    I work in Law Enforcement and did Security for quite a few years (not WDW) and this is pretty much how it works. If someone is really bad, they might post their pictures for employees to see, etc. That would be for fraud related issues, but your normal people banned are given trespass warnings and than if they are every caught and their names checked in the WDW database of banned persons, they can charge them, even if they didn't steal something or whatever.

    Employee recognition is big too, many employees will remember people they encounter that were stealing, etc and call security when the person comes back. This is especially true for locals that might frequent WDW.

    As far as the face scanning, yes they are out there, but they are very costly and it isn't worth the expense to run those systems for minor issues. Some of the best Casinos use them to help prevent losses from cheaters, but most casinos will not use them because they are so expensive and just really aren't the most effective use of resources (each face of every patron being run, etc). You have to be careful what is on tv, most show exaggerate the truth of how technology is being used. CSI is the best example, prosecutors are having serious problems with juries that expect all the evidence to be done like it is in CSI, which just doesn't happen.

    Yup, it's a little obvious, but it's bad for you if cast members find you.

    The way it works in our state is if you 1. post a no trespassing sign 2. verbal inform them not to trespass 3. give them written notice not to tresspass you have been duly warned and are subject to arrest.

    If this is the case in Florida the letter given them gives them the right to have them arrested. The restraining order would not be necessary.

    I don't think there is any practical way to stop them at the gates - I seriously doubt that a photo circulated among CMs would do any good for spotting someone out of thousands a day, possibly not even around the same time.

    What I think would really happen is that a person with the no-trespass order takes their chances on going on property. If they end up involved in ANYTHING that results in them having to give their name and its checked, they face instant arrest, on top of whatever other charges might be levied for the new incident. Court assigned penalties would likely be stiffer.

    That is one expensive day care center! :)
    How young were the children? You could possibly get by with a 14 yr old, maybe, but younger I'm not so sure. I'm sure that child endangerment holds a much greater punishment than not being permitted in the parks. That would be like a get out of jail free card!

    This happened a while ago. A cast member was caught shop lifting. He lost his job at our store and was told he would never be admitted to WDW again.

    Here is the catch. He owns a large share of DVC. What happens here????

    Not to say that stealing isn't wrong, but if your friend was banned indefinitely from WDW for shop lifting that seems quite harsh. What on earth could have been stolen to cause such a punishment?

    As for his owning DVC, I have no idea. I suppose that if the circumstances were great enough to warrant expulsion from WDW then maybe they would be forced to sell or rent the points. :confused3

    Are they banned from ALL of the world or just the parks?

    My mom was an ASM for TDS years ago. They discovered another ASM and a lead stealing Disney dollars, tickets, and other items. I don't know the complete details but the courts ordered both of them to pay restitution, they are not allowed w/in a certain distance of any Disney Store and are banned from any Disney park. I imagine that photos of them were distributed but I'm not certain. My mom worked w/ both of them (she was in a different store when it occurred) and was friends w/ one of them so it was a very difficult time when my mom learned of what her friend had done so I have never asked how they enforce it.

    The fellow I worked with that had the DVC Shares, it was really stupid. It was when the pin trading at Disney was at its height.

    From what I understand he stole some pins at the World of Disney store.:headache: :headache:

    I do know that Disney has a list of people who are not allowed to purchase season passes.

    I don't know why anyone would do anything against Disney policy or rules. This is a place to enjoy with your family and somewhat escape the realities of the real life. If someone is banned from Disneyland then they should be, because their actions must have been such that might, could or did disrupt someones elses good time. This, I feel, is something that absolutely can not be tolerated..Just my opinion:) ... Michelle

    Why? They are only allowed to purchase dailies? Does that have something to do with being caught letting other people use your passes?

    Perhaps or some other disorderly behavior. May even be part of a settlement agreement from suing Disney. Slip and fall claims are probably settled this way. Something like, "Here's your check Mr. Smith and by accepting and signing this agreement you are banned from all Disney properties forever and ever and ever. "

    Such settlements are actually not that unusual. I know someone who suffered fractured vertebrae somehow from an old wooden out-and-back roller coaster. As part of the settlement, she agreed to be "banned" from the park. Of course, the company she worked for had their summer outing at the park a few years later...

    I don't believe the ban comes with any sort of enforcement - however liability is for the post part removed if the "banned" person chooses to violate the the ban and the conditions of the settlement.

    At least I believe - that's how it was explained to me. IANAL nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn last night. :)

    I know of a guy getting banned for continuiously standing up on Slash Mountain. The first 2 times they made an announcement for him to stand down and the 3rd time was right before the big drop. They stopped the ride escorted him off and he was eventually turned over to Orange County Police Department.

    Safety is a big reason that someone can be banned from Disney. Our first duty is safety, so that's really key...

    People crossing in front of parades and things like that...if you cut in front of a float and force it to stop suddenly - you could be banned....it jeopardizes the safety of guests and cast members....

    I was banned from a theme park once. As a teen I and my wife (my fiance at the time) stole some markers to write on the walls at Carrowinds. (Now Paramounts). We were removed from the park, and told to never return. They told us they would know us if we ever tried to return and press charges. 2 years later we bought annual passes.:rotfl2: :rotfl2:
    But SERIOUSLY. We were just stupid teenagers. I stole a $1.44 pack of magic markers. HONESTLY. Never return over $1.44??? Thats absurd.
    The same applies true to WDW. When I read the title of this thread I envisioned a sex offender molesting children in one of the attractions, or someone waving around a handgun or something like that. Not 2 girls smoking a joint or someone stealing pins. Please understand; I've never EVER did drugs, and I don't condone it, but that seems a bit harsh to me too. I certainly don't steal now either, (unless you count the misc packets at the fixins bars!!!:rotfl2: ) but that seems harsh as well.
    I can understand losing your rights to the park for that day but permanent expulsion???

    So, What else can get you banned for?

    Hey! That beats a day of crawling under houses fixing leaks ANY day!!! All I would need is a cushion for my butt and a supply of coffee:bitelip: to keep me from falling on the other riders when i doze off.:cool1: :happytv:

    Ban a child molester?? No, a child molester or someone waving a gun should be in jail.
    Someone smoking drugs at WDW should be banned.
