    I may have misread, but this appears to be an option offered only to off duty LEOs. I am not confident they would offer this to us commoners.

    Here are several reasons:
    - because some potential bad guy can
    - because Disney security doesn't, but some bad guy could
    - because even if Disney security did carry, they might be minutes away when seconds count
    - because even if Disney security carried and were nearby, you are one more shooting back to further tip the odds in your favor
    - because you don't take any chances
    - because you carry everywhere you go
    - because it's not unlawful
    - because you want to
    - just because

    All of those places had crowds of innocent people in them just like you would have at Disney World...
    First, does anyone know if this sets a record for oldest resurrected thread at USA Carry? ;-)~

    Second, when I started reading the current posts, my first thought was of Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen, TX. That event gave birth to one of the most compelling speakers on the 2nd Amendment I've ever heard. Her name is Suzanna Hupp, and she was a CWP holder who followed the law and left her weapon in her car as she and both of her parents went into Luby's that day. She survived. Neither of her parents did.

    Substitute the word "Luby's" with "Disney" or any other "gun-free zone" venue, and tell us you would disagree with her statement before Congress during the Assault Weapons Ban hearings that she would rather be sitting in jail on a felony rap and have her parents still alive than be able to say she was a good citizen because she followed the law.

    This is the answer to whether or not to disarm upon every request from a property owner or corporate representative, and internally, that answer for me is always, "No Way!"

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    There are no signs. And despite some statements here to the contrary, it isn't really illegal to carry at Disney World, at least not to the extent being suggested by some. It's a violation of Disney policy. If they had signs up, or could otherwise prove prior knowledge on your part, the most they could get you for under Florida law is misdemeanor trespassing. But they don't do that either, mainly for public relations reasons. Arresting otherwise peaceful patrons at Disney World isn't exactly the image they want to present.

    I do love the 2nd amendment and do not want to lose my gun rights but if Disney states no weapons than that's what that means.
    I will follow the law. If a place like Disney has a rule that says no gun, I will not go there. If I am forced to go there, such as going with family, I will carry anyway. I'd rather get asked to leave than carried out in a body bag.

    I have not been to Disney in years but I could of sworn I saw a sign (in very small print) that stated no firearms in the park. That is the reason why I asked the ticket lady about the sign years back. She asked me if I had a weapon and I stated I did and I showed her my creds(badge). That is when the security guard told me the regulation / policy stated that all weapons had to be checked in.

    Also when I was in the secret security room I did ask about CCW permit holders. He stated that they also can check their weapons in the same way.

    Here is a suggestion to anyone who is going in the future, ask?

    And here is a good story that is true by the way. I was with my wife and 3 kids when I was able to walk through the security checkpoint and the guard did not check my fanny bag (yes I still carry the fanny pack to conceal my gun). I was so busy with the kids when I forgot to check my weapon in. So I walked up to the next security guard after getting off the train and told him I needed to check my duty weapon into security. His eyes got HUGE and he asked me if I was carrying a gun. I stated I was and I told him I was a off duty LEO. He got on his radio and called for backup. I thought at that point I was going to be tossed out of the park and my wife was mad as heck cause she hated that I carried that gun every second of the day.

    About 5 minutes pass when two well dressed males in suits with ear pieces (Secret Service agent look a likes) showed up. I asked the guys in the suits what the problem was. He asked me for my credentials so I handed them over. He looked at the creds and he asked how I was able to get all the way into the park with a gun. I told him that I had forgotten to tell the security guard at the front and I had got so tied up with the kids. They then said it was a big deal because security was to search my fanny bag before I entered the park. I told him it was a simple mistake by them and people make mistakes.

    They escorted me back to the secret security room and some "Big Wig" vice president from the head of security was waiting for me. To make a very long story short they pulled out a photo lineup of the security guards that were working the check point and wanted me to point out the guard who let me in the park. I told him I was not going to point him out so that he would be fired. I stated it was my fault and not the security guards fault and that I took full responsibility for the mistake.

    The good news is they paid for my stroller for the day ($30 bucks) and they gave me and the family a free day in the park ($300 +). Now that is some good service. The only bad news is when I returned hours later to get my weapon the VP was there and he tried again for me to finger the guy out of the photo lineup. Again I told him I was not going to be the one to get some poor old man fired. (This happened back in 2008)

  7. Just carried concealed in Epcot and Hollywood Studios today. Nobody asked and nobody cared. Didn't even see any signs, although you better by God not have food or drink on the bus :)

    If I print or otherwise "unconceal" in Texas, it is a problem, so I'm very comfortable with Disney's don't ask - don't tell.

    Remember, they DO check your bags, so don't put your piece in a purse or fanny pack.

    Spare mags or speedloaders might not be wise either.

    As a general rule I try to avoid masses of people clamoring all over each other in the manner that you find at most amusement parks. It's just not my idea of a fun time. I'll probably only be able to avoid it for so long as my kids get older though, but we're closer to Disneyland and I don't think I'll have the option to carry at that point.

    Was there in May. Had a Ruger LC9 in my pocket, no problems. Same goes for Universal and Kennedy Space place.

    We did so much park-hopping, I found it easier to let my wife take the bag through the "search" line whilst I walked through the "guests without bags" line. Some days I carried my Ruger SP101 .357 mag revolver and some days I carried my Taurus Millenium Pro .45 ACP. I carried in the Bulldog bellyband I wear when running, so I could wear whatever clothing I desired.

    Also, the gun I wasn't carrying remained in my personal gun safe in the resort room (safe was in a drawer).

    And I never once saw any sign that said "no firearms" or anything similar, including "ghostbuster" gun signs.
