What Is Disney Jail?
- Patrick Hunter
Advice & Trivia Internet is generally awesome. You have access to an infinite amount of information AT ALL TIMES. However, this also implies that a great deal of nonsense circulates ALL THE TIME. Indeed, this holds true for Disneyland “facts” and advice.
The majority of park visitors recognize tall tales when they read them, but there is one that I occasionally encounter that I find particularly absurd. Let’s discuss the Disneyland jail. If you conduct a quick search on the Disneyland jail, you will find a variety of tales. People claim a literal jail cell is hidden on Main Street, which reminds me of this scene from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Source: OC Register There have been claims that there is a jail cell backstage, that Goofy wears a police uniform to watch the temporary prisoners, and that they require you to write a letter of apology to Mickey. So, what’s going on? What is the “Disney jail”? The jail at Disneyland is a security office.
- Depending on where you are in the parks, you will be transported to a different one, the largest of which is located behind Main Street.
- There are no bars or costumed individuals, only security personnel.
- You can be arrested for a variety of offenses, including shoplifting, excessive intoxication, and sneaking backstage, among others.
And your punishment will be proportional to your transgression. Minor offenses or lenient security personnel may result in a daylong ban from the parks. Your Magic Key may be revoked or you may receive a lifetime ban for more serious offenses. And if your actions constitute a crime of sufficient severity, your case may be transferred to the Anaheim Police Department.
What was the stolen property?
Theft of a family’s truck during a Disney vacation – A family on vacation at Disney discovered one morning that their truck had been taken. Orlando – What was supposed to be a fun family vacation to Disney turned into a nightmare when their truck was stolen from the hotel where they were staying.
“We decided to surprise them by taking them to Orlando for a few days,” said Ryan and Cassidy McClendon, whose surprise Disney trip for their children’s birthday turned into a nightmare when their vehicle was stolen from a hotel parking lot. Orlando Police are currently investigating. Cassidy said, “The next morning we awoke to go to Disney, but the truck was missing, so we were unable to travel.
A day spent in the hotel room. Kids were very upset.” Likewise, their father said, “I can read it on his face: “Where’s my truck?” Pale. I believed he was going to cry.” The couple reported that their white 2007 Ford F-250 pickup truck was stolen from the Comfort Suites parking lot on Major Boulevard.
Fewer mirrors means fewer instances of vandalism, such as scratches and defacement. And while it’s true that you won’t find mirrors above sinks in Disney bathrooms, mirrors are present — just not in the typical location above the sinks. Due to the tens of thousands of guests who utilize the park and its restrooms throughout the day, planners installed one or two large mirrors at the restroom’s exit to maintain the flow of traffic.
Why is Disney demolishing masonry?
Walt Disney World continues to prepare for its 50th Anniversary in 2021, and while we’ve already seen projects scheduled for the entrances to Epcot and Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Magic Kingdom is next on the list, with the removal of the personalized Walk Around the World bricks that currently greet guests at the entrance.
Photo courtesy of – bigfloridacountry.com The Walk Around the World bricks will be gradually removed from Disney’s Magic Kingdom and the Ticket and Transportation Center. The bricks are being removed because the entrance to the Magic Kingdom is being upgraded, and new security check-ins will occupy some of the space currently occupied by the bricks.
The contracts for the original bricks were set to expire in 2011, so we have already passed the deadline by eight years. You may be wondering at this point, “What will happen to MY Walk Around the World Brick and can I get it back?” The brief response is no.
- Unfortunately, the original installation does not permit guests to take their brick home with them.
- While it is unfortunate for guests who have purchased one of these bricks that they will be removed, there is a silver lining: Disney is offering replica bricks that you can purchase and keep forever.
- Guests have the option of picking up their brick at the Magic Kingdom, or ordering it online and having it shipped to them.

What three words may not be spoken by Disney employees? – “I don’t know” is the phrase that Disney employees are trained to avoid saying. An anonymous former Cast Member stated online, “If a guest asks you a question, you must always have an answer, without exception.” “If you don’t know something, find out instead of claiming ignorance.
What is prohibited within Disney parks?
At Disney World, skateboards and rollerblades are the only modes of transportation on wheels that do not contribute to the park experience. Guests requiring mobility aids and children in strollers are the only exceptions. Parks and resorts prohibit skateboards, scooters, in-line skates, and shoes with built-in wheels.
However, there are exceptions to this rule, as bicycles are permitted in certain Disney Resort areas (and can even be rented!). Bicycle Rentals at the Coronado Springs Resort at Disney Now, this may sound a little strange at first, but if you’ve ever been to Disney World on a busy day, you can probably guess why these are prohibited.
Wheeling around the parks could pose a significant safety risk to you and other guests.
