Sometimes lines just to get into Walt Disney World parks can be frustrating, but on Sunday morning we found out just how important it is to wait a few extra minutes to let park security do their jobs. Security definitely did their jobs very well when they caught a man who attempted to gain entry to the parks via the “no bag line” with a loaded gun in his backpack.

WKMG Orlando states the Orange County Sheriff’s Office reported that Nathan Polit, of Boynton Beach, was stopped outside Animal Kingdom at the security check point where he tried to make the excuse to officers that he “forgot” his loaded 9mm Smith and Wesson was in his backpack. He claimed the gun was previously stored in his car, but had moved it to his backpack Saturday night out of fear of his vehicle being broken into, then forgot to take it back out before trying to go through park security. His story didn’t add up and caused major concern for deputies due to the fact he had chosen to try to enter the parks with his gun in a backpack via the “no bag line.”

Polit was arrested on a charge of carrying a concealed firearm (a 3rd degree felony) AND has also been trespassed from all Walt Disney World properties. The affidavit noted Polit did not have a concealed carry permit.

A Disney spokesperson made it clear that Polit not only did not make it past the checkpoint, and that ALL weapons are prohibited from they properties.
