The Legacy of Harry Potter: Selfish Adults?

Apparently the Universal Studios theme park in Florida has added a new section: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

But, this was a bit of a jolt to read:

We arrived at the gates bright and early Sunday morning, accompanied by the Universal publicist who would be helping us navigate the lines. The park looked spectacular: the Hogwarts Express steaming away, the snow-capped village of Hogsmeade nestled behind it, and Hogwarts castle up on a hill just as I’d imagined it. We’d left our children at home; they just would have cramped our style. (When the seventh Potter book was released, we sent our daughter to her grandparents’ for the weekend so we could read our two hardcovers in peace.)

How do you leave your kids at home when you go to the newest, coolest theme park? A park created, I might add, FOR KIDS.
