Am I missing something? Are you really trying to say Disneyland is not an appropriate place for two year olds?

Thanks, Fin. I was wondering the same thing.

I was wondering too. If Disney isn't appropriate, where is?

Apparently much better to sit at home in front of the tube than to be out doing something that might be tiring or overly exciting... or require compromise or might be made easier by a harness or .....

Tried it. Couldn't get it to stay on her neck. For some reason she didn't like it and kept taking it off.

Apparently you missed the point. But that's ok. It's good to know you aren't judging others...only mentioning what worked for you...

It's those dang opposable thumbs!

I never used a harness, but I'll admit that a shock collar has crossed my mind once or twice. I am a MEAN MOM.

I found my good tweezers today, by the way. Little Miss I Didn't Do It I Swear had them.

ZAP!

Anyways in your cousins case I would have tried to find someone to watch the younger children and if that wasnt possible we wouldnt have went. But as I said before (I think this is what like the 6th time?) THIS IS WHAT I WOULD DO. Me and me only. Everyone should be able to treat their animals oops I means kids however theyd like.

You know, I don't think you're really being "nonjudgemental" here.

I really have to wonder what kind of parent would leave a 2 year old at home with a sitter while taking the older one to Disneyland. I don't need an answer to that. I'm just imagining my reaction if I had a friend actually tell me they were doing that.

FWIW I DID wait until mine were 4 and 6 and no harness or stroller was needed.

I don't understand this response. A two year old will enjoy Disney on his/her own level. The other kids will enjoy it on their level. I think Disney is far more appropriate than say, Mexico, for small kids, and I know people who do that.

I agree. We went there when our oldest was five and the younger one was two. Then we went again when the youngest was five, as a birthday present to her. I mean, what better place for a family vacation? Granted, it's expensive, but there are ways to trim expenses a bit.
