How Not To Get Lost at Disney

Updated: 13 Feb 2013 04:10:15 AM

Disney Resorts are the perfect family vacation, but all it takes is one lost child and your happy day dissolves into a clenched stomach, a pounding heart and tears.

Unfortunately, the mix of eager little ones and massive parking lots, hundreds of rides, attractions and restaurants can make it easy to lose track of each other.


Here are a few tips on how not to get lost at Disney.

First, if you’re travelling with a large family group and children who are old enough, consider investing in some two-way radios for a cheap way to keep in touch that won’t rack up your roaming charges.

Set up an easily remembered meeting place and discuss it with your child at the beginning of your visit.

There are plenty of highly visible locations in each Disney theme park, such as right in front of Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom or Spaceship Earth at Epcot.

Disney Cast Members

If you have smaller children, teach them to recognize Disney Cast Members and staff.

The staff is employees of Disney.

These people wear clearly visible name badges with the Disney logo.

Name Badges

If you are separated from your small child, they should know to go right for the nearest Cast Member.

Disney employees are experienced in dealing with lost kids, and it is the fastest way to reunite you with your child.

An easy way to find your car again at the end of a long day is to take a few pictures when you first park of your row number and any nearby visual cues.

Snap the photos right on your cell phone or your camera.

Need Disney Tickets
