    Disney World Hotels: can I check a firearm?

    I am planning a trip to Disney World. I know Disney prohibits firearms. Following the changes of last December, does Disney still allow one to store a handgun at the front desk of the resort hotels? I would like to bring it into the hotel in a Nanovault and check it at the desk. Disney is just one stop on a long trip, and I would rather not make the whole trip without carrying.

    If not, does the Florida parking lot law provision mean that I am allowed to leave it locked in a safe in the car parked at the hotel?

    You can check your cash and credit cards because you ain't never getting them back.


    "If not, does the Florida parking lot law provision mean that I am allowed to leave it locked in a safe in the car parked at the hotel?"

    Technically, yes. You as a customer are protected, but you may have to convince DW of that. They see you only as a pigeon to be plucked bare.

    No public or private employer may prohibit any customer, employee, or invitee from possessing any legally owned firearm when such firearm is lawfully possessed and locked inside or locked to a private motor vehicle in a parking lot and when the customer, employee, or invitee is lawfully in such area.

    I'd keep it in my room. I'd much rather be able to defend my family vs the very small risk that someone could find it. If you don't tell them you have it how would they ever know? Hide it when you leave if you are worried about someone finding it.

    All of which forces the question, why would a believer in and supporter of gun rights and the 2nd Amendment ever spend a nickel at Disney?

    No public or private employer may violate the privacy rights of a customer, employee, or invitee by verbal or written inquiry regarding the presence of a firearm inside or locked to a private motor vehicle in a parking lot or by an actual search of a private motor vehicle in a parking lot to ascertain the presence of a firearm within the vehicle. Further, no public or private employer may take any action against a customer, employee, or invitee based upon verbal or written statements of any party concerning possession of a firearm stored inside a private motor vehicle in a parking lot for lawful purposes. A search of a private motor vehicle in the parking lot of a public or private employer to ascertain the presence of a firearm within the vehicle may only be conducted by on-duty law enforcement personnel, based upon due process and must comply with constitutional protections.

    Disney can't ask and you don't have to tell. They cannot search vehicles solely for suspicion of firearms.

    This you will not see:

    Like @OldVet says, Lock it in your car in a locking case in your trunk before you arrive at Disney, and forget about it until you are off property upon departure.

    According to the web site for the Coronado Springs resort, for example, they do have a safe in the room. That's where I would put it. I suspect most of their other hotels have room safes. It certainly is easy enough to check.

    Been to Disney once and once was enough. Lock it in your car, lock your car and pray everything is where it was when ya left it. If there are any safes left in the room, consider the things already compromised.

    So what happens in the remote chance that DW somehow discovers the handgun is your room? Are you breaking an actual law or just DW "policy"?

    Every hotel has a universal code or key that unlocks all of their safes. It's incase you forget the code you program. The problem is shady employees know the code/have a key. You lock your valuables in the safe then leave. When you come back your stuff is missing from the "locked" safe. The hotel is responsible for what's missing.
