When her husband brought his firearm to Walt Disney World on their family vacation, a 44-year-old visitor from Miami got into an altercation with him. She didn’t like the fact that he had a gun in the first place.

That gun got the woman in trouble within hours.

When she attempted to enter Disney’s Hollywood Studios later that morning, she told officials she had no knowledge the revolver was in the family’s cooler. Her family vacation was disrupted since she was barred from entering Disney property.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s incident report, she claimed police she packed a cooler with drinks and food for the family’s day at the theme park and mistook the 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun for a battery charger when she walked through Disney security. The gun had a 12-round magazine.

She indicated “she did not have any idea that her husband’s firearm was in the left pocket… She felt embarrassed about the situation,” according to the report on the latest instance involving someone being caught carrying a pistol at Disney.

On May 28, the woman arrived at the park pushing a pram while carrying the cooler containing the pistol.

She triggered Disney’s high-tech security detector, and Disney security discovered the gun during bag check.

The woman was removed from Disney property. The sheriff’s office determined that there was reasonable cause to believe the lady was carrying a concealed firearm and referred the matter to the state attorney’s office. However, because she has not yet been charged with a crime, we will not name her.

A year ago, the woman’s husband purchased the rifle and obtained a concealed weapons permit. According to the sheriff’s report, she “stated she disagreed with him having a firearm.”

The woman had never been arrested or charged with a felony in Florida before, according to the sheriff’s report.

Wdwnt.com contacted the woman for comment. She stated that the incident occurred at the start of their vacation. She refused to say anything else because she hadn’t yet received the outcome of her lawsuit. On Tuesday, she stated, “I wish I could talk about it. It’s been stressful.”

Every year, millions of people visit theme parks. A few people are caught with guns on Disney’s private property, which clearly prohibits weapons. They may be arrested and prosecuted with a felony if they do not have a concealed permit. These types of arrests are common at Disney.
