    Disneyland bans pictures in its parking lots

    Posted by Cory Doctorow, April 22, 2008 6:07 AM

    No taking photos in the s33kr1t Disneyland parking lots! I mean, sure, they're full of CCTVs taking pictures of you, but just because you're paying $80 for the day, plus $10 to park, why should you feel free to steal the Mouse's precious, precious parking-lot photons? After all, those photos could be used by Al Quaeda to coordinate a strike on the Mouse House!

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    That's just a little crazy.
    For certain you must be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was.

    Of course if one actually reads the entire 'blog' entry, we find this is merely an incident of an un-/ill-informed security CM:
    At the time I marveled that these were now ten years old--and I remember parking in the lot when it was brand new. Just as I took this photo, however, a Security Cast Member in a patrol unit approached me (well, he stopped a ways away and shouted through a rolled-down window) and told me photography was not permitted there. Since that statement didn't make any sense, my first reaction was to question why that was. As I evaluated the possible responses, I thought "security" or "because I said so" would be what I'd get, so I complied and continued walking. I brought this up to appropriate people, who agreed there is no blanket prohibition of photography there. I wonder what secrets are hidden in this Pinocchio sign that are waiting to be discovered?

    My guess is that security guard just wanted to "patrol" someone.

    Another example of security being really bored.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    I'd screw with people. I know that I shouldn't do it, but I would have to. I'm weak.

    Re: Big Brother is watching/No pictures, please

    Every time I take some pictures at the BART station (like a subway in the bay area) security ALWAYS says "Well, I can't tell you NOT to take photos, but just so you know, some one may call me on this because of 9/11". WHAT?!

    So odd.

    "That will be ten dollars please, Thank You." Car enters gate. Car pulls up to Gate.

    Some of those security guys have a wee bit too much time on their hands.
