Well I live in california where you cant go to a concert or other public places even walking down the street without seeing or smelling weed smokers

I have a friend who snuck in after MK was closed. He used a kayak and paddled in to Tom Sawyer Island. He was eventually caught and banned for life.

i wonder if Disney bans people that sue them. I always thought that they should.

'Oh, your 3 year old daughter got burnt with the hot cheese and your sueing? Okay, no problem. Here's your settlement money... Oh, and along with all that money you received in damages, here's a lifetime ban, so you don't have to relive that trauma.'

too many people sue Disney for stupid things that are really more parenting neglect than anything else. always hate when i read those stories.

I knew someone who had an injury from a roller coaster at a small park, and had sued and settled - but as part of the settlement she can't return to the park.

Disney has invested in software that does that. They are one of the customers that one of the companies we were looking at touts, and for this reason.

And it catches hair cuts. It won't catch significant facial changes (plastic surgery or puberty - but I suspect they aren't looking for people who pulled childhood pranks, but people who are a significant liability to have in the parks). It isn't 100% yet, but its pretty good. (Its also used by the TSA, but I can't remember the company).

My question is how do they now it is a banned person when making a reservation. So many people have the same names. You don't give you social security number when booking a reservations and if you were a kid when you did something - I would assume as an adult you have a different address.

I spoke with a atty friend of mine about this a few years ago.

His opinion was that Disney doesn't spend alot of time trying to catch you sneaking on property or stopping you from staying at a resort.

What is will do is if your cuaght on property after being banned, it can raise the level of criminal charges againist you.

Same way how all those High School Reunion people find you to attend your reunion, even though you may have moved multiple times and stuff...

DH knows someone who was banned. He used to work in the college program. He told me a story of how one particularly busy day (I think it was actually July 4th, but don't quote me) his manager sent two of the smaller girl employees down into the tunnels with money from the counter service registers to be put into a safe. When they got off the elevator they were met by two guys in masks with weapons (knives, I think) who convinced them to hand over the money. Disney eventually figured out who it was because the manager was not supposed to be sending other people to do that job and they knew she had to be involved. They all got prosecuted. And banned.

This part caught my eye, and I was somewhat concerned about it. Given that there are restrictions on many people labeled as convicted sexual offenders, does Disney, as a matter of principle, not ban them from property?

I don't know the specifics of Florida law, but Disney may not be legally permitted to restrict their entry. If their presence does not specifically violate anything (conditions of release, restraining orders, etc.), then Disney banning them prior to any violation could be considered an infringement of rights.

They would either have to do something on property that allows Disney to ban them, or Florida would have to pass a law banning them from theme parks, and the law would have to pass constitutional appeals.

If I'm reading correctly, the manager schemed with the guys with weapons to get the money? So the guys had to be employees too, to have access to the tunnels? What a weird situation.

I was just reading a book in which the author told of his friend sneaking into Epcot (w/o paying of course). He was caught and banned. A good decade later he was planning his honeymoon and his bride to be wanted to go to WDW. While making reservations he was put on hold. A few minutes later a supervisor came on the phone and the conversation went something like this:

Super: Is your name John Doe?
Banee: Yes it is, is there a problem?
Super: Did you formerly reside at 123 Elm St., Anywhere, USA?
Banee: Yes....why is there a problem?
Super: I'm sorry sir but we will not be able to make a reservation for you now or in the future. Have a magical day.
At which point the super hung up. So apparently, they do keep your name on file and if there's a match they'll question you. If you have a common name you might find yourself getting questioned. How they would differentiate between one John Smith and another unless they asked for a SSN I don't know.
