Sorry nmanzie, that's not true - as others have pointed out.
In Florida, "no weapons" signs do not carry the weight of law, but they are within their rights to ask you to leave.

For me, they don't even have to ask - I wouldn't be there in the first place.
I prefer to spend my money at 2A-friendly businesses.

Just today, I bought a new set of (4) tires for the Jeep.
I deliberately avoided buying Goodyear tires for exactly the reason set forth above: Goodyear doesn't allow legally-carried guns on any of their properties.
Fine - I don't allow Goodyear tires on my vehicles.
You just bummed me out, I put 4 Goodyear tires on one of my cars, BJ's had a great deal on them.

Thank you for the responses. I guess I won't be bringing my gun with me since they check.

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!
Now that we've got all that out of the way, welcome to FCC from Palm Beach County, Milkman! :wave

Since you've now made you first post to FCC and three more, all without an introduction, please take the time to post you're own Introduction to FCC so the members will get to know you. You can do that by going to the Introduce Yourself section of The Front Office and start your very own introduction thread. Then you'll find that lots of other FCC members will know to chime in to properly welcome you to the forum, and will be more responsive in answering questions!

In case you weren't aware, you can stay current on pertinent Florida Statutes regarding use of force and firearms law by going right to the source using these links for Chapter 776 - Justifiable Use of Force and Chapter 790 - Weapons and Firearms. I'd also like to suggest you obtain your own copy of FLORIDA FIREARMS Law, Use & Ownership by Jon Gutmacher!

Finally, I would like to recommend you consider joining Florida Carry and join the effort to protect the rights of Floridians to keep and bear arms!

Again, welcome to FCC! :grin

great thread for an experience i had at epcot 2 years ago...automotive instructors from all over florida meet at epcot annually with florida auto dealer association, ase and the department of education...general motors hosts us for the day in their employee center...we are not ticketed participants so we meet just outside the gates and are escorted in and out by guides...

i locked my edc in the car safe in the lot but simply forgot to remove my polymer iwb holster (comfortable is comfortable)...i walked to the security checkpoint and emptied my pockets, realizing at that point that a small rigging kniofe i carry everywhere was still in my pocket...i apologized for that and told them to keep it if it wasnt allowed ($5 marine store item)...they said it was ok and and i could keep it...when they wanded me they picked up the snaps on my iwb and asked what was on my boelt...i raised my jacket and cover shirt slowly while explaining there was an empty holster on my belt...they asked where the gun was and i told them locked safely far away...they let me pass...

i'm standing in my group with department of education representatives, ase president, fada and other instructors when i get a tap on the shoulder...i turn to see 2 security guards flanking me at about 10 feet and one speaking directly to me...he pulls me away from the others i am there with....he states they have heard i have a holster on my belt...i confirm that there is an empty piece of plastic attached to my belt...he tells me i cant have that in the park and asks if i can put it in my car...i tell him "no problem" and walk it back to the car...

i get back to my peers and everybody is wondering what the hell just took place...when i explain it to them and show them the knife i am allowed to carry they get a good laugh out of it...and now its one of the jokes when we do meet annually..

Wow, a piece of plastic that's not a weapon but is designed to hold one is not allowed in the park, but a rigging knife was fine? :doh Me thinks the Security Staff was misinformed. That's a really funny story, Bladenbullet! :rofl :doh

Security guards and others need to generate paperwork to show they are doing their job.
Walk by your nearest Federal building with a camera visible and see what happens.

I’m so glad they are keeping the patrons safe by removing an empty holster, But yet, allow a knife to be carried.

Just got passes there Monday. I always keep a razor blade between my phone and case and they caught that. Something I always got away with at Disney, when we had passes there a year ago. Universal is about as secure as an airport.

I want to say I read an article or a thread about a guy who got caught with a handgun trying to get in, or, that he brought it, asked about it, and all heck broke loose. Wished I remembered the details, but it did not sound like a good time. Be warned, be careful.

No sweat sir. As irony would have it, I am going there tomorrow with family. Want me to ask them for you? "Say, there mister security guard, HYPOTHETICALLY speaking, if someone were to smuggle a gun in here, what would be the best way to do it??"

:grin:grin:grin

Like I had mentioned earlier, honestly, I think you could smuggle a bag of dynamite or anything else in there if you really wanted. We used to bring the baby carriage and they never used to check it, we could have had anything in the bottom of it. Bag checks are not as thorough as they should be, they open it up and fumble around a bit but its very lax. I don't know why during bag check they don't look, then give it back to you and make you walk it through the sensors as well to be safer.

Florida Man Arrested for Bringing Concealed Firearm to Magic Kingdom

May 14, 2019

A Florida man was arrested last week when Disney security at Magic Kingdom found a concealed gun in the man’s backpack. The man claims he forgot the weapon was in his bag and that the incident was “an honest mistake.” No one was injured. . . .

Bruce is not licensed to carry a concealed gun.

Hey there, as a follow up. Universal has their parks on lockdown. When we entered, they have you pass through a metal detector and you put anything else you have in a box and through a metal detector just like at the airport. So, it will be extremely difficult to try and get something metal inside.

They have an area where you v
Can securely store your weapon / CCW. My wife and I do it every time we go, which is at least 2x/month.
Security in the parks is very good, in the garage it sucks and that’s where you definitely want your ccw.

Tell a security guard you need to check a weapon. They take you to,the room with the mirrored glass, and explain the process.

I'm disabled and have to ride a mobility scooter. I had a pass last year. I don't care if I ever see any of the Disney parks again. Anyway, I forgot on my last trip to see Star Wars that I had a Rajah 2 in my back pocket. They checked my backpack but not me. So I got in with a 6 inch folder on me concealed. I have a FL CWP, l remembered to leave my gun and a couple of other weapons in my truck but forgot about the knife. All of those parks are miserable places to be anyway.
