I have seen people around Disney World with their IPads and I must confess at the time I thought they were NUTS but guess what I want to take with me on my next trip?? Yes, my IPad. Assuming the device is secured, are they safe to take on the rides? Some rides have a lot of jostling so I want to make sure. Thanks in advance for any help.

If it matters, I do have mine in a Lifeproof case and my DD is in a Survivor case.

I haven't taken mine, but, I see a lot of people with them in the parks. I think it would get a little heavy to take along all day. I have an I phone, which gives me most of the same type of infomation.

What kind of Survivor Case is large enough to fit your DD in?

Are you one of those people who takes pictures with their iPad? Those people crack me up.

I don't have one so I don't know how fragile they are but I have an IPhone in a skull candy case and have left the phone on my the roof of the car and driven off and launched it off and skipped it across the road.

And phone still works.

So I'd think it would be okay.

Regarding taking pictures with the iPad I don't feel as though they turn out that great especially since there is not a flash. Sadly the reason I am asking is to check work email from time to time.

Sorry that happened to you but I am glad your phone is okay. Thanks for sharing.

Why do u need an ipad/tablet in the parks. Isn't there enough entertainment. Wanna take a picture.. buy a decent camera. My tablet stays in the room and is used for reading on the plane.

That is along the lines of my thinking too..it is just hard in my job to be unplugged for as long as I am going to be out of the office and there is always down time waiting in lines..good multitasking.

I will be bringing my Kindle Fire HD to the parks this summer because it has a wireless plan (small, but for $50 for the year, a good deal). We don't have smart phones and I was wanting to use it to check for wait times. Last summer we brought our smaller Kindle Fire to DLR (just DH and I) and sometimes we played games together in line. I can take it or leave it for that.

But I just thought I would toss in that some people might want a tablet with them for a reason like that- to help with the parks. (Although, we may be the only people left in America who do not own smart phones) We have a hard cases for it, and keep it in the back pack in a plastic bag. Never had any problem with it going on rides. And DH carries the backpack, so weight isn't an issue for me.

I think if someone really wants to bring one, they will no matter what. The issue really tends to be whether or not that person is courteous to those around them when using it to take pictures or video.
