Disney World is a magical place filled with dreams, laughter, and unforgettable experiences. However, like any other amusement Park, there are rules and guidelines that Guests are expected to follow. One such rule pertains to the prohibition of certain items within the Park. While Disney World has implemented strict security measures to enforce these rules, some Guests always try to bend or break them.
Guests heading into any Disney Park will be forced to go through bag checks and metal detectors at Park entrances. This is to deter Guests from bringing prohibited items inside. However, some individuals resort to inventive methods to bypass these security measures. Walt Disney World Resort is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Park includes something for Guests of all ages to experience.
Attempting to sneak prohibited items into Disney World can have serious consequences. Disney’s security team is well-trained in identifying suspicious behavior and detecting prohibited items. If a Guest is caught with such items, they risk being denied entry, escorted off the property, or permanently banned from the Park.
In a viral TikTok, a Disney World Guest can be seen pouring their “sunscreen” into a drink at Disney World. These Guests removed the sunscreen from its container and added alcohol instead. Disney Guests trying to sneak prohibited items into the Parks should remember Dinsey has a list of items banned for the safety of Guests and Cast Members.
This isn’t the first time that a Disney World Guest has been caught trying to sneak items past Disney security. From children who are older than the free ticket age, to many other items, this has become much more than a rare occurrence. One TikTok was kicked out of Disney after copying some of these ideas while in the Disney Parks.
Other incidents that have resulted in trespasses from the theme park have been covered extensively, as well. A celebrity was banned from Disney Parks after taking a “selfie.” One Guest was kicked out for having what Cast Members thought was a selfie stick. A Disney Guest was arrested after guns were found inside a diaper bag. Several Guests have been banned for jumping off attractions. This list goes on and on, as Disney Park Guests find new ways to break the rules.
