Yesterday we reported that there was a female guest who tried to bring a gun into Animal Kingdom, and it appears that the initial information that went out was incorrect.

We now hear from the Orlando Sentinel that it was instead a male guest who tried to bring the gun into Epcot, not Animal Kingdom. Apparently the story got misconstrued by Cast Members as the gossip started to make its way around after the event.

61 year old Michael Langston of Abita Springs, La. faces a charge of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit, according to his arrest report. He was booked into the Orange County Jail Monday afternoon. Apparently he had the Smith and Wesson Bodyguard .380 Automatic under his jacket, and security noticed and brought him to the metal detectors, where he was then forced to disclose he had the gun on his person. Sheriffs claim the man was not planning on disclosing he had the weapon on him until he realized he was about to get caught, and he was planning on bringing the loaded firearm into the park.

Guns are strictly prohibited on Disney property, even for those with lawful concealed-carry permits.

One thought on “Update: Gun incident from Walt Disney World

  1. Wow, talk about the “telephone game” gone to the extreme! How does a man with a firearm under his jacket going through the metal detectors get misreported as a woman with one in her backpack found by a bag checker?
