We’ve not had a problem with resistance to leaving in the past even tho we had that 2 year old with a very definite mind of her own. Luckily, by the time she figured out how to disconnect the straps on the stroller she was much more reasonable.
On our upcoming trip with three (vs our historical 2) young kids I’ve considered mutiny when planning. I’ve come up with a three prong evasion tactic:
1 - brunch at 10:30, first morning Crystal Palace. For that break in the action, diverting attention from the rides/shows. Fill up the tummies, dull the resistance.
2 - one last attraction - by the exit; first morning - Tinkerbell M&G. No walking past rides, shows, stores, guys with enough balloons to lift a house . . .
3 - hope this first morning precedent carries over on subsequent mornings. Kids are creatures of habit. Two of these three in question are school age and well indoctrinated in the “it’s time to [insert current activity]”. The third one is not yet in school - possible wild card.
Plan loops, or walk past the fun stuff early and then work your way toward the exit.
