Once home mall security pretend play turned into Disney security. He spent hours on his iTouch googling it and we learned that once the undercover Disney security officers were called foxes. He wears summer clothes, carries a bag with a toy walkie talkie in it and becomes a "fox"...

Not too long ago he asked me at bedtime..." who makes more money...a Disney security officer or you, mom?". Proceeded by " what college do I need to go to to become a Disney security officer?".

The pictures of the security officer and his dog on this thread will make his day today when I show him!!!

That is the cutest thing ever!!!

The only time I ever noticed security was when they followed me around in a store. I suppose I could have looked like a criminal. I was alone, browsing, had a big tote bag with me that had pretty much nothing in it.

Still and all, I'm one of those people who doesn't like being watched (even though I'm not going to steal), so I left.

(A few weeks ago a 9 year old boy had a chunk of his cheek bit off by a dog who was being walked by a 12 year old girl he knew. How horrible is that?!)
Yes! We have a 14 yr old Shih-tzu/Pekinese mix and a 6 yr old Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix. Sometimes when we take them to the park there are kids that want to pet them. I don't trust the kids to pet them because I'm always nervous that one of the dogs is going to bite and it would be my fault! So I always so "no, it's not a good idea to pet them because they may bite", I was feel bad saying no but better safe than sorry!

We all keep walking and we are pretty far away and we hear yelling again and her a bang the kid dropped his water bottle again and she threw him up against the bench AGAIN. It was so unbelievable anyone could do this to their child! I wish I had done something but didn't know what to do.

The 3rd incident is by far the worst and went on for awhile this was August 2009 and this all happened without any security or CM's stopping it. It seems hard to believe but it is 100% true.

As we where exciting Buzz in tomorrow land and headed to the front gate for a dinner at Narcoosseeswhen we hear a woman yelling at her daughter who was probably 12. The girl wanted to go on the buzz ride which had obviously upset the mother for some reason. She started to yell at her for wanting to go on the ride she pushes her daughter on the ground grabs her by the hair and bangs her face into the pavement. The girl is crying and trying to get up and the mom pushes her down again and tells her to stop crying when she gets up the mom drags her by the ear while yelling at her in Spanish i think? to the rest of their family probably about 10 others on the way the mom pushes her down again no one in her family helps her they just keep walking acting as if everything is normal. The mom keeps yelling at her hitting her as they exit tomorrow land. Some onlookers look like they are about to intervene when the mom eventually stops after what seemed like ages. If this mother does this to her child in front of everyone in tomorrow land I can not imagine what goes on at home. Myself and Disney dad witnessed the whole thing while the rest of our party was completely oblivious and kept walking toward mainstreet. My Dis dad was about to help the little girl but the mom finally stopped. It shook us up for awhile.
See, I would probably get in trouble trying to break it up and ending up overly emotional.

It brought tears to my eyes and my DD(3) asked why the boy was crying. What do you say to that.
What a bully.

I'd have hated for my daughter to get a record at so early and age.
This probably happens extremely often. When my daughter wandered out with something in her stroller at age 2, we went back in and put it back...but we were pretty far away from the shop at that point and no one came and got us.

I dont feel that is oversteping their boundries at all. I am in law enforcement and if they thought he was carrying a firearm, they certainly need to check. And the "rudness" was more than likely a bit of nervousness depending on the security guard. You have to remember they are unarmed (though i am convinced there are some that are, regardless of what Disney says, seeing as how they could respond to a major incident faster than the deputies at the park entrance, and being a major terrorist target) and unless you have approached and confronted someone beleived to be armed, it's easy to be of the opinion that it is rude, or overstepping. Of course, an appology is warranted along with an explaination, and i'm sure they provided one knowing Disney. I would have absolutely no problem being asked to lift my shirt or whatever if they felt the need to check. I would hope they would do this without hesitation whenever they felt the need seeing as how i want my family to be safe at their property.

So much for Disney security being everywhere: http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...of-disney-ride

That went on way longer than it should have.

I think security may have been a bit slow in response on that incident.

Yeah, not good. Luckily for the guard, people jumped in and helped him out. Theres always a nut trying to reason with the guy too in most of these situations. "There are children here". Really? like that stopped him up until this point?

It's interesting to see how long this incident went on given the fact that this guy was obviously impaired and was getting into a physical fight with the "security" (more like a rent-a-cop than real security from the looks of him) guy. With all the stories on here of the now-you-see-them now-you-don't incidents of security coming out of nowhere and escorting the offenders away for things that are not as bad as this in terms of physicality (like the whackado with the foil hat), you would think that guys with the earpieces would have been coming out of the woodwork for this guy. I wonder why that didn't happen?

Now I'm going to have to be on the lookout for any Disney security on our next trip. I never noticed them before, but I admit that I was not looking.

I've been subscribed to this thread for a long time. I am wondering if the difference with the HM security video is that a lot of the posts here about WDW and that was at DL? Just my thought...

I was reading a bit about this incident in the DL forum, and someone mentioned that this occurred on an extremely busy day, which might account for the slow response time. Others speculated that the bystanders that jumped in may have been undercover security, but I'm not sure I buy that.

Al Lutz talks about this incident . He mentions that security was also tied up in other parts of the park with two paramedic runs. Sounds like it was a busy day and they were just stretched too thin at that moment.
