I do not know if I shared this story with my mw family but last march when we were at Disney. We were staying at all star music and one afternoon we were back from the parks early and was spending it at the pool. My wife and I were in the swallow end because of our lil ones and a family walked up with a small little girl well the little girl got away from her family as they were finding a place to put their towels and belongings. The lil girl decided to come into the pool she didnt get too far but she couldn't swim very well and I saw her go under and when she came back up she had that look of terror in her eyes. I got to her as quick as I could and picked her up when I turned around to find her family they had no idea she had got away from them. I'm not telling y'all this to make me look like some hero I'm just glad I was in the right place at the right time because drownings happen so quickly. Has anyone else had something like that happen or seen something like that happen during your stay at Disney?

Unfortunately yes I find parents don't watch their children. Thank god for super vigilant people. My kids know the rules and we take turns in the water for that reason. - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 8:38AM
I've seen that happen too. I've alerted a few parents to wandering toddlers but haven't had to rescue them from the pool thank God. Bless you for your eagle eyes and stopping a potential tragedy. No matter what their age do not take your eyes off your little ones for even a second. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #19 10:39AM
Unfortunately too many times parents feel they are on Vacation from kids also. I have seen some older children left unattended and running wild. Even children nine and ten can get hurt running arround wet pools. - Pooh147856  355.1 #24 1:42PM
Yes I have. I was at the big slide at the boardwalk villas waiting for my son to come down when a little boy came off the slide with only one swimmie on. (the little floating things on the arms) I went right for him and brought him and his list swimmie to the side of the pool. I never even saw his parents. They must have just let him go where ever he wanted. I'm sure the life guard would have gotten him if I wasn't there but why take that chance. - Boardwalk245  13.9 #208 4:16PM
