    I've been to DL hundreds of times. I do not give up my freedoms when I go to DL. I do not change the way I act when I go to DL. I've never been approached by a "wannabe cop" security guard at DL. So I'm unaware of these mysterious rules that you talk about.

    If you go through my posts you'll see this is the first thread that I've been serious in. I guess I'm just sad that everyone is okay with "Guilty untill proven Innocent." I'm done with this thread.....back to making jokes.

    Personal privacy? You must not live in the same USA that I live in. Not about to start a political discussion, but if you study any of the US's policies, personal privacy has always come second to national security, as it should.

    As for someone bringing up liberty...liberty is freedom FROM something, not freedom TO something. You are free from having your personal safety challenged by others, and Disneyland is helping to fulfill that liberty.

    Disneyland is a private property, and can therefore assert its own rules, something Jim Hill, for example, learned recently. If you don't like Disneyland's rules, then you can feel free to enjoy the metal detectors over at Six Flags. Hoping for total personal freedom is rather idealistic, though. I don't know of anywhere in the world where that is in existence. We can't even send out emails or check-out books from the library without the possibility of being monitored, and I don't see why Disneyland should be unable to maintain guest safety by whatever means they see fit. However, if you do feel like your "personal rights" are being violated, I'm sure you could make a fuss during bag check and security would be more than happy to escort you to your car. Quite the world we live in, and Disneyland is, unfortunately, only a virtual escape from it.

    I find it interesting that people complain about the bag checkers not doing anything, but then when they are held up for a few extra seconds, maybe a minute, they throw a fit about the delay.

    Secondly, everyone likes to launch off on Security....might want to take a look at the uniforms of those who are checking your bags....

    Lastly, Lightbeer, I am sure that all those Security Officers who take their jobs seriously and who are truly looking out for the safety and security of the guests and cast members around them truly appreciate being called "wannabe cops". Does it actually make you feel better about your own job to put them down for doing their job as best as they can?

    Well put. That's why we live in a democracy. The well being of the masses compared to individuals.

    You guys covered it.

    C'mon, Lightbeer, what era of personal freedom are you talking about?
    Disneyland is the least of your worries if you are concerned for your personal freedoms!
    Our law inforcement can now enter our homes and search without a warrant, and even if we are not home. they can just send us a notice in the mail. That is for Homeland Security. Lets get real here. We are a country at War. People hate us, and our way of life. You bet they better be checkin those bags at DL, what little that is is better than nothing. I just don't see where you are coming from. And believe me, I love freedom as much as any American.
