Dear Trish ,
Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney WorldŽ Resort. We sincerely
appreciate you choosing Walt Disney WorldŽ Resort for your vacation in
We continually review our safety and security measures and focus on
improvement in procedures and use of new technologies as they become
available. However, we do not discuss the details of our security
measures because to do so would compromise their effect.
We understand your concerns regarding you and your family's safety, and
would like to offer you some information regarding our policy.
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.
We look forward to your visit!
