Disney security at the Disneyland Resort entrance is crucial to ensuring the safety and well-being of all guests and staff within the park. The security measures are designed to create a secure environment where everyone can truly enjoy the park’s magic.

As you approach the entrance of Disneyland Park, you will notice the visible presence of security guards who are trained to maintain order and respond promptly to any situation that may arise. These security guards play a pivotal role in upholding the safety protocols set by the The Walt Disney Company, ensuring that guests can explore the park without any concerns.

Guests count on Disney resort security to maintain order at Downtown Disney, Disneyland Park, and Disney California Adventure Park. However, what happens when the Disneyland security guard is the one committing the crime? One guest believes they may have been a victim of a security guard’s clever scheme.

Guest Accuses Disney Security of Thievery

In essence, the security measures at the Disneyland Park entrance are a testament to Disney’s unwavering commitment to providing a safe and secure environment for all visitors. By blending physical security presence with advanced technologies and privacy protection protocols, Disney ensures that every guest can immerse themselves fully in the magic of Disneyland without any worries.

However, no matter how much they try, no theme park can fully evict all dangerous and criminal behavior. For one guest, they believe that their perpetrator was, in fact, hidden in plain sight as a Disney security officer.

This guest was going through security at Mickey and Friends parking when their phone/wallet was taken by a member of the security team. The guest explained that the security personnel was looking at the credit card in their wallet. Later on in the day, the guest received a fraud alert from their credit card company.

A Suspicious Interaction

While many guests might pass this off as just a thorough security personnel, this guest predicts that sinister behavior may be at hand. They explain their feelings on Reddit, saying:

Bad coincidence or something that needs to be reported?

Early this morning, I went through the security line at Mickey and Friends parking this morning. I didn’t have any bags, just my cell phone and my key fob, so I put them in the bowl as I stepped through the detector. After I went through the detector, I looked back and the security person was fiddling with my phone case. (I have a phone case that is also my wallet.) He was sliding my credit card back into the wallet portion of my cell phone case. It was really strange. Like, why is security even looking inside my cell phone case? Why would he even take my phone out of the bowl?
Toward the end of the day, I was getting fraud alerts from the credit card company. I ended up canceling that card and getting issued a new one.
I think that the security guard might have electronically pickpocketed me. Of course, it could be a really bad coincidence.

Anyone else have something weird like this happen to them? Should I call Disney security and let them know?”

While this situation may have been just a “bad coincidence,” as this guest said, it is possible that foul play was involved. It is never a bad idea to err on the side of caution and call a Disney guest services number to report the incident. It is always better to be safe than sorry!
