The possibility of my home getting robbed (while I’m away) is HIGHER compared to my ring getting damaged/stolen in Disney World.

I live in the Orlando area and have annual passes to Disney. I wear my e-ring every time ๐Ÿ™‚ It should be just fine.

I got engaged in WDW and for the first couple of days I was really conscious of my ring on my hand in general, but especially when I was holding onto coaster safety bars etc, worried about bashing or breaking it. Plus it was a size too big so I had visions of it flying off in Tower of Terror..! But it survived unscathed, you probably do more rough and tumble stuff with it at home than you realise anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

If it’s a diamond centre stone or something similar in hardness, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. I wore mine in Disney Europe on rides and don’t remember it banging around or anything like that. For reference on how durable most rings are: I was wearing my ring (it’s a 1920’s antique diamond cluster) on a road bike and crashed into a gravel ditch going just under 30km/hr and all that happened was some crosshatch scratching on one side of the metal on the bottom. The jewelry store said they could buff it out but I think it adds character. My advice would be to avoid wearing it swimming. Mine fits perfectly so I thought taking it lane swimming would be no big deal but halfway through the first lane it started to feel like it was sliding off.

We’re going to WDW in January and I just ordered a $10 stand in ring from Amazon. I’m the type to throw my hands up on rides, smack my hands around, and in general WDW and rides in particular are the kind of place where if for any reason your ring came off your finger you’d never get it back.ย

Link to the stand in I got (this is my 2nd time ordering one, the first one stayed in good condition for about 6 months)ย

We’ve been to WDW many times and I never once thought twice about wearing my rings. No damage, no theft, no loss. Unless I were to leave them in the safety deposit box at the bank, I’d be more worried about leaving them at home.

I don’t grasp the idea behind stand-in rings. The safest place for your ring is on your finger.

No need to worry about your ring on Disney rides. I’ve been many times. It’s not a problem.

Wear and rock that ring at Disney.  I live in Florida and you are safe there.  Rides aren’t too rough ring is safe with you. I have a 20 dollar tungsten stand in ring for boxing at the gym only.  Otherwise rock my rings!

1ct isn’t really huge and cumbersome so much so that it would very in the way and damaged in rides or anything.  Iwouldn’t result sorry about it being big enough to get in the way until like 4-5ct+.  How often do people actually slam the back of their hands into things doing anything anyways….

I was at Magic Kingdom last Friday (love saying that now I’m back in rainy freezing England!) and had no probs what so ever. There isn’t really anything you can damage it on really… Diamond is harder than any material they have there! Maybe don’t wear it if you don’t want suncream all over it but I just gave mine a clean when I got back & its all good now.

lilredcat:  

To avoid shipping, hit a shopping mall or WalMart in Orlando and buy a stand in there. It’d be an added souvenir from your travels and everybody can use an everyday band or some such stand in for their grubby days. Disney could count as a grubby day, imo. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just my $0.02.

We went to Disney World at the beginning of October. I expressed my concern to my Fiance who reminded me that my ring was meant to be worn and should be fine as it fits!

We went for a week and the only day I didn’t wear it was at the waterpark, when I left it in the room safe ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I don’t know where you’re travelling from but mine journeyed with me from the UK to US and back again no issues ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
