Man banned from Disney World for life.

Trespassing is wrong, illegal, dangerous, and a liability to WDW. They were 100% in the right to do what they did.. but I admit, I love those back stage, closed attraction peeks at things.

Backstage looks like the receiving area of every mall everywhere: really nothing special. Just think of the hullabaloo if that yahoo was injured somehow while sneaking around? He is lucky Disney was so polite: try sneaking around inside any other business, and go to jail and get fined big bucks.

I have been following Adam the Woo for a long time now and I am not surprised this happened to him. As much as I love seeing backstage its one thing to go back there and then another to record it and put it on youtube. If you are doing something you know you should not be doing then why show the world you are doing it.

they also fire employees that steal...
but only sometimes with managers...if it doesn't cause a stir or hit he news...
sometimes they make them pay back what they steal and demote them...
but not always...depending on how well they "fit the part"

Yes, I know. It is the video of how River Country looks today that was interesting. All the stuff that could have been sold, but was just left to rot. I can't explain it, but I really enjoy seeing the "as it was/ as it is...before/after" stuff. Yes, even the front of shop / working back of shop comparison stuff. That includes lights on views of dark rides and and blueprints of ride layouts. I guess it is just the geek in me. One of the highlights on my last park visit was talking to a CM about one of the video projection systems used in the Pirates ride.

Other people have done some even better attraction stuff, but it is probably better if I don't mention the links as I don't want to draw too much attention to them from the "Disney police" group. that might get them taken down.

I like his work and feel bad for him. You can tell he was really shaken up in the last video.

I am sorry the guy was banned, but...he's a adult, he knew the rules and the possiblity that he could be arrested or banned and he choose to ignore them.

He has no one to blame but himself and now wining to everyone is not classy.

Easy!

Easy with the name calling please. Adam may have made some poor choices by posting his fan driven material but I think "Idiot" is a bit harsh. If you haven't taken the time to visit his You Tube channel "Adam the woo" you should have a look. Adam is an urban explorer, and his material is very entertaining. He knew the risks and what would happen if he was discovered. He now has to live with those ramifications. Adam is far from an idiot!

I don't care what he is. If it says "cast members Only" and your not a "cast member" then you don't belong.

To say make a comment that he wants to... "satisfy a morbid curiosity" and...."I never received any emails from Disney on what I was doing was wrong." is just plain strange.

I was not defending his trespassing, I was addressing the name calling. He does not deserve the label "Idiot" any more than you do.

Can we say that he is a "Very silly boy"?
