  • [Question] Does Disney blacklist anyone from the parks?

    I was reading about some woman that tried to sue Disney about a fight she got into at the Mad Tea Party. She claimed that Disney was negligent...blah blah blah. She didnt get anything but embarassed in court but anyways, I want to know if Disney can or has blacklisted anyone from the coming to the parks. I used to work in a customer service environment and I knew of managers that had certain customers blacklisted from even entering the building based on previous ridiculousness they had caused in the store.

    Does Disney do this??? If not, they should!

    I know my nephew got his annual pass taken away from him for smoking marijuana in the parking lot. Unfortunately I have no clue if that means he couldn't get in if he just bought a regular day ticket. But I do know things like that do happen.

      As a teenager, my dad was kicked out of the Park multiple times for spitting on the Skyway and other stupid things like that.....

      No idea if someone could be blacklisted, though.

        The answer to the question is, yes. People can be banned from the parks.

          Do you have any idea what types of offenses could lead to this?

              I wish they would ban some of the people who act like morons. Swearing throughout the park, making out, the list goes on....

                If you buy a ticket online and go direct to the turn styles I don't see how they could keep someone from randomly going in. I know they can ban AP'er from going in or buying another AP but a one day park ticket doesn't require a name to buy it. I don't know much but in my humble opinion, I'm guessing banning a person is an urban myth.

                  How could they ban someone from the park? Do they ask for ID when purchasing a regular ticket? I've been an AP for so long now I've forgotten the normal procedure of purchasing a ticket.

                    You are correct, but I'm pretty sure it's done like a restraining order to where if they are caught on property then then could face criminal charges or at least escorted off property by police or security. Of course this is just me guessing on how and what happens.

                      That fight actually happened at WDW, not Disneyland. And it happened 2 or 3 years ago I believe.

                      And I actually have a friend who was banned from Disneyland for a couple years. I can't remember what it is she did to earn that though. I just remember her mentioning she had been banned from the park for 2 years.

                        Not ban per say, but revoke the right of someone to purchase/use an annual pass. Only reason I've know them to do so are violent crimes in the park. Ie, assault a CM, current pass is revoked for remainder of year and you can not purchase a new one until one year after expiration of said AP.

                        Thought with all the ways you have to buy an AP now without a ticketing CM directly involved in the transaction, I see this as being harder to catch now. I suppose if you get caught with your revocation still in effect, they would also revoke the new AP you bought.

                          I worked at a venue where a few people were banned, and that's how it worked at our place. It wasn't Disney but I'm sure that they might have something similar. The people who were banned were generally those who had committed actual crimes--they had either stalked/harassed performers or they had been violent or made threats. The venue was legally allowed to refuse service to them, and they often had restraining orders that prohibited them from coming within x feet of the venue.

                          They were very, very serious about keeping these people out once they were blacklisted. They gave photos and very detailed descriptions of the bls to the staff, and anyone who saw them on property had to call security immediately. There was one woman who was stalking a performer and she did end up getting arrested that way...she showed up again and someone recognized her.

                            yes, it was in 2008 but the verdict in her case was finally decided within the last day or so. The jury decided that Disney was not at fault and that she would get nothing.

                            The only reason I asked this question is because, obviously, Disney has all of her info and could blacklist her and the other guilty party, if they wanted to. I would.

                              If I'm not mistaken, wasn't John Lennon or another member of The Beatles banned from Disneyland for some time?

                                  Brezhnev was banned from visiting Disneyland during the cold war (and he was VERY upset about it), so yeah anyone can be blacklisted.

                                  There is a woman who took off her shirt to display a "hidden Mickey", one needed to do a double take to notice she was topless, and she is apparently blacklisted for life. However since she isn't high profile like Brezhnev, I'm sure she could get back in.

                                  Also, I happen to know a girl who was blacklisted in the 80's for smoking pot, she now goes to the parks often with her kids and has a pretty funny story to tell to boot.

                                  Any private company can "refuse service", however time usually heals all offenses.

                                      Not to pick historical nits, but I think that was Nikita Khrushchev in 1959. He wasn't "banned" in the sense the OP is asking about, but had his visit canceled due to security concerns.
