A question for moms out there. How old was your son or daughter before you let them use disney coaches to travel around disney world?
Are they mature enough to understand "we need you back here by this time" and do they understand how to get help at Disney and are they mature enough to know about stranger danger? If yes to all 3 then I would let them.
Would they have a cellphone to contact you if they got delayed?

I think Claire said it best though, ultimately, you're the best judge of what your child is ready for
Back before the age of cell phones I was allowed to visit my DBF and his family in WDW. i was staying with family in Tampa and drove to WDW for the day. I was 17 and he was 15 (yes, younger man!). We went off by ourselves and met up with his family later.
As a side note: This was the trip that I got into a car accident while leaving the parking lot. DBF had already walked away and as I pulled out I hit the car parked next to me. I started crying hysterically and really lost it. No cell phones yet so it took awhile for me to flag him down and Disney police were called. It wasn't a good night for me. Don't let your 17yr olds drive BIG Cadillacs to WDW!:(
Same here...but there were no cell phones when David was 13, but he was a big kid and had common sense..well, to a point :rolleyes008:Originally Posted by Johnie, post: 20179
the girls were 13 and 15 and we made sure they went together. No cell phones, BUT we had walkie talkies...don't work on buses folks.
