Disney sounds perfect for you. Should be lots of kids around you're same age.

I appreciate your honest replies, most of the time people from dangerous cities are in denial about the crime in their city and get angry when you address it, even in Chicago or Detroit.

The only time I legitimately felt in danger was when I saw an actual gang when driving to a friend's house in the Irish Channel. That was scary. But, honestly, I wouldn't walk outside anywhere after dark. I was walking from Magazine on Jefferson recently at night, and I did not like it one bit! Didn't feel safe...

I used to get off work in the Quarter at 10 pm every night and walk to whichever bus stop I needed to go and never felt unsafe, even 9 months pregnant lol. But then I knew this guy who got jumped/stabbed for $20 (and my husband did too, although he was on a bike). I pick up night shifts sometimes and ride my bike home, I think the bike helps you feel more secure although it's just an illusion. I put a rubber band on a pepper spray thingie and wear it on my wrist.

Thing is, just like anything... Trouble will often appear out of nowhere and there's just nothing you can really do about it... At this point I don't think it really matters where you are, where you live... It's just a possibility.

Another dose of reality for you: Crime in the US is the lowest its been in 20 years, and has been falling rapidly. Disney is the perfect place for you - fantasyland!

One time after that French Quarter parade, I walked through the Quarter to Lee Circle. I strangely didn't feel unsafe. There was a ton of lighting and tons of people around. I think the trouble occurs if you go just outside the quarter into the projects by mistake...
