Disney claims that it is a felony to take photos of their behind the scenes areas from your car, if you are driving on roads owned by Disney. Many of the roads near the Orlando theme park are actually private property. When you arrive at the gate to the Magic Kingdom parking lot, you have been on Disney property for 7 miles or so.

Any lawyer types here care to specify what specific felony is being committed by taking pictures?

After visiting Disney World with my kids during ButtSex Pride Day (without any notice), I will never spend another cent patronizing any Disney product, event, or theme park ever again. That goes for the grand kids too. I will make sure Disney is boycotted for generations.

I had to show up for jury selection recently (didn’t get picked). The lawyers for both sides asked a lot of really pointed questions about a particularly small facet of legal code and what potential jurists thought. Apparently the case hinged on whether the defendant entered an occupied building vs unoccupied vs would a reasonable person assume it was occupied. There was even discussion about whether it was even a building versus some other type of structure. Never found out the details, but I suspect theft from the back of a tractor-trailer rig with a sleeper cab. Either way, it made a big difference on the potential level of the crime. So I imagine that a “felony” as Disney is threatening takes a slanted eye view of some minor interpretation of trespassing? Although most trespassing is considered misdemeanor, so even there not a felony? Unless they prove the pictures would be used in some way that causes harm? Any competent defense lawyer should blow it out of the water, the signs are mostly for show is my guess.
