    Wow... That is all I can say... How can you go and move the stroller and NOT notice your child is in there, after talking with your significant other on who had the child. 45 mins in the sun could be very deadly... Poor child. I hope the proper thing happens. I do not know what that should be, but I hope the right thing happens!!

    Omg how awful. How would you not realize your daughter was missing if you were both on the ride together??

    Did anyone notice the lie in his story? He and his wife both thought each other had the little girl but yet when he went out to move the stroller to a designated area, he didn't see the little girl. What a piece of garbage. I'm sure that wasn't the first ride they left he on, it's just the first one she almost died at. Ban em for life for being stupid.

    I didn't notice the lie, but wow, what a completely bogus story. If you are in line at the same ride, aren't you usually somewhat close together? You can't look over and see the little girl is not with your spouse.

    It's a case of "selfishness" and not putting the needs of a child in front of their wants. They wanted to go on POTC and they didn't want to wait for their child to wake up, nor did they seem to feel it was necessary to maybe take her to a comfortable location like a baby care center to have her nap.

    I hope the right thing happens here too.

    These people are IDIOTS, no wait, that's too good of a word for them. Lock them up and give the keys to the prison dog. They should be thankful that someone went and got help and that they didn't find her dead.

    I've carried my two oldest girls onto rides as they slept. yes it was uncomfortable but they were my girls so they are my responsibility. These people are fools and they don't deserve that baby. I hope the state takes her away and gives her to someone who can care for her. What about the people they were with? Didn't they have enough common sense to tell them to pick up the baby?

    Actions speak louder than words, so how about someone strap the parents into a double stroller and park them in the sun for a few hours without a drink!!!

    What a ridiculous lie. How could they possibly say that it was an accident and didnt notice. All that time in the queue and on the ride they would have noticed that they didnt have their child. I cant believe that they would take their child to Walt Disney World and do this to them. Terrible.
