, this is a situation where you have to supervise by committee, using multiple adults and older siblings. - LeftyLightning  460.0 #525 11:58PM
We did exact same thing. Also take a picture every morning so you can show if he gets lost. - DLKenCA  3184.6 #50 12:01AM
I was in the restroom waiting in line and caught a 4 1/2 year old runner who had ditched his mom! He was so proud of himself till I swooped him up! Poor Mom! I agree some kids just need them! I don't even think he was being bad...just thought this is a fun game! - KelleyandTyler22  1321.8 #149 2:05AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚a runner, love it! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.9 #48 2:06AM

We had a first grader run out the gate at school and most of the way home, a couple miles away. Escaping disneyland would be easy for this guy. 😜 - bluefairy  643.8 #354 2:34AM
When/if I ever have a kid I am definitely using one. If my kid end up anything like my boyfriend, that kid will be a wanderer. - missmimi90  2056.2 #91 2:37AM

Yep! unsolicited parenting advise is always a hit with the crowd ;) - ShariRenee  12700.4 #8 2:10PM
I had NO IDEA. Lol. We used to be more uptight but having 7 tends to loosen things up ...and being "old young parents." - daddystud9  91.9 #3885 7:10PM
I'm not a parent so Can't say I'm for them or against them but I sure hated them as a kid , I've also been nearly tripped at disneyland by those things - ChristopherRobin661  281.1 #1144 2:24PM
I use a leash on my 4yearold because she hates hot sweaty hands and holding her arm in the air for hours best for child and parents. - dl811  125.0 #3255 2:26PM
I say to each their own. We personally do not use a leash on our son mainly because we have not needed to do so. He does pretty well at staying close and holding our hand, when needed. I'm honestly unsure what I would decide if I had to cross this bridge. - EpicDio  460.3 #524 2:35PM
I thought the same way. But sometimes it is needed. Don't own one but sometimes I think why haven't I bought one lol - annjay07  170.8 #2524 2:58PM
I guess it is depending on the child and the parent. As a proud father of a 7 year old boy living with high functioning autism we considered using one on our first trip, but Disneyland has had such a great effect on him that their was no need. Instead we are hyper aware of where he is at all times and that he can go with me or his mom...or we can all stay together as his little sister (age 5) is finally tall enough to go on most of the attractions he was to try! - BombFrogFormerCM  1081.8 #193 3:29PM
I used to make fun, now after visiting the parks with multiple kids( and friends kids in tow) I'm thinking its not such a bad idea.. It was easier when they were content to ride in the stroller... - carminaire  969.5 #220 4:33PM

2 out of 3 of my kids needed harnesses. They were life savers! Of course it was never used to replace holding hands, but I swear little kid hands are covered in butter how fast they slip out and run off! LOL Adorable kid! Hope you all had great fun today!!! - Autoalice  161.4 #2670 9:41PM

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  9280.9 #11 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  10493.2 #9 9:55PM

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  3076.9 #52 11:41PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14030 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  683.0 #332 9:06AM
