Guest Arrested for Bringing Loaded Gun to Transportation and Ticket Center at Walt Disney World, States 6-Year-Old Was Supposed to “Watch Over It”

Last updated:

Yet another gun incident has been reported at the Walt Disney World Resort, this time taking place at the Transportation & Ticket Center, where a guest was arrested for carrying a concealed loaded 9mm gun—and attempting to ditch it behind a planter.

One of the AdventHealth temperature screening tents at the Ticket & Transportation Center in Walt Disney World.

According to the Orlando Sentinel’s Gabrielle Russon, the guest, named Marcia Temple of Lithonia, Georgia, blamed her 6-year-old in the police report, stating he was “supposed to be watching the gun.” A member of the AdventHealth temperature check team noticed her take her purse (which contained the gun) from the stroller and leave it behind a planter near the tent. They then alerted Disney Security of the issue. The Orange County Deputy on duty followed up by asking Temple why she’d brought a gun to Walt Disney World.

Temple did not have a concealed weapons permit, and was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed firearm. She is also now banned from Walt Disney World property.

Watching the gun do what?

It was stupid to bring a gun to Disney, very stupid to ditch it like that, and incredibly stupid to just walk past the guest lockers to do it there.

Kids these days! It’s like you can’t even trust a 6-year-old with a gun anymore!

What a mom! Poop hits the fan and she throws her kid under the stroller.
