    Default Disney World Concealed Carry

    My wife and I are taking our kids to Disney World (Orland) in January. I understand that Disney has a no weapons policy. However, I am wondering if any of you have any real world experience with Disney World. Can you concealed carry there? Do they have posted signs or metal detectors? I plan on taking my gun because I would like to fly with it as I have never done this. I may just lock it in the room when I get there, assuming there are safes. The last thing I need on a family vacation though is a MAJOR HASSLE. Suggestions please!

    Default Hope This Helps

    If you have a valid permit that Florida honors you are good to go. I was there last December for a company Christmas party and carried the enter time. I do not remember seeing any no gun signs but even if they were posted they hold no weight in Florida. Only thing you have to be aware of is they do a quick search of your bags at the gates. Just keep your firearm on you and you should have no problems. Hope you have a safe and fun time!

    If you have any other question feel free to ask I'll try to answer them in a timely manner.

    Ops sorry Torch new here but should have known better. Here you go everything and more you'll ever need to know about Florida gun laws.

    Florida state statute
    790.06 License to carry concealed weapon or firearm.--

    Bet you anything that Goofy has a shoulder-holstered 1911 under that suit.

    Nope there was a husband and wife (both employees) fired from Disney a year or so ago because the wife admitted to having a firearm stored in the car. No warnings or anything. So if Goofy is packing, he is making sure it is concealed from everyone, including other employees and management.

    Raybsc, you are reading it correctly. You are not breaking any laws by carrying concealed with a valid permit into Disney World. Worse thing that could happen if someone sees you carrying is ask you to leave. If that happens I would leave or secure your firearm because refusal could get you armed trespassing.

    As far as the employee's getting fired, it was not illegal for them to be carrying while on the job but Disney has the right to dictate what company policy is. If they say no guns and you carry no legal action can be taken against you but they can fire you for breach of company policy.

    Like I said I carried all day there awhile back and had no issues what so ever.

    There's also some value in one of Ektarr's Laws: "Don't ask questions you may not really want to hear the answer to."
