    Carry at Universal Studios Orlando??

    Excuse me if this has been discussed but couldn't find anything using the search option. My family of 5 is going on vacation to Florida over Christmas and we plan on going to Universal Studios in Orlando. Is CC allowed there? I'm from Iowa so my guard is going to be on an all time high traveling to the big city!! Anything special I need to know about carry in Florida?

    short answer, NO

    FLA law does not restrict carrying there however any property owner can set their own rules. Universal does not allow carrying on their property.
    That said, you can try to get away with it and the worst that can happen is that they ask you to leave, failure to comply with their request to leave could result in an arrest for armed trespass.

    OP be aware...the "armed trespass" apvbguy mentioned above, is a FELONY in Florida. Even a small pocket knife will constitute being armed.
    If you are "asked to leave" somewhere in Florida...do not hesitate...leave.
    Just an FYI

    Per FL statute definition, an "ordinary pocketknife" is not considered a weapon (unless used as such) and can be carried concealed without a CWFL.

    Not to argue with you, but if you are caught trespassing and you have an "ordinary" pocketknife in your posession it
    WILL BE considered a weapon.
    I'm not argueing that it can be carried without a CWFL.

    I was at the Disney parks 2 weeks ago.The security is a joke. They check purses and bags but no body frisks. I could have had TNT around my waist or nitro in my pocket. I might have even been carrying. Its perceived security just like at the airports.

    No metal detectors or wands used during the day this past October, probe bags with stick; however, they would close the park and then reopen for Halloween nights (or some name like that) and they were setting up walk through metal detectors for that, saw them as I was leaving the park. Different levels of security were being used for regular park hours vs after park hours.

    P.S. There isn't anything in that park (or any other) I be willing to walk through a metal detector to see (I'm not saying I was carrying ); and it's about a mile & half walk back to the nearest trolley stop, just saying.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    Haha, I moved to Florida 8 years ago and live less than an hour from Orlando. You want to know how many times I've been to Disney or Universal.... ZERO! :P

    I never cease to be amazed at the cocoons that some of the posters on this forum seem to isolate themselves in. There's more to life and living than carrying a gun every waking moment

    Carry at Universal Studios Orlando??

    Did an extensive search last week before going to Orlando Disney world and other parks with the a family

    Coming from IL it was the first time cc all the time and first couple of days was bit uncomfy. Kahr pm9 iwb

    Later was a second nature. We were in FL for a week and never had a problem. 4 of those days were in the parks

    One day we drove to Clearwater and my gps took me off the hwy into some very interesting hood. Having my kahr with me made me feel a bit better. Never had to use it which is a good thing

    So, as Long as you don't show it is all good. Thank you for prior info
