    Disneyland Security Question (Might be inappropriate for some!)

    This will be an awkward first post, but I'm want to make sure the parks are safe. A few weeks ago while waiting for Autotopia a man was "in his pants" doing his thing in line. (Please figure this one out) He was staring at some young girls in front of him (like 7-8 years old). We pointed this out to the cast member who got security there in around 5-10 minutes, who began to question him (while he continued his behavior in front of the security guard).

    First off with a 6 and 8 year old this completely ruined our Disney experience. Watching a pedophile in line isn't exactly "magical" and "Dreams come trueish". My question is what would Disney security do to a threat like this? I want people like him banned from our park, and I came here to find out if this would be the case? The kids still won't forget about him and we want to be sure we will be safe at Disneyland. While we're at it, has anyone else expierienced anything like this? Thank you!

    Darkbeer has more specific information on this, but now might be a good time to remind everyone that there are several half-way house/apartments for pedaphiles not too far from Disneyland so....even though you are on Disney property doesn't necessarily mean your kids are safe.

    If someone knows how to access that site, I think we were shocked a couple years ago to find that there are SEVERAL pedophiles that are within walking distance of the DLR.

    I think I just threw up! This is SO disgusting! I hope that man was banned for life! I can't imagine anyone doing that at Disneyland.

    You did the right thing by informing a cm.

    "I want people like him banned from our park"
    How would you suggest they ban him? Forcibly tattoo his forehead "Disneyland admittance forbidden"? I'm sure security took whatever legal measures they could, but there's nothing keeping him from returning.

    "we want to be sure we will be safe at Disneyland"
    While I understand this was a disgusting experience, suggesting that it makes you less 'safe' is naive. Don't you suppose at any one time there may be at least one, perhaps dozens, of people who go to the park for unsavory reasons? You make sure you are 'safe' by being responsible parents, the same as you would anywhere else.

    I'm not trying to be harsh, and I know this sort of thing should never happen anywhere, but we need to be realistic, too.

    I'm pretty sure that the guy got ejected from the park as a minimum consequence for his actions. If the guy was still going at it talking to the security guard that should give the security guard the justification to take him backstage and call the Anaheim PD because now you have a security guard that can provide witness to the lewd and lascivious activity. Best-case scenario would be that he took a trip up Harbor Blvd in a patrol car, got processed and cited, and when he goes to court the judge will give him a county shrink and a restraining order that keeps him miles away from the Disney property at all times.

    The problem with the halfway homes is that the state considers these people to be "rehabilitated" and thus they are considered innocent until they screw up again.

    Even so, why oh why would they put them next to Disneyland of all places - a place where there's always a lot of children? Aren't there hotels in Southern California that are not next to a destination that draws families with children from all over the world?

    (I'm reacting to the state's decision to house them there, not the person who posted. I had heard about this before.)

    Angry Re: Disneyland Security Question (Might be inappropriate for some!)

    AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!! Being the father of a nine-year-old girl (and, actually regardless of that), it's people like that, that make me sometimes hate the unwillingness of our society to take the necessary steps to remove problems like that pervert. Sorry if anybody thinks it's cruel, but by 'necessary steps', I mean to remove the 'problem' from the pedophile, either chemically or (better yet) surgically.

    As for seeing somebody doing something like that in the park, I'm just pig-headed stupid enough that I'd less than calmly walk over to the freak and start screaming at him about being a pervert and about nobody wanting things like him in Disneyland. I'd make it abundantly clear that he needed to make a bee-line for the exit, that I'd be following him the whole way, and that what would happen if he stopped would be much more nightmarish than what he could do to a child. I know I'd probably get myself kicked out and banned from the park for it, but that's how strongly I feel about it!

    *Deep breaths* 1... 2... 3... 4... 5... 6... 7... 8... 9... 10. Nope, still fuming!

    Sorry for the mega-rant. It's just a very big hot-button issue for me.

    D: eaugh! So sorry you and your family had to witness that! I hope they called the police on that guy, because that is just NOT acceptable and I think illegal. I feel really bad for the young girls he was looking at, as well as their family. I don't have kids, but if I saw some guy looking at my kids doing that, I'd be well beyond pissed.

    Thank you for being that passionate about what's right! And like everyone else on here has said, sorry you had to see that. I would have been mortified.

    Are you serious? Which hotels? I think we'd all like to avoid them.

    As for that guy, security should take him out back and give him the "bizness." That kind of extreme anti-social behavior should get one locked up forever.

    Yes, and at tax payers expense!

    Your tax dollars at work!



    If I would have witnessed the actions of this disgusting individual, DL security would have been called, but only after I had my way with him...


    And yes, folks shouldn't be so naive to think that this type of activity (and more) does not happen at the Park. It most certainly does.

    Parents need to practice their due diligence 24/7 when it comes to the safety of their kids. Yes, it is the parents personal responsibility to care for their own children. Even at Disneyland...

    You have to be on your toes, even at the "Happiest Place on Earth".
    There's no moral zapper that transforms ppl into the best citizens on Earth once you walk thorough those Disney gates (one would wish, but just isn't the case).
    I'm not sticking up for this guy
    but are you sure he didn't have a physical or mental disability? Sometimes what you think someone is doing, there MAY be physical (or mental) handicap and there motions/gestures/verbal maybe misinterpreted. I only bring this up b/c it seems odd that the person would continue even with security there.

    If this person really was being lewd, sorry your children had to see this. It's a shame that ppl can ruin an wonderful experience at a place like Disneyland. Some ppl just don't realize how their action affect others.
