For crafty folks, the Shrinky Dink tags are fun and easy, I did a how-to on them a few months ago here: http://pjguides.wordpress.com/creating-childrens-id-tags-using-shrinky-dinks/
We use them on everything from backpacks to shoes.
Sharpie on the arm.
We use silicone braclets with our cellphone # engraved on them.
We do the same thing. We have used them for 3 different Disney trips and several other events outside of Disney so they have more than paid for themselves.
Having just come back from a Disney trip I personally encountered 7 lost children the week we were there. Only one knew his parents number and he did not know the area code. None of the rest had any idea how to get a hold of their parents. All were hysterical. If you do nothing else atleast write your number on the child with a sharpie.
I have bracelets from vitalids.com. There are two different sets depending on the age of the child. One set is for toddlers, the other for ages 3 to 9.
I have one from each set because I traveled with a 2 year-old and a 9 year-old. They are both waterproof. The one for the older child is easier to remove and they send extra cards for you to change your information over time. The information card isnt visible. You have to remove the bracelet and the information is on a card inside an opening in it. Dd picked the purple one. I also wrote on there where we were staying.
The toddler one has the information on the side that doesnt show when it is being worn. On the visible side there is a message on it that says, If Im lost look under my bracelet and the information is visible if you just turn it over.
I just told dd that if we were separated, to find a CM (and we talked about how to identify one) and give them the bracelet so they could call me. Dd and I were separated one day in Epcot. When I found her, she was handing a CM her bracelet.
And just wanted to highlight this. It is good for them to have something. When my dd is nervous she will easily forget the number or mix it up with our home phone. While our situation didnt go as far as me getting the call, dd said she didnt even get scared because she had that bracelet. The CM was also happy.
She said "I'm really impressed. Youd be surprised how many children we deal with and have no way of contacting the adult. The child doesnt have anything on them or they cant remember the phone number."
