It is important to keep in mind that this is how this particular emergency situation was handled, but emergency situations can be handled in different ways depending on various factors.

As wonderful as it is and can be Disney World, things like this can happen. It is important to be prepared for possible emergencies, especially if you are traveling with young children.

Another look at the crowd

Before any possible emergency, review the rules for your family. Make sure everyone knows how to stay calm and listen to the cast members. If you travel with younger children, make sure they know where to reunite with you if they break up, or make sure they know how to ask a cast member for help and provide them with your phone number.
