    Possible trouble after Trayvon trial???

    Greetings everyone - we are about to make our 14th trip to Disney World, end of July / beginning of Aug...that Zimmerman/Trayvon trial thing could be ending (in the Orlando area) right at this time. Has anyone discussed or considered the safety factors of being in this area after the verdict is read, regardless of the outcome??? We also have family driving and meeting us at the resort this year...it's too late to change hotel and dining resos but, just curious what others think...

    Thanks

    Just by being aware of it and being prepared should make you safer. Don't want to start a political debate, but I am happy my conceal carry is recognized in Florida and firearms could be checked in and out at the security office at the front gates. Not everyone's cup of tea, but if I was walking back late at night with my family I would not want to be without protection trial or no trial.
    If you are not comfortable with that, just making sure all procautions are taken with watching the news at the time and making sure you are safe in the park or hotel and not on the streets during possible reading of the verdict, just in case, not saying anything will, but nobody really predicted Rodney King violence.
    Stay safe!

    A) Like Eric said, this isn't LA.

    B) Sanford is at least an hour drive north of Walt Disney World.
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.
