FL: 9 Investigates crackdown on sex offenders inside Disney World


A six-month-long Eyewitness News investigation has uncovered sweeping background checks at Disney parks in central Florida — checks targeting registered sex offenders.

Investigative reporter Christopher Heath dug through hundreds of pages of Orange County Sheriff’s Office trespass reports, and they show a consistent pattern of documented sex offenders getting kicked off of Disney properties. Full Article

soon… anyone can instantly deny service by swiping your driver license through a system.. Even though the Megan list should be use to inform the public for its protection not denial of service…

And we continue to see how vile – ignorant, prejudiced, and stupid people can be towards the children of registrants. They should be ashamed!

First, I agree…to a point… about Disney refusing service to certain people. That said, it is not a black and white issue. For instance, there is nothing in their TOS that indicates that registered sex offenders (gradations notwithstanding) are banned from the establishment. This is easily actionable. Now, to more pertinent points: The registrant had purchased the tickets in conjunction with his family’s tickets. Had the establishment had simply denied selling him his ticket in the first place, then the registrant may have planned his family vacation differently. Instead, he allocated hundreds of dollars, perhaps thousands when travel, hotel, and… Read more »

I’ll admit I did not spend a whole lot of time, but I looked both at the Terms of Service of Disneyworld as well as the Municipal Codes of Orange (FL) and Osceola Counties. Nowhere did I find anything about registrants being prohibited from entering the park in particular or certain areas in general. Given the latter, how can Disney have forwarded the matter to the Sheriff’s department? While they are a private company and can do as they please (with advance notice / policy as a reasonable person would expect) I do not see how this is a matter… Read more »

I’m sure it does… Anyone remember that stink awhile back about a sex offender who’s register address was in the heart of Disney (I think the main hotel in the actual park)

I’m not certain what states make it illegal to deny business services to registrants, however CA does but appears to do nothing to enforce it. Face book is in the business of thumbing their noses at the law but I have not heard of anyone challenging this. Does anyone know if CA has taken face book to task about their policy or do they just side with money? Nothing that comes out of Florida should shock anyone but we have even grown used to these types of practices here on the West Coast. The problem with the list at large… Read more »

“Legislation proposed in Washington state last week would allow businesses to deny service to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population and others, based on religious differences.”

“And others”? In certain respects it would seem society/humanity is regressing.

makes a person sick – for lack of better terms. This whole thing is a very slippery slope. We will realize the loss of freedoms way after the fact and it will be with grave difficulty, hardship and strife – that we all know too well – IF and when we can recover them. The whole country should be paying attention to each and every one of these laws. I’m afraid too many citizens are asleep at the wheel, leaving governance solely to elected officials. Will the country wake up only after everyone’s rights are infringed upon and we are… Read more »

This is a really, really, really disturbing article. In essence, people need to really take notice of this. In summary, the thought of a business establishment banning someone for a prior criminal history is highly disturbing! I mean, what’s next? Background checks prior to entering amusement parks? Malls? Movie Theaters? Water Parks? Maybe in another 10-years we will see signs stating: Those convicted of felonies aren’t admitted? Don’t take this lightly. This is very, very serious. What’s next? Did you know there are some states requiring Sex Offenders to special drivers licenses stating they are SEX OFFENDERS? Uh, can you… Read more »

I did want to add one item. This was a little thought provoking. I actually visited Marina Land San Diego about a year ago. I had a wonderful time. ALthough, something happened when I entered the park that really caught my attention. After paying and just prior to entering the gate, EVERYONE was required to provide a thumb print? I was a little perplexed. In essence, I wasn’t paranoid about anything, but it was kind of shocking? I’ve never entered any establishment where I’m required to provide a thumb print? What if i had refused? What do they do with… Read more »

this sure smacks of big brother, not knowing what is going to be done with the data.
Did this happen after you paid. I would have refused and asked for a refund, of course, they know doing so would spoil the fun for the family. This should cause concern for everyone. It is apparent that freedom has become a myth in the digital age.

ODisney turns away sex offenders but people on there are not all preditors some are on there for indecent exposure or whatever else there’s all kinds of reasons why people are on it. I think if they’re not gonna let people on the registry in then it should be the high risk ones that are a major risk to the public.

What Disney needs is for everyone to refuse to allow them to scan their thumb prints.

Since someone just mentioned this issue in another thread, I figured I’d make this comment here to let the new people aware of this. I have also heard that Disney uses facial recognition software too at the entry gate (if not throughout the park). But really, how many RC have actually committed any crime within their parks or hotels? Gang activity is always the biggest problem for any amusement park, that’s why most have metal detectors. if you want to go to a Disney park and/or hotel, just put the room in someone else’s name and come with a prepaid… Read more »
