Banned From Disney?

There have been a few threads regarding people being banned from the parks and how that is the ultimate punishment for simply evil guests. I agree that no longer being allowed to visit WDW is a punishment that I would hate to receive, but I was wondering how Disney enforces the bannishment of guests who REALLY misbehave.

Does anyone here know how Disney enforces this type of punishment?

Does anyone have a possible solution or even an outright ridiculous one?

I know they take pictures and get a lot of identifying informaiton about the person. They will give them a letter, and make them sign for receipt fo the letter, warning them that if they are ever caught on Disney Property they will be turned over to the Sheriff's Office with a charge of Criminal Trespass.

Then of course there's the transmitter that Disney security people implant in their skulls.

So being banned is sort of something you could get around as long as you paid for everything in cash and kept on your best behavior. Unless the micro-chip idea is more fact than fiction. I imagine that keeping you photo on file is a good idea, but I wonder how well the records are kept and who actually does the identification of the suspects.

I don't remember having to use the finger print scanner to get into the parks this year. I am not sure if we did it last year either. Did they do away with that? That would be a pretty good tool to use to identify any banned people.

8 hours on small world. What is that, like 48 or so times around? I might yank out my hair after the 3rd. By the 5th I'd be out of the car playing in the African Safari. I wonder what the punishment for that would be?

When my kids misbehave at Hollywood Studios, I point over to the Tower of Terror and say that riding that might be their punishment. They HATE that ride. I'd definitely let 'em use their restraints though....definitely want to keep 'em around!

In the late 70s, when only MK was open, a friend and I were watching the electric parade when we smelled something, um, herbal in the air. About the same time that we realized it was coming from two young women near us in the crowd, a CM with a walkie-talkie gathered up all four of us and marched us into a building, down stairs into the utilidors, and into Disney Security, which was concrete blocks and plastic furniture. We had a scary moment when an employee asked the girls their ages and they said "14" (we were in our 30's!), and we realized things could go badly for us -- out-of-state men in the company of minors, etc. Fortunately, the girls were honest about not knowing us. We were released and, because the episode took several hours, we were given free passes to MK for the next day. The girls' parents, however, were phoned at the Contemporary and told that the family had to pack up and leave immediately. I have no idea how WDW planned to track this family in the future, but it was clear they were not welcome back.

If the banned people return to WDW, they probably would not be complete angels. Their criminal (say, something like shoplifting or pick-pocketing) or anti-social (say, for instance, yelling at or assaulting other guests) behavior would in all likelihood return. And, let's face it...if someone is stupid enough or nasty enough to be 'banned', they are probably already eligible for some Darwin or Stupid Criminal Awards.

Then when they are being processed by Security for their new crimes/behavior, their names/ID would come up in the computers and, in addition to everything else, they could then be charged with criminal trespassing (since on their last visit they signed that letter).

I suppose that if they attempted to buy tickets in their own names, that they could probably be denied entry.

Well I know for a fact that Camera could be set up at several locations ( Turnstyles and so forth) that could do face scans and compair quickly to a Database.

Watch the Show Vegas is has it on all the time and where the time line of how fast it takes is not acurit it's still very feasable.

I don't know if they use this but I know it's out there for use.

I think it's more of having them arrested for trespass as stated earlier as an easier corse of action.

14 and high seems like a ripe combination for doing stupid things. Honestly, I wonder what goes through someones head when they decide to smoke in public? Do they really think that no one else can smell it? It has a pretty distinctive aroma that most people can easily detect.
