I think this is going to end these parks.
Fat parents can't just wait at the gate anymore.
If there are no fatties, who will eat the food?

Good. Hire a babysitter. I went to disneyquest on a weekday afternoon and it was full of kids whose parents were using it as day care. It really did ruin that visit because the kids were just out of control.

Generally to eat the food, they'd need to be inside the main gate, which would seem to fit the policy.

Ask anyone who worked security in the halcyon days of the early 90's when the parking lot had a drop-off zone in front of the gate (when Alice lot still existed and the parking lot was where California Adventure is now) and they will tell you of the awful summers when parents would:

1. Buy their darling monsters a deluxe annual pass (so there weren't any blackout dates)
2. Drop them off at the front gate at 8 a.m.
3. Pick them up at midnight (or 1 a.m. when we used to close in summer)

Oh, and did I mention who was responsible if little Madison or Carter wasn't in the park during that entire time, like the little snowflake who got caught in the parking lot of the hotel down the road with her boyfriend? Yeah, it was us. Because CLEARLY we were responsible for ensuring our annual passholders were inside the park for...some...reason.

The only thing different now is that the kids have much more room to roam around and get into trouble. I for one can see zero downside to this except Mommy and Daddy have to hire more pricey babysitters.

In my neighborhood, most of the criminal activity is committed by those persons that parents think are too old to need a baby-sitter, and too young to drive a car.  Our pool now has rules and punishments about no one under the age of 16 without a parent present, due to the number of times parents were dropping a carload of kids, of whom only one or two were related to the driver.  In both of these examples, insurance companies, police departments, and lawyers played a hand in getting things changed.

I wonder how many incidents have occurred at Disney parks to make this change desirable?
 
2013-03-18 05:49:26 AM  
I would imagine it's more to do with gangs of unsupervised kids running around stealing and tearing shiat up that pisses them off. Not that all parents watch their kids or worry about what they do, but i guess it's better than having kids running around with nobody at all watching them.

As someone who has a week in October carved out for Disney World, I wish there were 18+ days at Disney.

Local movie theatre going 18+ was fantastic.

Haven't been able to find pot at Disney the last few times we've went. Hoping it works out this time.

TFA says that the parks all had different age policies already.  This is just standardization, not something new.

Walt got the idea for Disneyland after spending the day with his daughter at a local park and spent the entire time on the park bench because there wasn't anything for adults to do.  Now, all Disney Resorts are equated as "kids parks" with little to no appeal for adults.   Good job, execs!

So...now the parents have to get their own annual pass and get out of the car and actually go inside the park with their kid before turning around and going home?

"Hey kid, where is your parent or guardian?"
"We split up. I am supposed to meet them in tomorrowland in an hour."

Most p that construction and changes were made under Eisner. Currently, they are working on a Six-Flags style coaster park on the Florida resort focused on the Disney villains. I also assume that their purchase of Stat Wars means there will be a SW themed park, how could they not?

Don't combine pot and the International Food and Wine Festival, unless you're extraordinarily wealthy.

Today I learned: this hasn't been the policy all along.  I also learned that they'll let a 14 year old in without supervision.  I'm surprised it isn't 16 or 18.

mrlewish: Who goes to Disney anything nowadays?


Just got back from DL/DCA yesterday.  Nice long weekend and crowds were okay.

The fact is, if you are staying on the property at WDW, your kid can jump on a Disney bus and be at any of the parks (or other locations) pretty easily.  I remember school trips in 4th grade to DL where we all would go with a coach or teacher.  There wasn't an issue as we knew we would get beaten if we were bad by that coach or, eventually, by our parents.

Parents suck now, and their kid's behaviour shows it.

I was one of those kids, and we didn't use the dropoff zone.  We went to the hotel and took the monorail, because that's what the cool people did.  Fark the parking lot, and fark what Disney did with the monorail.

Anyways, dancing/hanging out at the Tomorrowland Terrace was the thing to do in the early/mid 90s with your $99 annual pass(or $129 deluxe pass).

No shiat, 1 day tickets are the same price basically (I think $5 less for kids up to 10 years old), for FL residents they encourage you to get multi day passes... 1 day ticket for FL residents is $89, 3 day is $119... Also parking is now $14... ugh

Cousins lived about 2 miles away  from Disneyland back in the 70's/80's and my sister and I spent a couple of summers with them when we were kids...one of the great joys was an annual pass and being dropped off at the front gate at 8AM two or three days a week and basically having free run of the park, with no parents for however long we wanted to stay.  We weren't the vandalous types, though I'm sure we pissed off plenty of people just by running around and being kids, but whatever...I'm sure Disney has a valid reason for this, but for the locals, it does kind of suck.
