Safety is always first when it comes to executives who are running the Walt Disney World theme park franchise. Disney has water parks and theme parks in Florida, California, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Paris and these parks use cutting-edge technologies and complete routine safety checks which make these parks the safest theme parks in the entertainment industry. The franchise does its park to keep visitors safe, but visitors should also utilize their own methods of safety as a way to make their family trip to Disney even more enjoyable.
Disney has various parks in the theme park complex and safety is always their first concern. They are among one of the safest of theme parks but they must keep up with regulations and guidelines. Disney uses a tag system to ensure ride safety. Each day each section of the many rides holds a board which uses multiple tags as a way to represent the sections. Only after the board is emptied onto a completed board, the ride will be ready to open. The ride being open depends on whether or not there are any concerns with the ride and an inspection being successful.
Park visitors should be sure to listen to what they are being told by ride operators. They should sit back in their seats and not stand or leave until the ride has stopped completely. Gum should not be chewed while on rides and it is the visitors’ responsibility to pay close attention to guidelines, rules, and warnings on each various theme park attraction. Make sure any harness fits around you snugly and hold on to the harness or any bars there for stability.
Disney also hosts water parks, which means safety in these areas is important as well. Lifeguards can be spotted at almost every corner of the water park rides. This is a difficult job because there are many people and those playing in water can resemble someone in distress. Disney lifeguards are trained rigorously and extremely skilled before they assume duty. Visitors have a certain amount of responsibility when it comes to being safe as majority of any injuries or deaths were due to not listening to employees and inattentiveness.
Visitors should never twist in seats, stand, or maneuver out of safety harnesses. Small children should be held onto and height restrictions should never be cheated. Be sure to read any cautionary signs, warnings, or guidelines that can be found at the ride to make sure your health will allow you to ride safely. There are programs for child safety also in place which has led to kidnapping within the park and Disney parking lots to never being reported. Parents should be sure to include any information to prevent families from being separated such as informing kids to stay put and let the parent find them or asking a mom who has kids to stay with them until their parent gets there. Again, there has never been a report of children being abducted but it is always a good idea to set family safety guidelines while visiting the park.
