Disney World Resort & Park Concealed Carry Policies

Dear Editor,

I am a USCCA member, and I recently made a trip to the Walt Disney World Resorts in Florida. I’ve consulted many a website, including USCCA’s, and talked to a lot of gun owners as well as searching the Disney websites high and low and never found a published word about their concealed carry policies. Even my brother-in-law who is a Florida narcotics detective could not answer the question for me. I finally located a source within Disney’s organization that sent me the attached email. Their policies are quite clear. I thought this might be helpful to other USCCA members.

Re: Disney World’s Concealed Carry Policy

Dear Phil,

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.

If you have questions or need further assistance, feel free to contact us.
