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  596.0 #343 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  242.6 #1451 8:14AM
Love the reverse psychology! - DisneyDawn  419.2 #533 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  242.6 #1451 1:40PM

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  347.4 #686 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 #9493 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  2352.9 #65 11:43AM

Exactly! I love my girls more than my dogs and I use a lease for my dogs to keep them safe. - PrincessDuckie  906.2 #203 3:57PM

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  610.4 #334 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  587.1 #345 4:01PM

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  4243.7 #34 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 #2072 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  449.8 #492 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  658.7 #305 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 #523 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 #5348 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 #790 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  249.4 #1357 8:22AM

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 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 #3129 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 #475 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  170.5 #2402 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  1015.8 #185 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  805.3 #229 4:33PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM
