No one will change anyone's opinion here.

I do think we can all agree that having the gun was within the person's legal right. No need to beat a dead horse about conflicting opinions. It was done. It was legal. Nothing stolen.

I agree with 2 things you said no one will change anyone elses opinion and nothing was stolen Thank God Now for the record I am not anti-gun ownership

However this is not my opinion this is fact Disney is private property parks, resorts, DCL as such they make the rules The only time a gun is allowed in any aforementioned property is Secret Service protecting dignitaries OR on duty LEOs working for Disney

Private property owner rights supercede gun owners rights even if concealed weapon permitDisney Co knows LEOs vacation and have set rules gun must be declared and locked in safe front desk resort or if in park in Security office

I do not want you to believe me I hope you will call Disney & ask to speak to a Security Manager

We haven't had anything stolen from our resort room at Disney World or any of the offsite places we've stayed although we had a couple of bad incidents people should be aware of.

We stayed at an unnamed hotel in Kissimmee and halfway home my husband asked me if I had picked up his cell phone from the bed before we left. I had no idea he left it behind. It was in a blue case and the bedspread was blue (and quite frankly, it was his phone, not mine). Anyway, I immediately got on my cell phone and called the hotel and was promised it would be shipped back. I offered a credit card number for shipping but was told I would be called back for that information. Two weeks later, no cell phone. After calling about five different times, I finally did a screaming thing and demanded to be put directly to the manager and I didn't want to hear any excuses. The guy said they had sent it. A week later, no phone. I called back and did the screaming thing again. The manager said "oh, it's here on my desk". Out and out lied. I had him ship it FedEx for free and I got it the next day.

The second one was years ago in Lincoln, NE. My son and I had gone down to the pool for a few hours, came back to our room and relaxed and then ordered a pizza delivered. Once that arrived, I found my cash gone. OK - someone had sticky fingers so I paid by credit card. A month later, my husband was reconciling the bank account and asked where two checks were. Someone had taken two non consecutive checks out of the check book. We would have noticed two consecutive checks gone but not two random ones. Needless to say, we have never taken a checkbook on a trip again.

Never anything from the room.

Once, I was accused of stealing someone else's shirt from the main pool at SSR. A rather large man was pointing at me and yelling "Him, he's the one I saw take it" with a cast member trailing behind him. The crazy dude told the case member that I had just taken it and that he demanded I be arrested!

I asked the cast member to tell me exactly what the guy was accusing me of. The CM told him that the other guest had just watched me take his T-shirt off of the chairs his family had placed their items on. I told the other guest he was crazy and asked him what the shirt looked like. He pointed at MY shirt that I was carrying and using some words that would be censored here told me that MY shirt was his.

I opened the shirt, handed it to the CM and asked him to hold it for a second. He agreed. I opened facebook on my phone and brought up my softball team's page that had a team photo of us wearing these shirts. I showed that picture to the CM and asked him what name was on the back of the shirt. The CM read the name and I showed him my driver's license that matched. I then turned to the other guest and told him to go do something that's not physically possible before grabbing my shirt and walking away.

I admit the last part wasn't very responsible of me, but after being accused of stealing my own shirt, I wasn't in a very family mode...

If you were at SSR main pool on 07/03/09 and heard what I said, I apologize. Unless it was you that accused me.... ;-)

Nothing stolen at any hotels..but...

Dh and I were on our honeymoon in Reno, at the now defunct Rainbow Casino and Resort. During the housekeeping strike.





Anyways, the first night, about 2am, someone comes in the door! We had the security chain on, but that person came in so hard and fast, it snapped off! Woke us both up out of a dead sleep, and I screamed. Called down, they claimed they "accidentally" gave that guy our room. With all the other issues that happened, I believe it!

(Off note--we didn't get to check in until almost 7pm because our room wasn't ready and didn't get a change of sheets or a cleaning for the 4 days we were there---though I did manage to grab some clean towels off the carts--because they would always show up in the late afternoons, when we were...well, honeymooning ....)

Wait--I was wrong! We were at the pool at a hotel (I want to say ASMo, but I dont' remember for sure--it could have been in AZ or CA also). DH had his watch ($50, at least 10 years old) under his towel, with his room key and glasses. Went back, the room key and glasses were there, the watch was gone. It was so beat up---he wanted to replace it anyways, but it wasn't like it was a Rolex...heck, it wasn't even a Timex!

For anyone who does have valuable items by the pool (I know I wouldn't want my raybans stolen!) You might want to check out this.

No. I have never had anything stolen from any hotel room and I don't try to hide my laptops.

I have been reading hotel reviews for different hotels in Las Vegas though and it seems to be a very big problem in Vegas. Review after review after review where ppl say they had valuables stolen from the room. SO I probably won't be taking a computer when I go to Vegas next year.

The only thing I have ever had happen is the housekeeper dropped and broke a bottle of my perfume, but she told the hotel manager about it and they sent someone to the mall and bought me a brand new bottle of it.

We have been lucky I guess.

Now if you were asking have you ever forgotten or left something behind in a hotel room then that would be a big fat yes. ANd I have never had my stuff turned in to lost and found by the housekeepers. They have always kept my stuff.

Happy to say that we never have. We've been to WDW... ummm... I think 9-ish times for 10 days each (lucky us!!), and never had an issue. We leave out laptops and other electronics. The few times I brought decent jewelry (not a jewelry person!), I did put that in the safe.

Ha, good for you. I love when things work out like that and you can prove accusers wrong.

Never. Amazingly not at the pool, or any of the theme parks in all the years we've been going. We do use the safe in the room.

That's really cool. They could have just given you the price of it, but for then to actually go and replace it was really nice.
