    Anyone ever get robbed at Disneyland?

    Just wondering what the crime rate is at Disneyland. I'm sure there is small theft from the stores but has anyone been pick pocketed or robbed in any other form?
    (Other than the price for admission to DCA which is a robbery in itself)

    Just at Knotts, stupid train robbers.

    Can't wait for your follow-up: did you ever get food poisoning thread.

    Re: Anyone ever get robbed at Disneyland?

    It's a valid question.

    I haven't heard of any big robberies or crime, but I'm sure pick pocketing has happened.

    As for food poisoning, I never have but I know others who have gotten it from DL's food.

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I get robbed every time I buy food at Disneyland

    Portions seem to get smaller, and the price goes up.....

    Nothing at DL but last time I was a Knotts a riot broke out and I was afraid of getting shot.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    Re: Anyone ever get robbed at Disneyland?

    Yes, robberies have occurred at the Resort.

    And BTW, someone swiping a stroller is not robbing it. They have stolen it (petty theft, in most cases). You can only rob another person, not an item.


    In addition to that:

    Hotel rooms get burglarized.

    Luggage gets stolen from the Bell Hops.

    Vehicles get broken into. They have hit and runs occur to them and have their Disney antenna balls stolen from. Some have even been keyed.

    Folks have been arrested for shoplifting at the Resort.

    Folks have been arrested for being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs at the Resort.

    Folks that are seen driving in rental cars get car-jacked and are sometimes robbed at red lights more often than locals ("tourists" are seen as easier targets by crooks). Rental cars get broken into quite often due to the possibility of luggage and other valuable items being kept in them.

    And the list goes on and on...


    Sorry to say, but this isn't Mayberry . Act accordingly.



    Oh yeah, one other thing. In my opinion, anyone that uses the ART system is getting ripped off too!

    Have a nice trip!

    Well, a while ago, my brother's wallet was stolen at DCA, but nothing else has really happened to us.

    I guess so huh? Man I thought you'd gone on your trip already. I'm interested to see the turn your questions will take after your visit.

    Never been robbed. Never had anything stolen from my room or car.

    Disney keeps things like this really quiet. They don't want ppl to think the park isn't safe. I hear the security team is amazing at getting to a problem and taking it out of the general public's view.
    I've heard of ppl taking things out of strollers (happened to a friend...they were shocked that Disneyland was immune from societies ills).
    Ppl also don't think about keeping an eye on their children. There a many sick ppl out there in the world.

    Yackerz, I'd be more concerned about Hollywood Blvd. and some of the other places you're visiting.

    If I were you, I'd also take either another credit card or an ATM card just in case your primary card gets stolen.

    Re: Anyone ever get robbed at Disneyland?

    osm, my family has NEVER to this date had anything stolen from them at the hotels or the parking lots...

    however, I have had something stolen from me. I was waiting in line for the haunted mansion, and.... a preteen about 10-11 was standing behind me(did not speak a word of english, and spoke only spanish) the child kept inching her way forward to cut in line....or so I thought......well, she got a little too close to me and I fealt her hand brush my leg near my front left pocket where I had my wallet, ap, hotel keycard(this was back in 2007 during our family vacation--we stayed at the grand californian) and money. well, when I got back to the hotel I was cleaning out my pockets to take a shower(it was during the summer) when I noticed that I had considerably less money than when we checked in to the hotel earlier in the day mind you . I knew this because I had folded the money and weighed down my pocket so that the money could not fall out. THE LITTLE BRAT STOLE 500 DOLLARS OUT OF MY POCKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh and yes folks I beat you to it. I know how much I had earlier that day because before we left the house I counted my money and wrote the amount down on a piece of paper and put it in my wallet, which I also had with me. that day I only made one souvenir purchase {{{{{this negates the theory of those who think that we apers do not make purchases }}}}}, but I did buy a box of popcorn, a soda, and a dole whip(not in that order of course and not all at the same time anyway back to the story......
    I checked my purchase receipts, and subtracting the amount(s) of the purchases of that day (pre-disneyland resort arrival and post) and there was a 500 dollar discrepancy: hence the theft. I reported it to resort security and got my money back.
    (plus a litle extra---50 dollars. I figured that the little brat needed to be taught a lesson....dont take something thats not hers.)
