    The guy asked a reasonable question, although one that gets asked at least every other month. I'm no fan of RatLand, but I hardly see where the I-haven't-been-there-in-twenty-years and I-refuse-to-take-the-grandkids-there stuff adds anything to the conversation.
    The advice to NOT go is reasonable. Not going is a solution to the problem of CC. Many think it's not worth the trip.

    I'm sure I'll be making a trip down there in the next couple of years, as soon as the niece and nephews are old enough to enjoy it. I plan on having a gun with me the entire time. I have family down there that own a farm. Their workers a robbed quite often, and a few have even been beaten when they refused. If I feel the need to carry in my relatively safe town, I'll certainly feel the need to carry there.

    I don't know what guns you have, but have you considered pocket carry? The chances of being caught with that are pretty slim. You could even take a larger gun for the drive and then just lock it up before you go into the park. A decent safe cabled to the seat frame should be safe enough, IMO.

    Your answer would be reasonable if he asked if it was worthwhile to go. He didn't ask that. He asked about legal requirements of carrying/not carrying in the theme park. I can assume we will now look forward to your sage advice popping up in every such thread, right?

    Q: I have to drive through a post office parking lot to drop my kids off for karate. Are there legal issues?

    RKflorida: Don't go. Karate is overrated for kids.

    Pure genius.

    Now you got it. BTW, Karate is overrated for kids, and don't get me started on soccer.

    My kiddo got nearly a full ride to a Division I school by playing soccer. I love me some soccer.

    So I'll enlighten you. The feds say that since I have a CC permit issued by the state in which the schools are located in, and that permit required a background check, I am A-OK. Seriously, a minimal amount of research would have saved you the trouble of looking like an idiot twice...

    Edit: and because I foresee some other uninformed comment from your direction, I'll make it easy... Check out (2) (B): http://www.gunlaws.com/Gun_Free_School_Zones_Act.pdf. And thank you? For what? Unjustly accusing me of being a criminal? I'd be more apt to expect an apology...
    Interesting. I read that and some commentary and it seems to say that YOU MUST HAVE A LICENSE ISSUED BY THE STATE IN WHICH THE SCHOOL ZONE IS LOCATED. That would exclude anyone carrying by reciprocity...

    I would bring along the weapon and secure it as best as you can while in the park. I went to Disney in FL for the first time in my life ever this past December. I did NOT carry in the park. I love rides too much and did not want to risk it. Disney was amazing, even as an adult it was an incredible experience, my wife and I are already talking about when we can go again.

    Mikey hates everything.

    If family is going, check to make sure you are not going while the GLBT crowd is on their annual visit.

    We attended almost 20 years ago, I think that was enough for me.
    Yoda, I am, yes.

Don't they have a 7 flags over whatever near where you live? Well, at least you'll be among the anti-gun, fantasy loving folks. BTW, beware of rude Brazilians who will lift your wallet and trip you to get in line first (seriously). I live 40 miles from that festering sore of an amusement park and haven't been back for about 25 years. Although I'd like to visit Texas, but not in summer. Bottom line: Stay home, and buy a really nice gun with the money you save.

    This comment was brought to you buy a Florida tourism / Disney corp volunteer spokesman.
    Ok, maybe tongue-in-cheek, ehe? :-) Well yes, it is hot and humid in the summer in FL and perhaps not the best time to go there but with the grandkids along (along with their mom and dad) that's the only time of the year we can schedule such a trip. Comparing Six Flags to the Magic Kingdom is certainly not an apples to apples comparison. I am pro-gun and one of those evil Conservatives the Left hates, but also a fantasy loving folk. In the realm of fiction reading, writing and other forms of entertainment. It was indeed a great vacation. We walked our feet off every day returning to the hotel well after dark and I'd do it again. Just different perspectives that each of us has on life's experiences. My wife and I are sort of (it's complicated) semi-retired, love to travel and are very active so there you go.

    Oh believe me, I thought about that and checked to make sure our scheduled visits did not overlap. I guess it boils down to my wife and I being kids at heart. Or perhaps we're just immature, but we really do like that sort of thing. It's not something we're going to do every year or even every few years. With our travel interests and our age in life, who knows if we'll ever make it back there. Too may other places to go to do too many repeats.

    On the carry side of the discussion, no I did not carry in any of the parks. I did while driving the two days there and two days returning but during the time we were in the parks I left it locked in the car. Also since we had two of our grandkids sharing our hotel room I left it locked in the car overnight. We never ventured into questionable areas. I know problems can pop up anywhere but sometimes, well I guess I'm just going to risk it.

    That's the way it is with my wife and I. We're in our mid 60's and still physically fit and in good health and enjoy active pursuits so walking around a theme park all day and riding on a number of different rides and attractions until closing time is something we're going to do and enjoy as long as our health and physical conditioning allow. As avid lovers of the imaginative arts and reading as well as movies, it's a true fantasy world for us. Besides, we got a kick out of the enjoyment our four grandkids got out of the experience.

    Well that is akin to the answers I have to correct for in my life as a photography mentor and adviser. Someone asks a question looking for advice on which telephoto zoom lens they should buy to meet their specific need and some wise *** chimes in with "all zoom lenses are crap and you should only use a prime." Obviously the know-it-all can not read because the question was not "should I buy a zoom or a prime?" The only responses which should be put forward are those which answer the question directly as it was asked. I have to then spend a lot of time getting rid of the confusion created in the mind of the student. No where in my question did I ask for advise on whether or not I should go. So advise to NOT go is totally out of line and irrelevant, having nothing to do with the question.

    Ah well, another person ignores my valuable advice. I've been getting alot of that lately, I wonder why?
