    Beth Asked

    Hi! Taking our 2yo in Feb. I read in WDW w/Kids that Guest Services at the parks will give you stickers to put in/on child's shirt with cell #, etc. I called General Info, but she didn't know specifics. Has anybody done this? Can you give details? THANKS!

    Hi Beth,

    I am not familiar with the ID stickers being available - I'm not saying that they aren't available - I've just never inquired. I highly recommend some form of ID on your child. At 2, they can easily wonder off in the sea of guests - no matter how good of an eye you keep on them. I had a Pet ID tag engraved for both of my boys with their name & my cell # on it. I put it through the laces of their shoes (a couple of hole down so they can't easily remove it). I purchased a Disney one on property for my camera too. It was in a "vending machine" which engraved it in a matter of a couple of minutes in Once Upon a Toy at DTD.  I've also seen people put their child's info in a plastic pouch & attach it to a lanyard. This maybe hard for a 2 year who may want to take it off or could choke themselves with it.  You could also get an ID necklace or bracelet. 

    I personally would want something a little more durable than a sticker that could come off easily especially when moving around in a crowd & could get stuck to something else. But if you don't have access to any other option, its better than nothing. You can check with Guest Services at any of the theme parks to ask about the stickers. If its your child's 1st visit, ask them for a "1st Visit" button & have them write your cell # on it as well as your child's name.  

    The thought of a lost child is enough to send panic through any parent. Fear not, at Disney, there are never any lost children - only lost parents. Cast Members are well trained to handle these situations if they arise. If you become separated, immediately locate a CM in the area you last saw your child. If not located within a few minutes, check at the Baby Care Center or Guest Relations where they will help reunite you. Once your 2 year old is a little older, point out that CMs wear the big white pins & he/she should look for a CM if they are ever separated from you.

    Wishing you magical memories!
