Michael Not Welcome?

I am not sure about him having visited the parks recently. For at least the past 5 years Michael Jackson was banned from all Disney Parks. I had thought that this was a rumor until I had it confirmed by a manager of WDW security. He created such a stir when he went and while dealing with the alleged molestation charges I guess Disney did not feel comfortable having him on property. Apparently he tried to go to DL at least once and was removed from the parks minutes after he arrived.

Actually, here is a video of him in the parks as recent as 2002.

Sorry, but that isn't true. He visited WDW a couple of times since I moved to the area in 2004. He stayed in a home not far from where I lived.

One Might Wonder: Is Room A Suite Deal?
By Bob Morris of The Sentinel Staff, December 17, 1993
Suite jinx?: In case you're wondering, no, the Michael Jackson Suite no longer exists at the Hotel Royal Plaza.The Lake Buena Vista hotel unveiled the suite back in 1985, when Jackson was regularly slipping in and out of Disney World, wearing disguises to avoid his fans. Jackson worked with a designer to decorate the two-bedroom, 16th floor suite at the Royal Plaza and donated memorabilia for the walls. And when he wasn't staying there, fans could rent the digs for upwards of $750 a night.

I don't want to get off topic (saw the mod's warning!) but if you are an MJ fan, OP, you should check out the suite he stayed in at the Atlantis in the Bahamas! It's called the bridge suite now, but at the time, it was called the Michael Jackson suite. It's $25,000 a night, connects the two towers of the Atlantis, and has 10 rooms and 12' ceilings. Also includes butler/cook services. We found this out when we took a tour of Atlantis when we did a Disney cruise.
