    My family and I are frequent vistors at WDW. We go every 2 years and I went every year the first 12 years it was open! My question is: Do they have some sort of GPS device to attach to children in case they get lost? If so how much and how do I get it.

    There is no "lost child prevention" device that is distributed at Walt Disney World. Guests do have a number of personal strategies they use to keep their children close at hand. You can read about some of these HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

    While I hope that you never encounter this situation, I should also tell you that Disney does an amazing job of reuniting lost children with their families. I recently watched cast members in action as they worked to find the parents of a four-year-old who had become lost. Even with a language issue, the child and parents were reconnected within about 10 minutes. Of course, that's an eternity in parent-time, but the system I witnessed was incredibly efficient.

    Good luck planning your vacation.
