Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I have been to Disney when it is very crowded and have been concerned with what to do if I was ever separated from my child. Are there any safety measures taken by Disney staff? I've heard that if you have a Disney pass on you, that you can be located.

- Hi, Shelia.
I can't imagine a parent who hasn't worried about being separated from his/her child while at WDW, but rest assured that WDW has many plans in place to deal with lost children. On our trips, we always included a laminated sheet of paper with information such as our names and cell phone numbers that our sons carried with them as well as practicing what to do if they were lost by knowing to always look for someone with a name tag.
Now as they are older, we've adjusted this a bit and have our cell phone numbers written on the reverse side of rubber bracelets in case they forget our numbers. And as a secondary precaution, I always carry recent photos of them. I've also read somewhere a great idea of taking cell phone photos of children each morning to record what they are wearing and to have a truly recent photo. As for the Disney pass, I haven't heard about any way to locate children/people through the passes.
I hope this helps and relieves some of your worries! Kara
