Florida Man Tries to Bring a Gun to Disney Springs
If you have visited any Disney Parks location, you know security can be pretty tight. Although security might aggravate us from time to time, they definitely did their job as a Florida man tries to bring a gun to Disney Springs.
The Incident at Disney Springs
Of course, Disney Springs is Walt Disney World Resort’s world-class shopping and dining location in Orlando, Florida. Turns out, security kept everyone very safe on May 27, 2022.
Deputies arrested a man after he tried to bring a gun and extra magazines into Disney Springs. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a man carrying a gun.
Deputies took a black and bronze 9-millimeter Glock 19 and two magazines loaded with 17 rounds of ammunition each. In addition, they retrieved a small box with 14 more rounds, a waistband holster, and the gun had no serial number.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrested Aaron Josue Lopez, who is 35 years old. Thankfully, Disney’s security team alerted staff when Lopez just walked right passed them.
Security asked Lopez to take his bag to the checkpoint, and he informed them he had a folding knife inside his bag. Security informed him they must search his bag, then Lopez said, “Oh, there’s something else in here besides a knife that I want to put back in my car.”
Lopez tried to walk away at that point, but a Disney Cast Member stopped him. The Cast Member escorted him to an Orange County deputy and that is when the deputy found the gun and ammunition in Lopez’s backpack.
According to Lopez, the gun did not have a serial number because paperwork to obtain one had not been submitted yet. In addition, the man did not have a valid concealed firearm license in any databases, even though Lopez said he had one.
Deputies charged Aaron Josue Lopez with carrying a concealed firearm without a license. In addition, he is banned from all Disney properties.
Thank You, Disney Security!
So, if you happen to visit a Disney Parks location today, be sure to take a little extra time to thank Disney security. After all, they protect you from people like this Florida man.
