    If you wore a character costume (sayyy Goofy), you could carry whatever you wanted, but it might be hard to work the safety on a 1911 with only four digits per hand.

    It's been my experience you don't take anything to Six Flags, a water park, a carnival or Mickey Mouse's house you don't want to lose or damage. But your accomodations in my opinion is your safe castle.

    A better question would be: Why would we as gun owners, hunters and supporters of 2A want to give disney any of our hard earned dollars?

    I carried in the parks on our visit earlier this year. As I walked through the front gates and around the park, I was very conscious of just how soft a target Disney is. In this day and age, I believe Disney has a very large bullseye painted on it. In such an environment, I am going to carry unless their is legal authority that says I cannot.

    I don't think I want someone named goofy holding a gun, even if he is just a character.

    I have carried a firearm many times on Disney trips, but never in the theme parks. That does not mean to say that I am without a means to defend myself in the parks, but they are strictly defensive weapons as outlined under Florida statute. As far as the firearms go, I will carry in the car, and I will have a firearm in my room at night. I also carry if I decide to go outside my room for a late night smoke. Other than that, the firearm is disabled and locked in the room safe.

    I take my right to defend myself seriously, but I also recognize Disney's right to form what they think is a policy designed to protect their visitors. I do my best to reach a compromise position, and if I am ever discovered I will comply with their wishes to the best of my ability. I also take a firearm I won't cry over if I end up losing it. Think cheap and readily available, usually a Ruger LCP.

    I would not carry in a theme park simply because I would not want to see my expensive firearm flying through the air as I rode a roller coaster or other ride. I could also see a reasonable concern for an accidental discarge in such a case.

    True enough, but do you really think they will let someone as......"seasoned" as Cane on anything more jostling than the teacups?
    :p

    I can't go on rides so I'm not worried about losing my firearm.

    I know a guy that lives close to Disney and goes to the movie theater at the Disney Marketplace somewhat often and always carries there.

    Have you ever tried explaining to a young kid that you won't take them to Disney because they don't support your 2A rights?

    My wife's cousin is married to a Disney executive. We go there every year in December and check out the Christmas lights and stuff. Due to her position with Disney, I do not carry in the parks but I do carry while slchepping around the resort or out eating. During the day when we go to the parks I just lock it up in the room safe.

    Fresh off the trip to Disney, I decided to leave it in the truck. I should have brought it though cause Disney robbed me of over 100 bucks on food! Man that place went up!

    I HAD to go to Disney. I have 2 girls aged 5 and 8. I carried to the hotel room and carried at the Market place. Otherwise, it was pretty warm, and was wearing shorts with no belt. Did not carry in the park. Security checked all bags when entering. It did not feel intrusive to me.
    Like Ricky said, wouldnt it suck to lose your side arm on a roller coaster?

    When I went in December I just left mine in the truck as well, wasn't worth the risk. And hell yes the prices went up lol, my fiancee and I went there with two old park hopper passes and easily blew through decent cash on food and drink for two people. It was a good time though, I was content as possible and my fiancee had a blast, so I guess it's a win/win.

    What's the Problem!

    I live here in South Florida and I carry everywhere except the places I can't access because there is a Metal Detector that one must pass through. I don't really care what these companies rules are and unless they are State Rules and they have a Metal Detector at the entrance, then I carry my gun for self protection at all times, period!:mad:
