This past week I took the family on vacation to Disneyworld and by chance learned firsthand that Disney has a policy on carrying knives in their parks. The first day at the park I remembered to slip my Spyderco endura 4 into my pocket prior to the bag search. I did this as I've read previously that Disney is very staunch in their no concealed weapons and I was unaware of their knife policy at that time. After slipping my knife into my pocket and there being nothing in my bag noteworthy I moved through security in a breeze. The second day things were a bit hectic and I neglected to slip my knife into my pocket. The security guard cleared my bag and as I started to move forward he stopped me and inquired what was on the clip in my pocket. I produced the knife and he immediately advised my that it was not allowed in the park. I tried the standard "Were is that rule posted? Is it online or posted prior the park in view for the public?" My thought was this may get me out of any further harassment.....it didnt work. The guard squared up to me, glared at me, grabbed his radio and stated he was calling a supervisor. I thought "crap....my wife is going to kick my ass if I go to Disney jail" The supervisor arrived within seconds and asked me to step aside. He asked to see the knife and advised me that knives are allowed if the blade is under 3 inches. My knife was well over that but the gentleman continued to advised me that I could check my knife in a locked "mail-box". He walked me over to the lockboxes, similar to what you'd find at a pool. I dropped in fifty cents, secured my knife and he took down my address and name in the event I lost my key so they can mail it back. All said and done, I really should have slipped the knife into my pocket. Now they are not running people through metal detectors yet, but even during the ordeal the service was still fantastic.
