    Carrying in Universal Studios

    Hi all,

    I have a resident CCW here in FL. I was wondering if I can carry in Universal. I know they have signs that say no, but I was wondering if they do checks or have metal detectors. All of the information I found online is rather dated, so I am looking for someone with first hand knowledge please.

    Thanks in advance!

    Last time I went, which granted was a few years ago, they had metal detectors.

    Even if they didn't have metal detectors, you are still not allowed to carry in a business that has posted no firearms.

    Here is a good article from Concealed Carry Magazine put out by the USCCA.

    The above is incorrect in the state of Florida and the OP should ignore it.

    What about taking a day off from packing heat? I don't feel the need to carry at Disney, Universal, and other select places.

    We'll have a meeting with the criminals, and see what they say.

    I was there last Christmas. They have metal detectors, and they were doing cursory checks of bags. So, no, you cannot carry there.

    One can legally carry there and gain entry with their firearm if thoughtfully planned out beforehand.

    I simply bring my NAA Mini.

    From the very link that you posted:

    ‘No Guns Allowed’ – What Should You Do?


    The most important thing is that you know what the laws in your specific state are when it comes to businesses with these signs.
    There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes; it's how we arrange them that is important.

    Yeah I think most of us know that the sign thing isn't valid in Florida. The absolute worse thing that can happen to you if you carry legally in a place with a sign is you can get trespassed.

    To the person/people that said take a break from carrying, if I did that, why carry at all? Maybe I should take a day off every day. I carry for personal protection, and in this case I would be carrying for the protection of not only myself, but the group I am with. I am surprised to hear someone say that in this forum.

    Lastly to those that said there are metal detectors, is that for the park or City Walk, or is there a difference any more? I can see where there was a post online that there are metal detectors for City Walk, but since I am going to the park I am not sure if that applies.

    Thanks!
