First, let me tell you about the attraction, then I will speculate as to what happens to parents. The attraction itself is a large playground. The entrance looks like the photo above and you can enter from the Streets of America (above) or from the other side, just across from the Monsters, Inc. meet and greet (click here to read more). Both entrances to the attraction lead to the one and only entrance into the playground and the one and only exit from the playground. Read that one more time. . . one and only entrance and exit!
Here's the boy and the husband on an ant and what's that in the background? It's an Oreo cookie! The floor is that padded play structure flooring to help break falls and there are noises. . . the occasional buzzing sound of a bee--that is HUGE. Or the dog sneezing. . .
EO). The kids hadn't been prepped for how they were going to handle the playground. The mom wondered if there was another way out. Would the kids escape and she not know it? Remember: One and only entrance and exit. Say it with me. . .
Since the mom hadn't planned enough to know what the movie set adventure was and the kids were happily surprised by the playground, the mom now was trying to corral them while yelling at her husband. Again, it is just hard not to watch and I actually answered some of her questions because I was standing right there. And, she wasn't the only one!
- Play along--climb, slide, run, etc. Which is OK! It's Disney and all the play structures can handle adults using them, too.
- Wait in the playground as your child or children play. There are benches just outside, which is where you will have to be if you have a sleeping child in a stroller, and inside the playground there are some areas that can be used as seats or there is always the spongy floor.
- Find Studios Catering Co. and grab a bite to eat while you wait. Even if the counter service restaurant is closed, I think the seating area stays open. AND, there's an adult beverage counter just next door.
And, if you think the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure Playground makes parents nervous about losing eye sight of their kids, just wait 'til you see the Boneyard at Animal Kingdom!
