Heeleys in the parks?

Does anyone know if they allow children to wear heeleys (sneakers with wheels) in the WDW parks? We have an amusement park around here that does not allow them. My kids would love to be able to use them, (plus it will help them to keep up) I appreciate any info!

My kids wore them and they were an absolute godsend.

No one complained about them at all.

Go for it!

I saw someone "escorted" out of MK for wearing Heelys, Disney do not like them as they are so dangerous. Anything a kid wears with wheels and doesn't wear a helmet is asking for trouble! Anyway, it's up to you but you may be asked to leave.

The people in question were repeatly asked to not use them while on Disney property and wouldn't listen, so out they went.

Thanks for the responses! My kids use them discreetly in most places that aren't the "open road". They're definitely not crazy on them, they sort of just glide along a little. Plus I would definitely be bringing a pair of flip flops for each so they wouldn't have to wear those all day. We'll see what happens, I won't let them do it if we are outright told not to. Plus, they might not want to wear them all the time anyway. Thanks again for the input!

Heeleys are for playgrounds, outside your house on the sidewalk or in your own house. Heeley are not for malls, supermarkets, stores, hospitals, churches, amusment parks, stadiums, restaurants, theaters or any other places where large number of people are and parents that allow their kids to use them in these places are just plain inconsiderate.

You know I find theswe responses very surprising.

I had two little girls with me in May 2005 Disneyland and Disneyworld 2006 and they wore their heelys. No one asked us to leave. The kids had fun getting around and managed to go for 10 hour days thanks to the wheels.

I wonder if it's the way these kdis are behaving while using them that maybe makes the staff cringe.

I guess you can always bring the heely key and covers and pop the wheels out if you need to. They turn back into runners very quickly.

I agree. I have never found my children to offend anyone by wearing them. Believe me if that was the case they would not be allowed to wear them. I didn't mean to sound inconsiderate by wondering if kids wore them in the parks, sorry.
