Trouble in Downtown Disney?
Written by Karin S
I just read online in the Orlando Sentinel that a device similar to a pipe bomb was found in a dumpster at Downtown Disney around 12:30 am today. Fortunately, no one was hurt and no damage was done, except to the trash recepticle. Downtown Disney has been in the news lately - there was the couple who claimed to have been kidnapped from the parking lot; 4 Florida State football recruits were banned from Disney for life when they didn't leave the area when asked (the ban has since been reversed). According to the local police and Disney security, they are trying to keep people from loitering as there has been an increase of gang activity in the Orlando area.Tweet
I am interested in your opinions on a couple of topics.
First - Do you support Disney in their efforts to control the actions of the visitors at Downtown Disney?
Second - With the Fourth of July coming up, the increase in summer visitors and the current world-wide concern with terrorism, do you think the problems of the past few weeks will result in fewer visitors to the area?
