The employee will verbally determine whether the guest is too young to enter on his or her own, since children that age typically do not carry identification with them, she said. The child's parent or guardian would then be contacted if the visitor is underage, and that adult would need to physically come accompany the child into the park. Disney chose the age of 14 after the company surveyed its guests and reached out to organizations that deal with child welfare, Brown said. She said both the organizations and visitors agreed on the new age limit. "That was the age they felt was appropriate," she said. "That's also the age the Red Cross recommends for babysitting."
