    They can't press criminal charges but they can still press civil charges, such as trespassing. They have never done so in the past to my knowledge, probably because they don't want the publicity. However, they have in many instances, possibly all, issued lifetime bans to people caught with firearms on their property in violation of the prohibition. This in all probability would allow them the ability to press criminal trespass charges should that guest ever return, certainly far more likely if that guest ever returned carrying a firearm again.
    .
    A restaurant that serves alcohol in the instance you listed is restricted because alcohol is served (dispensed) in the entire 'portion of the establishment'. An outdoor booth within an establishment cannot use that restriction for an entire establishment because the booth doesn't occupy the entire portion of the establishment, nor does it serve in the entire portion. If that rule were to be so used, an entire city could ban guns because they had one booth selling alcohol somewhere within the city limits that allowed you to walk away with the alcoholic beverage. Some states may make special provisions for such circumstances. For instance, some states have specific carry restrictions in major sports stadiums or arenas. Disney World actually tried to get special consideration in the Florida statutes for carry by their employees but the Florida legislature didn't give it to them, so it's unlikely any special consideration was granted for 'portion of an establishment' restrictions either.

    Just the other day a guy at Disney left his gun on the dumbo ride. It fell out of his holster. I have a close association with the management at Disney and can tell you this for sure. THEY HAVE A NO GUN POLICY. they do random pat downs and security check. If they catch you with a gun or weapon of any type you will be told to leave, they will call the cops(despite if they can do anything legally) and you will be trespassed from Disney. Sounds like a great way to ruin your vacation. I'm all about carrying my CWP but save the aggrevation for yourself and family and lock it in the safe.

    Criminals can carry whether on duty or off duty.

    This is an old thread, but I figured I would throw in an update aince I am stuck going to Disney this coming weekend and my wife wanted to make sure of the policy. Disney is still sending the same response when asked about having a firearm at the parks and resorts...

    "Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World® Resort.

    It may interest you to know we have a strict policy regarding firearms.
    Our policy is that no guns are permitted in our Theme Parks or Resorts.
    If a resort guest brings one on property, it must be locked up in the
    safe deposit boxes at the front desk, not in a room safe. If guests
    visiting our Theme Parks bring in firearms, it must either be left in
    their vehicle, or checked in with security when entering the park. Only
    on-duty law enforcement officers whose agency has jurisdiction at the
    Walt Disney World Resort may carry any weapon."

    Figured I would update this with what happened... despite explaining that there was no way that Disney would know if I kept my firearm locked in the hotel room, my wife insisted I followed their process. Confronted with the relatively minor chnace of needing a weapon at a Disney resort vs. my wife strangling me in my sleep, I opted to follow Disney's procedures. Here it is in case anyone is wondering...
    We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Kindani Village, I can't say if things are different at the other resorts, but my experience was...
    At check in I informed the clerk that I needed to check a firearm. No shock or surprise or attitude from the clerk, just explained they would need to call security who would assist in checking in my weapon. Had to wait about half an hour or so until security showed up, we then went into a room behind the front desk where they had a cabinet with about 10 safe deposit boxes. I filled out a form about my weapon (serial #, make, model, caliber, # of rounds). I then placed it in the box (I kept it locked in the Nanovault that I used to bring it down to Florida) along with my ammunition. It was locked with two keys, I got one and the other was kept at the front desk.
    On check out I informed the clerk that I needed to retrieve my weapon, they called security, waited about 15 minutes, we went back to the room, unlocked the box, everything was there, no problems. I signed that I had received my weapon and ammunition back, and I was good to go.
    While I was not thrilled with not having my weapon at least it was on the premises, the process of checking it in and out was fairly easy, and my wife didn't kill me for "trying to ruin our vacation".

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!

    I planned my trip to WDW/Magic Kingdom for yesterday, and, knowing their policy, left my pistol in my room. I was amazed that, when I took the big boat across the lake and then passed thru security, all they did was look in my backpack. I didn't have to empty my pockets. They had no metal detector. They had no one wanding people. I could have carried my 9mm on my hip, and they wouldn't have had a clue! I was rather frustrated--not only that I didn't bring my pistol, but that their security was so lax that any bad guy could get in there with a weapon and wreak havoc at any moment!!

    you could have carried it but how disappointed would your kids have been if you inadvertently exposed it and then got thrown out of not only the park but off of the property?

    If I ever had kids, they would be raised to understand that daddy being able to carry a gun is more important than hanging out with goofy. The last thing I could ever want is for us to be taken out by a cell of tangos because the Magic Kingdom forbade me from carrying my arsenal.
