I'm guessing it would only be 'by chance' or 'after the fact' that they even know.

Agreed - not sure how they could manage this. There is no question that some registered offenders would be breaking the law by entering WDW, but Disney has no way to control that. Those on monitoring devices would likely be tagged by law enforcement, but those who are not would most likely go in and out with no one ever knowing.

I would guess most people have an MDE account, but that info could be fake.

Can you still just walk up to the ticket window and buy a one day ticket and enter without giving any personal info? I guess they would give you a card. I never considered how their system would work w/ no MDE account.

I don't know what is required to buy a ticket at the window, but they never see your ID for online purchases unless you are picking up a will call order. Every time we go I buy 5 tickets for our family. Those could have any name on them and Disney would never know the difference.

I would even question the legality of Disney running warrantless background checks on every name that runs through the system. I am not legally versed in the area, but I know we can't run a background check in the church without a signed authorization from the person who's background we are chcking. I don't see how Disney would simply be able to do it for everyone coming through.

Iím fairly sure that Disney does use facial recognition and compares outstanding warrants. There was someone who had embezzled a significant amount of money from the company where I am employed. He was arrested walking from the Magic Kingdom to the parking lot because Disney security notified the local police that he was on property and because he was ďnot a threatĒ they would let the authorities know when he left the park so they could apprehend him. So when you steal a few million $$ your first response should not be - Iím going to Disney World.

But you typically connect that ticket to an MDE account, right? I think that Disney could search names of registered sex offenders, as this guy apparently was, to compare with names on MDE. You could always use a fake name on MDE, of course. I doubt this is the same thing as a background check.

From a little research: 2014 - "Because Disney is a private company, they are allowed to check guests' names and run them through the sex offender databases, removing those whose names show up." - Leah Zanolla

That reminds me, I don't know about now, but when I went to DL in 2005, every Princess was accompanied by a Prince. I thought it was so nice to see, but now I'm thinking that there might have been a good benefit, in addition-to protect the princesses!

That should be the handler’s job. There’s already enough concern about Disney princesses teaching young girls they need a man to rescue them! Every character greeting has a handler or two.
