Disney World may be the happiest place on earth, but not if someone gets lost! Especially a child. That was one reason why we wanted to be extra sure we were prepared for amusement park safety before we left for Disney World. One thing we knew we wanted was to find a way to have our contact information on our daughter. But I wasn’t sure how…
Then I stumbled upon – Safety wrist bands – and I knew that was what I had been looking for. We packed them in our luggage, and put one on our daughter as soon as we got to the park!
You can put allergy info on the band, or other important safety info. Or, you can do what we did – we put our names and cell phone numbers on our daughters safety wristband. That way if she was separated from us, a park worker or good Samaritan could quickly find out how to contact us her parents. And we were sure to have the cell phone with that number on us at all times in the park.
The bands come in different fun patterns and characters – and our daughter loved wearing hers. We also put a wristband on the handle of our stroller, and our luggage to help identify it!
Some other Amusement Park Safety Tips:
- Don’t let children chew gum on the rides! The rides stop and go suddenly and gum can be a big chocking hazard.
- Wear clothes that are bright and easy to spot. If you’re traveling with a group consider wearing all the same color so you can locate your party quickly and with a glance.
- Come up with a meeting spot in each park that adults and older children can easily find and wait at if your party becomes separated
- Tell young children to stay where they are if they realize they have been separated from the group. Or show them how to recognize park employees for help instead of a stranger.
- Use hand sanitizer after riding rides, teach kids to avoid touching eyes or noses during or after holding on to rides
- Note multiple ride exits, before you agree to meet your party at the “exit.” Especially a problem at Disney! Note which exit you will meet at.
- Consider using a stroller for kids when leaving or entering the park in a huge crowd. It will help them not to get separated from you.
