I live fairly close, been there--done that--and I hate the T-shirts.
I would leave my Glock-36 in the trunk, but I do take my KelTec P-3AT in a pocket holster in with me...who's going to know? (And it's legal...)
I want to know that my trip to and from the car is going to be a safe one.

This prevents FL AG from enforcing 790.251 specifically on behalf of customers, but can enforce this specific statute on behalf of employees. Disney’s Exemption from FS 790.251 (due to a Federal License to handle Fireworks) was shot down. If you are arrested for having a gun on someone’s private property in FL it is after they asked you to leave and you refused, not because they placed a sign on a door or in a parking lot, unless that place is already illegal under either federal or state law. I have helped most of my bosses at work get their licenses but still, they cannot make guns in the parking lot a fire able offense, they can fire for any other reason they want, but not for guns in the parking lot.IT IS ORDERED:
1. The plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction (document 9) is GRANTED IN PART and DENIED IN PART.
2. The defendant Attorney General is hereby enjoined from enforcing those portions of § 790.251, Florida Statutes, that address an employer’s treatment of customers or invitees. This injunction does not affect the Attorney General’s enforcement of those portions of § 790.251 that address an employer’s treatment of an “employee” as defined in the statute—that is, a worker who has a valid Florida permit to carry a concealed weapon.
790.251 Protection of the right to keep and bear arms in motor vehicles for self-defense and other lawful purposes; prohibited acts; duty of public and private employers; immunity from liability; enforcement.--

You do not work for them, they work for you.
I have and will carry Glock 26 IWB while at disney. Not worried about inside the park but outside Orlando not so good. If you use the search tab above you will find pages on this subject it has been discussed before. I tip my hat tot he security guard who last week notice one of the members clip from a knife. He requested that the knife be placed inside his pocket.
The choice is up to you just be remindfull that the park is loaded with CCTV for loss prevention. Walls are paper not cement.
Enjoy your trip.
Yes, they have some Goofy Mickey Mouse rules written by idiots from Pluto.

Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.
I removed it before you posted /
I went and read the def.
and it has been refined since I lived there.
it used to be a catch all type verbage.
no intention to mispost any information. sorry
Well, from what I gather in this thread is that you can carry but it's not advised. If you're caught, you're out, but not in legal trouble. Sounds like my Thunderwear/SmartCarry with a snub would be the E-Ticket. Ok, I know many of you may not know what that means, but I'm old and I visited Disneyland in California back when I was a lot younger.

I too was at disney world a bout two years ago in November, and on our way into Magic Kingdom I was quietly approached by Disney clean clothes security (honestly thought it was someone going to try to get me to buy something) regarding my pocket knife. I had a CRKT KISS clipped to the inside of my pocket, and was asked to just slip it inside my pocket.
Honestly I was fairly impressed they noticed it, and overall impressed with how they operated.
I neglected to mention the 3 other knives I had any anything else that my have been hidden though
I'm with the carry it crowd. If you stay until closing the parking lots get a little isolated. I like to have a friend for company.
Took the family to Disney in florida just before Christmas. Did not feel the need to try and carry in the park, too crowded of an enviroment to play hero if anything happened anyway.
After the monorail ride to the main gate as we were walking up to the bag check lines one of the uniformed Disney officers asked about the Emerson I keep clipped in my front pocket. He very nicely told me that I could not carry the knife into the park but the had some small lockers he refered to as knife lockers I could use. We walked over to them, I deposited my trusty Emerson in one and kept. the key for picking up the knife later.
This leads me to think out of sight out of mind. Had the knife been in my pocket instead of clipped within eyesight no one would have questioned.
I made the comment that I was licenced to carry in all but a half dozen states at which point he asks if I was carrying concealed. I replied that I was not for the reason I stated above.
Where these lockers seperate from the other lockers? Located by the train station?
What prevents you from returning to the lockers later in the day and retreaving the item that security asked you to place in the locker?
Most likely cameras and the people watching them. ;)
I won't carry in Disney. Put it in the trunk. Not worth the hassle. Sure something could happen but the best strategy to dealing with it is instant deescalation by getting out of the area and then informing the staff. I'd dread a shootout breaking out. With so many people in the area you're going to have a huge risk of hitting a bystander and it would not surprise me if there are some armed plainclothes security who might mistake you for the aggressor. Or you God forbid mistake them for the BG's friends.
Hitchking, As you come off the monorail the lockers are located in a small round building down to the right. Looks like it might be a place for the Disney LEO to take a break.
Zombie. I agree with you, the chance of mistaken ID much to big a chance.
