    Re: Labor at Disneyland

    it is not true. A woman went into labor in the main entrance ticket takers lead shack some time in 2003 or 2004. the Paramedics arrived and took her and kid to the hospital. No Lifetime Pass was issued, although it is POSSIBLE that they were issued replacement comps for their lost day.

    Me thinks someone has fallen under the spell of a rumor. No one has ever been given a lifetime pass for being born in the park - somewhere on snopes it debunks this rumor.

    Yeesh. Some people are wackos. Serves those people right to be told no.
    And that is the truth. If my wife hadn't of been at a hospital with an extremely good staff, our first child would of been still born. My daughter wrapped herself up with the umbilical cord and hung herself. If it wasn't for an excellent doctor performing a fast emergency C-section, my daughter wouldn't be here today.

    Not that well trained, plus I just don't see Disneyland having that kind of medical facilities.

    Step back and think about that for just a second. You intentionally keep going to DL to have your child born there. Some unforseen circumstance happens and your child or the mom dies during child birth that could have been prevented at a hospital. What a horrible and disturbing memory that would be.

    No it's not true.

    Dup. See above. Sorry.

    Updating this thread with something the Opus Archives just gave birth to...an article on supposedly the first baby born inside Disneyland. Now I would suggest that readers take this "fact" with a possible grain of salt, as I seem to recall Park births before this one. But old dates and years do get a bit all blurred together as you get older.

    So from the Opus Archives and the August 1979 edition of "Disney Times" (which was a large full sized newspaper-type monthly employee newsletter for the company...issued from the Burbank studios)...here it is:





    That little baby would be 29 years old today. Wonder how she's doing?

    Not sure about a child born in Disneyland. But if a baby is born on DCA property it is mercifully put out of its misery.

    My wife began labor at Disneyland; we left went to the hospital, like normal people.

    Yeah, I forgot about the Obstetrician and Coroner that are on-call for these unusual situations.

    Actually if you have an AP, a trip to Disneyland would be great to get things moving. Walking is one of the best things to get labor going. I presonally walked around the LA Zoo before my son was born trying to get things going. Disneyland was too far of a drive from my hospital!

    I plan on walking around Disneyland right before my baby is due. I'm due June 7th so hopefully it'll be hot and things will start moving along.

    How about rides that would help move things along if the baby is taking his or her sweet time?

    Tower of Terror gets my vote.

    Only your next incarnation.

    And it only applies In Carnation.

    You've really got your priorities out of whack if you are willing to deliberately set yourself up to go into labor at Disneyland to get a "freebie".

    Any sane woman would take the safety and cleanliness of a hospital. And let's not forget the fact that there's trained staff and epidurals accessible there as well...

    Yeesh. Some people are wackos. Serves those people right to be told no.

    No, you just get to be included in the myriad of stupid ghost stories that permeate throughout Disneyland fandom.

    I've been witness to someone who died on DL property. Well, died as a result of what happened plus complications from the ensuing events. Had to talk to management to see if I needed to do paperwork or not. But I didn't as I did not actually see said event.

    I've also seen many an allergic reaction to foods from the resort when someone didn't think their allergy would be aggravated by something. But, low and behold, the food was made at some factory that also processes nuts and there was enough present to trigger their allergy A lot happens every day if you just look in the places where it can happen. Yeah...

    2DieFR got it right. With that many people moving through the resort area every year, stuff is bound to happen.

    Now, I wonder how many people were conceived on ATIS...
