Authorities say a Michigan couple left their young foster children alone in their Walt Disney World hotel room for at least two hours while they hung out at the resort’s pool.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrested 49-year-old Stephen Simmons and 41-year-old Kimberly Simmons Friday and charged them child neglect. Housekeeping staff found the 2-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy Friday afternoon and waited five minutes for the parents to return. Security then called the sheriff’s office.

The husband and wife were released Saturday on $2,000 bail each.
