Looking for ways on How To Keep Your Child Safe At Walt Disney World Resorts? Most of us are guilty of once we check in our room we flop our suitcases on the floor and fall out from exhaustion on the beds. Being a parent of 2 girls under 5 years old I am very protective of what they do. While I know Disney is a safe place with all the security measures they put in place the last time we were at the Caribbean Beach Resort we had to take a few steps to get our room Child Proof.
I wanted to share with you tonight some Quick Tips to getting your room ready for little ones:
- Be aware on how your doors open and close. – When you make the 20 trips to the car or to the cafeteria for your free refills make sure to pay attention to how your door opens and closes as not to whack your little one in the head when carrying an arm full of stuff in to your room.
- Do a sweep of the room – Pick up any pens, paper, matches, ash trays (showing my age here) shampoo, soap, etc. Anything that little hands can do naughty things with. Most rooms have a high shelf or a entertainment stand you can move everything to so they are out of your toddlers way.
- Pack Socket Covers – Just because your on vacation doesn’t mean those electrical outlets do not have a toddler tractor-beams. If your little ones sees empty sockets they will want to help mommy and daddy out by sticking anything they can find in there. So be sure to pack a few of the socket covers to get the ones that are in reach of little hands.
- Lock those cabinets – If you are lucky enough to have a kitchen you might want to keep little hands out of the various drawers. Cabinet locks are perfect to bring with you as they are light weight and travel easily. I know our upcoming vacation we are staying at a DVC resort with a full kitchen and you better believe we will have some of these with us.
- Use the top locks – On just about all hotel rooms they have a top lock that little ones can’t reach. So when Mommy and Daddy pass out from exhaustion and your little one feels the need to head off to the parks without you. Rest easy knowing they aren’t going anywhere.
- Make a Pillow fort – Don’t be afraid to ask for some extra pillows to line the side of the bed so your little ones won’t roll out of bed in the middle of the night. Of course you could always put them between you and all snuggle in the same bed every night. Thanks you everyone for the advice! Disney offers free bed rails, all you have to do is ask but hey who doesn’t love extra pillows?
- Put trash cans up – Make sure to pick those small trashcans off the floor so your kids cant get in there and decide to make a full face helmet out of the plastic bag inside.
Well I hope that helps when planning your next Disney Vacation. Many of the items you bring to Child Proof your room can be packed in a gallon size zip lock bag and repacked for your next vacation.
